Spent best part of the day bringing the car up to a nice standard.

First was the headlights, these are so cool, some of the nicest I have seen, I like them better than the newer ones, they were not to bad, but showing many miles of stone chips, so they needed addressing.





few hours here - After




Then Clayed, machined polished and Graphened !!

Looks awesome. I totally agree. The older style matrix LED headlights are much more evil looking than the facelift ones.

Thanks, and I agree on the headlights, they look very menacing. Really pleased I ended up with Daytona, it’s a really nice colour in the metal, lots going on with it.

Absolutely superb looking machine - and it goes well too!

No better fast estate than this for me. Great colour and spec and now looking even better with the mods and a detail.

I can't decide if the matt silver looks better than the black pack and I would 100% have thought better black, but liking the silver highlights on the mirrors, front spoiler and roof bars especially.

Cheers mate believe it or not it’s booked in for a de-chrome, but the more I look at it the more I like it, and it’s an RS signature with Matt mirrors and silver trim, so we will have to see. I could not do anything with the exhaust trims as they are to far gone to get really nice, so they will be coming off to be ceracoted.

It has come up well, it’s still better in the metal, it’s one of the cars that’s impressive when you standing looking at it, the size of everything and all the bulges. My dad drove it today and I followed him, Jesus with the spacers it’s look so fat and so sinister!

So my initial thoughts on the C7 RS6, things I like:
  • The looks, it just can't be mistaken for anything else, not sure you can call it a sleeper as some do, as in the metal its a monster ! One of the coolest cars made?
  • Interior, its a lovely place to be and the material quality is superb.
  • Spec, they are well specced as standard, but I love the gadgets and I am a sucker for a proper "Fully loaded" car!
  • Comfort, speed and handling at the twist of a knob. The DRC & Dynamic pack's is great, and turning the car into a slammed race car is fun.
  • How it hides its size. It does not feel like you are driving something as big and as long as an oil tanker at all.
  • Practical, not really my thing, but it is, Very.
  • Probably to fast, but its a riot (this will also be in don't likes) This can kill most things and its an estate.
  • All weather, continent crushing ability.
  • Positive attention. For the few days I have had it, I have been surprised by the thumbs up and attention its received. People seem to know and like it.
  • Probably the one car you would only ever need.
  • How it goes about its business. You can drive around in perfect comfort, no hassle, no worries and without a single clue of what this is capable of.
  • Others shot gun reaction. Normally WTF! Took a mate in it yesterday (he has a B7 RS4) and he pulled a whitie !
The Don't Likes:
  • Its probably to fast for the size and weight. You get to silly speed really quickly and you are always heavy on the brakes or hustling it around a corner you are going to fast into. I think I will kill disc's on this car!
  • Hides speed to well. It cocoons you in speed, it just makes for less drama at low speeds
  • Bit numb, it never really talks to you about whats going on, again probably to good, to refined, to fast and to easy to drive fast.
  • Fuel - I have filled up twice already in a number of days and I will no doubt need a third today! Worth it though !
  • My wife don't like it, its a long car to her, and a big family one at that. She also needs a sports bra in Dynamic mode.
  • I do worry about my license a bit!
My new favorite gadget :cool: (y)

Styling seems a lot more resolved than the later cars. Looks really good although I would prefer the roof rails in black. What polish and pads did you use?
