      I'm going to check with quattro GmbH. I doubt they've built many RS 4s yet. Identifying this specific car shouldn't be that hard.

      I don't know. I will ask. My guess is that it will be change that goes into effect with MY2013 for the USA because that's about the time we get this facelift as well as all the other B8 product plus A6 2.0 TFSI.

      Fairly subtle updates all around... more importantly when does the 3.0TDI show up?

      I was gonna say. I guess the batteries need some cooling, but not nearly as much as an IC engine... therefore not requiring the huge drag-inducing opening at the front of the car. AC Condenser, maybe.... ?

      No, that's it. A source of ours who works near the Audi Forum had a chance to snap them. We'll ask them if he can get any more if he sees it again.

      If I had to guess I'd say they're the same as the 20-inch wheel option on RS 5.

      It would seem to me that there is an even larger mobility play at-hand between Audi and Ducati. As fuel gets to be more and more expensive along with many new emerging markets wanting cheaper (read: cheaper to own, operate, fuel and insure) transportation one thinks of small-displacement motorcycles, scooters and motor-assisted bicycles.

      While I don't think of a Ducati-labeled bicycle would really be a big seller I can see a word filled with premium economy transportation vehicles powered by efficient gas motors and eventually plug-in battery powered performance motorcycles.

      I used to love to go to Battley's and see their awesome vintage Italian bikes on the top concours of their store. I am glad to see that they are still growing!

      I'd make the RS 4 and 6 avants and the RS 3 5 and 7 sedan(coupe)
      But then I don't run audi because If I did there would already be etron and tdi variants for nearly everything and I'd have greenlit a limited run of CQ from the quattro concept
