Of course- not available in the US -- but one can dream huh?

4500 lbs and 580 Direct Injected ponies

What awesome choices:
- steering wheels
- Wheels
- ANY custom color u want (AWESOME)
- look at the 3D Navi

Really BMW -- get ur shiit together -- the m5 may be a little better balanced ... but the options on this car alone, make this the better deal.

cant stand the avant audi's. just ruins a good looking car and makes it look terrible. the regular sedan is nice tho other than the fact it looks identical to every other audi.

I'm sorry, but find me a more handsome wagon in the market. M5 Touring? Not even a chance.

Yea the RS6 is no joke. Top Gear did a good piece on it, I'm not a huge fan of wagons but this is one I would make an exception for.

Indeed it is. I can see why some wagons are reserved for the European markets such as the RS4 Avant and M5 Touring. It won't sell as well as the sedan counterpart. Why the RS6 sedan isn't coming I have no clue.

That's actually exactly what i'd say. Have seen both of these from up close in person, i'd pick the M5 touring over it anyday and every Msport 5 touring over any A6 avant sline.

No discussion though, they both are really good looking estates. They just have their own style.

really looking forward to the new gen M5 & M5 touring

No option to row your own though! Despite the time penalty, give me an M5 wagon with three pedals.

The RS6 and the E class AMG will always make the M5 look underpowered.

Versus the old M5 or soon-to-come M5? Jumping the gun if its over the new M5. heh Is the V10 the same Gallardo/R8 power plant? If it is and makes the same soundtrack as a Gallardo the car will be heavenly. Though, big saloon aren't my cup of tea.

I am an Audi Avant owner in addition to my M3 and would sell both in an instant if I could get an RS6 Avant. Wagons are way more practical and the Audi versions look better than their sedan counterparts. Also remember that the RS6 is as tuneable as a 335i for power. Pretty easy to put it around 700 HP.

There is one in the US that the CEO of Audi USA drives. Lucky bastard.

Wheels? Nothing OEM is better than what you could get for the same or cheaper in aftermarket...

Steering wheel? Yeah... I'm going to decide on buying one car over the other over a steering wheel. NOT!

3D Nav? neat, anndddd the maps will be out of date and so won't the system in 6 months.

I think YOU need to get your shit together and educate yourself on what REALLY makes a car better than the other.
