The RS6 has its own collective noun for them. It's "an orphanage of bastard bolts".
Daytona RS6 C5 Avant. Viper'd, Billies, Waggers, MTM box brain, C6 stoppers, xcarlink, R8 coolant cap (woohoo)
///M3 E46 -- XC90 (V8, natch)

What's the collective noun for RS6s?

A money-pit of RS6s?

All much too miserable!! :bash:

My vote goes for a "Grin" of RS6's!!

Ive always argued that the measure of RS6 travel is not MPG, but GPM - "Grins per mile"!! :boots: :boots:

Enjoy your Beast!!

Smiles per gallon always works. Lets be honest the last thing you buy an RS6 for is to be cheap.....
