    I don't know if I would do that. I love the 8 speed, it is by far the best transmission in any car I have ever owned. I wouldn't trade it for a 6 speed.

    That would be like taking your 21st century rocket-ship and trading it for a depression era Model-T. (No offense to the model-T crowd.)

    You'd be 1 of few that went that route. I traded my M6 in on an A8. Very happy i did.

    I would stick with the a8. I own a m6 and wanted to trade for a a8 just haven't done it because I would be losing over 10k after owning it only for 7 months and 2300 miles on it.

    1/2 a second is if you are on 1/4 drag strip..city driving ripping around your 1/2 second means nothing..Cause you aren't doing 125mph on the street..I think the OP said just city..Fun is going through gears imo
