In 2014 I bought my first car, a 2014 RS5.
I had gone in to buy 2014 S4 and somehow ended up in an RS5.
- The spec:
- Sepang Blue pearl effect
- 20" Rotor Design Wheels
- Sports Exhaust
- Black Nappa interior
- Dynamic Steering
It was an amazing car, powerful enough for my liking and safe enough with all wheel drive. I had the roof wrapped in gloss black by a local shop; he also did the aluminum optics look on the splitter and diffuser. I went back later and had the brakes wrapped in reflective red and (the most hated thing I did to this car) the "eyeliner" aluminum wrap on the front. Before you say something, I hate it now too.
The only other mod (besides some cosmetic stuff) I had done to the car was a resonator delete. Ohh god did it sound good. Especially when shifting at 8500 RPM.
Now on to the reason I sold it. Very simple - the brakes. The brakes had a very bad habit of warping. First time this was an issue was around 9k miles into ownership. I had the brakes replaced under warranty with no problem. It started to become an issue with the second set only lasting 1000 miles (about two weeks of driving). The same happened with the following set and the following set, and the following set... and the following set. I ended up having to sell the car because I could drive it for 2 weeks and then wouldn't have it for the following 2 weeks due to scarcity of parts. Very annoying to pay for a car that you can only use 50% of the time. So this car was sold for my '16 Golf R (that was wrapped satin white) which was later sold for my W204 AMG.
