Everything is available in India Considering those are 20" and the ones you have are 19" I think you are slightly better off with the current ones.

The 19s themselves are bone rattling I can imagine what the 20s will do.

good to know it roars, i did some reasearch, and i am confident that this is kinda the VFM " sports coupe" you can buy for this much money and the power you get for it. so thats just brilliant.

i am just a bit sad about no being able to get those alloys, but yeah the stock ones are good too. after all they are exclusive alloys to RS5.

Do put a video up of that V8 growling and one of the exhaust too.

I have read cases of premature clutch failure with frequent usage of Launch Control on Ferrari. How does the RS5 fare? Any cautions on the owner' manual?

And, when are you taking it to Buddh?

I have done launch control about 6 times. Don't intend to any more. No cautions in the manual except that it says that it causes more wear and tear.
Will take it to Buddh circuit soon. Trying to figure out a plan with some of my friends.

Hmmm,
So it's raining RS5 in NCR
The car looks stunning, it was parked at the petrol bunk just before left turn at red light towards Qutab Minar. It was white same as yours and still didn't have a number plate.

If no front number plate then it probably was mine. Lol. That's probably the best way to identify mine from other RS5s. Was probably stationary but not parked. Anyways.....

The police dont trouble trouble you seeing no reg plate up front ? Or are you so quick always that you vanish before they could blink ?
In Mumbai its all upon mood. If they are in the mood to trouble, they will stop you and ask you irrelevant stupid questions for no fault of yours.
Only here have i seen them let off 50 year old premier padmini taxis and inspecting the boots of Audis,Beemers etc.

Strange that you ask that now as got my first challah yesterday for the missing plate. Managed it through sweet asking and can't say anything else without incriminating myself on a public forum - so we shall stop at sweet talking.
Jat cops of Delhi are so irritating.

An Sticker will do the job handsomely.
Now that the fines have gone up the police has become even powerful.
