Default Time To Move On

Owned my S6 for almost a year now. Great car. Fast and reliable. However, I truly miss owning a coupe. Every car I've owned in the past was a coupe. So I guess I'm just more geared towards coupes. Hopefully, I'll be getting into something nice soon. How many of you guys switched to an S6 from a coupe and love the switch?

Also I have a few parts for sale if anyone is interested, looking for a quick sale:

I came from an S5. Liked the S5 but love the S6. Mostly because it's faster. This engine is light years ahead of the old 4.2 V8. Combined with the S-tronic and I'm happy. We had a baby and needed a backseat, even if it's only used a few times in a year.

Tough to beat the looks of the 5 tho.

I hear that. It is the only thing the S5 has on the S6 but it is a pretty big advantage.

The S6 is my first Audi, but I have to admit it was the S5 that originally made me start lusting for the brand.

Im in the same boat. Im getting into my 3rd S6 in March. I heavily debated on going for the RS5 but I really felt I would be missing a lot of the technology(love the air suspension). I also think the 4.0 is superior to the 4.2 in many ways.

Now if they put the 4.0 in the RS5 I would have been all over it. That being said, I think the S6 is probably the best bang for the buck as an all around car in the Audi lineup.

Ditto. I had one of the first S5 with the V8 (manual trans) and love my S6 for more space + many other features missing from my S5.

Sold my 09 S5 right around a year ago. Miss it dearly.

I consulted with 'my' Audi techs, who knew I was down to RS5/S6. They had driven everything by that time, and just said, 'go with the technology'. The only thing that would have steered me towards a coupe would have been an RS5 with 'our' engine. I still miss the RS4, for the sound and sharper handling (sharper relative to Audis, of course), but we both like the extra room and I am amazed at the effortless power coupled to astonishing gas mileage on trips (better than her A4 Allroad in fact).
