    Yes. This is my first A6 and this may be normal for Audi and I have notice too.

    Yes thats becouse u have a motor to push the door when u open the door. Its a option to install a motor to shut the door close if its not closed

    I would agree that the doors on my C8 require more effort to close properly than those on my previous C7. I suspect the cause may be that the C8 is better sealed than the C7 and as a result the rise in air pressure in the car is greater causing the doors to find it harder to shut

    Try it with a window cracked open, just to see.

    Had car back to audi for rattle n/s/f end off dash trim told them about door was told yes you need to shut the door harder but weve cleaned and hoovered your car so was took to car and guess what ??? DOOR NOT CLOSED PROPERLY !!! . Called customer service and raised complaint was told they dont have any complaints as yet. All i can say is when my car goes in with hand brake fault will be because ive pulled away without putting it off which you can do if your belts on and the DOORS SHUT ����
