2007 Audi A6 3.2L, Part Three

Illustration for article titled 2007 Audi A6 3.2L, Part Three

Why you should buy this car:
Buy this car if you want a large luxury sedan with impeccable fit and finish, cool toys and one of the smoothest powertrains you'll ever have the pleasure of piloting. When you order one, be very careful picking your color and wheels. There's a tan A6 with the base model wheels around where I live and it looks terrible. It was hard to believe we were driving the same car at first. The phantom black pearl effect paint job is the cream of the crop. Silver and Night Blue Pearl effect work pretty well too. For wheels, make sure you cough up another grand or so for the optional 18, or 19, inchers.

Why you shouldn't buy this car:
If you want a big, luxury sedan that can do 155 MPH or more, this is not the car for you. If you want a car that looks like its going 155 MPH while sitting still, this is not the car for you. Buyers looking for those things would be settling for the V6 model. Don't settle. Just sell a few more shares of your Apple stock and get the S6 or the BMW M5.

@rkwadd: Marketing and competitive pricing

can often overcome the fact that a product is crap. Just look at the

original Ford Pinto. That car is before my time... but from what I've

heard, it was the car that nobody liked, but everyone bought. Or the

Chevette... crap compared to the Civic, Corolla, Sentra, 323 or Subaru

from the same period - especially by the mid 1980s... but many bought

it 'cause it was cheap. And look at all the people who buy Windows
