If it is green don't buy it.

Audi's 4.2L is strong, and their tranmissions get MAJOR props from ALL the car mags.

Bottom line: THEY KNOW THEIR SHIAT!

Currently: 2004 Honda Civic Ex 5 Speed
17X7 BSA Wheels - 215/45/17 Falkens; Complete JL System; Magnaflow Catback; Lowered 1.4"

Last Car:
Custom Magnaflow Dual Exhaust; 2003 Cobra Rims with Kelley 255/45/17s;Steeda U/Ds; B&M Transmissoin Cooler; Dirtyd0g's custom 2800 Stall Torque Converter; J-Mod Kit installed by Dirtyd0g; SCT Tuned by Darrin; Lowered with Spring Tech Springs

Want great work done on your tranny? Have dirtyd0g do it! He made a believer out of me!

My Mom had a 1999/2000 A6 and it was a really nice car -
Main problems we found were electrical. (seats & side mirrors)

The A8 is really nice tho since it has a rust-proof body
- Would be my choice for a sedan

It's a decent sedan. I test drove a Audi A6 2.7T once and it was pretty quick...

Solid car.....watching "Ronin" will make you like it even more.

lol, why? it is green. i checked book, and it's still worth almost $15k with 107k miles on it. too much imo for a car thats 7 yrs old and has that mileage.
