Hello everyone. I am, as of yesterday, an Audi owner, not because of any previously loyalty but because my previous car, a Mercedes-Benz A180 broke down. I was not at all pleased when, shortly before Christmas, it suddenly said "Transmission Fault" and refused to move. Since then diagnostics said the CVT belt is slipping which would be very expensive to resolve so I found myself looking for a replacement car. I spotted an 1999 Audi Allroad (A6) which looked good on paper, not so exciting in the photos but I am glad I went to see it. I felt completely at home and very comfortable the moment I sat in it and it has been a delight to drive over the last couple of days.

So, having found help before on similar forums, here I am hoping to find help with smaller ideas/problems and recommendations on decent specialists for the more complicated stuff.
