Wolf in sheeps clothing
AUDI A6 4.2 Quattro SE 5dr Tip Auto (Review date: 2nd July '11)
Had this car for over a year. Boy is it fast and grips the road like many a sports car (my wife has a boxster which isn't that much quicker). Really comfortable with loads of room all over the car. This has all the toys which have proved to be reliable. As you would expect it is expensive to run on fuel. Have now converted to run on LPG so compared to petrol I now get the equal to 42 to the gallon. Sevice intervals at 19,000 and cheaper than both BMW and Mercedes. What is disappointing though is the colour has come of some of the switch gears which is disappointing for a quality car, this never happened on previos 5 series and e class's I have owned. Be aware if your battery goes. Audi have it appears created a system where you are better buying a replacement battery of them. If not it can go flat if not using for two weeks. Not much good when you go on holiday I can asure you. Boot takes everything thrown at it. Geat car would recommend to anybody.
the family dream machine
AUDI A6 2.0 TDI DPF SE 5dr Multitronic (Review date: 1st July '11)
the car for a family, quiet, sophisticated, comfortable, practical for those DIY trips too. One could say it nearly drives itself, eats up the miles on motorways, cruise control on stereo quietly playing my favourite classics and madame on the nav system smoothly guiding me on my way. Storage space in the boot fantastic - luggage with room for the golf club and guns too. Town diving an absolute doddle set the speed alert monitor for those times when, you know , one should not exceed the limit and it hauls one back to reality.
Great car, totally suits my life style
A car for family life with a bit of fun thrown in
AUDI A6 2.0 TDI 170 SE 5dr Multitronic (Review date: 1st July '11)
i really enjoy driving the car and it is very practical for family life. It handles really well around the corners and has plenty of space to hold all the gear when we go camping. The only grumble I have is that cup holders in the back are not standard and i have taken a lot of grief from my children for this omission
Excellent fast estate
AUDI A6 2.7 TDI S Line 5dr (Review date: 14th June '11)
Brilliant family car. Solid build quality and drive. Excellent V6 diesel- 2ltr is underpowered for such a big car-and economy is still good, over 40 mpg. S line comes with all of the toys you would want, climate, sat nav leather heated seats. Boot isn't huge. Audi servicing is expensive but has variable interval.

AUDI A6 3.0 TDI Quattro S Line Special Ed 5dr Tip Auto (Review date: 17th May '11)
Great drive, not so great on the wallet!
AUDI A6 3.0 TDi Quattro Le Mans 5dr Tip Auto (Review date: 17th April '11)
When I considered BMW Series in a 3 litre engine, it was £245 to tax for 12 months. We bought the Audi, not to realise we were paying the same as an Audi R8 to tax and run.
There is, however pros as well. The car is comfortable, powerful and practical and the sat nav works a treat. The front and rear parking sensors have saved us from a few scratches, and the 3 litre engine is lovely on long journeys but it only reaches 30 mpg at most.
Some problems we've had is the tracking : on the M5, a fuel light warning, and the fuel injector stopped working in Tetbury.
We now have a Skoda 1.8 Laurin and Klement, and that has more spec than a 49k car.
Despite how I loved the Audi, it is just too much to run and getting a little unreliable. It is also, I think, way overpriced.
AUDI A6 3.0 TDi Quattro Le Mans 5dr Tip Auto (Review date: 23rd March '11)
Whilst generally comfortable on short journey's the sport suspension in the Le Mans S line model was far to stiff for trips over 40 of 50 miles, this culminated in fatigue and back aches.
The most annoying part of ownership was road tax, whereby the 3.0 quattro tdi was 226g the £425.00 tax bracket is 225g and over (1 gram, unbelievable).
It is recommended to consider this when buying and taxing.
