It had me at C5 S6 Avant. Here's the ad: [gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="70959"] Doug's Take The C5 Audi S6 Avant was sold in the States for just two model years – 2002 and 2003 – and it was a rarity, as Audi didn't...

Find of the Day: 2003 Highland Green Audi allroad

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="69364"] words: Bill, photos: pin maniac via Bring A Trailer For the longest time, the only allroad in the States was the C5 A6 allroad. It was a time when Audi had plenty of Avant offerings such as the S4 Avant, A4 Avant, A6 Avant. Then these started to disappear with the only Avant offered for awhile being the B8.5 A4 allroad. Then the C8 RS 6 Avant showed up as well as its less powerful sister, the A6 allroad. But if you look around, you will...

Find of the Day: 2003 Audi S6 Avant

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="68956"] words: Bill, photos: Chris Mangold What is it about wagons that have gripped enthusiasts but not the general auto-buying population? Perhaps it's due to  very lackluster wagons out there and the stigma of a mom-bus that soured prospective buyers but some companies fought back including Audi. Stuffing V8s into wagons has been around for years but Audi seem to have hit the sweet spot with the C5 S6 Avant. That fabulous 4.2 growl and ta...

Find of the Day: 2002 Audi S6 Avant Manual AND RS 6 Engine Swap

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="66137"] words: Bill, photos: ninertriplezero via Cars & Bids This year, we finally got the C8 RS 6 Avant here in the States. For way too long, we've been longingly looking across the pond while everyone else got to romp around in the super Avant. However, one person took matters into his own hands. What you see here is a C5 S6 Avant that has been transformed into an RS 6 Avant and with a manual transmission. Be still my beating heart. Here's ...

Video of the Day: Audi C5 vs C6 vs C7 vs C8 RS 6 Avants

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="60194"] words: Bill, video: carwow Let me just preface this by saying there are no losers here. Mat Watson and his team from carwow seem to know what lies at the center of my heart...the RS 6 Avant in any generation. Here he pits the latest to its older relatives and while we would like to say we know what the results would be, there might be a surprise in the mix. Enjoy the video.

Find of the Day: 2003 Audi RS 6 Avant

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="56570"] words: Bill, photos: Blue Star Motors Several months ago, I posted a C5 RS 6 Avant and that one was in Canada...and so is this one. A recent import from Japan, this one isn't your average RS 6 Avant (not like any RS 6 is average). Here's the ad: Just imported from Japan and recently registered here in BC. This is a rare Audi RS6 Avant Quattro. Well equipped with Heated power front Recaro leather seats, Heated Recaro rear seats, ...

Find of the Day: 2004 Audi RS 6 Avant

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="48150"] words: Bill, photos: Craigslist The C8 RS 6 Avant is coming but this one is already here. Ok, it's a C5 and it's in Canada but our Canadian members may want to grab this. The OG RS 6 was only offered in the North American market as a sedan but we being us, we wanted the Avant. Since Canada has the 15 year import rule as opposed to the US 25 year rule, don't be surprised to see more and more of these show up on the other side of the border...

Find of the Day: 2003 Audi RS 6 Sedan

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="37139"] words: Bill, photos: Audizine member B5stgIII Everyone's attention is on the new Audi RS 6 Avant coming to the States as a 2020 model but what about the other RS 6 that made it to the States? The C5 RS 6 came over as a sedan instead of the uberwagon but it's nothing to ignore. This example found on Audizine has only 83,xxx miles on it and looks like it's had a ton of maintenance in the last year. [gallery link="none" columns="1" size...

Find of the Day: 2003 Mugello Blue RS 6

words: Bill Cho, photos: Craigslist There are executive cars and then there are executive muscle cars. The C5 RS 6 falls into the second category. The first RS model (and only RS 6) to hit the shores of the States, it made quite an impact. Motor Trend said: "The RS 6 spools up with so little drama, it doesn’t feel as quick as it is. Until you look down and realize you’re going 20 mph faster than you thought you were–and 50 mph faster than your mother would want you to." This part...
