Need help buying your next car? Click and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!
It’s a truly sad day here at carwow HQ... The time has come for Mat to say goodbye to his Audi RS6!
It’s been his very own long-term test car for the past several months, and it’s now time to find out just what it’s really like to live with Audi’s range-topping performance estate.
There are some qualities that probably don’t need explaining in this video. For one, we’re all surely in agreement that it looks great both inside & out, right? And when it comes to taking on competitors over the quarter-mile, it can easily hold its own… At least, it can if the track’s wet!
But then again, racing down the quarter-mile isn't everything, and it's fair to say there are some things which Mat wasn't so fond of! And when you consider you’ll be paying £100,000+ for an RS6, surely you want to be satisfied with every little bit of the car, right?!
Want to find out what problems Mat had with his RS6? And more importantly, want to find out whether he would willing choose one if he had the opportunity to buy one? Well you know what to do… Sit back, relax and enjoy his RS6 Goodbye review!

  • Hey Mat, just a little correction: Min 11:15: the Side mirror has a blind spot warning light, which is the dark glass on the inside. The tiny light at the far end of the mirror is not a blind spot warning, but the actual indicator light, so it shows u that you have the indicator light on 😉 Otherwise i still am a fan of your channel 😜 keep up the great work. Cheers!

  • The only bad thing about this car's design is the inflated looking thing bottom of the rear glass, it would be better if the line goes straight until the rear lights like the previous one, i think that part s not aggressive enough unlike the rest of the car. But except that it is probably one of the best looking cars.

  • Hey Mat, i've had a similar noise coming from the back of the car. In my case it was the hook of the rear seats rubbing against the lock of the mechanism. Once the seats where folded down, the noise was gone.

  • Why are the options so expressive?? Gah. I'm hunting for a used Audi S8 and I'll be tuning that instead. My A6 has almost 500 hp and sits on Bilstein PSS10 coilovers, forged rims, 275 tires; it's pretty awesome. Was hoping to eventually get an RS6, since they came to Canada now, but they priced out of a sale, basically only for really rich people.

  • Wait a second. Radar cruise control is extra, and you can't get massaging seats??? Cooled seats are also extra? Is this not a luxury car, Audi?? I'm not as much into the RS6 as I was a year ago. I keep finding things like that that I really dislike as a business practice.

  • Great video Matt. I bought a new Vorsprung RS6 in Jan. Creaked and rattled. Needed a new water pump after 2 months. More creaks, rattles, buzzes. Got rid of it & now in an X5M Competition (Ultimate Pack). SO much better and superb build quality and with massage seats. Not discernably slower. A superb machine.

Had Audi mostly cuz of awd, now every manufacturer is making their own flavor of awd will they be better than quattro? Maybe some with drift mode but overall liveability and excited to see the m3 in action matt. The best videos are always with you and yanni
