My '00 A6 2.7t has been just great! When you launch right, the power
is just outstanding! I have the 6-speed and think the gears a little
closely spaced, but really didn't want a tip.
Anyway, I like it so much, I'm looking for an allroad with 6-speed to
round out the stable.
>From what I hear, if you do regular oil changes with a good synthetic
and make sure you look after any intake leaks pronto, the turbos will
be fine. (at least that's what I keep telling myself!)
