My bad, I meant the V8 S4 coming in a couple years.
I tend to forget about the RS6 for a couple reasons-
totally out of my price range, and Audis stupid
decision not to equip it with a manual transmission.

So yes, in hindsight my reply did miss the mark a
little bit.  I think your point was that the 2.7TT
would hold value as long as there is no new
S4 available.  That I agree with.  I think values will
hold pretty flat, but will drop once the new V8 S4
arrives.  I also agree with you in that an NA V8 is
much less interesting than the 2.7TT, but I suspect
the masses (which think an NA M3 is the benchmark
car) will soak them up.  Looks like the 00S4 will
stay in my fleet for quite some time.
