Gary - the pros and cons of these have been pretty well covered. But why not
see if you can't find a clean S6? They're getting to be fairly inexpensive
(at least the sedans) and truly kill it in the mountains, especially if you
chip them.

Or an S4?

If you're thinking turbocharged audi, I'd add these to the mix. You might be
able to find a nice clean example with all the upgrades done (chip, brakes,
etc), and the S-Car forum will help you work on it yourself. A lot of very
experienced folks over there.

Good luck.
