A4 and A6 drive


	I drove a new A4 at the dealer in Buffalo last week.  Very nice 
car.  Very stiff chassis, very little torque steer, good steering 
response.   It had overassisted brakes, and steering.  I did think that 
the shocks were superb for an OEM application.

	My employer has an new A6 for competitive analysis, so I drove it 
a couple times this week.  They bought a fwd with a 5-speed.  I was 
impressed by the 2.8 V6.  It made good torque, and revved smoothly right 
up to redline.  I thought it was fairly refined.  The shift was very 
smooth and effortless.  I did think the chassis was lacking compared to 
the A4.

	Does anyone know if the 2.8 V6 will bolt up to the transmission 
in my '86 5KCSTQ?  Yes, I liked it that much.  (add a turbo, and it 
should really go)
