C7 RS6 test drive
« on: February 08, 2015, 07:42:58 am »
Wow, these things are fast!
Good comfee/sport hybrid, all the modern options like adaptive cruise, cameras, new gen MMI, bla bla, the only thing holding me back is the price !

Anyone have one or a friend with one and has any feedback?
I was looking at a B8 RS4, but the RS6 looks like a better option right now.

I'd go the the  C7 6 over the B8 4 too I think, at least at the RS level. What about C7 S6 Avant? Cheaper and still very very quick and capable. Also have cylinder on demand?

The only thing to worry about is the depreciation I think. I've driven a couple and they are nice - although do feel a very heavy car.

Black is the only option. A wise man once said;

"Once you've had black - you'll never go back"

I quite like the white actually, but could be a different story in the flesh.

here is a good walk around comparison

The NZ cars have silver trim thou, as opposed to black on these.

I will look to sell it privately once I collect the new car and tidy it up a little (leather clean, final touch cut and polish etc). I'm a big believer in presenting it well. 
I'll be sad to see it go, its a fun handling car and goes especially well after its recent carbon clean. If I had the space I would keep it!

Monster of a car, nice choice. Out of interest, what settled you on the RS6?

All of the youtube driver reviews!
B8 RS4 is nice, but its a poor implementation relative to the old B7's brilliance and C7 RS6.
And... with the facelift RS6 about to hit the roads the discounts offered made the price gap between the B8 RS4 and C7 RS6 very close.
