RS "Sports" Adaptive Air Susupension same as Ordinary A6 Air Susupension?

Hi people,

Is the RS "Sports" air suspension the same as the air suspension I have on my standard A6 avant? both cars are C7.

My RS6 Avant doesn't have air ride but is quite acceptable in comfort mode.
I would like to raise and lower the ride height, though and a concern I have, is that I want 22" wheels and fear that without air suspension, I'll regret that choice.

I'd be annoyed if the RS6 had the same suspension as an A6.

Not as annoyed as I was when I went to collect the car.

It was listed as having air suspension and had been upgraded to DRC.

Settled that with seller and now I'm asking questions. :oops:
