3k carbon cleaning every 30k miles unless you want to be smoked by an accord due to lack of power

I've been looking into this and I've not seen really any reports of this on the RS5 like I have the other V8 Audis. The only thing this motor shares with the motor in the S5 is the displacement and number of cylinders; it's a completely new engine based on the 5.2 V10.

Um... looks like 17k is enough

some things never change.

At least there is a warranty.

The RS5 has been around for a while, it was facelifted in 2013 which is when the U.S. got them.

People also complain of the 2.0T and carbon buildup, I never once had an issue with mine. I'm not saying the potential isn't there, but Ive got a 100k mile warranty. If it has an issue I'll take it in.

I wish. Should've been more specific. The shop that did the carbon cleaning on my GTI charges 1k for the same service on an RS5.

I know that because I was talking to the service advisor about carbon cleaning in general, how it can increase performance, etc. while mine was being done. He mentioned one of his clients that has an RS5 was curious about the difference so he had his car dynoed, had the service done and then dynoed it again (must be nice to shit 50s...).

Anyway, I commented about how much it must suck to pay a ton for the same job on a car like that and he said it was "only" $400 more than I paid for the GTI service..
