    Who owns one? What are your likes and dislikes? Any known issues?

    I'm thinking that this might be my next car, I'm in absolut fucking love with them. :noes:

    So you can afford a $105,000cdn car, but can't afford an av?

    I've got one. The RS-4 is 8 months old and have done 10 600 Km, drive quite sporty. It replaced a S-4 and is absolutely superior to the S-4 (performance, handling, sound, fuel consumption). So far no issues. Fuel consumption averages about 15L/100Km (mostly driving to work fast). It's a fantastic daily driver, but it also got me several points on my driving licence.
    The negatives.... when it's extremely cold then the motor farts around for about 30 seconds before it becomes smooth. I got the "wildleder" (suede?) package and the steering wheel is starting to look grimy. Get the regular leather wheel. And make sure you don't get that shitty telephone holder on the side of the centre console, rather order the Bluetooth.
    Once you have your car, go to the dealer and order a pair of the Euro bucket seats.... they are the BEEZ-NEEZ!!!


    ps: I have to add that I'm an Audi employee, but that does not affect my objective view on the car.

    Thanks for the info.

    Funny about the engine on cold days, my old 3.0 Z4 used to do that as well. I've also wondered about the steering wheel, BMW does the same thing on their ZCP equipped M3s.

    Now I just need to convince the woman. :noes: She's hooked on the BMW Germany delivery/Italy pick up deal.

    Seconding the suede steering wheel thought, stay away. I've had one on my 330ci/6 zhp and it goes to shit in about a year.

    What you guys are talking about is where it will idle at about 2/3 the rpms it normally does, right?

    That's a cold start process the ECU will run through to help minimize wear/damage on cold starts. It's very normal.

    Audi has euro delivery. And you can drive it to italy and stay in a cheap hotel... That way, when you get back to the states, you own an awesome audi and not a belly button bmw. :rofl:

    Mine hates the cold, usually takes 15-20 seconds before its smooth as well.
    The suede isn't an option here, at least it wasn't last time I checked.
    definitely get the premium package, its got the bluetooth and the RNS-E.
