My personal opinion on the V6 engine is its crap, the 2.8 is supposed to be much better than the 2.6 tho. A poor mans S2 but rarer than an S2.
If its anything like my 2.6 Coupe you will find it very hard to sell, unless its very cheap. if it was a 2.0E 8 or 16v you could sell it easier. As soon as you say 2.6/2.8 it puts people off.

Thats a better car If its a 20v get it bought, a 10v is a not quite as good (bit under powered) but it still has a 5 cylinder engine

Any reason why you say the V6 is crap other than its hard to sell?

The v6 isn't crap !

2.6 felt good even with it's 150bhp in our old 80 q avant, smooth but pulled good when prompted. The 2.8 30v in the wifes a4 q avant is silky compared to the 2.6 and very deceptive ! 192bhp not to be sniffed at, hustles you up to speed before you even know it's happened.
Not for everyone this spendy boost power.

the v6 is crap if you want an engine to tune unless its got a couple of turbo's strapped to it and even then I would opt for 20vt any day

The v6 does not pull like a 20v 5 pot have driven both and the 20v is just far more of a drivers car ,don't get me wrong when on the motorway the v6 is a good cruising car ,but the 20v just has it .If it was my money and there was a choice 20v or 20vt always .

There is no denying that the 20vT is a wonderful engine that's why one is going in my cabby Quattro but that doesn't automatically mean the V6 is a dog. I have both 2.6 and a 2.8 cabby an I think the V6 suits a cabby very well.
