I was amazed to see a multi-page pull-out brochure of the new A6 featured in the current issue of Vogue. Interestingly enough, the first page of this brochure shows a photograph of the 4.2 engine! Perfect, now if I can only meet the woman that appreciates style, is well-dressed and well-spoken, and appreciates fine German engineering. Oh well, the hunt will just need to continue!

Probably because of the demographics of the Vogue reader (particularly age and HH income).
The only reason I'm about to buy a A6 4.2 is because my wife suggested we check out Audi. I didn't even know they had the new A6 coming out.

I have seen other A6 advertisements in other magazines, notably the December issue of Atlantic Monthly, but none were as well-crafted and extensive as the one found in Vogue. As a single male I am surprised to learn that your wife plays an integral part of your car buying experience. I do not mean that one should not discuss high-ticket item purchases with a significant other. Instead I am more surprised to learn that your wife would bring to your attention the new A6! Many of the women I know 1) do not follow new automobile introductions and 2) prefer many other cars to most German machinery--something to do with ride characteristics and hence the appeal of Honda, Toyota and Lexus.

In my case, my wife knew that AWD was a must, and knew that Audi offered AWD. She had no clue there was a new A6 being introduced (and neither did I!).

My wife is pushing me towards Audi, and away from Acura, as well. She sees too much Honda Accord in the new RL.
Not that I'm putting up much of a fight (current cars: 1998 A4 2.8 Quattro, 2005 A4 3.0 Quattro Cabriolet; previous car: 1999 A4 2.8 Quattro).
