RE: "RS2 Envy" Follow Up...

Indeed, in USA the S6 was only available in 5sp manual. In Europe there
were also 6sp manual and 4sp automatic versions. If you have _lot_ of
money to spend, you could probably order an S6 automatic transmission
from Europe or fit the V8 transmission. The S6 in stock form does not
come close to RS2 performance (230hp vs. 315hp on RS2), but add a chip,
RS2 turbo and exhaust manifold and custom exhaust and you can go well
past the RS2 performance. Mind you, however, that the RS2 was based on a
80 Avant platform, while S4/S6 are based on 100/A6 platform.
