    So I have the option of switching to the M6 and getting the car this year. I was told by somebody at corporate that if I want to continue to wait for the A8, my order will carry over. I was then advised that I can have the same issues this year as far as wait time though due to dealer not having allocations. So I could be waiting 2016 for nothing and still get stuck without a cat! Only because corporate wants to punish dealers for poor sales I guess.

    I wanted the A8 so that I can just jump in the car and enjoy the ride without changing gears but just cruising. I plan on keeping this car forever so I think auto would be perfect for my senior years. However, I have driven stick for past 13 years or so and really don't object to it much. Just having the convenience of an auto would be great!

    Do I roll the dice and wait for the 16 or just grab the manual???

    Thanx!

    What about settling for something you didn't order... and have it eat at you for the entire ownership

    I actually don't mind waiting for the 2016 but she made it sound like it is possible I can get passed up again...I guess which is!

    or maybe look for one at a fair ADM on the lot somewhere. We never know what the year end can bring. I say go for what you really really want.

    The M6 clutch is VERY stiff. If you're at all concerne about older age. You won't want the M6

    I haven't been offered to switch yet... my dealer already knows up front I won't take an M6... but if they were to try and offer it... I'd still hold out.

    I love my A8 , sometimes I think it would be nice to shift a little and to feel that power in the shifter.
