Speaking as an allroad (w/ 6-speed) owner, I'd vote for that. I think
only about 5-7% of allroads came with a stick, so they are a little
hard to come by. Look on the audiworld allroad forum. a couple of come
up for sale recently.
Also, the last year the A6 (sedan or wagon) came with a stick was the
95.5 S6. I looked into this some time ago. From 96-98(?) you couldn't
get an A6 with a stick (in the US)... to research it yourself, try the
audiworld historical specs.
Anyway,  my allroad is fun, fast and pretty sharp looking!  You'd
probably look at the mid 20K range for one of these. If you go lower,
you risk getting one that is really in bad shape.
