Incoming owner returning to RS

Post by stevo55 » Sat Mar 14, 2020 11:31 pm

Returning to RS after an absence of a few years. Went to AMG (huge mistake) then back to M (M3 CP which was excellent) but sold that 8 months ago.
Was hell bent on a return to an RS6 but needed to test drive an RS5 first. Jumped on a massively specc’d one at Finchley Road Audi that came onto Audi UK site and all it took was one test drive and I was hooked! There was a RS6 PE next to it (that was my natural choice) and I was surprised at how dated it looked. It’s still a car I lust after but the newer platforms and tech are so far ahead of what’s a 7 year old platform now.
Loved the drive and worked a good deal with them. Haven’t seen one so blacked out before-is it part of an edition or just full black optics?
Have also included the spec in photos as I’m not sure if there’s anything missing? Looks pretty fully loaded to me.
Does anyone have digital brochure for the 2018/19 MY including pricing please? Apparently it was well over £80k new and I can believe it. Also comes with £2k worth of PPF which is nice.
Anyway-I pick her up Monday and can’t wait! Been too long but back again.
Will be asking for advice on bits and pieces (exhaust note needs sorting as it’s a bit quiet for one).

Any photos for reference?
First mod is booked for next week-full alcantara wheel at Royal Steering Wheels then (when stock is there as they have none currently) a non res Milltek Race end of the month. May also get the side 'RS5' sign blacked out as well just to complete the stealth look.
Still very happy (although I haven't even done 1000 miles in 3 months) and once the sound is sorted thats pretty much it for now.
