RS4 b7 vs b9
« on: December 04, 2019, 10:14:45 pm »
Has anyone upgraded from a b7 to a new b9 rs4? I know Iíll miss the noise of the v8 in the b7, but does the newer b9 have a similar uniqueness or character which sets it apart. Speed is speed and feel itís a bit wasted on NZ roads... kinda feel like I might regret selling the b7

to be fair, the B9 has some pretty amazing noises itself. Much nicer to drive. Much quicker and uses less fuel in the grand scheme.

So it really depends if you want to make the change or even like the B9. As it's all subjective in the end of the day.
Just be cause I like the B9, does not mean you would.

take one for a drive and make your own conclusion in the end.

In that price range C7 RS6 could also be worth considering?

Love my rs6, a slight porker around corners with air, but itís a brutt of out right power that makes up for that.

I get it, the rs6 is awesome but a different beast. I would cross shop a rs6 with a hellcat jeep. But having a b7 rs4 and a hellcat Jeep literally draining the world of oil. Rs6 is really a one garage but I kinda need a truck too but the b7 has character.
