you wont be disapointed! the a6 is a great car. the 4.2 is a good engine, but check out the 2.7t. its about 0.2 seconds slower, but can be modified much more than the V8 (if youre interested in that kind of thing.. ) also, the V8 is very thirsty... i'll sacrafice 0.2 seconds from 0-60 for better fuel economy if i'm not planning on modding my car.

i dont agree... the 4.2 does not get as good of gas mialiage as the 2.7t. The descrepency you are seeing may because of driving style. The 4.2 does sound good, but it isn't much faster than the 2.7t. There are also tons more mods you can do to the 2.7t. that you cant do to the 4.2. If fuel isnt a concern, or you dont want to mod your car, then go with the 4.2Originally posted by henkka00@Nov 1 2004, 09:41 AM
A6 4.2 is a superb car! I would argue 4.2 has better milage than 2.7 bi-turbo!
( my colleague has 2.7 bi-turbo and we have followed this! same distance 1 litre/100km less with 4.2).The V8 engine "sound" is from other world! Honestly ...
I do not know why to choose 2.7 versus 4.2??
Hey, I am a newB here and I am also considering the 4.2.
