Question Think this is a good trade?

A guy i know recentley got a 1998 Audi A6 from an insurance setlement. His cousin has a 1995 M3 and wanted to trade for the A6. First of all what numbers does the A6 put out? And he was talking to me about trading it, i was telling him that if it was a true M3 that it was a wicked trade. But then his dad stepped in and said no cause he liked the Audi more. I heard that and i was like WTF? An M3 for an Audi A6 seems like a damm good deal to me. What do u guys think?

The Audi A6 has 40 less HP and 450 more LBS, and as previously stated..... its an audi! i would deff go with the M3.

In all honesty it all depends on the condition of both cars...

Now if BOTH Audi and M are in great shape, I'd go with the M3

^^I agree. If the cars are in similar condition it's a good trade. But if they really want to do it, I would check the value of both cars on Kelly Blue Book, and make the trade for the car plus the cash difference.

His Dad is afraid of the BMW=performance vs the Audi =luxo sled. His Dad would probably say the same if it was BMW vs Lexus. I'm not saying the Audi doesn't have balls, but they really don't promote it publicly. Let his Dad watch a few races on Speed TV - then see what he says.
