    Week old A6 4.2. Can\'t wait for the Snow!

    This is my first Audi. I've been entertaining the idea for about 3 years, ever since the 4.2 came out. I've really enjoyed my european sedans, a '79 900 Turbo Saab, '78 Volvo 244. I got a 97 Pontiac GP GT, which got me thinking about performance sedans again. The GP died in under 7 years, time for a serious ride, the A6 4.2 fit the bill perfectly. Quattro is a must for our Colorado winters, can't wait for some snow to play in. Thanks for all the insight, I'll be looking forward to throwing my 2 cents in with my experiences in this wonderful A6.

    Welcome to the Forum!

    I know what you mean about waiting for snow; i've just spent the last two winters with a 360Bhp RWD BMW, I can't wait to see how the S4 handles it. When's the first snow out there in there Colorado?

    Hi KillJoy,

    Welcome to the forum.

    I would certainly like to hear of your experiences in deep snow. Especially, comparison of Quattro handling performance with ESP switched ON/OFF etc.
