It's not factual as proven by the video I posted.

Me thinks you have never driven it. And don't tell the G80 AWD folks their car is a big boat - they won't like you

Ah, I think you might be one of the three people in the world that finds the RS5 looks boring. In fact, side by side with a F80 M3, I doubt many people would say the RS5 was less boring - let's be honest, only true BMW fan boys would say the RS5 has 0 road presence.

Wait, are we in the modded thread here?

ah, so you have not driven the RS5. Glad we confirmed that. I will say, putting the car into sport mode (dynamic mode) changed the behavior drastically on my test drive. Which included a small test tack where I was able to go crazy and not be on the road.

That said, I think they sold every RS5 they made - worse, they didn't make a 2020 so into late 2020 they were still selling the 2019s and they sold well and quick. I think plenty of people want it. That said, I'm not sure where you are getting your sales figures from - as I don't think either mfg posts them. Either way, I would say that most of the RS5s I looked at were considerably more money than the M3.

Personally don't know anyone with an RS5 and haven't seen one on the road in over 3 week..i dont know what the sales are nor do i care. The RS5 is more expensive and exclusive than the M4.

Also to each their own but the rs5 and S5 look nearly identical.

And it is factual, its physics, roll them from any speed, let power to weight do it's thing. The only time the RS5 isnt getting its asshole gaped is from a dig or under horrible tires/road by M4.

Anything over 40 MPH its getting car lengths put on it; also yes i also hate the G8X.

I actually prefer the E92 and E46 over F8X so not fan boying over F8X

Don't see the new RS5 that often. Happened to see one a couple days ago. It was in Turbo Blue(had to lookup the color), it looked amazing. Great road presence. The color reminded me of BMW's Santorini Blue. Honestly Audi is producing some of the best looking German cars right now. BMW design has gone in the sh*tter. Merc is just...meh(besides the AMG-GT).

I saw an RS5 in a parking garage on Friday...it looked so good that I had to do another lap around the garage to get a second look. Its gorgeous.
