Coming from an A4 with a 1.8T and Tiptronic I have to admit the S6 feels like a rocket. I have also owed a modified VR6 VW before, but this car is in a different league all together. Great highway cruiser and unstoppable in snow. Build quality on this vehicle is excellent and the example I picked up does not feel 12 years old at all. As for the performance, this car will surprise its driver and put a big smile on your face ever time your drive it. I like to keep my cars in top mechanical shape which in case of this beast means shelling out few hundred bucks a year, but it all pays of in the end.Im looking forward to upcoming winter season and all the fun in the snow!
Quattro drivetrain, comfy sport seats, awesome looks.
Gas consumption is a bit high, but it is to be expected form a turbocharged car that weights close to 4000lbs.
