A little background: this is my wife's new daily.

As soon as she said she wanted an Audi, I said "RS6, it's a wagon." I showed her pix of a silver one and she was into it. She was against white until seeing it in person. With the black optic trim and some carbon bits, it really looks good. It's a 2023 with under 14k on the odo. Was imported from Canada, so was not eligible for CPO and the additional 1 year / 20k mile warranty. Balance of manufacturers warranty goes to October 2026 or 50k miles.

It's got 285/30s on 22" rims and this is Detroit, so we bought the 3-year extended coverage for wheels and tires.

It's also got some seriously huge carbon brake rotors and the calipers are massive.

I don't think I can downsize to 21" rims for winter tires, and I'm definitely going to let the dealer handle the seasonal swaps and the off-season storage.

Time will tell how much I can tolerate the additional expense of owning and operating this magnificent beast. EPA combined is under 20 mpg, and it drinks 93 octane. Replacement brake rotors are $7k *each*; fortunately, they should last the life of the car so I may never realize that expense.

Wife giggles every time she lays eyes on it. But it's not a regular giggle, it's more devious. This car is so over the top, it's really kinda silly. The sill plates are illuminated, FFS.

and now I'm under pressure to fix MonZora and open up the garage for the Rowdy Audi.

One of these serves as a local autocross missile here in Central Florida. Same color, too. I've had a ride, it's mind blowingly fast.

I'm not saying I am jealous because I also purchased an RS6 last week... for my sons hot wheels collection.  He said, "daddy, you should get a real one."

Where's that emoji with the bulging eyeballs when you need it.  Seriously cool car, though.

#RowdyAudi, love it.  Congratulations, that thing looks like a beast.  Good call on the tire and wheel insurance, we've already used it on the one of the tires on my brides daily (19" wheels).  There was a pinhole in one of the sidewalls, could have been a manufacturing defect.  The tires are close to $350 a pop so the insurance basically paid for itself.
