I was given a ride today in one. 450 hp stock and I couldn't stop smiling. The funny part is I wasn't the one driving. Amazing automobile! It made me wonder what a RS6 would be like.

I looked into an S5 for a while, but I really like the convenience of a 4 door. The long front doors of a 2 door were always a pain to get into an out of in a parking lot or garage. The RS6 would be sweet, but I would be pretty happy with an A6 or S6 wagon anyway. A new A6 based Allroad would be perfect.

I completely agree about the 2 door vs. the 4 door versions. Besides functionality, I don't think the 2 door model has as smooth side lines as the 4 door version. I couldn't own a RS6. I would become OPEC's biggest contributor. A coworker has a 3.0 TDI A6 allroad. 320 hp and enough torque to pull a house. The new allroad appears to be a well designed car. I can't wait to see one in person.

If the S5 Sportback existed 3 years ago I very possibly could own that now instead of the Golf R.
