so cosmetically what needs to be changed to get this to full C5 RS6 appearance? I assume thats one potential future you've thought about...

It is definitely something I have considered. To my understanding the fenders on all of the V8 C5's are the same, weither it be A6, S6 or RS6.. so that's the biggest issue solved. Besides that there are:
-RS6 Front Bumper
-RS6 Rear Bumper
-RS6 Spoiler
-RS6 Side Skirts
-RS6 Flat Door Blades
-Titanium Trim if going for the RS6+ look
-RS6 Front Upper Grill
-RS6 Front Lower Grill

I currently have the RS6 Grills, but I need to do a bit of work to install them. I believe the upper requires a different hood latch (I installed it without replacing the hood latch and I ended up spending 30 minutes removing the grill with the hood closed because it snagged).

After that, I believe I'm going to go with the RS6 Skirts and flat door blades. The 4.2 door blades don't mesh incredibly well with the widebody fenders, I prefer the flat blades and skirts. Scotty@Advanced has proposed a potential groupbuy, but it's been difficult getting support becuase of the cost ($1200+ shipped).

I'm not sure if I'll get the bumpers after that, the rounded bubble body is kind of growing on me to be completely honest.
