My son got an RS5 last year in the same color - beautiful car, you will enjoy it a hell of a lot. Best part of it was that he bought it while staying with us during the pandemic (he can work remotely), and left the car here for a few months after going back to Seattle. Needless to say it got a daily workout with his dad!

Congrats on your new S5 Sportback. Love the color combo and your wheels. Very nice!

I finally took delivery of my Nardo Grey 2022 RS6 Avant after waiting over 13 months from the time I placed the order. Enjoy your new ride!
