I came from a 2000 Passat 1.8T.
I loved the Passat and had it not been
for the Chrome trim and taller
greenhouse, I might have gone with the
B5.5 model Passat.
But the A6 seemed to tie it together
better than both the Passat and the A4.
The car has got looks, more than enough
power for civilized driving, plenty of
room in a shiek cabin, and the road
manners of a locomotive- meaning it
In good weather it's nice with the roof
open and Bose stereo up, but this car
even makes bad weather fun to drive
in. Comfortable, stable/predictable,
solid, etc... I knew this coming into
the relationship, and I have not been
let down yet.
Design. It's just a sexy car, any way
you look at it.
My only regret today is possibly not
getting an Avant (I should have!)
I wish the interior had the same
lighting as the VWs. I prefer the
blue/indigo gauges to these red ones.
Other than that, maybe some bigger and
nicer stock wheels. My 16" wineglass
wheels don't do the car justice.
