[200q20v] First Post. No 20v yet.

There is no fun quotient for the 95 A6 Avant. We test drove one, and my wife
was accelerating from a light. I said "step on it" and she said "You won't
believe this, but I am". We bought a 91 200q20V avant, no comparison in
acceleration, handling and braking (UFO and love it), and the 91 is much
larger inside as well.

Daily driver for the family - once you get it sorted out.

Good luck
