    My 997S has a new playmate...

    An '07 Audi RS4








    Re: My 997S has a new playmate...

    Looks like fun. Let us know how it compares?

    Re: My 997S has a new playmate...

    Awesome ride man, good choice and nice colour! I test drove one of these babies at the launch here in SA and I must tell you it is a real beast! Definately worth it! Congratulations! Let us know on what your impressions are

    Re: My 997S has a new playmate...

    I mentioned to the wife that when the 997 goes I'll get something like an RS4. But, to have both is pure Nirvana!

    If that's not good enough, you have a triple garage.

    Jealous is not the word.

    Re: My 997S has a new playmate...

    How come you didn't get the flat bottomed steering wheel?

    Re: My 997S has a new playmate...

    8000 RPM redline, nice!

    Hey why stop at 8000 when the redline goes all the way to 9000!

    Re: My 997S has a new playmate...

    Very nice car. I'm an Audi fan. Love the color.

    Re: My 997S has a new playmate...

    I'm sure it is an excellent car in many significant ways.

    I just don't get WTF they are trying to do with that front end grille and "bumper." It completely ruins it for me.

    Re: My 997S has a new playmate...

    Exellent.
    I drove one the other day... the engine is great!!!

    Re: My 997S has a new playmate...

    I too drove one recently. Very nice! The engine and the sound is...oh the sound! Congrats! If I ever need to get a 4 seater to replace the 997 it would be this (or the next M3).

    North America unfortunately doesn't get the flat-bottom steering wheel.

    Why is the bottom flat? To ease getting in and out of car?

    Gotta say that would be a good thing for our cars too. My right leg (usa car) has to be extended all the way to get it past under the wheel when getting out of car.

    Sounds like a great idea if that's the reason.

    Re: My 997S has a new playmate...

    North America also doesn't get the same sports/racing seats and some other goodies.. Safety reasons I think.

    Re: My 997S has a new playmate...

    NA version don't get start button, racing seats (use S4 seats instead), and no flat bottom gallardo style steering wheel... but with the lightened engine, quattro, and those V8 power... there's no doubt that the RS4 is a beast!

    I don't imagine that it is safety reasons for the wheel, as the new TT has the flat bottom wheel.

    Nice ride, I have the little brother to your RS4

    Mine is a 05 S4 with a few Mods

    I have to agree with you. I like Audis as well. I've had a couple of them over the years. But the front makes it look like a freakin Jetta. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but make them look different.
