Hi guys.
I have had a A7 for 2 weeks which is the same as the A6 and have one regret. And that is not ordering the High Beam Assist which automatically variably dips the headlight and switches to full beam again. This is a cheap 140 option. The xenons are great but because the end of the beam stops sharply, I am always switching from full to dip.

I had a test drive yesterday and was really impressed, so I can't wait to get mine.

Here are the quick pics. I spent the first 500 km, and I enjoyed the smooth ride, compared to my previous Passat B6.

The car is the first registered A6 in Macedonia, and I did not get a chance to have the customised preorder as the cars (only 4 of them) were already ordered in December. The cars arrived for the first presentation in Macedonia.

I picked up the car at 17:00 today, and have been driving it (and reading manuals) most of the evening! All I can say is ..... WOW!

This really is one amazing car. It drives so nicely, and the tech is just stunning.

SIM access profile is the only way to go for car phones, and having an Internet connection on board is just great, I love Google maps on the sat nav!

The Park Assist works really well, if slightly scary when it steers pretty close to parked cars, but with a bit of shifting back and forth between drive and reverse is automatically steered me into a tiny space!

The Bose speakers sound really good!

The feature to stop the engine when you press the brake is a bit disconcerting at first but I am getting used to it already!

All in all a wonderful car!

I'll upload a couple of photos tomorrow!

Congratulations Richard, the car looks great. I would appreciate some feedback on the quality of the phone. I have set mine up using SIM access profile but I am told that my voice comes over with a lot of background noise. My wife's fiesta is 100 times better. Do you have the same problem or do you think there is a problem with my set up.

Hi Guys,

First post on this forum, just ordered my C7 a couple of weeks ago, I have a confimed build week of 24/25 with delivery early July :D

2.0TDI S-Line
Ibis White
Tech Pack
20" Titanium Finish Alloys
Fold/Dip Mirrors
Privacy Glass

Had fun with the paint! Wanted Glacier White but with the Xirilac (or what ever it's called) shortage had to change. Got my 750 back for metallic paint plus another 750 as compensation so not all bad..

Will post some pics when i get it.

Welcome matey. (I think I can say that over here. I have a day pass from the A4B8 side of the forum).

That sounds a great spec, although when playing at the weekend the config would not let me spec a 2.0 S line.

I am going to try a blag a testy tomorrow as I like these a lot.

Enjoy and pic's when it drops please

24-05-2011, 09:40 PM
Thanks mate :D

I currently drive a B8 avant as well. Don't know why they haven't put the 2.0tdi S-Line on the configurator. I think you will be presently surprised by the power and torque, obviously the 3.0tdi would be nice but sometimes compromises have to be made.

Went on the Silverstone launch event and it was great to drive them back to back as well as comparing to the BMW, Merc and Jag.

I find that the sound in the car is very clear, but the people I am talking to say I sound a bit distant. Adjusting the Mic level has helped a bit, but its still not as good as my previous Jag. This is a pity as the phone operation is so much better than the Jag!

Yes! (new to forum so please forgive me if I have ended up in the wrong place!)

Ordered via my company a 2012 A6 saloon S line 2L D Multitronic in Glacier White, this replace my 2007 A6 S line 2L D Multitronic (Silver). I should have replaced my current car last year but I have been hanging on for the new C7 (current A6 has 147,000 on the clock, still drives up and down the M40 like new). A few questions :-

1) Has any one seen or got any pics of an Sline? I have spoke to several dealers who only have SE's which seem to be the only models used as launch cars.

2) The lease company (Lex Autolease) wouldn't allow me to order Ibis White, which would have been cheaper for my company, but only Glacier White. Again I have spoken to several dealers who haven't even seen this colour yet. All they say is its metallic and because of all the issues in Japan it might add to the delivery date. Which brings me onto my final question below.....

