I too agree with the below. Except I prefer the 200. I like the heavier
steering (I realize this can be remedied on the S6), stiff clutch and
shifter. I simply feel more connected with the car, and feel like a more
active participant in the act of driving. The S6 is so nice and comfortable,
it is definitely a more refined driving environment. Plus the 200 (wagon in
my case) is such a sleeper. It seems like no one on the street has any idea
of what it is capable of.
