Find of the Day: 2003 Audi S6 Avant

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="68956"] words: Bill, photos: Chris Mangold What is it about wagons that have gripped enthusiasts but not the general auto-buying population?

Stuffing V8s into wagons has been around for years but Audi seem to have hit the sweet spot with the C5 S6 Avant. That fabulous 4.2 growl and ta...

Spy Photo: B10 Audi A4 Avant