3) When do you think I might get my new car any Audi insiders? Ordered mid May, Basic A6 2.0D S line Multitronic in Glacier White with Black Valcona (no extras) oh, sorry model description deletion. Lex are telling me October!!!

Any feedback would be great

Thanks you

Cheers - Looks great, cant wait to see your pics. Bizarre, just realised I have order a car in not just a style I haven't seen in the flesh, but also a colour that no one seems to have seen!

In fairness this will have been my 3rd Audi and I haven't regretted any of them.

I did 18 months in an E-class once, never again.

agw82
06-06-2011, 10:50 PM
It's not great news on the delivery front I'm afraid, the pigment Xirallic is only made by one company in one place, which unfortunately is in Japan close to the nuclear plant. This pigment is used in many metallic colours for many manufacturers and the shortage is causing major disruptio.

http://www.merck-chemicals.com/pigments/xirallic-/c_xpOb.s1L_UwAAAEWg8UfVhTn

The pigment is also patented so no one else can make it, the company merck who make it are trying to set up production else where but it requires very specialised kit to produce and they don't expect to fill the backlog any time soon. Audi told me it would be at least September before my car would go into production but would likely be even longer than that, possibly 2012 before delivery..

As for Glacier White it is almost like ibis in bright light and then turns grey in dull light, the rreferences to suzuka grey aren't too far off..

I'm surprised you managed to order the 2.0 diesel in any kind of auto as that option isn't available yet?

Whatever happens I don't think you will be disappointed..

Hi - Thanks for the update. Check our the current A6 / C7 brochure, you will see the 2.0 D multitronic has been listed since April (you can download it from the Audi UK website). With regard to colour, do you believe that non metallic i.e. Ibis White, will shorten lead times if opted for?

If so I will press Lex to change for my original choice of colour.

Definitely, I had to change mine from glacier to ibis and mine will be here at the end of June.

I ordered early May.

One more thing to consider is Audi are mainly doing runs with the tech pack first so if you haven't had the tech pack this could also delay things slightly.

You could try mobile solutions in Derby, they will retrofit DAB but not sure if they can do the new A6 yet. On the subject of lead times, I've been quoted March 2012 delivery, does that sound right? It's basically no good to me as I want to hand the key back on my current lease car in December, as usual I've left it too late so will have to take whatever stock is in the system.

nealeb
15-11-2011, 05:36 PM
3 weeks ago I was quoted mid-Jan for a factory build; last week I was told that it might be ready by Christmas. Mid-March sounds a bit pessimistic, given those dates.

Not sure what's in other dealers' showrooms but the 2 demo cars and the showroom car in my local dealer seem to me to have a funny bunch of options on them. Not sure how they pick them! But then, I'm not one for fancy wheels or sound systems:)

blue62
15-11-2011, 05:53 PM
Strange, I'm talking to Listers in Coventry and they're telling me if I order now the car will be built in Feb with March delivery, maybe it's to do with the specific model (I want a 3.0tdi Avant). Funnily enough I am into big wheels and audio, who is your local dealer and what is sitting in the showroom?

nealeb
15-11-2011, 06:02 PM
I was after an SE Avant Quattro 3.0TDI. My local dealer is Southampton Audi, located in Chandlers Ford just north of Southampton. The Quattro demonstrator was a saloon, and the estate demo a FWD, both 3.0TDI and, I believe, SE not S-line. They had something else in the showroom but again, I think that that was an SE as well.

When I looked at the Audi web site for second-hand options there was a whole bunch of what were presumably demo/showroom cars listed with Dec/Jan availability. Prices were close to list, though, and with the official Audi discounts a new car was cheaper. That's without any negotiation, of course.

