Now its BMW's turn to bring over an M3/5 Wagon, which sadly won't happen probably
Probably won't be available to test drive on dealer lots as it's custom order only. Which really decreases Audi's risk in bringing this model stateside. Pretty much guarantees that only people who really want one will get one. If not, they don't have to have vehicles sitting empty on lots

My personal assumption is total sales for this car in the US will be under 50 lol.
Hardly a fair assessment of wagon demand. Not many folks have $110k+ for a car, even if it is kick ass.

Given the sales of E63 Tourings, I'd suspect this will likely sell in the double digits per year.

However, bring the RS4 Avant and my wife's next car will be on order.

BMW can't do something similar because they don't have the vehicle. They don't have the vehicle because they have not been able to make a business case. Why have they not been able to make a business case despite that VAG and Mercedes can? I don't know, but its definitely not because they don't want money. So there must be a pretty darn good reason.

That is only in the view of "car enthusiasts".

X6 was a completely random, unique car when BMW first introduced it that made no sense for the most part but the regular buyer loved the SUV and Benz straight up copied it after seeing the sale numbers.

RS6 Avant is for a very niche buyer. US never liked hatches, at least the high performance ones, not to mention how expensive the RS6 Avant will be, it won't sell in quantity. SUVs are going to be the thing here for a while unless something changes. No matter how many people rave over this car, only a small fraction of you would actually end up buying it.

This always happens.

X3M $85k
Macan S spec'd out how I want $103k
This with ceramics and high end audio ~$120k? (Only options I'd want)

Obviously they are not in same league. But they all serve one purpose for me. Space for dog and child with room to spare and compliment my GT3. Would be a sweet pair. 😃

How difficult do you guys think it will be to get an allocation? I can't imagine it being too difficult comparing to the M2CS or GT4 as it's just a serial production vehicle, albeit from Audi Sport.

About as difficult as a E63 wagon, if they're in similar price range/within $10-15k of each other.

Remember, this is a true niche vehicle. Most out there would rather spend $100k on a 911, Porsche, etc etc, not a wagon. I would drive the fuck out of this car. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, everything in between, this car will satisfy my life.

I daily a Golf All Track, with my manual M2 Comp. The RS6 may just eliminate the need for a daily and 'weekend' car. As much as I love driving manual, goddamnit I need this RS6 wagon in my life.

A Macan S for 103K? Jesus...

I'd rather get a used Macan turbo for $50s, it'll serve both purposes you seek with a smile on your face

While you can definitely find used Macan Turbo for $50s; any I've considered are usually in the $70s. Dangerously close to new X3M Comp territory.

If I were ready to buy a car right now I'd definitely look at this Macan Turbo. 18-way seats, Active Cruise Control, and super-low miles. Originally $96,750, 4500 miles in for $77,900? Nice. I'm just not sure I couldn't get or want my x3M Comp build for the same money. 🤔

The RS6 news; and following a Panamara Sport Turismo down I-95 through CT yesterday had me reviewing all the CPO Sport Turismos last night. As expected, Turbos were still over $100k , but S4 models were under $100. I think there were a couple of base models in the $80s if I remember correctly.
