There is no gear change on an automatic A6 tranny as in the M6 manual.

You still get the oil coolers and transmission coolers which is a good thing.

I'd definitely buy the Z51 A6.

Its a hell of a car!



Good luck deciding.

They probably run about the same time in the quarter (give or take a tenth of a second and I believe the A6 would be the quicker)...and I definitely believe the roll on performance of the A6 should be a lot stronger than the A4.

Thats the value of the A6. I think it has the roll on acceleration capability to be always be ready to kick @ss where as the A4 could be easily caught out of the powerband.... (on the highway)

Of course an aftermarket torque convertor and gears in the A4 could compensate but stock for stock?

Between the two I'd personally choose the A6 over the A4.

if your buying new? I'd say the upcoming 425hp 2008 C6 information being released on april 28th should effectly increase the potiential for 10 grand discounts on remaining 07's.

If you wait for 2008 they are offering a performance axle ratio with the auto. It only kicks it up from 2:59 to 2:79 but it needs it and will be a welcome addition. Good luck on whatever you do. :thumbsup:

Won't be much info available until after April 28th when they debut the 08 at the C5/C6 Bash in Bowling Green. That;s why I'm going down, to see if I want to order one or just add some goodies to my 07. :D
