RS7 - faster (more powerful engine), 8 speed tranny (vs 7 speed), more exclusive than S7, around $25,000 more expensive. It will be more expensive to ensure and maintain.
Depends on what you're looking for @ ~$110K. If money means nothing and you want one of the worlds fastest four-door cars, then of course get the RS7.
If you're the type of person who likes to be noticed and have people know you're driving a $110,000 car - the RS7 is very understated and most people won't know the difference between it and a base A7.
Ain't it great to have choices???