Awww hahaha. I may consider leasing an A6 now as I have quite a costly problem with my current A6 now so I may sell it and get a new A6 on lease. I think its around 4900 a year for a 3 year contract for an SE model with leather and MMI High. Reckon its worth it or not? I'm trying to persuade the wife that a lease works out better. I mean come on 15000 for 3 years worth of usage out of a brand new car?

blue62
22-11-2011, 10:59 AM
It's worth checking out soon, I know that at the moment Audi are supporting A6 deals because they want to get cars on the road, pro rata the contract rates are very competitive at the moment on A6 (an equivalent priced A7 was 100 more to rent each month) but it won't stay that way for too much longer.

Hi everyone, 1st post on here.

I joined because my employer has just ordered me a 2.0Tdi A6 Avant S-Line in Black (no extras unfortunately). I'm told it will be here 1st March and to be honest I can't wait. I only managed to get it because Audi are doing some unreal lease deals, and Newcastle Audi were brilliant. I can't believe I'm getting the A6 for less than I could replace like-for-like my current Honda Accord Tourer.

I have looked at every picture of the car on the entire internet, and love seeing pictures of those lucky enough to already have the car. I'd love to see some Avants if anyone can upload pictures of theirs.

Noob here - have joined as I have just been told by my garage that my new A6 is awaiting shipment from the factory!
3.0 TDi Quattro Avant
Oolong Grey
Black, black-black, grey headlining
Comfort seats and 17" wheels as I've a knackered back
Bluetooth high
Memory mirrors

Hoping against hope it arrives by Christmas, ordered it in October

I was told that my 3.0TDI Avant SE Quattro is also built and waiting shipment, should be ready just before Christmas. That was ordered towards the end of October.

06-12-2011, 05:12 PM
Forgot to say mine's an SE too, but you may have guessed from the wheels!

I can't wait! This will be my 7th brand new car and it's easily the one I've looked forward too the most.

Heard this morning that mine is due with the dealer tomorrow or the day after. Probably pick it up some time next week; I want to see if there is any interest at all in my current A6 over the weekend before I have to settle for the dealer trade-in. Seems to have been very little interest to date, though. You would have thought that everyone would want a Quattro with the weather forecasts we are getting at the moment:)

Ordered min end of October for Feb delivery.
Got a decent lease deal (pcp with option to buy) with Stoke Audi on the A6 2.0 TDi SE.
2K down - 340 a month over 2 years - 10K miles a year. Audi contributed 1750.
Looked at Mondeo titanium TDi - similar price, but when Audi came up with these current deals it was a no brainer!!

MFGF
21-12-2011, 02:20 PM

Can't wait and counting down the hours.....

Just not sure about the 20" wheels and the snow/ice..... might need a set of 18"s with all season/winter tyres on.... any thoughts ????

MFGF
22-12-2011, 12:36 PM
With brand new tyres you may be ok - it depends on which tyres are fitted. I guess the only way to know is to wait and see. Which wheels are you getting - I think there is a choice of three designs in 20" ?

Cheers!

MF.

dgarside
22-12-2011, 12:39 PM
Not sure of the exact name but they are the RS style ones, not the Titanium finished ones... Not sure I would have picked 20" wheels, 19" would have been my preference.... but they do look fantastic.

Going to ask a friend of mine at Audi dealer to see what package prices are for winter tyres + alloys, hopefully they still do them and can do a good deal..... maybe not :D

Darren.

MFGF
22-12-2011, 12:50 PM
The 5-segment-spoke wheels? I almost opted for those, but my wife's TT has 19" versions and I wanted something a little different.

I am a little late joining the forum, but ordered my A6 at the end of October and picked it up on November 1st. It was a part built stock car, which actually arrived early.

I didn't add anything to the standard S-Line specification, since the S-Line specification is extremely high already. NAV, Voice control etc... Darren, you're correct, there is SO much tech on these cars, I am learning something new every time I drive it!

The 2.0 TdI engine is my first oil burner and I am pleased with the economy and torque. It took a little getting used to at first, but not as much as the electronic parking brake and the Stop Start technology! Damn that brake was difficult... Just remember your seat belt needs to be fastened!

