As stated in article Audi with AWD beats any competition on slippery surface.
I drive 4-Matic as a daily driver and even in snow-free CA it gives me lot of confidence.
So once again, do they have any job openings at MB, where you can surf the net on company time?
Yeah, I agree w/ the AWD statement and glad you drive a 4-Matic. In my household, at least one of our cars has to be AWD. I don't hit Reno/Tahoe often, but in rainy weather, I feel very confident in my S4 when the wifey and I have to drive long distances.

A new RS6 is still in the works, but not out yet. So, you're right that they're not in this league of super-sedans, but that's because they're a few years old.

As for all their cars looking the same, hey we all have our own opinions. But I disagree. I will say this, I like my current B6 S4 vs. the new B7 S4 out their w/ their fish-mouth grill and Civic-like taillights. Yet, it's starting to grow on me lately.
Ur a shame, ur wife drives a faster car then u :P

Coupes-go M6 or Z4M vs. the 63. The Audi and te M5 were much more closly matched.
Huh??? E63 is not a coupe!

He must have it deleted! His profile shown he owned a 325i, no wonder.

I didn't know you could delete a post!
