Not going to lie, I don't like most Audi vehicles. But this is pretty cool. Not sure i'd take it over a 750li but I'd entertain the idea if I could afford it.

Very cool but all I can think of is all the crap that will break and cost $Texas to fix.

You have to put things into perspective. The people that buy these cars have a lot of money and $30k depreciation to them is like a regular joe buying a $35k car and having it depreciate over $5k rolling it off the lot.

I am counting on that depreciation when I go looking for an RS4 one day.

Cool review - sounds great! I would definitely X-shop it - with the upcoming E63 S AWD... Too bad we don't get the smaller RS6 with this motor.

The RS6 actually has another 40 hp. Should be quick, considering what this car does with less power.

Unless you're looking to buy an incredibly aged B7 RS 4 in 5 or 6 years, I wouldn't hold my breath for a new RS 4 in the States anytime soon.

Most business people I know who own/drive these class of cars lease them anyway, so the depreciation never factors in for them.

Really? So, you think Audi or the dealership will take the big hit?

It does in that that's what determines the lease payment. If their practice foots the bill then I agree that it's a non-issue.
