RE: RE: First A6 V8

The sales brochure indicates it is 1.4 inches longer, it looks to as though
the length is added between the front of the front wheel well d the front
bumper. It also has a 1.5 inch wider front track and a 0.6 inch wider rear
track, wheel base is the same.
As is typical of Audi the differences are very subtle and stealthy.

		The A6 4.2 does have some body changes compared to the
standard A6 2.8.
		The sides of the front grill is much more vertical (making
the shape
		of the grill more square than the inverted trapezoid).  The
front bumper
		cover is different, the wheel arch flares are much more
