    Shame to hear your cab has gone, good luck with the new one though.

    Good luck mate.... I've been eyeing up a 3.0T A6 Avant / A7 too... any tips?

    A7's are silly money still, but there's some amazing A6 Avants out there!

    Not keen on the NA engine though: the 3.0T is a lot more money, but 10mpg better, 50hp more, £225/yr less tax and nearly 100lb/ft more torque than the 3.2FSI.... if I'm going back to a petrol engine, I like the idea of getting the same tax rate, torque and mpg as my TDI, but 100hp more than the 2.5TDI...

    3.2FSI vs 3.0TFSI (LINK for side by side comparison)

    And there's some pretty good "older" 3.0T's out there: £23k asking for this 60 plate 3.0T (LINK) and £30k if you want a pre-reg'd (500miles!) 12-plate car, so the newer, lighter model (LINK).

    I just had a look on autotrader and if I wanted to spend less than £20k, then 5.2 V10 S6.... LINK

    But if I'm considering older cars, then I'd go back up to £30k and look at all the RS6's there
