    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    1999 ws.6 A4

    i'm looking at a very well priced 1999 a4 ws.6. Can you guys tell me any inherent problems with these cars. It's coming with drilled/slotted rotors new pads and a Loud Mouth exhaust. I just read the sticky of differences through the years; let me know if there's anything I should be aware of, as i'm coming from a 2000 m6

    Automatic boredom. If you really liked shifting you'll miss it.

    nothing wrong with A4, just move the shift points with a pro tune then
    just stall it later on too if you really want to make best use if it. I would choose A4 built up and stalled over M6 any time even on the street. I am armed at 3200rpm at all time, noice.

    Yeah, but if you like to shift gears and use a clutch you miss the action.

    I guess what people mean is that they are a little boring to drive. All you do is hit the gas and go. With an M6 you are in control of what the tranny is doing.

    A4 done well is not boring just easier to drive. Not sure I would have fun shifting all the time in traffic and stuff.

    If it's a car no matter how the auto is done it's boring. I'd even get bored if I had a Viper with an auto. I'd only get one if it was for track only. I don't mind traffic. With the power there isn't much need to shift alot.

    I'd rather lose a street race once than be bored most of the time.

    I find M6 unecessary and boring if you have a good built A4.
