    For the experts...whats up with 2018 S6 pricing, I see some listed at $104,000

    What gives? I see the maxed out price of a 2018 S6 on Audiusa is about 86k, but there are multiple listings for much more. $104,000, $99,700, $96.500, etc etc.

    And there are more than 500 listed on auto trader.

    16 of them are more than 90k.....

    I don't think its a "rare" car.

    Maybe just standard markup so they can "lower" the price and give the buyer a "deal"...areas could be tougher to obtain that specific version too.

    Careful.... lol A number of us are still C5 RS6 owners....
    '02 S6 Avant Silver - Pokey | Carbon Black/Ebony RS6 w/ stuff - darn quick | '03 Daytona Grey/Ebony RS6 w/ more stuff - quicker yet | '91 NSX CDN issue with 6spd & BBSC - quicker yet and then some | '87 Buick GNX OEM clone w/ lots of stuff - quickest hands down

    Maintaining a beloved rare car full of memories is not the same as spending 20 grand over sticker for a VERY common car! And with over 500 on Autotrader, the 2018 S6 is far from rare!


    It is the 'stupid marginally rich' who keep mending this GD money pit car....running great, but friggen battery warning bleeps in my face....and I cannot see the A/c controls at night, dam it......spring project (when I don't need the winter wheels) SPEND MORE MONEY on this money pit!

    LOL

    I don't think many on this site spend over sticker price on any car!

    Just have to say this was my path, and while I bounce back and forth driving the RS6 and the S6, the S6 is a damn nice ride. But you cannot compare the interior features of the two cars, as 12 years made quite the difference here. Almost decadent in the S6 with seat massages! The S6 is the perfect highway cruiser but a radar detector is highly recommended, as speed develops quietly and quickly.
    First RS6 totaled at 142K. Now donor for S6 Avant project. Daily driver: Sepang Blue 2016 S6. Black optics, sport package. #2 Black on Black, Level 10 and Koni, Eclipse Nav + Sirius, 034 Motorsports ECU and TCU tune.

    Yes, I have drive the new S6. I had a 2013 A8L for a three year lease, it was very nice with those before mentioned massage seats! LOL.
