I still say S6 is between 550i and M5
I just dont feel that 550i offers the same performance and tech as S6
S6 has air suspension in all 4 corners. I can raise clearance of the car by 2-3 inches when going trough deep snow, etc.
All it takes is one click to get to the height of small SUV
S6 has dual-clutch tranny, which i found to be a lot quicker than AT, especially on sudden downshifts when situation calls for it
S6 has vectoring rear diff and good quattro system
It's more nimble/agile than 550i
Feels a lot more lighter/smaller on its feet
The S6 is definitely a better value. It costs the same as the 550i xdrive with M-Sport and Dynamic Handling but you get a lot more car for the money. Things like torque vectoring, a torsen-based mechanical AWD system, adjustable air suspension and dual clutch transmission are not even optional on the 550i, yet come standard on the S6.
