Newbie here with first rs6 c5

Post by ShazRS6 » Tue Jul 10, 2018 9:50 pm

Guys just purchased my rs6

2004 rs6 c5
202000 miles
Half leather interior
Wagner intercooler
Stage 2 remap
Fsh by Audi and mrc
Misano red (I think lol)
Miltek exhaust system catback
Rear blinds
Sunroof

I’m new to the rs6 scene,had a few Audi’s but mainly had BMW e30

As I have my own workshop and specialise in them

Anyway Some of you may know it
Was looking for a while but the itch was soo bad and ended up with this one

Needs one work

Here’s what I have down so far

Changed suspension from standard to KW
the shocks were totally shot and needed changing ASAP

So I managed to get hold of a nearly new set of KW Coilovers

Also done new topmounts while it was off

Stage 2 machine polish

Decat done with backbox removal
Miltek resonators


The list to do is-

Discs and pads all round
Driveshaft gaitor
Fit white leather interior
Front end respray and rear bumper

How do I upload pics?

Welcome.
You sure about the shocks? The previous owner maintained the standard DRC very well and it's only a matter of a few weeks ago that he parted with the RS; strange if they've deteriorated that quickly.
