Re: Re: S6 or S6Plus

But the sporting nature of the S4 doesn't carry over to the 2.7t A6. You'd
really need to work on the spring and damping rates to get rid of some of
the body lean. But yes, the MY 2000 pricing is off the wall, in that is is
A) low, and B) so close together. *Only* $10,000 US separated the base price
for the A4 2.8 sedan from the A6 2.7t, with the 2.8 Avant, TT, TTq, S4, A6
2.8 and A6 2.8 Avant all falling inbetween. And it isn't like these are
stippos either...

Audi's, which of course included the 2.7T a6.  It has excactly the same
motor as the new S4 (which was also there).  Both cars are a lot of fun.
The documentation that was given to me by > AoA specs the engines the same.
As for 0-60 times the S4 was 5.6 and the A6 2.7T was 6.0 seconds.
