Enclosed are some pics of my new 3.2. Some people had asked for more photos.

Any issues or comments at this point since you've been living with the car for a week or so?

judging from the first picture...no one can tell me that the new A6 does not resemble a VW Passat - id rather have what chris bangle did to bmw, then whatever is going on at Audi, the new A4 looks disappointing IMO
Audi S5 TC

Chris Bangle and Adrian Van Hooydonk suck ass. Walter DeSilva is much more talented. FWIW, the new A6 looks nothing like a VW Passat. If you think so, you either have very poor eyesight, a lousy eye for detail, are not too smart, any two of these three or all three of these.

I wish I could get the TDI.

Its the Oyster Gray. Has a purple hue on darker days or in the dark. Looks more charcoal gray in the bright sun.
The wheels are 17".
I have no complaints about the car. I'm loving it! I've been playing with the sport mode and the tip and am really impressed with the PEP this little V6 can muster. Everytime I get in the car, I am more and more pleased with the interior. Seats feel great and the Bose system is better than home.

I thought that the car looked like a VW Passat or Phaeton from that angle at first glance.
I guess that explains my user name.

on both counts, but the wheels particularly. Plus the side styling is just, well, odd to say the least. Could Audi have made this car any more bland? I'm glad they didn't make a total mess of it like BMW, but they did seem to remove any semblance of character from the car.
After seeing the preview pics of the C6, I immediately ran out and found a C5 4.2 before they were all gone.

it's not worse than what Bangle has done to BMW, simply because most people would rather drive a 4 cylinder Passat than be caught driving around in one of Bangle's clown cars.
