nice cars! I like the old lamborghinis and ferraris I think those are some of their best cars. Don't get me wrong, I like the new ones but the older ones have that classic or sleek look to them that you just can't replace.

while I'm not the biggest BMW fan out there, I do like the higher end models such as the M5 and 7 series. I think the M5 is really cool!

I was gassing up one day, the guy at the next pump had a mid-range BMW, I looked over & said nice car, he glanced at my 2.0 Passat same year, 2 year's old [I have 2.0 Audi A4 now] & said I'd rather have one of those, & he explained, heavy on fuel, spares expensive, & had to return it to the dealers 4 times in those 2 years for tracking, steering & other faults none really minor, Mercs, I salivate about them!, when I go back to where I bought both the Passat & the Audi, I linger by the Mercs, the sales guy I know came over & said watch, pressed a button, & what was an open car, became a steel-roofed saloon, I just stood there, my face hanging out, dribbling a little, it also had "soft-close" doors, trunk & hood, where they close, then draw in tight, without a sound, it was 58,000, around $112,000,....yeeehah!!

Audi's are nice cars. I liike the fact that they have all wheel drive, not sure if all of them do or not but I think they do. I also like how they have a wide price range, they have decent priced models all the way up to super pricey ones. I went to an autoshow two weeks back and they had some audi's there and I was amazed what one of them had, I think it was an S6 or something but it was like 100 thousand dollars USD, might have been the one you were talking about. It was really nice though, had everything you could ever dream of and more!

Don't forget the pain and heartbreak when you get it scratched or into an accident. Or the bill from the mechanic.

Mine, the 2005 model A4, is the highest of the mid-range at 19,500 [$37,400], they start with the A3, around 14,000 [$27,000] the 2006 model was re-vamped, slightly larger than mine, big increase, at 27,000 [$52,000], then they start going up steeper, all [4x4's,] starting at 44,000 [$85000], up to 54,000 [$104,000, expensive but I wouldn't buy anything else!
Um, unless they give them different designates where you are, the S6 is a Merc isn't it?....by the way d'you know why "Mercedes Benz"? Benz named them after his daughter, Mercedes.
