How The RS5 Should have been

Well l’m not a massive fan of new RS5 in standard guise but this has me very interested, very very nice wheels and stance perfect, what do you think?

Funny you say that just how the LC500 I saw with 21” wheels brakes looked tiny, Merck’s are huge

Suppose if they do the job it doesn't matter. That's plenty quick but given the bhp I thought it may have been a tiny bit quicker

Always liked the A/S 5's but MD's wheel comment is spot on, I think it would probably look better with 20's. Even then not a fan of elastic band profile tyres on our crap roads. Great looking wheels though.

After having a tank slipper in AMG changing from 3rd to 4th couple of weeks ago , the AWD is looking more appealing, did I just say that?, but withe the new systems in M5 and E63s proving it can be done all round year performance car that can be enjoyed in wet Scottish winter
