The RS6 is a definite sleeper and one of my favorites of all time, but at this point too many gremlins (I have a C5 A6 4.2) and finding one in good shape is tough. The RS4 is really impossible to get major power gains out of it, hence why you don't see it, as a simple MTM supercharger that brings it over 500hp is like $15K. Whoa. Plus carbon build up in the FSI engine...

I wish Audi would sack up and put the TT 4.0L from the S6 into the RS5, now that is a car that I would be all over...
The RS4 is a great car, but power adders are limited, costly and unreliable. I just sold my 2008 RS4 and bought a new 2013 GT-R. I've had the GT-R for less than two weeks, but it will meet my needs for the next three years. It is a great car and almost too easy to drive fast. This car is very rare here in Iowa (only one in the Quad Cities), so the ownership experience has been a bit overwhelming. It is also a very different vehicle from the Jeep, but that is the balance I was hoping to find.

I can second this. Renntech has an amazing product but be prepared to spend a few dimes ( not pennies )

GF just got a full Intake/exhaust system on her ML series AMG with tune and I almost barfed when I saw the invoice.... lets just say I could have had a Stage6 Turbo kit for cheaper
her brother let me drive his C Series AMG and I can vouche thats its the best of all worlds. stylish, luxuirous and sporty ! ... Just my opinion though

Yeah only with an automatic transmission unfortunately. Starting in the 2010 models, Porsche has only been offering their PDK package in the United States which is automatic and manual hybrid. There are no true manual transmissions being built in Porsches anymore (in the U.S.). Ferrari has been doing this for some time also, I am not sure how long though.

I thought they just came out with a 7 speed manual recently and you could still get a manual in the 911's, not all but some
