GTI OUT, Avant IN
« on: February 27, 2006, 08:34:26 PM »
Sold the GTI this weekend and bought an A6 Avant.


Now Jeska has a car of her own to haul our dogs around in.

We debadge it Sunday. Today we dropped it off for 20% window tint. Will clear corner it sometime soon. Not sure what else is coming. Need towers for the Yakima rack, rear cargo mat, wire-tunes for the ipod, etc etc.

Car is a 1999 with every option available in that year. (summer and winter package etc.) Should be fun for her (and more work for me)


Here is a bad camera phone picture.

Awesome Cole! I know when we cahtted on Friday you were both pretty bummed about the difficulty selling the GTI.  Great choice in a new ride as well. The A6 will always hold a special place in my heart, mainly because I miss mine terribly.

very nice indeed.

So can't wait for the wife to give me the go ahead to trade the A6 in. Either an A4 avante or Passat wagon, as I see the new ones are out now. Not sure. Gotta go take a look.

In any case. Congrats, she's a beuty

Congratulations Cole, it looks great.  My wife can't decide if she would prefer an A6 Avant or the Allroad.  I think she is leaning towards an Allroad, but who the heck knows when I will be ready to pay for it!

Let us know how she comes along.
