You may very well be right. I think in both places they tend to sell the 3 series and A4 the most but I don't doubt what you are saying. Also the A6 has the benefit of having been redesigned which always give them a bump in sales. I like the A6 exterior, but prefer the BMW interior.

BTW - I wanted an S5 but the Audi residuals are so bad (or not subsidized) that it took it out of my price range. Also their ED department wanted the VAR taxes for the car ahead of delivery and then would refund. Gave me an uneasy feeling and decided against it.

Anyway - see you on another thread...
