It's hilarious that some people can't see through the facade of the roundel and keep chugging their kool-aid.
AU. I frequently follow your posts and you are obviously knowledgeable about cars, especially Audi and BMW. Maybe I am misinterpreting things, but I get the distinct impression you don't think highly of BMWs. Yet you seem to own one. Or do you just dislike the F10? If that is the case, why do you spend so much time in an F10 forum. Of course it is your prerogative. Just curious.

While I have a new found respect for BMW, after attending their performance driving school, their option packages are excessive.
I just retired my 2006 RL and waiting to take delivery on a 2013 550i, M-Spt, DH Pkg. It's not even close, they are two different cars. The RL on the interior is nicely equipped but BMW has come a long way and has become very competitive in that department. Aside from the BMW being a tank, the performance is pure balls out head and shoulders above Acura. That alone is worth the difference in price. Two different cars my friend, two different cars...

Looks like we made another AU thread.
These are not about nice cars.
These threads are allways compairing non compairable items, most times ending in throwing bad remarks from and to nice people.
And as long the maybe beatifull 3 litre VAG engine in any Audi is to much forward in the car, because the platform is intended for a FWD car.....

Just forget about it.

Remember AU never sees the front of any Audi, he is always trailing his beloved A6 in the X5 tractor, wearing very dark sunglasses too.
So we will not blame him for not disliking the ugly Audi front.

As for me I choose a Porsche or a Volkswagen over any Audi for the same amount of money.

These four ringer grills they are that ugly, that after being confronted with that all these Audi buyers take the rest of the Audi car design for granted, and wearing sunglasses, it helps.

^ If the diesel in my X5 makes it a tractor, does that mean your F11 is also a tractor station wagon (by your pathetic logic, of course)?

I think it is time to lock this crap up. It has been ruined by blind kool-aid drinkers.

Not me... The girl in the internet chatroom said she'd love me if I got one.

All I have to say is that dont knock it until you own one for a while. I had a C7 A6 for a year and my 535xi has nothing over the A6 performace wise.

Xmen you are full of useless opinions... by my count over 1100 of them.Some of these items can not be proved. Obviously you are incapable of being internalizing information and coming to intelligent thoughts to post.

That comment was meant for that poster, since they actually do make good points without insulting.

Seriously if you love Audi so much - go post on their forum. I can appreciate the differences, and as I have stated would love to have an S5, but can not afford it. I prefer the 535 to the A6 - and obviously so do a lot of people on this forum.

As for the A6 and I don't know the specific numbers, so it may be true (I am big enough to admit that I don't know) As for total sales, BMW has not lost to Audi in US sales or worldwide sales in 5+ years based on an annual basis. And since you have trouble understanding "Annual sales" defines a calendar year Jan-Dec which is how the automotive industry calculates it.

We will see where they are at the end of the the year.

BTW - you are comparing an newly update A6 to a car in its 3rd year of cycle... No mention of that huh. Enjoy your A6 and stop bothering people on the F10 forum...
