Re: A6 Car of the Year

HMMM let's see.  For another $15K you could just about get into a 540i
6-speed.  I guess the A6 could be worth that much more if it had a 282hp
V-8.  As it is, (in our Colorado high altitude)  it just looks good in
everyone's rear view mirrors.  I'll take mine with the twin turbo, thank-you.
