As an Audi collector, I would say that the model line-up for 2003 is Audi's best in recent history. I've owned all "S" models of that generation and currently own the C5 S6 and the MkI TT 225 of the same year. I would describe the S6 as the "Elegant Work-Beast" of the line-up. It does indeed, snugly fit between the S4 Avant & S8. It is as fast as both but not as agile as either. It has the weight & power of the S8 but a more narrow stance (cornering suffers). With that said~ I beleive that the S6 will be the ultimate collector of that generation (US spec only), even above the RS6, due to limited production & wagon-only status. In my opinion~ the RS6 is a beast of a car and I do respect it for what it is... but it was conceived for the US market in dollar-signs and marketing only. The RS4 was much more appropriate in driving dynamics (faster around the track). Even the A/S8 model is more appropriate for an RS version than the RS6. But the S6 is powered perfectly for it's stance. And is indeed the Ultimate Wagon of it's time.
