While I absolutely agree with you, I also feel that there is no other
way you'd have a manual transmission A6 Avant in the US. So if you
want one, the only choice is the Allroad.
That being said, there are quite a few guys that track their slightly
modified Allroads (420 mod, H-sport bars on hard, good tires). They
aren't as bad as you might think. Mass doesn't mean that it won't
handle well....(of course, lighter is better in this department, the
Allroad is hardly a slug and no heavier than say an S6 Avant.) I
think you're assuming that the suspension is just this insanely heavy
thing and it's not really.
