2002 C5 RS6 in Holland

Post by anditsoundslikebells » Thu Feb 13, 2020 6:40 pm

Hi!
I am lucky enough to have got my hands on a LHD RS6 in my favourite colour! It is in Dakota Grey with black leather, a bunch of options and is very tidy for it's 140k kms. Very happy with it!
That said, I've been in the VAG world since I was 16 (aircooled and watercooled) and won't be able to leave it standard.
It came with KW V3 coilovers and a full exhaust from O.CT tuning in Switzerland. Other than that it is standard.
I am thinking to tidy up the original 18" 8.5j 9 spokes, wind down the coilovers a fraction, get some H&R 10mm spacers, H&R rollbars, maybe a Stage 1 remap, wrap the grill surround, front bumper intake and front light details.
Having read a bit on this forum there seems to be a few high quality tuners here in the UK such as MRC.
If anyone has any Dutch or West German connections or recommendations they would be greatly appreciated!
Looking forward to learning from this forum!
Cheers!

Welcome, looks well in Daytona :lol:

I know a few Dutch guys (I'm in the flower trade) & they say that the RS6 commands a prestige price over in Holland; they didn't believe the price I paid here in the UK for mine....made me contemplate exporting a few to the Netherlands :idea:

Hi,
Unfortunately all cars are expensive here given the high tax. Seems RS6 even more so!
Took me a while to come to terms with it but it's all relative I guess. As long as I stay in this market it's all good. (So I tell myself)
