2012 Audi A6 3.0T Premium quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl S/C 8A)
First time Audi owner ... I could not be happier with the A6.
Considered the BMW 535xi, e350, and Infiniti 37x.
Test drove each 2 different times and each time I was swayed towards the A6.
BMW was quickly eliminated because of the run flat tires.
I have heard several stories that they are costly and prone to issues.
37x was eliminated because the shifting seemed a bit harsh and quirky.
Also, I did not like the navigation.
e350 was eliminated (even though I was offered a 11% off MSRP) because in the end I preferred the ride, feel, and technology of the A6.
For me, the A6 offered the best ride and performance of the others.
