    Cool - 2018 Audi RS5: "Project Mystique" By TEKNIKA -

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Hello Audizine. I am new to the Audi brand and fairly new to the world of German vehicle ownership overall. However, I have had an extensive history of Japanese vehicle ownership starting with Hondas, Acuras, Mazdas and Infinitis. My wife and I currently own a 2017 Infiniti Q60S Red Sport 400, a 2018 BMW M4 Competition Package and we are the new owners of a 2018 Audi RS5 in Navarra Blue purchased from Audi North Orlando in September 2018. I have many plans with this new B9 platform and would love to share my build, entitled "Project Mystique" with other fellow Audi enthusiasts. So, please stay tuned as I hope to post frequently with progress updates and daily Instagram posts. Thank you.

    Thank you! It was completely unintentional. In fact, we did not realize it until the next day.

    Thank you. Firstly, the M4 and B9 RS5 are beasts in their own rights and merits. It is all a matter of how the experience is delivered based on their unique design language and heritage. Obviously, the most prominent difference is the drivetrain. With that in mind, while both share similar HP/TQ output, the way each vehicle utilizes and delivers that power is quite different. In my opinion, the F82 M4's power is best served from the mid-range (60+ mph) to the top end, whereas the B9 RS5 excels from a stop. Perhaps, one of the most lasting impressions of owning a B9 RS5 is how truly incredible it is with launch control. The acceleration is mind-blowingly quick. While the M4 is no slouch, if I was challenged at a stoplight, I would choose my B9 RS5 all day.

    I can offer much more insight with regard to other aspects of each vehicle if you wish, but to save from writing an incredibly long post essentially reviewing each vehicle, I decided to focus on the most obvious difference.

    October 11, 2018 | T-minus 5 weeks until wheel reveal! | When only custom tailored fitment will suffice. Project: Mystique now spec’ed and measured by the experts at BC Forged.

    Absolutely, but in time. I am withholding the exact details and measurements until the wheels arrive, are installed and officially revealed by myself and BC Forged on their image gallery. This is to guarantee the fitment and appearance I am trying to achieve, as well as to prevent incorrect measurements prior to a proper installation and test drive. I will however disclose that I had BC Forged custom build the wheels for maximum concavity specific to exact measurements of the B9 RS5's clearances while retaining an aggressive "flush with fender" appearance. I will update as more details are available, so please stay tuned.

    Great eyes! Yes, it is Navarra Blue. Some of the images have been edited to compensate for lighting and dramatically increase the blue's tonal qualities. My avatar, delivery image and video are a better true-to-life representation of Navarro Blue.

    Awesome car! But, if you decided to go with the black rings, pls do the car a favor and go all black: black RS5 badges front back and black RS5 side grills. You can order those from TAG Motorsports :D

    Thank you for the suggestion. It is already in the long list of future upgrades.
