      LT1M21Vette: I'm with you...I'd seriously find a way to buy one if they brought the S4 Avant here.

      And I said I was finally going to keep a car for a few years.

      They can bring the RS4 Avant though. Cool car but I could never justify spending that much on a car.
      If they bring an RS/S avant I'll throw the keys to my SQ5 back at them and get one ASAP. I would love a go fast wagon.

      I would swing an S4 avant, but not an RS4 ($$$). But we haven't seen an S4 avant here for years now, I wouldn't hold my breath.

      Given the new S4 and RS6/7 both use the ZF, I'm thinking it will be the ZF.

      I forget if it was posted here or on Audizine, but I believe by 2019 or 2020, Audi is suppose to be bringing between 7-9 RS models to North America (including the US).

      The US definitely won't get an Avant, but an RS4 sedan 2019+ would be a possibility, but for the US market they may just skip the RS4 and bring the RS5/RS6 since they are bringing over an RS3. R8 is suppose to be going V6 twin-turbo also.

      Back on topic, the Avants never did anything for me, but then again i'm not a wagon guy so what would I know.

      Seems like it, right? Not that anything is wrong with that. The experiences I've had with the ZF 8AT have made me a believer. It's just interesting that Audi is switching to that on all of the longitudinal front engine models, with DSG on the transverse models, and DSG on the longitudinal mid-engine platform as well.

      RS3 and RS4 sedans seem like a no brainer decision for AoA. The only question that remains for us is will we see RS5 coupe AND RS5 Sportback. Since we will not get RS4 Avant, I'm prepare to settle for RS5 sportback.

      RS6 was here but it sold poorly so now we only have RS7. I don't think that will change.

      Given that GLC63 and X4M are both likely to happen, I see RSQ5 being a done deal too (GLC43 and X4 M40i compete with SQ5). RSQ3 is questionable for US market. Don't forget TTRS. So that's your 7 or 8 RS models:

      1. RS3 sedan
      2. RS4 sedan
      3. RS5 coupe
      4. RS5 sportback
      5. RS7 sportback
      6. TT RS coupe
      7. RS Q5
      8. RS Q3 (maybe)

      Don't forget that there's the RS5 convertible, too. That's more likely than the RS Q3.

      Damn more settling in my future if I say with audi. I'd really like an RS6 Avant. Looks like the next car will be a E63S.

      If it's not an Avant, it's not a true Audi performance car.

      Harumph.

      If they brought the RS4 Avant to the States, I would buy one as soon as my rich uncle died.

      Oh, wait--I don't have a rich uncle. So much for that plan.

      Bringing over those RS models would only help Audi. I do think a decent number of people want a high-performance option to compete with the likes of AMG and M. They really don't have much right now in the US that competes with most of the AMG/M cars, especially the M3/M4.

      Personally, I'm really hoping they bring the RS3 and/or RS4 over in sedan form. I'd jump over either but I would hold out on the RS3 if the RS4 was confirmed. Unfortunately I doubt a manual option would be available in either, forcing me to hold onto the S4 to keep a manual

      We for sure are getting the sedan RS3, and if theres a sedan RS4 I bet we'll be getting that as well.

      Excited to see how this plays out. I've planned for quite a while to purchase an S4 when I'm done with my GLI, it just feels like a logical next-step car. Similar in size, a sedan, but with more power and AWD. The possibility of an RS, though, definitely interests me.

      That looks bang on what an RS4 should look like. Well done Audi.

      Now, please make sure the RS5 Sportback that NA is getting has those same fender flares and not the BS you did with the RS7, and RS3 sedan.

      Thanks.

      I'm not a fan of the Avants but damn is that nice. Now please AoA bring over an RS4 in sedan form so I can have an internal wrestling match between that and the Alfa.
