Pros

all the smiles & thumbs up you get from people on road, the power to stomp most cars and the rarity

Cons

Audi recommends timing belt every 35000, Navigation system wasnt that great in 2003...

True Rare German Muscle Car! — Just drove home last week from Chicago with my mint condition RS6 34k daytona grey/ black w carbon fiber interior, fully loaded including summer package. Best 800 miles Ive ever spent in a car (not like my 2004 A6 4.2 isnt incredible) but the RS6 is RS-SICK! Everybody looks at the RS even if they dont know what it is, with its wide body with awesome exhaust sound. Looking forward to getting the A.W.E. chip mod to go from 450/415 to 520/532! I dont have a single complaint from inside to out, appearance and performance. Knew exactly what I was getting into... Although I havent brought to get Audi service yet... Will be purchasing extended warranty through Audi.

Pros

Sledgehammer acceleration, all-weather road superiority, hear it before you see it.

Cons

Thirsty, maintenance can get expensive, strangers want to race.

Whole-family Hole Shots! — Amazingly tractable at low speeds and breathtakingly capable at higher speeds and it gets there quickly. Fortunately the standard Brembo cross-drilled brakes are there to bring you right back down. Quattro AWD will keep you out of the ditch unless you get too careless. Very nicely furnished inside and out; trunk is a little tight as they moved the battery back there to even out the weight distribution. Still not equaled (even by the later S6 and S8) after 9 years!

The Ultimate Race Car For Public Roads — The ultimate race car for public roads. Discrete but still very potent. 4,2 ltr V8 with 450 hp. Less then 5 sec from zero to 100km/h, and the best, the consumption is quite low, only 0,85 pr.mile and the rest is pure hobby. Not bad at all..... and the color is just brilliant, not a one dozen type.

. — Car was at first amazing, but after having driven and owned a new Audi S4 with V8 it deedn't seemed to me as amazing as it was the first time I tired it. Automatic/Sequential gearbox is to slow, which really removes a lot of fun.

Pros

just the sound of the engine would make my day.
it would literally press your back into the seat when you put your foot down.
and it didn't telegraph it's power.

Cons

it was expensive. and i was a little afraid to keep it after the service warranty ran out.

It Was A Monster — it was a car that i looked forward to driving at any opportunity. the suspension was really hard and you'd feel every bump in it. but it was worth it. maybe it's because i'm still learning to get more out my rs4's manual gearbox (in other words i'm a bit timid with it not that good a driver), but if i'm honest i may have i think prefered the RS6.

Pros

Extremely fast, Fun, Quattro all-wheel drive, Spacious, Extremely reliable, Ultra-rare, Decent gas mileage for the power, Conservative styling (it's a sleeper...very stealthy), One of the safest cars ever built.

Cons

Very expensive ($92,500 new), Very expensive to maintain out of warranty, Very heavy (4,025 lbs...not the best for cornering, but it does a hell of a job for its size), Astronomical insurance.

A Beast Of A Car...the 4-door Road Rocket! — The RS6 was introduced in the United States as a limited production vehicle in 2003; only 860 were produced for the American market. The car combines an elegant interior - carbon-fiber trim, brushed aluminum panels, navigation, On- Star, Sirius Satellite Radio, and a suede headliner - with an awesome powerplant...a 4.2 liter, twin-turbo V8 producing 450 hp and 415 ft/lbs torque which in turn propels this two-ton beast to 60 in just over 4 seconds. The RS6 can reach a top speed of approximately 200 mph unrestricted. This car is a legend for those who have heard of it, and I will probably never get rid of it.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

A 450hp Power Car Your Spouse Will Love — The big advantage is 450hp (mine is now over 500hp due to mods)that provides a luxury ride that your spouse and your high end clients will love. Very comfortable with the get up and go. If you are looking for pure go fast, not the best car as it is heavy due to the luxuries. But if you want a perfect blend of high performance and luxury.. then it's a great car. At the time of this writing the gadgetry of the car is out-dated (I had to put in aftermarket navigation, etc). It suits me perfectly. I took off the badges as the car is for me, not passers by to oogle over. So, for car is stealthy - my secret weapon. Every once in a while an enthusiast or a youngin that reads all the mags points at my car excitedly while mouthing "RS6, RS6?". I simply nod my head.. and daydream about that Vermont road with nobody on it..
