You haven't talked much about your requirements or the budget so i cannot really recommend anything other than warn you about debt inducing servicing.
Well the rs6 was listed at 27500 so im thinking i could get it to 24500 or 24000, especially with the econ how it is. I paid 23,000 for my 330 about 5 months ago and got a pretty good deal, so im hoping i could pretty much do an even trade (I might have to spend an extra 1000 or so depending on what i can get for my car and what i can get the rs6 to). In terms of maintenance on the 330, i have the warranty which i really like the security of, and also because i dont really have the money to pay for and of the $$$ maintenance problems that go along with german cars (Im still in school and dont have a job). I basically want a car that performs as well as possible while still looking decent and being practical enough to go skiing with (i have a rack on my 330) and take people in. Both seem to fit those parameters, which is why im having trouble deciding
