Hi old M5 buddies,

Well after my old M5 (beastpower's car), I now sold my TT and Cayenne and got a replacement (RS6). I was looking at the new E55 but no AWD to go skiing. The new M5 not for me as I am not in love with the styling.

2003 Daytona Gray with Black Interior, CF Trim, Miltek Full Exhaust/Flow cats, GIAC software with 3 modes (91 Stock, 91 race and 100 race), RS6+ Pedals, Euro Front and Rear lights, Sportec 19's with 285 rubbers, Clear Armor protection, Valentine One (needs to be hardwired), Sirius, Diverter Valves.

Not dynoed yet but should be around 540+HP/550+TQ on 100 gas.

Hey, Fred -

Welcome back. I sold my TT too. Took it in the shorts. Aaargh.

I drove an RS6 - very impressive car, and they fixed a lot of the sins with the stock A6 in terms of transmission behavior. Still, I found the steering feel a little less "connected" than the M5, even though it is probably faster in a turn thanks to the AWD. But I only had a 1/2 hour street drive. I'll be interested to hear what you think of it after you've logged some track miles.
