Also, with the B7's out for a while and B8's RIGHT around the  
corner... the value of the B6 generation cars (01 to 05?) is coming  
WAY down. A friend is returning a leased 05 USP A4 soon and it hurts  
how low the value is compared to when the lease began 4 years ago.

If you can find a really low mile 05, off a lease return or something,  
I think you'd have a great deal on your hands (like Tom's email  
below). The B6's also had a few problems with coilpacks and some small  
things, so as long as those details are already dealt with, I think  
you'll be trouble free for quite a while.
