Watch again with tea and crumpets. It will be much better.

I will say, his videos can be either hit or miss. Some are very good, but others like the RS6 review are boring and feel like they're dragging on.

However, if there is one video of his that I absolutely love and agree 100% with, its this,

Well that's probably more the fault of the RS6 being boring

LOL! NZ's not that far away; them there's fightin' words!

I actually like him... but then I'm British so perhaps that's a factor. But the RS6 'boring'? Naaaaa, too slow (for now), hell yes.

I've been around RS6s since 09 and have driven every generation (apart from the newest) and honestly, the wagon you need is the C63 - so much more fun around corners and easier to place on the small back roads we have around here.

The torque steer in a 560-605hp C6 and C7 is absolutely terrifying. The C5 was pretty good actually and quite a bit smaller but the C6 and C7 were pretty crap to live with in NZ due to their size and torque steer. Plus the dash was all plastic - it resembled a 3 series or a C class more than a 5 series or E class imho.

The RS6 looks great IMO. I like the bold lines and bulges that makes it stand out from any angle.
Not the biggest fan of Audi but I think they have done a great job on the design.
As for performance, time will tell. Not sure if it can come close to tuned M5 though...
