    RS5 is not a rare car or exotic, so no reason to not drive it year round. If it was a lambo or something i totally understand the seasonal driving, but an awd audi...not special IMO.

    Mike, get the RS5...do it son!! do it!

    Wouldn't you hate getting rear ended in your new $70k car because of someone not paying attention and then not being able to stop in time because of slippery roads?

    pretty much what happened to me last month, except I got cut off and couldn't stop because of the slippery roads.

    cars are meant to driven

    and this is why we have insurance

    i drive my 1 of 2000 all year round

    any idea on ballpark price of the quattro?
    if its anywhere close to the R8 then cancel, unless find it used for cheap and good condition

    not sure. I think gasmask was looking into it but then discovered it was too expensive.

    it will be over 100k, and expect dealers to mark it up over that due to demand

    is Audi notorious for marking things up? I just assume they wont come off MSRP like normal. The S5 they kept telling me was in high demand and only 2 were allocated to most dealers but they never marked the price up any (i know not as rare as this car in question) but just a thought.

    My Volvo doesn't have an Aux music input jack.

    I'm lusting after some of the cool devices they sell to add one.

    Choices are:

    $250 for a unit that plays music and video through the stock head unit and Nav screen. iPod only. Displays song info on head unit and can change song with steering wheel.

    $140 for a unit that has a USB input and a Aux input. USB input allows song info and steering wheel control. Aux input is just sound.

    $100 for the same brand unit that does bluetooth and Aux input. With bluetooth you can use the steering wheel to handle the calls and songs. nothing displays on the head unit.

    All of those units plug into the back of the Nav unit with an 8 pin connector.

    Ebay has a $15 dollar 8 pin to RCA connector that I bought for giggles will try that tonight as a nice stop gap. Of course it doesnt do any steering wheel buttons, and shows nothing on the screen, but I hope the audio quality is decent and the long cable from console to trunk doesnt pick up any interference noise.

    Audi doesn't mark up, no manufacturers do. I think that is up to the individual dealers. I don't know who does it around here and who doesn't.
