You gotta pay to play!

2002 Audi S6 Avant quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (4.2L 8cyl 5A)


A sports car with lots of room! I talked the wife into getting it because of its inherent virtues of safety, stability, reliability, versatility, and luxury. I just wanted something fun to drive that would fit a family. You won't win many off the line against some of today's high performance vehicles, but the power delivery seems endless once you get past 60. I might as well pay in advance for speeding tickets. Maintenance/gas ain't cheap! 8 quarts of synthetic oil/$40 filter 20+gal of premium (I get 19-20 combined MPG, when I'm easy on it). Big vented brakes = big $$. Trust me - it is all worth the experience! So far it has proven to be very solid and reliable.

Best Features

I love the snarl of the 40 vlv 4.2L V8, handling of quattro AWD, Recaro buckets, alcantara headliner, real wood/metal trim, Parktronic, bright finish accents, decent Bose stereo (engine sounds better), terrific suspension and brakes, the thumbs up you get on the hwy from other Audi enthusiasts, etc.

Worst Features

Hi beam HID is great, but lo beam HID is poor - euro spec HIDs better. 1 decent cupholder would be nice, but would detract from the superb interior layout. Stupid placement for antenna (between roof rails)!!
