I'm looking to replace my S5 with the RS5 and had a couple of questions-

Do all RS5's have the sports differential? Drive select?

Also, any idea if my S5's track wheels will fit (18x9.5 ET 33 with 265-35-18 PSS tires)?

Thanks in advance.

My opinion only, yes I think all RS5s have sport differential and I'm relatively certain all the Audi sedans have the same bolt pattern?

They do have ADS and the differential. As for the 18's I don't think so not because there not hub centric or the bolt pattern but due to issues with brake clearance. You could be lucky tho.

Right, brake clearance might be the issue with 18x9.5 ET 33 wheels.

FWIW, I run 18's for my track setup. Here is what I use: www.tirerack.com/wheels/WheelCloseUpServlet?target=runWheelSearch&initialPartNumber=MT188535512MG&wheelMake=TRMotorsport&wheelModel=MT1&wheelFinish=Matte+Grey&showRear=no&autoMake=Audi&autoModel=RS+5&autoYear=2013&autoModClar=Standard+Brakes&filterFinish=All&filterSize=18&filterBrand=All&filterSpecial=false&filterNew=All&filterWeight=All&sort=Brand
i believe they were 18x8.5 (wish I would've had 9) x 23 (I think, or 33? can check when I get out today).
So you might get lucky with that.
