Off-topic 2015 Audi RS8 Turbo, to Tune or not to tune

Buddy of mine got himself a used 2015 Audi RS8T (12.000 miles on it and he got a really good deal, almost too good to be true...) however, we were talking about tuning.

It's already fast as hell, if he would tune it, how much faster would it be, and what and where would you get it done?

S6 can run 10's with a stage 2 tune. The RS7 is even quicker and it's transmission can withstand more abuse.

It’s a 520hp cruiser. I would tell him to leave it alone for awhile. It still has at least a power train warranty.

You obviously don't know your Audi's. For every S model there is an RS model. The R8 stands by itself.

The 2018 RS8 should be coming out soon if not already.

Lol it's almost August 2018... 2019 models are coming out soon. The 2018 RS8 was only a rumor, did not go past that. Do some research before you post garbage.. Another question you should ask yourself is why would they release a 560hp "RS8" if the S8 has 605hp?

You should follow your own advice. The RS8 has 605hp and capable of 650hp.

Iím the owner of multiple Audiís including an 802HP S8+ built by MTM known as the Talladega R.

Besides that car I have a 2017 RS3 tuned by MTM and an 18 A6.
And in the past Iíve had an RS5, S5, and a Q5

Audi has confirmed multiple times they wonít build an RS8 due to their belief that there is no market share for an RS8 to exist.

Once again, the RS8 does not exist. The S8 has 605hp and is capable of 760hp+ tuned...
