No it's not, it's a bad copy of the A5.
They just copied the A5 front end and sticked it to the Altis 2.3 body.

Finished up my A5 yesterday:

Just look at the pictures:

Blitz RS4





On the side the RS4 has a rounded straight rib, just like the altis 2.3 and the Xceed Civic.
The A5 has no rib on the side, just a curve at the top which is above the wheelarches.
This is clearly not their on the RS4.
Also the rear wing is different.

i know what they both look like but in the states the exceed is so difficult to get that the rs4 will be a very good alternative than spending $45 on a sedan body. I have had the A5 since late oct-nov

Well why didn't you said that in the first place, instead of stating they are the same, when they clearly aren't?.

There will be some handling differences, and since the RS4 front end is identical to the A5 it's just a shameless copy.

Is it that expensive in the states, over here the Xceed A5 is the cheapest body you can get.
The protoform one's are the most expensive around here.
