One Great Automobile!

2001 Audi A6 4.2 Quattro AWD 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 5A)
Review
I didn't expect to love this car. After a 20 minute work out with a 540, I was still pumped when I got to the Audi dealer. I expected to confirm 540 supremacy - wrong! The A6 shocked me - beautiful & polished; solid feel from the door handle to the wheel; powerful, lusty V8; smooth & confident pedal response and a "one-ness" not found in the BMW. I knew the quattro would have an advantage in snow & ice, I didn't expect the significant difference on wet, gravel, sandy roads, or even uphill turning acceleration. The 540 is an awesome car on a clear dry day, but for an everyday sports sedan there is no comparison.
Favorite Features
True sports car performance, every day manners, any day capability and room for friends. Oh, yes, the 4 year 50K worry free maintenance is nice, too.
Suggested Improvements
ummm. . . more power, stiffer suspension, 1st gear down-shift capability --- my M5 dreams have been replaced by RS6 fantasies!
