      I'm not really an Audi fan, but I think that car is ****ing beautiful. I'd rock that for certain.

      On a given day, a given circumstance, you think you have a limit. And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit, and you think, 'Okay, this is the limit.' As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further.

      I know some people don't care for the gaping mouth of the new Audi's, but damn it works on their meaner looking S and RS models soooo well.

      Am I the only one that cannot get past that grill? I want to like this car but even in black that grill is just too much. It needs something to break it up, I think a license plate would actually improve it.

      The white one is just about perfect.

      They sound pretty good with an exhaust too...

      Saw a new S5 out on the street the other day. Man oh maaaan those DRLs look good.

      i owned one already. (in germany). had traded it back in because my wife wanted something cuter, as she put it, to drive to aldi five minutes down the street. so she picked out an rs3. that was fun but thats no longer with us. i put photos up on the audi section months ago.

      I have never said this before, and I likely will never say it again, but that car needs a front plate in the worst way. That grill is ****ing awful.

      On the white one, the black grill is OK. I am more concerned with the wheels (18" would be just fine, and I have not seen anything with fewer than 9-11 spokes I actually like).

      Of course, any of those things is peanuts with a car like this.

      Look at the rims on this one. I dont get it.

      They look like they came off a base model a4, not an audi rs5.

      ^^ Those are not the same rims, which are the new 20" RS4 rims... The wheels thisisdog is referring to are the factory 19s

      Here's an RS5 safety car with the 20" RS4 wheels:

      Somebody please post a better picture of the wheels in question. I still think they look very poor for a vehicle of that stature.

      The wheels on the white RS5, look a lot like the wheels that come on the new A4's.

      Same wheel, different diameter, width and offset. I hate it how Audi does what aftermarket parts firms do - make smaller versions of wheels seen on the hottest cars. IMO RS wheel designs should be reserved for RS cars only.

      I whole heartedly agree, I loved it when Audi had Avus wheels only found on S cars. Audi has enjoyed diluting S / RS cars.

      100000% improvement over the last one, but the proportions are still jacked up. Reminds me of the GTO/Monaro still.
