Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"Bought mine pre-owned with 9,500 for over $20k less than MSRP new. Love the exterior and interior quality. Beast of an engine with the roar from the exhaust package. Ride is a bit harsh with the 20-inch rims - but really who cares. This German beauty purrs and rumbles to your heart's content. I love the exclusivity as well - only 1,500 per year hit US ground in 2013-2015. This is a civilized beast of a car... Love it..."
Pros: "Drop dead gorgeous and a religious experience"
Cons: "Do your back a favor and stay on smooth pavement"

"I got the car in December to replace my much-loved 2010 S5, following three previous A6s, two of which were 4.2 liter V-8s. The RS5 is an order of magnitude better than the S5, from the sheer power to the way it handles; indeed, with the new electric steering I find myself looking for 90 degree turns because they're so much fun: who knew? One of the packages I selected had adaptive cruise control, which I wouldn't have picked on its own, but have learned to really appreciate on turnpike driving. It works better than advertised and saves constantly tapping the brakes when someone decides to slow down or pull in front of me w/o bothering to signal. Do yourself a favor and spring for the $1k sports exhaust. If you do, you'll never have to take a Prozac - just park in the driveway and rev the engine. Even better, the system blows the exhaust every time you downshift. I plan to keep this one and drive it until my reflexes die. Can't wait until spring."
"I have had many nice cars (Porsches, Ferrari, Jaguars and many Audis) but my new RS5 is the best car ever! It is fast, reliable and fun to drive. For the price of a new Rs5 you get a two year old Panamera 4S or an old Ferrari Modena or Aston Martin and neither of them are as fast as the Rs5.
And you can use the car every day without any problems."
