    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 ó Congratulations!

    Did you order this or was it on the dealerís lot just waiting to be ďgrabbed.Ē

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

    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.
