You had one and went to a b5.5? I haven't been able to tell if the Sports Package is standard or not. Is it? Matter of fact I have yet to find one to test drivehoffbrau said:I had a 4.2 the car before my b5.5. In a nutshell, the car was the bomb. Very fast, albeit for an automatic, and instant power when you wanted it. I drove the 2.7t and the 4.2, and there was no comparison. Of course, my wife wouldn't let me get the 2.7t with a 6-speed or......
Very nice luxury touches, as was to be expected in an Audi, and the car was fantastic on the open road.
You can't go wrong with it, really. I highly recommend the sports package with the car, as well: great wheels and 4 bucket seats.
I might look for that section while I'm looking for the a 4.2. The 2.7t is nice but the 4.2 has that look with the flared fenders. I just need to find one to test drive.....20vvillian said:.... bling bling section at the discoteq :thumbup:
I agree with you 110%, I just referred on HunterRose wish to have larger car.A6 is not larger inside that B5/5.5 or is, but insignificatly.20vvillian said:Hey nenad when you wrap your meaty paws around the steering wheel of a 4.2 or the magically delicious 2.7t the memory of that benign v6 2.8 will fall out of your head like the screws in your belly pan.
The 2.7t is a blast to drive and if you tune it theres not many cars that can match the pace. I'm going to be seeking one out in the future but I'm also considering the A8 slapping some 20' on and parking in the bling bling section at the discoteq :thumbup:
Priorities....ahhhh! give this man some applause please! :thumbup:hoffbrau said:You had one and went to a b5.5?
Yes, actually I did.
My wife and I had our second child, and we felt that her quitting her job to stay at home with the kids was more important than driving a 50k car.
I do miss the power, though.
Oldsmobile just recalled 1995-1997 Auroras for engine fire problems.Sharky said:I LOVE 4.2 A6s.
Same way I love Northstar Sevilles, Olds Auroras, W8s, 540s, the last SHOs....anything roomy with a stout V8 and I'm in.
Don't rag on me for metioning American cars in there with the German ones. Torque is about the only thing that makes me overlook the stuff we all loath the American cars for.