I had forgotten how much I had loved driving Audi's in the past!

Not only did I order in October, but I'm just about to order again...

I took delivery a few days before Christmas and found out later that night that I didn't have the adaptive Xenon lights that I thought that I had ordered, just the plain Xenon. After some discussion with the dealer and allowing for the holidays getting in the way, I borrowed an adaptive-lights version to try out last night to confirm that that was what I really wanted, and I'm now in the middle of agreeing an updated spec for a replacement car. As I say, there was a little discussion with the dealer but they accept that there was a breakdown in the system somewhere (and it does look at least as much an ordering-system problem as human error and I really do not want to point any fingers - it was a genuine mistake).

This time, though, I decided to go the whole hog and get the LED headlights. And I was seduced by the adaptive cruise control on the car I had last night and that's going on as well. And my wife decided that her dislike of heated seats was based on experience of a Vauxhall 15 years ago and the ones in the test car were really good at warming her up when she had got very cold and wet earlier in the day... Just as well that it didn't have a HUD:)

I also test-drove an S-line today, as that would include the sports seats and base-level Xenon lights that I wanted anyway and for a little bit extra might have been a better car. Winding it around country lanes, the firmer, more direct feel was a bit better than my current SE for me as a driver, but I had to agree with my wife that otherwise it was generally harsher and certainly noisier than the SE with its softer suspension and wheel/tyre setup so as the car will spend most of its life as a motorway cruiser, it's the SE again for me.

Hats off to Southampton Audi for working to keep me as a happy customer. Which I am:)

I picked up my used C7 320tdi Se last Tuesday. First ever Audi as my last 3 cars have been BMWs but was seduced by this car after calling in to test drive an A4 quatro which didn't impress me much.

At 8 months old, by far the oldest car I've bought in the last 10 years but an Audi launch car with 6000 of options, 4k on the clock it ticks most of the boxes for me and I'm really pleased with it (except for the crap steel tailpipes now suitably covered with polished covers).

The car looks brand new (my wife wouldn't believe it isn't until she checked the speedo) - Almost 13000 of the list price as well as good part ex for my BM and I'm happy with the deal.
My reg plates transfer came through very quickly as well so feels more like mine now :approve:

My current car goes in April, and the delivery of the new car is timed to coincide with that date. I guess the new car might be delivered to the dealers before then, but if so it will sit around for a couple of weeks. If that happens, I might be very tempted to take a drive up to Leeds to see if I can take a look :)

Oh Oh, I've had the email from the dealer saying my 2.0Tdi Avant S-Line has been made and has left Ingolstadt. You'd think I'd be happy but my current car's lease is up 1st Feb and I was hoping I could Extend until March 1st to get the new 12 Reg plate. My company accountant wants my current car to go back to avoid having to get an MOT (in case there are repair costs), I want to wait. It's a minor thing and I'm sure you all think I'm mad not wanting the car as soon as possible, but to have the current plate for only a few weeks would be a bummer.

How long does it take to get here? Do you think I could get the dealer to pretend there's been a delay? How do you organise strikes at ports?

Actually I can't wait, bring it on.

MFGF
16-02-2012, 04:00 PM
Yay! I got a call from Leeds Audi this afternoon. My new car has arrived at the dealership. Yippee! The lease on my current A6 doesn't expire until 27th April, so I have to be a patient boy and wait until then to get my hands on the new car. Sigh.

On the afternoon of Friday 27th April I will be a happy bunny! :-)

What I am finding reassuring is that my use of the C6 is demonstrating to me that I made all the right choices (S is far too hard, ambient lighting is a waste of money, low nav is pants, HUD will be great, so will ACC etc.)

Glad you're enjoying the A6 experience! As for me, S line with S line suspension is just perfect, ambient seemed too expensive for what it is, Nav High with online services is a no brainer and ACC would be a waste for me (but the larger fuel tank means less stops at the smelly oily diesel pumps and DAB will be a nice indulgence)

Cheers!

