The two main reasons I picked my '97 Audi A6
were its AWD and the exterior design. I
live in Idaho and like to ski. This
car goes up the mountains with no
problem. And looks great downtown. I
didn't like the look of the 1998 models
coming out. The '97 A6 is flatter, not
so rounded like every other car on the
market. More like a race car. The
exterior design was what really excited
me about the car. Oh, and the black
color. Very cool.
My car came with every option available
on the A6. That's the only way the
dealer orders them. But the standard
feature I like is the ski sack. Also
the tinted moon roof and pouches behind
the front seats for passengers to put
I really didn't buy this car for
performance but after awhile I've come
to wish for 2 things. More low end
torque and stiffer suspension, but not too
stiff as my wife would say. German cars
have such great feel. But around the
corners it could hold up a bit better.
I may try to solve this with new tires.
