    I'm quite happy with my TQS tbh.

    Dont like the B6, and the B7/8's are still too expensive.

    I do have a soft spot for the C5 A6 4.2 though, in avant guise. The Auto box would do my head in though, and ripping it out for a manual would be a must.

    not done with mine yet but I am looking for a larger auto for the "family" car
    I am looking at a C5 A6 2.5tdi Avant Q when the golf comes off lease. 3.0l is also a possible but seems to hold too much of a premium to justify the lower fuel consumption
    Seriously thought about an RS6 (C5) but I would have to get rid of mine and that is just not on!

    I was seriously considering a b7 S4 2005 as they're becoming more affordable. My annual mileage is very low therefore fuel cost isn't an issue, the main issue is insurance cost. The lowest quote I found was £1200+ because of the higher risk in parts of Newcastle.

    The other reason preventing me from changing is my A4 refuses to die. It's bullet proof. :banghead: :laugh:

    I will probably keep my A4 until its dies or I have the cash to buy an RS4 (B5) or an old 911.

    ^^^ Exactly my thoughts. Been toying with the 996 (911) idea for a while
