    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 :)
