    Petty detail to many but just ordered new A6(UK) and was hoping someone could shed some light on what Ill be receiving or how to obtain the console finish upgrade.

    Ive seen some vehicles with black glass buttons on bottom of lower touchscreen, metal buttons below that (instead of the crappy plastic finish) and metal parking brake and hill hold (see photos).

    Only correlation I can find is the better trim appears to be included on vehicles with the city assist pack (which I dont really want at 1,375).

    Saw a UK motoring review which made reference to the buttons as an additional option but nothing in brochure.

    Thought Id try here before the dealer.

    Any ideas?

    My Sport with no options certainly has the version you show in the second photo. The upper photo is obviously a non UK car so it may just be something offered in other markets but not the uk

    Thanks but on the Audi Used website there are dozens of UK A6 vehicles for sale that show the better console finish so definitely available in the UK, just can’t work out what you’d need to order to achieve and suspect dealer wouldn’t know either without making calls.

    Think it may come with the extended LED lighting option. Car in your photo looks like it has it.

    I though the same but I’ve seen plenty of A6s with the extended LED lighting option but they still have the plastic buttons/trim.

    Ive asked the dealer to confirm.

    For anyone interested, the dealer has advised that only ‘pre-production’ models featured the enhanced interior trim and this is not available as an option on the A6.

    Makes sense therefore that I’ve seen the better trim on many used A6 models being sold by the dealers i.e. ex demo vehicles.

    Shame as the trim looks so much better and is available on other models sitting above the A6 in the the Audi range.