The one I have is S line and also has thin tyres. The effect is almost like not having suspension - you feel every bump, and going over sleeping policemen is most uncomfortable. TBH I can't understand why anyone would want the suspension like that in a family car. I sort of get it in a sports car, but this is a large estate.

The ride is very similar to the BMW 5GT, which I rejected outright on ride alone.

But no matter, I've got it for a couple of weeks and it's lovely in many other ways (though there are also a surprising number of niggles, such as the reflection of the word Auto in the wing mirror (I've now put a sticker over it), the way the radio keeps switching itself on (I now leave it in Media) and, most annoying of all, the way the map reverts to Overview whenever you go off elsewhere in the MMI and then come back.)

But it's quiet and lovely to drive, especially in a graceful and dignified, moving armchair way.

Well I guess I can post me. As my 61 plate A6 SE is officially dead Audi are replacing it with a 12 plate A6 S line with technology pack, storage pack, heated seats, full beam assist and a few other goodies. Hopefully this car won't try and kill me like the last one did. Although I'm getting the feeling I came across a one off.

My delivery date at the moment is 30th March. Currently driving around in an A7 until then.

Timothy Nathan
20-02-2012, 01:45 PM
Was the decision to move from SE to S yours, or is it just what was being built at the time?

TopherGeorge
20-02-2012, 04:23 PM
Well I guess a few reasons. On my last car I had the standard lights and standard seats etc, with this new car I wanted those changed to the sports seats for more support and running lights amoung other things. I know it's sad but at 26 there is a lot about how the car looks and I think that the s line just looks more interesting, and a bit younger. I was looking at an A7 or a New model Jag XJ originally, but the A6 was a compromised on saving money for a deposit for an apartment.

I know that the ride will probably more rough. However I used to have 19" wheels on the new one I've just ordered 18" to try and offset this slightly.

Those of you with the S-line what's he ride actually like? I guess I'm of an age where I'm not too worried if its a bit bumpy, but would be nice to know.

Timothy Nathan
20-02-2012, 06:18 PM
The ride on my loaner (which is a C6 S line with big wheels and small tyres) is pretty awful. I would find it unacceptable for more than the couple of weeks I've got it. You can feel the slightest imperfection on the road.

On the motorway it's great, though.

But I'm an old git wanting a floating armchair and caring not a jot what it looks like from the outside, so different strokes....

TopherGeorge
20-02-2012, 06:26 PM
Ah see that's why I have gone for an S Line with not so huge wheels. I drove an SE with 20inch wheels and I found the ride in that terrible. Well I guess time will tell if I made the right choice!!! I'll post pics when I collect the car. I drove the new XJ recently and they got the ride perfect, doesnt even compare with the A6. But if I was going to buy one of those it woul of had to be used, can't afford one new just yet. Looking forward to getting my new car, will run it in on a trip to Italy.

Guest 2
20-02-2012, 06:44 PM
My A6 isn't the most comfortable car on bad roads but on the motorway the ride is comfortable.

Every loan car I've had out has been an S - Line has been the exact same but this is a characteristic of the suspension. The A8 I had on loan was a Sport but it had air suspension which provided a magic carpet ride :)

TopherGeorge
20-02-2012, 06:52 PM

I have new 2.0 TDI S Line running on big fat 20" wheels and absolutely love it. It may not be like "a floating armchair" but it is hardly a bone shaker. It is great on motorway, looks fantastic and is a excellent on the winding country roads. The SE I test drove was also great but very happy with my purchase.

TopherGeorge
20-02-2012, 08:34 PM
Well that's really reassuring actually. Have you got the 20" Rotors. I love them but decided I couldn't justify the extra expense at the moment. I'm tempted to sell mine on eBay at some point and do a swap after I take a ride in a car with them fitted to see what they are like.

