Park Assist (7X5) or Audi Parking System Advanced with Reversing Camera (KA2)? –
If I had around £400 that I was allowing myself to spend on a, shall we say, more frivolous A6 option, would you advocate Park Assist or the rear camera?
I think the rear camera would be used on nearly every journey (but I've always found the acoustic beeps and red lines at the front and back to be perfectly fine on my A4) whereas - I know - the Park Assist would be used much less.
However, Park Assist is obviously much cooler and much more a taste of the future (if I'm not bigging-it-up too much). To be honest, I can't even blame my desire for it on my girlfriend, as she prefers to parallel park whereas I try to avoid it. I think the most useful bit about this feature would be the parking spot size matching that it does as you drive by. The coolness bit comes when it parks itself.
I would want to know, maybe from people who have Park Assist, that it works well and executes flawlessly, and quickly - there would be nothing worse than it failing to parallel park the car successfully for you, or it taking ages to complete the procedure - confidence would drop immediately.
Having allocated money to other options - expensive mirrors, advanced key, technology package, heated front seats and lighting package - I don't think I can stretch to a more expensive, cool, option - who'd not want adaptive cruise control? I could save the money, I guess...
