I don't know if a lack of a manual would bother me; it's a +4,200lb luxury car. A very fast luxury car, but a luxury car, nonetheless. What would bother me, in all honesty, is the prospect of its reliability (or its lack thereof) after the warranty is over. This isn't necessarily a concern for those who prefer to buy new cars every few years, but, for someone like myself, relative long-term reliability weighs heavily into the purchasing decision. I'm an old guy and have owned German cars most of my driving life, but not lately. Just can't get past the reliability aspect.

What's your issue with assuming that the CTS-V is what we all "fap" to? I think it's a kick ass ride, but it's not the be-all-end-all that YOU are making it out to be. If this weren't an audi being chastised here, would you be so bent out of shape?

Oh please, TCL loves the CTS-V... or anything LSx powered... it's the gold standard in hereWhat's your issue with assuming that the CTS-V is what we all "fap" to?

It's a nice car don't get me wrong.. but as you can see the S6 is no slower then the CTS-V or E63
And you have it wrong, I'm not defending the Audi (it doesn't need defending as it's numbers IMO are right on point). I was just pointing out a typical TCL useless post when it's obviously wrong "only fast in first gear"
I would have done the same in any other thread

Going to Summit Point? Free coffee for TCL-ers at my wife's french bakery on 21 E Boscawen St. Winchester VA. Just say you're from TCL and Chase sent you.
I highly doubt most owners would ever take this past 115mph, so even if it loses steam up top, it's still fast enough where it counts to destroy almost anything on the road
