Wow! Didn't know that was possible, how did you homologate it for the US? I'd be interested in importing a B7 RS4 Avant in the future!

Sprint blue, ahh. Love that color as much as Imola. So nice. TI package is one thing I wish my RS4 had.

The engine sounded marvelous. The RS4 definitely had a tendency to understeer, but my car wasn't exactly stock. Got stiffer rear sway bars and had the car corner balanced on the KWs. Handled outstandingly after that and nearly eradicated any understeer. But thanks!
