Test drove 2011 1SS CGM 6M today

I like my A6 Black Beauty, but I always liked the sound of a manual transmission with a performance exhaust (sounded like one).

I've seen a lot of threads on trade ups for newer models from 2010 to 2011.
Is it worth it to take a hit and get the 2011? There are more color choices this time around such as IOM, IBM and CGM which has been a favorite color of mine since first siting. I bought the A6 out of daily traffic on the infamous 405 here in the San Fernando Valley in CA, would I need to replace the clutch on an M6 every year or so? or just get a sore knee.

Is it worth it haggle with the local dealer on the trade in?

Or, shall I keep the Black Bee and add a performance exhaust and call it good.

you would take a pretty good hit if all you want is a manual and a better exhaust (which you could get w/ the one you have now).

i traded from a '10 to a '11 but i went from a v6 to v8....options wise, i like the HUD and a couple other things the '10 didnt have but i say its not worth it for you...get a solid exhuast and deal with the auto

Specialy if your driving that dreaded 405 everyday, either replace clutch every year or get a gym membership build your knee up.. LoL

Delete the resonators or tune out the AFM and get any aftermaket exhaust

For me, it wouldn't be worth it unless there are features you must have such as HUD, or the 2012s dash covering to consider trading. The money I'd lose would convince me to mod the A6
