I wanted to like it, I really did. But I just can't get past that awful rear bumper and the immense weight of this thing. She's a bit...portly.

I wish the wagon version of the S3/RS3 was available here.

Different rear bumper and this RS6 would be pretty solid.

Definitely would colour match that rear bumper moulding.

However, what is the appeal of a station? Especially with that weight penalty...

I would say some of the original Audi Avants (early 2000's) could have been called sleepers since they didn't go crazy on the body and just stiffened the suspension and dropped in the big motors. However, the new RS lines from Audi have more aggressive fenders and aero bits all around. Definitely no longer sleeper looking cars even in Avant trim.

I'd love an E63 AMG estate for its ability to be one of the most spacious estates there is but capable of serious speed with that amazing engine noise. My favourite part of the F1 is the V8 Mercedes estate doing practice laps, it just looks and sounds wrong. I've never had a silly car before and a four year old E63 with the 5.5 V8 is a reasonable price these days which is tempting.