I think they are the same. When do you need them buy, I'm still waiting for this car to be delivered, but it's something I'm interested it. I'm picking up a cancelled order that's already been shipped, which is why I didn't ask for them to be changed already.

Great I will do. Really I should do what your doing and keep a set for winter but I'll wait until next year and put some money aside to do it all.

Do you know how well the front wheel drive a6 and a7 drive with winter tyres? I was hoping to give it a try and head over to Switzerland last month, but had to have some surgery on foot, so was banned from driving for a bit. Gutted.

It's funny how different people can see the same things but in an entirely different light. My C6 has the 30mm drop S line suspension with 19" wheels, and I find it pretty much perfect for my tastes. My new C7 was ordered with the S line suspension and 20" wheels. I expect to like it a lot! :)

You can always check the tax status and askMid to check if its insured :)

Do you know how well the front wheel drive a6 and a7 drive with winter tyres?

I do have the 20" rotors on my pearlescent grey S line. The car looks amazing and as I said drives great. Not the best drive in the snow I have ever had but got me to work and home through heavy Essex snow..... While my BMW and Merc driving neighbours left their cars on the drive. Had to go to Germany last weekend and was considering driving there but they have strict Winter tyres .... The winter tyres on those wheels is serious money so not a runner for me

Has anyone left a deposit or enquired about buying the BiTurbo 3.0 TDi?

This is the one I'm aiming for ;)

Just spoken to my local Audi dealer and they are expecting to receive my replacement car next week with handover the week after, complete with shiny "12" plate.

Still happy that I am going for the SE after test-driving an S-line with air suspension. Comfort or dynamic mode, I found it harsh and noisy. I don't want road noise keeping me awake when I'm motorway cruising...

And I trust that you have gone for the std 18" wheels which I find just fine. Must meet up some time. Are you near J5 M3.

nealeb
21-02-2012, 09:51 PM
Not quite sure who that was aimed at but if it was me then no, I don't want 18" wheels. 17" for me, the standard SE fitting. Air suspension didn't do anything for me, and I reckon that it was the 18" wheels that made it harsher and noisier whatever air suspension settings I used. Powered armchair here I come!

And I really can't get worked up about cosmetics of wheels. I have an SE sitting on the drive at the moment and I couldn't tell you how many spokes the wheels have...

Sorry Nealeb, I forgot that I was on the A6 forum. Its just that the A7 has the 18" as standard on the SE. I have deleted my inbox so space available.

I found the perfect car this morning for sale by Audi.

Just under a year old 3.0TDi quattro S Line auto, Ice Silver, 4000 miles, near enough every option ticked bar the automatic parking. It had LED lights, Mmi touch with online, heated electric memory seats, dab, digital tv, rear parking camera, heated steering wheel, lane and side assist, the whole lot basically.

I've talked Mrs R round to changing and she agrees but when I came home this evening to show her, it seems it has been removed from the used cars and looks to be sold :( :( :(

Damn you whoever bought it. I have pictures saved and will post in the morning :(

Just got my C7 in for the repair on the bumper, and got a nearly new C6 as a loan car.... God am I happy with my car compared to the older model. Such a difference in the features and quality feel, I'm now 100% sure going for a new C7 is the right decision.

Lovely car Chris. Pity it went.

I'm sure there will be another just round the corner. They look so good. Sort of a "softer" version of the C6 chassis if you get me? More rounded.

Guest 2
26-02-2012, 09:26 AM
I wouldve bought it yesterday if I could, maybe I'm a bit greedy with spec but it ticked all the boxes of what I 'wanted'. Just need to keep a lookout to see what's out there.

I agree the c7 seems to be a lot more softer looking than the c6, it has a bit of a4 about it I think.

Guest 2
26-02-2012, 05:06 PM
I would love one of them, but I would have to wait until they become used which will take too long.

What looser are they standard? Around 300?

SuperCharger28
26-02-2012, 11:57 PM
I think they are 304BHP as standard.

