I saw two brand new RS6s this weekend at an Audi Tech Session. One was bone stock and the other had 19in BBS LMs and some kind of chip that gave it 5xx hp (WOW). They really look great in person and the sound makes the hair on your neck stand up! Its a shame they don't come in 6spds though. :cry:

VW doesn't have a 6sp in their parts bin to take that power.

Thats what the guy at the dealership told me, its a shame they can't mate it with the R8's running gear. :o

that would be a hell of an expensive proposition.

even so, i don't think they'd sell that many with a stick shift. half the people who buy that car get it as an icon.

Yeah I agree with you on that one, the guy with stock RS6 did not want the optional sport exhaust system because it was "too loud." As it turns out the guy with the modified RS6 didn't like his sport exhaust because the tips were black so he was buying some sort of aftermarket kit for it.

merc isn't offering a manual on the AMGs either.l

automatic E36 M3s outsold manaul ones. Doesn't that kill ya.

it's sad. these cars aren't cruisers, they are a fighter jet bred with a barge.

Just think how many people get turned off by not having a manual option and buy a different car

what different car?

the M5 is the only car in the segment offering a stick. Isn't that sad?

It always comes down to what the core buyer is going to opt for. Mercedes has been razzed for ages for not having an available manual on the AMG cars. They would have put one in a long time ago if they thought it was worth the trouble.

I think they just know their place. If people want to make love too their car, they will get a BMW or something. If they want torquey power, rock solid engineering, and fantastic cruise, they will get a Mercedes.

mercs are torquey, strong, and effortlessly fast. BMW are fighters, athletic, and connect themselves to you intimately.

right now I love the M cars. when i get old, i'm sure the AMG cars will be a much more comfortable fast.

Speaking of Mercedes, am I the only one who finds their door handles cheap feeling and really stiff? Even on a decked out S-Class. Thats' why I don't think they should ever cheap out with plastic door handles, it's the one part on the outer body the driver feels the most. A good metal fixture not only feels higher quality, but it is.

I thought they were always plastic.

I don't know about Mercedes, but the door pulls on the BMW 7-Series used to be metal. If Mercedes has been plastic for a long time, then they didn't always feel so cheap.
