Rather have an M550i if I want luxury. cheaper lease. and its a turbo V8. They both weigh about the same ~4000 pounds.

Would rather take the RS3 over both of those though. that 5 cylinder is a beast. low 10's with just a tune and exhaust. And its gets a proper DCT rather than the ZF auto in the other cars.

They had 0% (and might still) and yes, a dealer was offering his $95K one for $77K - but no heated steering wheel Sold fast.

The M550 and RS-5 are two very different cars.

I helped a friend drive his M550 home from out of state and wow... it was a very boring car. Incredible luxury and straight line speed, but yawn (for me anyway). The RS-5 has a lot more excitement going for it (and a lot less luxury).

that didn't extend to RS models back when I was having a look. If they changed that policy would explain why they suddenly moved so quick.

Yea, I mean these are 2019s and the 2021s are coming out soon with a refresh. So they should be discounted A LOT. The local dealer however, who has a car with just about a perfect spec for me is only taking off $7K. Not happening. He said he sold it for that price a week ago, but still on his site.

Damn those are some nice discounts on RS5 SBs....

For what it's worth, I almost bought a 2018 S6 brand new (twin turbo v8 + DCT + AWD + luxury albeit with aged tech).

They had a seat airbag issue that required them to stay unsold for 6+ months sitting on lots. The one I came close to buying had an MSRP of $78k and was discounted to $55k.

I should've done it honestly. I would've been able to drive it for a year and trade it in for $60k.

I thought about RS5 Sportback, Merc C63S, and BMW M4. In the end the LSB color won me over, but I was leaning that way anyway. The other 2 are much more expensive and heavier. I do like the hatchback the RS5 has and I think it looks amazing. All 3 are great cars, mine is for nice weekends, it’s not my DD, if it was I probably would’ve went RS5 or CPO Panamera GTS.
