Audi RS6 v10

Looking at buying a 2008-2010 Audi RS6

I don't have a particular car in scope yet but anybody give me any pointers on particular weak spots I should look out for

Many thanks and Season Greetings

Graham

Petrol station locations, mobile speed camera locations...

Tracking and proper servicing a must, look out for the upgraded breaks as they are very pricing when they need changing of pads and disc.

Cracking engin but a big car, RS4B4 4.2 n/a would be my shout as its more nimble and sounds amazing with a good exhaust, looks agrssive with out being over the top also.

C6 RS6 appears to be generally OK. Heavy fast car will need lots of attention to bushes/arms/pads/discs. Some issue with the dry sump issue causing the engine to fail if I remember correctly.

This is a friend of mine's old car


and MRC can get you over the 800BHP mark if you so desire

And you can change into 6th gear at an indicated 200MPH

Yeah, but I used to change into 2nd at 86 mph on my Busa. Oh, 100 mph in 5 secs, 60 in under 3; and 72 mpg at constant 45. And didn't get stuck in traffic.

Then you could turbo it

The thought of repair bills on any Audi would scare me witless since I asked for a price for oil and water turbo feed pipes when turboing toy car.

Over 600! Made them myself for about 25 in the end.

My mate works in an Audi dealer and they had one in for a O2 sensor. 2500 later as the car was out of warranty.

Just be sure you are fully aware of all running costs. The O2 sensor is a complete drive train out job, physically impossible without removing everything.

Nice cars though......Good luck

It goes without saying that any repair bills will be biblical in nature...


As for the comparison with a Busa, not really apples and apples now is it. I've sat in the back seat of one of these doing 180MPH down the Autobahn with 3 other people in the car and a boot full of luggage....and that was mile after mile.

They have fully aluminium S Curve suspension, which is delicate, and because of this Audi make the wheels very soft so they buckle before the suspension does. the wheels have a massive offset so tend to flat spot the inner rims, check carefully.





If you can keep you head, whilst all others around you are losing theirs, you are not fully aware of the situation

I'm not aware of any RS6 C6 having wheel issues (I know at least 8 separate people who have owned them). Original B5 RS4 yes but not C6 RS6

Rs4b4 had the wheel issue as they are covered by audi warranty as long as the car is standard and has full audi servicing they will replace any buckled wheels

We looked at one earlier this year, but the repair costs put us off in the end.

We settled on a 335i in the end, which is slightly better on repair costs and reportedly more reliable.

Being honest even the 335 with 340bhp is too much for uk roads.

Not really in the same ballpark. V10 5 litre twin turbo RS v 4.2 V8 in the S4.
