    Daytona Gray RS5

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Just picked up my fully loaded 2018 RS5 yesterday. Love the color combo of the daytona with the bi-color wheels. Mods TBD, but already ordered the RS carbon fiber mirror caps, spoiler and side skirt. I think it's going to look great against the daytona.

    Congrats! Good choice on the wheels. They look great in combination with a dark color. They are more like the titanium wheels on the old RS5. I drove a Daytona RS5 with the standard wheels and the combo just didn't work for me optically. Those wheels look awkward.

    Great looking car — Congratulations!

    Did you order this or was it on the dealer’s lot just waiting to be “grabbed.”

    As superswiss said, the wheels make that car 100% better. Personally I’m not a fan of the asymmetrical wheels that are standard on the RS.

    Thanks. Yeah, I ordered back in March. As some other people mentioned mine came much sooner than expected.

    This is a gorgeous car, congratulations, one thing I have noticed for some reason pictures don’t do the RS justice, but its truly stunning when you see it up close and personal!!!

    Thanks.

    Not sure yet, giving it some time to grow on me. It definitely feels like a completely different car as compared to the B8.

    Daytona Gray RS5

    Nice Car
    Looked at the RS5 however for I think they are 10k too heavy
    Was considering trading in the B9
    however a DTUK add on would give me the same HP as RS5 for less than
    1k

    Congrats... I like those wheels, but I wish you didn't have to get the Black Optics in order to get them. The black Optics looks good with some colors, not so much with others.

    Yeah, patience can be in short supply when waiting at times. But, congrats, wessside. You've got one great looking ride. Daytona with black optics really pop. And your wheels greatly complement. Let us know how those ceramics are going.

    Some quick pics of the carbon fiber accents

    They don't pop quite as much as I would like them to... the cf pattern gets a bit lost against the daytona gray. Against colors like Ibis, Misano or even Nardo it would probably look more pronounced. Overall still happy with the changes

    Car looks great! Daytona is such an amazing shade of gray.

    Is that seat massage button? if yes, how do you like it? is it something that you actually use, or its just a gimmick?

    Thanks guys

    Yup, that's the seat massage button - both the driver and passenger seats have it. It's not something I use very often but I could see how others may really like it. There are different massage patterns and speeds which is kind of cool. Whenever someone is in the passenger seat for the first time it's one of the first things I tell them about though.
