    Default 2013 Audi S6 - After a week of ownership....- Long Read.

    What's up yall. Back at it again with a new ride in the stable. I have to admit, I feel like I have been becoming a brand loyal son of a b*tch lately. Audi is really stepping their game up in terms of design and engineering.

    Car's I considered as a DD before getting this, 13 CLS63 - 13 M6..I could have gotten the CLS for a steal, but I am seeing a lot of them running around here in NY. The M6 is still amazing, but it's way more $$ than the S6.

    S6...$80k sticker. Only things I didn't get were the Heads up display/Night Vision and B&O system. Those options roughly would have brought the car up to 90k. I leased this car for 2400 out of pocket and 1079/month. Taxes in.

    Motor - 4.0 L Twin Turbo 8 making 420hp/400tq.

    The interior fit and finish is a 10. Amazing quality buttons/leather and plastic pieces. Even though the car doesn't have the full leather package on the dash and doors - the material still feels solid and doesn't look cheap. Comes stock with the Diamond Stitched seats and Carbon Trim.

    The transmission is a 7speed, shift paddle/auto Dual Clutch. I have never seen a car shift this fast. Even driving the car in the comfort mode (audi mmi allows you to pick the driving characteristics i.e. differential, suspension, transmission, exhaust and etc.) The tach just looks like a quick blur. Driving this car in Dynamic mode (essentially the sportiest) - the air suspension lowers, the exhaust note growls, seat belts auto tighten, transmission is super aggressive - I almost feel like when driving, I need to look down at what gear it's in because it shifts that fast.

    Some things I don't like - the stock exhaust has a nice purr - But needs more growl behind it. It's a big car and with the 20" stock wheels - it rides amazing. BUT I can see that I will need to tighten the suspension up in the future. A LITTLE sloppy when really pounding it.

    Mods in store - Suspension Module/ECU Flash/Downpipes/Exhaust - Wheels. Done. Since it's going to be my DD..I want it to still be able to handle the every day beatings.

    It's going to get a full detail from our forum sponsor Dave @Street Dreams on Tuesday. Right now the car has 0 Wax on it. Just a regular wash.

    Best bang for the buck car, I would either go with the S6 or M5, both equally impressive with the Audi being more practical and efficient.

    I thought about the M5 as well. But I wanted to try this out for now till BMW gets their ish str8. Figure'd I save a maybe 5-600 a month as well by getting the Audi.

    Is it fully automatic or can you shift with paddles on the steering wheel? Car looks great. I like the color you picked.

    You can shift with the paddles on the wheel OR keep it fully automatic. Has a couple driving modes.

    I can't wait to see what kind of numbers APR and the other tuning companies come out with for the 4.0T - should be interesting.

    the lease price isn't too bad considering the cost of the car (especially with the down payment).

    I always felt like they took a step back with the design but the engine in the car is definitely adequite. Amazingly i think it won a shootout againt the M5 and E63 despite being severely underpowered. Great car
