Which is why I picked up a 6MT...with that said, I am now replacing my clutch after driving 139,000+ on my OEM clutch.

Sorry you had a poor experience with the s85. Many of us long time owners have had the opposite experience.

Scared owners of s85s make poor (pun intended) owners of s85s, as you inherited the problems of your previous owner.

Bet he is back in a BMW in 6 months, Audis are such boring *** cars to drive! Why not get a V8 M6 instead or are the RS' cheaper over there?

For warranty purposes, all modification talked about on my M6 is for role play only. My M6 is currently 100% stock and the mods I am referring to are from a friends M6 i'm posting about. Thanks

If it’s a daily driver I’d say you made the right choice.

If you want reliability then yeah, let someone with different interests take the M6 off your hands. Camry's are nice too, maybe get a Honda, I hear they're nice a reliable.

Why Audi, I would have thought an F10 or F12 M car would be more an improvement in preformance?

You will regret it, I did the same with an RS6, good torque but pretty characterless. Went back to the V10, but now moving to the M5 F10.....see other thread.

My M6 has been a dream, just had to buy it off of someone who blew the engine and transmission already. I can't imagine going through what he went through. Good luck

This engine should have never been built.
You want us to convince you to keep your M6 after this post?
When did Kia made a 500HP race-bred V10?
Plus, you seem to be missing the relationship between performance and reliability. And if you think Audi is a reliable car, then you are in for a rude awakening.
