Interesting observations.  I'd actually LOVE to buy a
new performance sedan.  A6 4.2?  A6 Avant 2.5 TDI w/
6sp.?  Except their price approachs the cost of my
house.  Or what I paid for every vehicle I've ever
owned-combined.  Something less?  I think having
driven other cars, I'd be somehow disappointed by
comparison.  I found out early in my life when I was
into drag racing I didn't need to brag because friends
and others had plently to tell.  Also if you were
really fast, everyone seemed to come find you.
