    Ron,
    According to my friend from quattro Gmbh there wont be any RS4 soon. RS5 will get updated 4.2FSI with about 450hp/460Nm, 7speed S Tronic and some nice new suspension gimmicks... Sport Diff will be standard as well.

    Audi plans extensive change in image for RS models in the future-they will be more sporty! Normal S models will be almost as sporty as current RS models(old RS4 and new RS6 as examples).

    In the mean time here are two drive impressions about new S4...

    BTW, R8 V10 is delayed for 2009 intro. Direct demand from P.

    Wow is that because of the intro of the 997.2 TT?

    Thanks for the into. the RS range will be much more intense then.

    RS - racing
    S - very sporty
    S-line - sports package on normal Audi?

    thanks Kreso

    Re: RS4 and kreso

    Thanks kreso.

    I was thinking about a S4 for a daily drive but was wondering if there is a RS4 in the line I'd wait for that.

    I'm still #11 for the CTS-V as a daily drive too but if S4 and Caddy will be close price wise I think I go with the Caddy for a daily drive.

    Wow, the CTS-V is sold out? or wait-listed over there?? In this economy.. I personally love the CTS-V. Caddy is doing extremely well in these hard times.

    Re: RS4 and kreso

    Ron,
    Look at extensive S4 press release that I posted in New Audi S4 thread.
    What is US price for CTS-V?

    The dealer close to me promised me MSRP and yes their allocation for 2009 and 2010 has been filled already. As dealer said my allocation should come up for Sep. or Oct. 2009 and I put my deposit while ago, I think right after Detroit Auto Show in January.

    But with this economy I wouldn't be surprised if people start backing out.

    WTF, acceleration with the DSG takes 0.2 sec LONGER

    However, the extra gear in the seven-speed 'box means an extra change is needed to reach 62mph, dropping the benchmark sprint time to 5.3 seconds.



    Audi fanboy Georg is wrong about the xDrive system in the BMW X6, it also works under trailing throttle.

    Indeed, how can you say no to 550 hp and a f**ing mountain of torque

    Besides, once you start loading all the options (DSG, Sport diff, Drive Select, radar cruisecontrol.....) the S4 looks like it will be pretty expensive.

    That's true.

    Re: RS4 and kreso

    Just for comparison CTS-V base price in Germany is Euro 74990. New S4 base price is Euro 50950. So, even with full options S4 is about Euro 15K cheaper in Germany then CTS-V, not to talk about resale value of Caddy in EU...

    Using the configurator on audi.de, I managed to load a A4 3.0TDI with Euro 22370 worth of options, which would will put price of a S4 at Euro 70+. How many options are available for the CTS-V?

    Re: RS4 and kreso

    S4 is better equiped then A4 3.0TDI. Many items are standard... For example S4 with S Tronic(that I would NOT order), Sport Diff, Navi, Alcantara/leather, Electric seats and B&O is about Euro 67K...
