Congratulations on your new car, A real car for mad petrolheads.

You cannot compare a petrol car with a diesel one, and no definitely not this one. Also you already spent more than 30k on petrol in just 20 days. thats just awesome, in your face attitude to all those crazy pseudo environmentalist.

It gains stupendous speed so much so that honestly 150 kmph feels like a 100. This car really does cover ground. Who cares about the 4 kmpl urban mileage!!??!!
.
Congratulations Zkalra

Your super Luxury looks Gorgeous in white.

Tap on accelerator and it Zooms with roar, When one buys such a super luxury car the FE and Rising fuel cost are left in dirt.
The sheer pleasure one gets of driving it must be incomparable.

Enjoy your ride to the fullest

Congrats and enjoy the attention. Just a shade under 100 kms a day, hope your dental fillings are in place and I can see that petrol attendant smiling when ever you come in to tank up at 4 kmpl it must be something like once in 4 days or even less. (Use your credit card and use it's turbo points to redeem free fuel: OMG! that thought is for 'penny pincher's' like me.) I agree you will be using the engine note as ICE and be using the A/C a lot less and B&O system to impress others only.

Hello,congratulations on owning a "supercar" in India,and the one of the most practical ones at that!

I have seen the RS5 in person and that car turns heads for sure,something which cant be fully explained in pics.Even in white the RS5 will keep you gaping for sometime,those beautiful aluminium polished rear view mirrors,the LEDS,the low stance and massive wheels!

So what is the breaking in time period for this car?I heard that most of these high capacity engines are already broken in at the factory itself?

Servicing takes place at normal Audi service centres?I dont mean to sound rude,but can you tell us as to on an average how expensive is a service?Change of fluids and all every 5,000km?(trying to understand how expensive it is to maintain a supercar.)

How many modes does it have for handling setup?Comfort,sport and dynamic?

Oh lastly with the new facelifted RS5 already revealed,was the reason you had got your car at a discount?

Congratulations Mr Kalra for the new baby, hope u are having a great experience with it. I would like to thank you for an honest review and also have a question for u.

How do u find the driving dynamics of audi after the quattro, which would u rate comparable to or better than BMW 6 series for sheer driving pleasure.

Thanks and Happy Driving

Drive safe!
The Transmission is a DCT dual clutch awesome thingamajig!! In Comfort mode gear changes are completely imperceptible as the transmission has two clutches each holding onto a separate gear. When you change one clutch shuts off anf the other one engages so there is virtually no power delivery loss and the entire change-up is near instantaneous!!

In comfort when you blip a gear up or down - it drops a drop of petrol in the hot exhaust creating a bit of a propulsion effect and an amazing roar. Its amazing and brings real drama to even basic driving!!!!

This is one of the most easy to live with Super-Coupes available in India!!

The grill is jaw dropping gorgeous !! Beautiful machine this one is.

I saw one about 10 days back zoom on the newly paved Gurgaon Faridabad Road-I remember my wife asking me what that is Wondering if it was you ? Do you frequent that road ?

Congratulations again.

Why does your car have a pedestrian Audi Symphony system and the low reso version of MMI ??
Yes i know the dam music system hardly matters with that orgasmic NA v8 orchestra happening in the engine bay but still, i thought a Bang & Olufsen system and a full fledged MMI is a given in such a fantastic car.

It does have a B&O. Audi symphony is just the head unit or the lower end MMI or whatever. I don't think its a necessity to have the full MMI for a B&O system.

Amazing car!
HRE wheels on this car would be awesome.
According to my calculations with just 1800 kms your have spent close to Rs. 36,000 in fuel!
But i am sure its worth it.

I think not. Unless Audi have changed something ,which is unlikely since this is a pre-facelift model ,i can guarantee that models with 'Audi Symphony' do not have the B n O or Bose systems.
Incidentally i used to think exactly what you are saying here but i stood corrected. Symphony , Bose & B n O are all different systems.

A friends 3.2 has the B&O with the basic mmi and symphony written there. That I am 100% sure of. Also in this pic you can see the silver surrounds for the speakers which only the B&O has and also the speakers on the dash which again only the B&O has.

FYI, only the B&O system has tweeters in the RVM quadrants, which you can clearly see in the pictures above.