I would imagine with a K&N filter, milltek sports exhaust and a good remap should be able to hit 400+ bhp from a friggin diesel!

I have mine now and am loving it. I've only driven from Epsom to Richmond and back, so no open roads, but the car is beautifully smooth and quiet, everything just works as it should, the ACC is great, I love the HUD, it makes a big difference.

My wife keeps muttering "and so it should do" under her breath, but secretly I know she is delighted too, particularly at the quietness.

And the small wheels and SE suspension are so much more comfortable than the S Line I have given back. But I am a moving armchair driver, so it's not surprising I prefer it.

Unlucky - I missed one in Milton Keynes as it hadn't been taken off the website so feel your pain (it had hud as well) - funny there were 2 same spec, colour & wheels - no led headlights mind in Dec in Warrington & Manchester Audi...Nottingham had a grey one but would have thought all gone by now - app they were all a batch of cars from Bentley garages if my dealer was to be believed......

The one I found was in Tamworth and going from the reg it was an Audi Uk car. I'd say with that amount of kit and mileage it wouldve been a demo.

Pity though I missed it. Will start looking again on Monday.

First post from me on these forums...

Ordered my A6 Avant this week. Would have loved the 3.0, but my budget didn't run that high! So, it's 2.0 tdi Multi S-Line for me. Went for Oolong grey, on the 19" 7 twin spokes and a few other bits. Waiting for my build week still, but told "June" so far. Managed to negotiate a rather healthy 20% off list too (circa 6500.)

It's replacing my current BMW 650i as we need the space for family duties! Having my range extend from 250 miles a tank to 500+ is going to be nice too.

What sort of build times have people actually experienced?

If you ordered AMI - make sure the lead they give you is RED collar as newer and more features than the older blue one.

Ordered multi 2.0 s line yesterday too. Went for a few extras with the comfort pack one of them. Dealer said there weren't any dealer stock models with the comfort pack so had to reconfigure a part built phantom black model. Delivery due to early June fingers crossed.

Would say I was surprised there weren't any dealer stock cars with the comfort pack speced.

16380Took delivery yesterday of a C7 3.0 TDI Quattro S-Line in Dakota Grey with the 20" rotors and am in love with it already. I came out of a A5 3.0 TDI S-Line and the comfort difference is immense along with no performance drop. Although averaging 26.2 mpg so far with 60 miles done I do hope it loosens up soon as was averaging 39+ in the A5.

just taken delivery of my A6 Avant 2l tdi, s line daytona grey, with heated seats and 19" five arm alloys as options. Got approximately 7.6k discount from list, with gap insurance and first service thrown in due to a delivery hold up. I haven't driven it far yet, but its a huge step up from my A4 B7. Average for the 5 miles from the dealer was 36mpg. Further updates to follow!

I've just taken delivery of the A6 2.0TDi SE White saloon at the weekend. Really like the car and kit for the price i'd paid for it :D
I have a fuel tank of fuel and the computer says it has 400 miles to go till empty - thought the tank could get up to 800 miles???
Anyone having problems using the voice recognition?

My C7 A6 2.0 tdi is coming up 12 months and 6500 so reasonably run in and I can't get anywhere near the published mpg figures. Day to day I get 36- 40 but tried a run in econo mode, driving like a granny and managed 48mpg. My previous BMW with a similar spec engine was 10 mpg better.
Not a problem as I don't do enough mileage to matter and I love the car otherwise.

Just took delivery of my 2012 A6 2.0Tdi Saloon S Line Only had a few options (19" 5 spoke, Tech Pack, Lighting Pack). Cracking deal and it feels so much smoother and the ride is better than my 2010 Le Mans. Few little issues, The yellow stop blocks are our of the housing, the boot lid seems out of alignment and the return button on the MMI keeps sticking. Only minor things covered 100 miles it's great.

This stop blocks thing sounds like it's endemic.
