Thread: Another C5 RS6 on the block.

    Finally. Arrived in the dark last night. Must say the driver was a real champ, everything the company should be. Unable to meaningfully inspect so heart in mouth until I got home. Nothing seen so far albeit it needs a wash as enclosed transport did not mean clean. Apparently the train is where the dirt happens, as I'm told.

    So, the allroad has had to be banished to outside after the last 5 years in the garage.

    A browse has so far not found any issues from the transport, fingers crossed. There are a few things to do and a few things noted. Someone in the past has spent a pile on this car with the Wagners and exhaust plus some alloy DV's that stood out today. Have to say that everywhere is amazingly clean. The engine bay is like new in all the out of the way places, no bugs in the radiator etc. The engine bay is a lot more open than the RS4, with vents straight into the bay from the wheel wells. You'd thing that that would throw in a pile of water, mud and "stuff" from the roads, but not.

    The journey begins. Just need to find out where it starts.

    Sunny data here in Sydney, hopefully for you too so you can get it out and inspect it in decent light.

    Intermittently cloudy and sunny but blowing a gale. Enough for the bins up the street to get blown over. It should ease later today.

    The grass is always greener........... a pair of near on 20 year old cars that have more parts nla by the day, the 6 is economical in the inverse sense at a time when fuel is heading up. Absolutely fun to own but never forget that guy who spent $64,000 on his. It'll never be me but always smart to remember that speed cost money, how fast do YOU want to go?

    I reckon 500chp is where the line is. That's circa 4 sec 0 to 100 plenty fast for street cruising and SMT's. Beyond that it appears to be a love hate relationship between time on / off road and what's that noise / leak. and inverse hyperbolic curve on funds invested vs hip pocket return. Smart money is buy one all done st stock pricing and hopefully it comes with a bunch of factory parts. Good buyIng sir.

    Agreed. I need some time with this to get my head around what it offers before any changes made, if at all. This has all the essential parts fitted but no transmission upgrade done and that was a known on purchase. Came with the usual box of receipts, a cam timing bar and crank lock, workshop manual etc.

    Another interesting find is there is a knob cast into the front suspension upright that can rip the side out of your tyre if you choose the wrong one. Now have to read up threads on the right tyres.
