A little over 5 1/2 years of love and hate (not so much hate as wish it didn't break). My dealership got to the trade in number I was after today so in a few days after I pull out my RNSE tomorrow the car gets turned in and I drive home in a new S5 cabriolet. Will not be the same at all but i need a car under warranty that I can really enjoy as now I treat my RS like a precious piece of china off warranty for fear of the tranny going at any time. Fun part about the trade in number is that it is higher than the same dealership offered me over a year ago for it. I think the car has hit the bottom (last year) and has bobbed back up a bit finally. 89.7K on the clock.
Had one last good kill story today driving from the body shop to the dealership. A couple was out in their brand new Gran Sport Corvette convertible as it was a great day in Chicago today and I rumbled by in appreciation with a thumbs up as their car looked nice. He then wanted to play so he worked his way in front of me and then took off in a huge clearing. I wasn't expecting it so he got a really good jump but i reeled him in somewhat slowly and passed him. Smiles all around. Good last triple digit adventure as I doubt i will do it again before i drop it off. Car is perfect inside and out so its time to run fast before anything breaks.
By far the most impressive all around car I have owned or realistically i will ever own. If i had a warranty still going I would have kept it but I don't have deep enough pockets to risk it otherwise. Next RS6 to the US will have to be really impressive to top the original.
