BNW is discovering that is x6 is a flop here. Thoughts perhaps of reintroducing the 5 series wagon perhaps.

Hasn't Volvo announced the end of the wagon?

Something smaller than a 5-series Gran Turismo would be nice. Let's call it a 4-series GT. I'll have mine as an AWD x35d. KTHXBAI.

Somebody snuck one in to America, a B7 anyway. All it took was a buddy at the DMV in NYC. No affiliation on my part, just cross posting from audizine.

If he got it in for under $2000, then it was something under the table. I can't believe any other way.

Be that as it may, if it has a legal title from any state, I believe he can register it in any other. I believe even California will allow a used car that has been registered for a minimum amount of time (6 mo I believe) to be registered even without the required CA emission package.

It is much better looking than most Audis. There is a bling factor on many of the others that is off-putting. This seems to radiate class more than anything (besides power)

It's always 1er that wags these things in front of us

The problem is, federal law trumps state law in this case.

If it came into the country illegally, Customs and Border Protection can seize it and have it crushed, even after the fact.

We only get 225 hp on our V6 TDI, due to being choked by emissions equipment. And, the thing would end up costing a lot more due to the cost of that equipment.

Are you sure it would be "a lot more"? The SCR/urea "clean diesel" system is a 925€ option on European-spec A6 3.0 TDIs, it's not available for the 313hp one though. I'd be very surprised if it was different from the US-spec system, maybe the US-spec system needs a little bit reduced power to reach the tougher emissions standard.

The 3.0 TDI quattro "clean diesel" is still cheaper than the front-wheel-drive 4-cylinder hybrid.

Here's the Avant price list:

Well, let's look at the Q7...

3.0T Premium is $46,250, 3.0T Premium Plus is $52,550, 3.0T S-line Prestige (more power) is $59,950.

TDI Premium is $51,450, TDI Premium Plus is $57,750, TDI Prestige is $63,950 (less of a premium, but you also don't get S-line).

So, a consistent $5200 premium for the diesel over the 3.0T except in the Prestige trim level (where the diesel gets less, and only has a $4000 premium).

The main point is, we won't get it in the US, but it is nice to dream!
