Only available in Avant? I can understand that if you want a coupe get the RS5, but what about a saloon?

Wouldn't bother me too much I suppose, I'd be happy with an Avant.

Nothing new or outrageous really. Hope the next M3 is different. I won't hold my breath.

I was at the Geneva show with a friend who had 3 B7 RS4s. He was very excited about this car after receiving a phone call from Audi asking him if he wanted added to the list. In the flesh it was a bit of a let down compared to the B7. I'm talking looks only obviously.

For once it seems like a decent review of an Audi. They have seen the point of the car. Civilised enough to take the family away for the weekend or drop the kids off at school with the dog in the back. Yet focussed enough for a B road blast.

Nice car - Wrong engine... Audi dropped a huge bollock with opting for this over the new 4.0 TFSI.. The 4.2 FSI is well known for making well under it's claimed power figures..

Interesting to see the optional 174mph.

Does this mean you could order the option when specing the car at UK dealers?

Or would this only be available for other countries, for example Germany?

Right, wasn't aware. Thought Audi, BMW and Mercedes all stuck to 155! Except for the R8, McLaren type exotica.
