RS 6 - okay here goes.

Don't buy one with DRC, it just breaks a lot. Most have coilovers, only buy one with coilovers.
They are an easy 500 BHP with a remap, as long as they don't have any boost leaks and or need a new DV,N75 valves or leaky intercoolers.
They come with blinds too although this was optional, double glazing and solar are very rare on them but I have a friend with one for sale. With all them options and natural leather. I can't remember how much he wants but his mileage is on the high side 130kish. But is a healthy one running Blistein coil overs and made 515 BHP at a recent MRC dyno day. Black saloon, milltek MRC custom map etc...

DRC is on all RS 6 models. I've just sent Simon a message asking him now. Not sure about your cars value. It's got a great spec on it, better then nearly any S8. £3-3.5k? Put it on autotrader +++

well im in no rush to sell up because i do like the car just lacks some power thats all, so i think i will take some pictures when i get a chance and just see what happens, i have looked at many S8's and i could not find one that matched my spec although its an A rather than S its still a fun packed 8 with as you say a better spec than most S8 - of course the extra power, i get 25mpg every day it has never droped below that, and i get 29.5-32mpg on the motorway must be the long gears in the A8 that make it more motorway friendly ? yes if you can get a price for me and pm me with it and maybe some pics then i will be very intrested

many thanks

Will do, it's a really sorted car. The natural leather is so much nicer then standard. The milltek sounds amazing and the Bilstein PSS9s are the best (also most expensive) coilovers for the RS 6, about £2k supplied and fitted.

An S8 will do max 24 mpg because of it's stupid gearing. An RS 6 is more economical.
