... a familiar car albeit in saloon form.

*spits on floor* Saloon!?!?
Ha ha! Are we still having this old argument?
Well I did have a C6 ‘loon. I loved both of them. The RS7 has a mahoosive boot as well but the 6 does look far more aggressive.
Nice to have such choices I guess....

I love saloons. My point was that it is not a saloon it's a sportback.

Fair one-it was a long week!
Thoughts on the residuals FL/Pre FL and also RS7 to 6?
Audi found me a brand new S5 with every option fitted but at a crazy price-£58,745. Even with a £4500 dealer contribution. I could get a lower specc’d nearly new RS5 or similar for that. The S5s/S4s seem to be depreciating quite badly it seems. I was really impressed with the S5, didn’t seem much slower than the B8 RS5 I tested as well.

RS7? I'd go for this one:

Heated steering wheel, but Voodoo....yum.
Current 2015 RS5 Cab (Panther, most of the toys - except straigtheners), 2012 Discovery 4 family wagon.
Gone 2014 Golf R (Loaded, total sh!te), 2015 Cayman GTS, PDK and stuff, 2014 RS4, Sepang with most of the toys, SQ5, S4 lots of other cars - nothing of interest to be honest.

Lovely colour and spec that. But probably over his price range.

Definitely! It is a lively car though.
The only reason I moved away from my RS6 was it was costing me too much every month. Now that prices have come down a bit I can get back into one (or a 7). My foray into AMG has not been a happy one unfortunately.
Price range is £40-50k ideally

Ah ok, just tell him you'll do him a favour and take it off his hands for 50 - 'the market's turned, bruv'.

Always a buyers market....as I’m finding out with my A45. Prices have taken a dive recently and no-one knows why (the new A Class is now out but the new A45 won’t be out until next year) but they have slipped a bit. Glad I didn’t buy mine new (they aren’t worth the asking price new trust me) but selling it is proving more problematic than normal. I absolutely detest selling cars privately.

Book for mine is currently just under £27k. I paid £37k last October fully loaded. Most a dealer has offered me is £30k but that’s because they know me.
When it goes I’ll

Should never have sold the RS6. I’d wager you’ve done anything else but save cash!!

The irony of the whole mess isn’t lost on me that’s for sure!
As a bonus I’ve been saving over £400 a month since I moved on from the 6, however that’s got me into a car I now actively hate and RS6’s have now come down in price since last year (the £70k car I bought has now effectively become a £58-60k car) so yes it’s probably been a false economy and a mahoosive pain in the arse!!

My mate test drove a 7 and a 6 back to back and says the 7 is a lot noisier inside...fwiw.
