    I own Pacific German's first (and best) Audi RS5 that Shawn put together. I believe they still have a 2014 RS5 and I know they acquired a 2017 R8 (non-Plus) which they worked their magic on. I saw a few writeups on their car which received an ECU tune and a host of goodies. Well since then they added a VF-800 package (supercharger).

    I actually came across it while researching Syvecs and the Bosch MED17 ECU (strange, I know). And it's for sale. I'm sure they have their eye on a new 2019.

    So I'm thinking...it would make a very nice garage mate to the RS5, no? I'd have to move all of my woodworking equipment, kayaks, tools, lawn care products, useless boxes and things I generally haven't touched in a decade out of the third bay andinto the driveway. Or make my wife park her car outside. There's a good chance she'd probably leave me too, possibly taking the house with her.

    But still...THIS.

    You can sleep in an R8 but you can’t drive to work in a house, just saying.
    I accept a Stage II tuned S5 is quicker than an RS5

    I drove the 2017 V10 Plus model and surprisingly actually didnt like it! Drove it at the track back-to-back with the Huracan and much preferred the Huracan. The Audi had better brakes, better transmission and was way torquier and a better daily driver too but overall the Lambo is the one I wanted to drive again and wouldn't get tired of. Hard to explain but even though they have the same basic engine, they were completely different cars. The Audi felt like a normal car, not overly special, and its throttle response was TOO sharp to where even barely touching the throttle would make it surge and cause your neck to snap while the Lambo was way smoother in its power delivery and sounded amazing at 8500 rpm. Seating position was also much better in the Lambo as it felt like sitting ON the front axle with great visibility. Also definitely didnt feel like it needed a supercharger on top of it lol but that could be the trick to make it insane - after all, I recently watched this vid of a Huracan Performante that was supercharged and the sound of this engine supercharged is absolute insanity:

    Anyway if you wind up getting it, I'll take back everything I just said and cruise down to S/A to come give her a proper test drive :)

    Don't let anyone ever tell you that you aren't a stand-up guy and a man of principle!

    You sir, are a man of logic, the sort of logic I'm in favor of.

    Ape, looks like you caught the bug too. But I am with Asher, I prefer the older model which is a very good thing as it makes it a bit more reachable for me.

    So I have planted the seed with the boss that in 6 years for my 60th I am going to look for one. The bug is so bad that it has me considering parting away with my Z as the hard rule in our household is "only 3 cars"
    Nice low mileage V10, get it tuned, add some carbon and that's about it.

    For now I am also going to go wash and detail my RS and burnoff aome energy... Oh, no. wait! I can't as the poor thing has been at the dealer for the past 3 weeks with the engine out waiting for parts from Germany. Yeah, parts that the freakin' mice nibbled on.

    Namer, I can't believe that happened to you. So they pulled the entire engine? Would be a great time to install those performance headers for the RS5. Oh wait... Man trying to think what you should do, if anything, while the engine is out.

    For some reason I prefer the 2016+ although I do like the new 2019 facelift. I'd go for a Hurican but they're $100K dearer so they better feel more special. But a 2017 with all the goodies and supercharged for less than $160K. Crazy.

    and the RS5 has a deceptively large trunk for your clothes, toiletries, etc. - I think we're on to something here

    I'm having them replace all the hoses, thermostat, etc. Anything that requires the engine to be pulled. extra $1000 in parts.

    That R8 is waaaaay sick.

    I’m just weird about cars and $.

    Like for that cars price, I’d want to build it myself. (Not saying it’s not well done, that’s just part of the fun. )

    But above $200k? I’m buying it “ fast “ from
    the factory.

    I hope I’m making sense. Lol.

    PS. Buy the car.

    I think with an RS5 and an R8, you won't have any trouble attracting the right women. Go for it...
