I was quickly out of work to run over and pick it up and boy can I tell you, going from my old car to this beast was overwhelming, I took it to a state forest to test out some speeds. I managed to get upto 175 before running out of safe straight road.

Exterior Color: Silver
Interior Color: Silver Interior
Delivery Date: 14th October 2004
Options: Navigation, Warm Weather Package, Sound Enhancing Exhaust, Rear Side Airbag Supplement Restraints, Carbon Fiber Interior Trim, Lojack with Early Warning Detection

With the M2M chip in it, I do 0 to 100km/h in 4.5 seconds thanks to the all wheel drive system, which handles perfectly around the tightest of corners. The suspension is a little rough so I have it booked in to get sports suspension put in which will soften it up a fair bit for a smoother ride. All in all though I give it a 9.7 out of 10, I have looked closely at BWM and Jaguar over the past few months and have test driven many of their top models, but found the RS6 to be, by far the best.

With my mum's new car, it takes 12.7 secs to go to 100km/h! Oh wait, there's no need for her to reach 100km/h that quickly going to work. Plus she would much prefer to fly to Darwin then drive on "unlimited" speed limit roads. We're getting the car next Saturday, exterior Silver. Car's a Subaru GX btw.

The taillights are the coolest but you can't really see 'em.

What's so cool about the tailights? Aren't they the same as the '03 Civic?

Not impressed. Thats like the cheapy version of an Audi. Looks like a Rent-A-Car with the Audi sign thrown on there.

Are you crazy? That car is beautiful.

I think you both need to stop that, it's not preety.


Glare, are you gonna supe up your Audi, with like a shot of Nitrous, maby a turbo-charger, anything like that? Just curious.

yeah, they are.
theres only 1 difference in the bodies of the 03 and 04 civics..and its not all that noticable.

Glare
16-10-2004, 10:10 PM
It's actually Audi's top model car and is by no means cheap.

duckula
16-10-2004, 10:22 PM
Still average looking, you would have thought that audi might actually have got someone with eyes to design their top model.

CFC
16-10-2004, 10:54 PM
I thought the A8 was Audi's top model car?

Glare
16-10-2004, 11:43 PM
A8:
Price: from $173,900
Power: 246kW
0-100: 6.4 sec

RS6:
Price: from $219,570
Power: 331kW
0-100: 4.7 sec

Figure out the obvious for yourself.

If I bothered getting a prestigious car I'd get a BMW or a Jaguar :P Nice Civic btw Mandy, like Honda's style but parent's think they're shoddy since our current Honda keeps having problems. Leaking oil currently :)

Honda's are very reliable cars.

I hate the civic though. The reason being... because ever since The Fast and The Furious... everyone and their mothers bought civic's with huge ass spoilers that do nothing for performance.

If im not mistaken, it is turbo, secondly nitrous is illegal and stupid in most parts of Australia. On a side not, was it you who said they had a blue skyline ?, and posted a picture of it a while back ?

CFC
17-10-2004, 10:42 AM
Last time I checked skylines are not imported to the US.

Glare
17-10-2004, 10:53 AM
Yes narg is right, It is currently a twin turbo v8 giving off 450hp, I have since put a m2m chip in that a friend recommended which he said gives me an extra 30 or so hp, whether thats legit or not I don't know.

CFC
17-10-2004, 12:12 PM
I don't think the RS6 is available in America right now.

Hmmm...didn't know nitrous was illegal in the land down under, thanks for the mention, and yes, that was me.

the fool posted an image of a blue skyline a while back claiming as his own, today when i did a google search for "r34 skyline" because my cousin just got one, guess what, first page of the google search, low and behold, same picture frodo posted. *clap* *clap*

Well, mine is just like that one, I don't have a digital camera, but I wanted to show my car, so I looked for one on google that closly resembled mine, and posted it.

cool, but the sad part was, you said that the one in the picture was yours. :/

wow...do you know anything about cars? "suping" up a car isnt just nitrous or turbo. besides unless you plan on drag racing (quarter mile) nitrous is not worth it. if he was going to do performance mods he would get a new intake manifold so he can up the boost levels, an upgraded intercooler, a bigger exhaust system (3" since its turboed to allow better air flow, increasing power", a boost controller and mayber a better wastegate (to prevent boost creep, depending whats in it now), probably bigger fuel injectors...but seeing as how this is their top model it should already have quality parts already...so he would just need to up his boost and get it tuned and dyno'd so hes not running too rich/lean...

btw since you have a skyline(doubt it since your 16)...how much did you pay for it?

Glare
18-10-2004, 03:33 AM
You kids...
Why would I spend this much money on a car only to "mod" it up with cheap imported parts so it sounds like a racing car. This is a luxury car, I have no intention to drag race kids in skylines, it is for enjoyment purposes only.

heh, exactly what i was thinking, what would be the point in buying a luxury car, and over boosting it, and hanging a large front mount of it (cutting into the front bar), its pointless, the car is fast enough as it is.

It's around $80,000 USD

No, thats in Australian dollars, im pretty sure.

The Aussie dollar might as well be a peso. I lost almost 50% of my cash when I came to Europe.
