First off, thanks to all the forum for helping me throughout the year in deciding what options, who to deal with and what to watch out for. Pete & Sue, Bruce, Dion and Decker thanks for the individual help and emails. April, thank you so much for your offers and input also. Had I lived in CA I would have done this with you but taxes and Uncle Sam did come into play... Ivan at UA in Seattle was great to work with. OK now for the order... (drum roll please)..
Ebony Pearl/Tungsten gray(advance interior), premium pax, cold wx pax, preferred lux pax, sport pax, guidance pax. I skipped on the shades, phone and Bose. Delivery is in December, before XMAS. My OAO is thrilled... I'm feelin pretty good too... Now if I can only wait w/o going bonkers...
After delivery, I get to do the short shift, 17", chip, CD rack and tinted glass...
Well Doug, Congratulations on your new prize posession. Hard to make all those decisions isn't it, and nice to have the help of those who have gone thru it. You must have a very understanding and loving wife to let you make such a decision. I hope the waiting time goes by quickly so we... I mean you can add all those extras and go cruzin.. Enjoy and safe driving..
By the way, I too would like to thank you all for helping Doug and myself these past few months.. He's my better half and I too am very excited about the new A6 in our life, Lord knows the '84 Audi sure earned it's keep with us. Thankyou, Lea

I spoke with the person who organized the S6 AVUS wheel group purchase, and he said he is seriously considering doing it again, so that's something to consider while you wait. By the way, your T-Bird looks great! I grew up with a neighbor who bought nothing but T-Birds (kinda like us Audi-freaks). I would like to talk to you sometime about paint care.
The CD-player is easy to install, and my UUC short-shifter goes in soon. Who knows, I might even have my windows tinted by the time you get your car! Bilstein says their sport-shocks might be available 'bout your delivery-time...give us something to compare.
See you at a quattro-club event soon...maybe our winter driving clinic?<p>Peter R Dieckerhoff

Although I don't quite yet have my A6 (will do the deed at the end of the month), I'm very interested in getting in on the AVUS wheels group purchase. Is anyone puttin' a list together?

If you don't mind me asking, how much over invoice did you pay?
