Bros and sis, I just had to bite the dust. I saw it and couldn't sleep that same night and I had to give myself a dream Christmas gift. I traded the F for an 010 Audi RS6. I just couldn't resist the twin turbo V10 at 580hp in stock form.

I will still drop by the site but I'd be lyin if I didn't say I love this new baby. :)

Thanks for all the help. The F gave me wide grins every time I drove it these last two years.

Thanks for understanding. :p

Vbox 90-220kph times is becoming popular here. I tried it with the beast last night, first run on sport auto I got 11.1 secs. Second run with manual shift and ESP off I got 10.95. After me was a Panamera Turbo which clocked 11.3.

I already ordered the Millies with hi flow cats. I will also do a conservative remap. I still want it to remain to behave like a DD.

Nice choice, it is a great car.
One of my mates has one with the Millteck prototype exhaust and a remap that pushes 760hp, it pulls like a train :eek: . He is having the turbos changed and the exhaust adjusted at the moment to go over 800hp :D

HOLY DAMN! nice ride. keep us posted on the reliability... we had an Audi for my lady then got her a IS250 awd before she moved to Minneapolis.

Love the car...too bad we can't get it over here. I would love to smoke a fanboy in a wagon.

Kuya Miguel,

Congrats on the car. I remember seeing you the same night you got the RS6. You pulled up in front of 20 guys who didn't have a clue that you were swapping the F (myself included!). Very nice RS6! A few friends are already looking at the F you left behind. With not too many of them around, an F on the market is a hot item.

10.95 is seriously fast! My F only did 14.4s on the same piece of road and under similar conditions.

When spy shots of the F first came out i think in 06 it mentioned a 5 liter being shoehorned into the IS body, I said to myself I have to get one of those when it comes out. I did and it was a dream come true. At about summer this year I would read about the RS6 and when I learned that this was the last of the turbo V10s since Audi was downsizing to an 8cyl, I said I had to do it. It was really difficult to part with the F but there was just no way I could afford to keep the two. The "painful" choice had to be made.
