You are in the Audi A6
What is this discussion about?
Infiniti M35, Audi A6, Sedan

I didn't pay much attention to the A6 when I was shopping last year (and chose the M35) largely because the local Audi dealer was notorious for poor service. He has since sold out and I understand things are better now.
That aside, I have a close friend who studies cars with a passion ... owns quite a few himself ... and for his daily drive he selected the A6 w/ the V8 because he says it's clearly the best of the best. Bart

Bart ... if you were buying now, would you lean toward the Audi A6 V8 over the M? ... Charlie

Charlie ... I'd definitely give it a close look, but given the fact that I opted for the M35's V6 I doubt I'd go for the V8 of the Audi. It would have to be materially more appealing than my M35 for me to make the switch, however, because the Infiniti dealership is 5 minutes from my office while Audi is across town ...
Little question I'll rely on my friend's research ... he's the one who turned me on to the Infiniti in the first place.
Another factor, of course, is what else "new" will be out there two years from now and what my mood will be at the time. I'm embarrassed to admit it here but I've always craved a Jag Vanden Plas and if there's a nice gently used Jag certified one I might even go crazy and satisfy that long-standing passion. And to further confuse the answer, I'm in my late 60's and approaching retirement so a daily ride to the office becomes less important and I might even step back a notch or two in class!
How's that for a long run for a short jump? LOL Bart
