Thanks for your input guys... some of you are missing the point here i feel - my requirments are to replace nearly all if not all of my cars - so a 'normal' 4x4 simply does not fit the bill, Rangie's, Landcruisers etc. are not options.
A powerfull (as fast as poss.) 4x4 estate is what i need.
I think Phil has hit the nail on the head when he said a serious downpoint of Volvo's is their depreciation - a £27k car worth £3k a few years down the line... that's the kind of car i want...over a £20k discount!!! Having looked into it i can't get so much for my money with an Audi.
Tappy if you really are going to buy a A6 Quattro estate 2.8t then i think i'll get the AWD T5 and then we can compair directly
. Alternatively (and more likely
) is letting you buy the Audi, me buying another 280bhp MR2 turbo and simply stealing the Audi all the time
Kevin, i havent forgotten you, i'll try and call tommorow, but all is in hand.
Thanks again guys, keep the comments coming but remember a "real" 4x4 is not what i am looking for here
