    As the lease on my current A6 BiTdi runs out in April 2017, its time to look at another car. Having a very good contact at my local Audi dealer, it was obvious for me to ask him for a quote (as well as from a few other manufacturers, NOT Bmw though!).

    Anyway, as I am extremely pleased with my current car (see link below) it was natural to look at the BiTdi or the Competition (326 bhp) that is available here. I also looked at the SQ7 (love the tech!) as well as the S4 Avant, S6 and the RS6.

    New A6 Avant BiTdi coming end of April

    First to go was the S4. Simply to small and although a very nice, fast car, it's almost as expensive as the bigger A6. Plus side is that it has all the latest tech which the A6 only gets in 2018 (or 2019 for the Avant) when the new A6 is rolled out.

    Next up was the SQ7. A fantastic machine with plenty of go but I found it to be simply too big for us (family of 3 + dog) plus I am not really into SUV's anyway. Wife has an XC60 T5 which is wonderful and fills that department.

    RS6 went quick too. Loved the performance but no way I would be able to turn up at clients in that. Everyone here knows what it is.... a well, another time perhaps.

    A6 BiTdi or the Competition - well, the latter feels just as quick as the normal BiTdi and one is pretty much restricted in the options one can have. For examply, I love the comfort seats that I have on the current one and these are not available. Only the SuperSport Seats, which to me, are very comfortable but do not beat the comforts seats by a long shot.

    So decided that the same model as today, the BiTdi, would be the best. Add the options and a few other things like Exclusive Paint and Interior and I was more or less ready to go. Just had to wait for Audi to give the sales guy the paint codes. While waiting for that (took a week for Audi to tell him!) I played around with another idea, namely the S6..... its a devil in the normal clothes of an A6 S-Line But could one justify the higher costs of an S6 compared to the BiTdi? I mean, insurance costs more, it drinks more fuel, service costs more and the lease rate is a bit higher than on the BiTdi.....but what the heck! One only live once!!

    As I always liked the Sepang Blue I was all set on getting that. But as this colour is becoming quote common and now available as a standard colour on many Audi models, I thought I would look for something else which is not standard on any Audi models. Getting a blue was a given as I have had enough of black cars so went for San Marino Blue (pics found online below). I also wanted Blue stitching on the seats as I really fancy something different than just the black seats that I have today. Red stitching was considered but would no way suit a blue car plus the red stitching is actually not easy to see anyway.

    So have today placed the order for a 2017 S6 Avant as spec below....est delivery April/May. Latest info dated yesterday from Audi says 3 months for normal A6, 4 months for A6 with BiTdi and/or S-Line pack and add another month for the exclusive paint etc.

    Please note that as I nowadays live in Germany the spec and options here are VERY different than that of the UK. We have some options not even available in the UK (which I find very strange come to think of it) and it does make one wonder why.

    Anyway, here's the new one, at least on paper as I have a very loooong wait ahead of me!
