I too have both, but I'm more partial to my 91. The S6 is definitely more
refined in the interior. The sound deadening is pretty good compared to the
200. I like that I can hear the engine better in the 200, and I like to hear
more road noise. I also like the steering response in the 200. The steering
is much too easy in the S6. This can be disabled on the S6, but if I did it
my wife would kill me. The 200 is more of a 'sleeper', no model designation,
just the 4 rings. Plus in avant form hardly anyone knows what it is capable
Of course the above is very subjective, so for something objective, the S6
consistently runs cooler, due to the location of the radiator. The only time
that I really notice this is in rush traffic, the radiator fan comes on a
lot more in the 200 compared to the S6. Also the intercooler on the 200
supposedly, due to location, is more efficient than the S6. I've never
really driven the S6 hard enough to for this to be an issue though.

Good luck in your search.
