Thanks guys. Whats amazing to me is how many RS6's we sell wheels to in Europe. Huge market. Rumors are we finally get it here this generation.

The generation above is my favorite wagon. Amazing use of space and looks so sexy.

Wheels are sharp, but that is not the car to drop. I think the RS6 up a bit has about the biggest wheel I would want.

Followed a blacked-out 2007 S4 avant while driving home in the rain from work yesterday ...

This one's nice, too ....

That is a classic. Perfect size and so well constructed. Aging beautifully.

That generation and the one with the V10 were the best in my opinon. The newer one that we are rumored to be getting has too much slope in the back really. It almost is like a mix between a propper wagon and a 4door coupe body.

BBS wheels would be a good addition, but I kind of like the OEM's in the pic. And yeah carbon to replace the silver would look great..

At one point I owned an Audi 5000S wagon in Germany. 5 speed manual, but that thing was an absolute mess driving in rain or snow. The back end was real heavy, so loading up the rear made it a not so fun ride. Here's what it looked like (stock photo):

Saw that on BAT this weekend. Absolutely beautiful piece that guy has built. I am sure that is a blast to drive.

Yep, way too expensive for what you get. $65k is ridiculous when comparable cars (A4 Allroad, Volvo V60, and 3 series wagon) all start ~$20k less.

Agree. I believe an E350 4Matic is about that price. I'd rather have the Benz.

Not only this, but they're somewhat difficult to find, and some dealers / sales people don't even know what they are .. And the dealers that may have one or two on the lot refuse to negotiate on them so they sit.. As good as they look in pictures, they are even better looking in person..

This color ( Rossello Red Metallic ) I happen to like a lot, just not sure if I like the way the interior color combo goes with the exterior.

That red on the inserts is too red, IMO. The exterior color is gorgeous.

^My exact feeling, too much red that IMO doesn't go well with the exterior color..

The dealer isn't doing that car any justice, he should take some more exterior pics of it in the sun..

I would have purchased a wagon instead of the CX-5 if we actually had options under $35K besides the Alltrack that is overpriced. And some boring Outback of course.

The Regal TourX was also too expensive to get safety tech and good headlights.

I'm digging the new Seat Leon Cupra R ST (that's a mouthful). It's got 365bhp and goes 0-62mph in 4.5 seconds. It's very RS3 Sportback-y.
