Default I miss my S8.. this A6 sucks

I have the 2014 S8 in getting the downpipes replaced and I got an A6 4 cyl loaner. Wow, this car is so flimsy and chintzy compared to the S8.. It's weird.. same color, same lighting and basic setup but man so much cheaper feeling all around. Since the S8 is my first Audi I guess I assumed they were all as nice?! Can I have my car back please? 😬

Maybe the $35K price difference is the reason. DUH!

$35k ? Uhhhh try more like $70k difference if base model to base model lol. It's more than double the price of the a6.

True, the list price in 2014 for mine was $123,500... still though this 2017 A6 retails new for over $40k right? It just doesn't feel that nice to justify that price to me.

genesis g80 is way better unfortunately... he is not out of touch with the real world as the a6 is a terrible buy in my opinion. You are absolutely paying for the brand at that level as the overall feel of the car is on par with a kia optima sxl as that is what my brother has.

Actually the kia optima has the better interior lol... just an overall better car than the a6. .. but as far as the a8/s8 is concerned those Korean companies just doesn't have anything to compare and are not going for that level of car.

and if you don't believe me then you should go check out some of those cars... they are pretty impressive for the amount of car you get for the dollar amount.

Thanks for the defense! I traded in a 2013 Ford Focus ST which was way more fun to drive and honestly felt just as nice with the my ford touch interface.. and I paid 25k for it!!!! My friends GTI feels nicer and my buddy's VW wagon too. I bought my S8 used.. this A6 just doesn't feel worthy of a $>52k car but my S8 feels worth it. Just a fun comparison not trying to troll..

Total nonsense. The major car magazines all love the A6, people that review cars for a living

Why is it that most of your posts are derogatory and critical of others opinions?
