Audi RS4 — long-term review
Mr Charles Turner, leader of this parish, dislikes the RS4’s 20-inch rims, thinks they’re “too blingy,” prefers the 968 Clubsport ‘Cup’ wheels on the RS2. Fair play on the RS2 (and an excellent excuse to borrow one – for comparison purposes, of course) but too blingy? Sorry, boss, you’re mad. Yes, it’s a snug fit under those arches, but their purpose isn’t merely aesthetic, each is milled from a single billet of aluminium. This not only gives you something to bore your friends with in the pub, it also saves 2kg per corner compared with forged equivalents. That’s an 8kg total saving, for the mathematically impaired. Looking forward to seeing if such slim improvements can save the RS4 from its 1,715kg mass… if I still have a job, that is.
