You've got to get some seat time in each. That's the only thing that

I've owned a 200T (10 valve) and an S6, and between the two, I'd pay the
extra money for an S4 or S6. The S6 feels smaller, more tossable to me, the
200T felt like a larger car and a bit more ponderous.

But drive a couple of examples of both, and you'll know which one you want.

'95.5 S6 avant
'96 A6 quattro avant
