Also, there is something to Reil's argument about the character of the V8, I think. It's a wonderful engine that makes incredible noises, and I'm glad to see it in the RS5, personally.
Saw my first one in the showroom a few weeks ago, black with ti package. Today I saw the first one in the wild, gray with ti package, at the local Whole Paycheck lot. I generally like it a lot, but think it's a tad bit overpriced.
I personally like the aluminum pack look on the red car as shown in the R and T pictures. If its options are anything like the TT-RS (and I think they are), you can have your choice of silver accent pieces that match the mirrors, or the blacked out look of the Ti package. I think it's all relative to the body color which looks best. I ordered my Sepang Blue car with the aluminum accents and think it looks great. The Ti might look better on a black or gray car.

I don't know if I could justify one of these knowing that the new S5 with the 3.0T is only a tune away from being faster and cheaper at the same time. Sort of like the whole 335is/M3 proposition I suppose.
Either way, it'd be a hard pill to swallow over a C63 AMG.
