Thoughts on A4 Quattro V6 (any gen)? I've had A4 Q 1.8t and want to maybe give the V6 a try (don't like turbo lag). I know that they are thirsty for fuel, are they quick and sporty enough for daily driving?

Are they any more expensive to maintain than other typical German sport sedans?

Which gen is the most reliable? I heard the 2.8 from the B5 is bulletproof, how about the other gens? Is the FSI V6 (B7) reliable?

Thanks.

The V6 is smoother, but really the 1.8/2.0 are more sporty engines. The V6's are pretty reliable, known for some annoying oil leaks but nothing catastrophic.

Don't expect it to be more fun/faster than the 1.8 though, and the 2.0 is definitely funnerer.

The B5 2.8L is said to be bulletproof. The 3.0 on the B6s seem to be not as much. I have driven both and do like how smooth they are. Like Evan said, the 1.8t / 2.0t is going to be more fun.

My B8.5 V6 3.0T TFSI is fun
