• I've owned a lot of Audis. In fact, I have an A6 Avant in the garage right now. I even had a C5 S6 Avant before this one. I live where it snows, and quattro is unbeatable in the white stuff. But, while I love the *idea* of a Lambo-powered S6, the *reality* of a Lambo-powered S6 with over 100K miles scares the crap out of me. The lower-mileage manual S4 may be a safer play, but as noted, the repairs will come. And they will be expensive.

  • Does the E60 M5 not count as a luxury car? Because it's V10 powered, and a sedan of course. They are pretty luxurious in the context of their time (released in 2005).

    • My exact thoughts when I read the post. My conclusion was that the Bimmer was/is a true near-exotic/near-super car sedan as opposed to luxury. My neighbor bought one used for his wife and needed that big v10 motor replaced-yes, replaced-at 50k miles to the tune of $18k. It took some fighting but BMW swallowed the pill and paid up.

    • The E60 M5 does not count because I totally forgot about it when I wrote the post. I am in the process of getting the E60M5 wikipedia article deleted. If I can't remember it, it never existed. Same with the 100 years war.
