Default Any regrets moving from C6 to C7?

I use my 2012 C6 as my daily driver, best decision I made after owning a few garage queens. You only live once and life is short, besides I live in Paradise. I realized why I can't seem to pull the trigger on a C7, is that I still enjoy/love my C6. So the question is for prior C6 owners:

Would you do it again (i.e. move from C6 to C7)?

I should have searched before posting this thread, found others with the same dilema. Let this thread die, no need to post.

C6 to C7?

the only thing was not being able to keep my 2010 GS JSB. I bought it new from your country in the USA. My wife didn't want to sell "her car with the 4 round and red lights", I ignored her opinion and today, she loves her C7, while regretting like me that she couldn't keep her C6...

I hope this will help you...:à votre santé:

No regrets. I loved my C6 but the minute I parked my C7 next to my C6...it hit me how much the C6 has aged and how much better I enjoyed the ride and amenities of the C7. Haven't looked back since.

Fair to say most don't regret the switch. But it's hard to sell a car you love.

C7 is 10 times better. I doubt anyone has regrets here.

No reason to beat yourself up. 99% of the C7 posts are redundant, from vendors, or both. The other 1% are simply silly.

I really enjoyed my C6, and thought I would miss the car. But, I don't. The C7 is leaps, and bounds ahead. I assure you, you will not be disappointed.

From this



to this......well I did bring a little of the C6 with me.

I never thought I would love a car so much more than my C6Z but my C7 is just so much better. Anyone who says other is just in straight denial.

Man, what's taking you so long?! There's night and day difference between the two. Once you get in a C7, you'll wonder why you waited so long !!

Yes, in a heart beat. And if I had waited this long, I’d probably kick myself for not doing it sooner. It’s a car, not a puppy. Put her out to pasture. She won’t even know you’re gone...

Night and day difference. I do miss the C6 seats though. The C7's dig into my thigh. Can't have everything I guess

Too late.

It's such a great car I traded in my C6 Z06 for my '14 Stingray, and don't regret it one bit.

2013 GS A6 to 2017 GS A7... no regrets.
C7 is far superior IMO.
