    My car

    Took delivery just over a month ago. An excellent car that combines style with comfort. In my opinion classier than the 5 series and younger than the E class. Cabin and toys are a joy while the engine has no problems propelling you along even in 2.0 TD guise! The real winner for me was road tax is great for such a big car and the boot well the boot is HUGE!

    My car

    Had my A6 2.0TDi SE for 4 months now and covered 10,000 miles. Car hasnt put a foot wrong. No problems or unscheduled visits to the dealer. 2.0 Diesel has loosened up nicely and regularly does 45+ mpg on motorway journeys. Plenty of grunt as well and never feels underpowered. Very compforatble and extremely well built. In short it does exactly what it says on the tin. A fine car.

    My car

    I've just taken delivery of a 2.0TDi SE, after 2 years and 70,000miles in a Merc 200K it was with some trepidation, the Audi was only taken as I couldn't get well specced E220Cdi in the short time span I had available (Note to Merc dealers: order showroom cars with extras if you want to sell them!) Performance is not an issue after the car has covered the first 2 meters, before that it seems sluggish. This car is used almost exclusively in city traffic and on the motorway, a smooth ride and light controls make it superb for both. Inside it SEEMS larger than it is, even though I've got a black leather interior.(not my choice)I don't drive with the seat right back as I did before. It's very comfortable, even after 6 hours behind the wheel. The boot capacity is huge but the boot opening is slightly awkward compared to the Merc. The MMI, and in particular the bluetooth handsfree is simply the BEST I've used (Although switching the radio from fav stations on MW to FM is not as easy as the Merc)the speaker system is superb, certainly better than the Merc, but not being able to slot in the odd CD while driving is a pain. WHY don't the mirrors simply fold in when you take the key out? Does anybody remembers to turn a knob before getting out? Big minus on this from me. All in all a great car that I will suggest to others in my company as and when they are due to renew their cars.

    My car

    Mine's an auto, had it for a year and 27k miles. It's a company car hence the lower emission 2.0 engine to keep the tax bill down. To be honest, I thought it would be a bit sluggish but here in the congested south-east of England I can't think of any time I've needed more power. It'll cruise at way more than the limit in as much silence as the V6 models and return 42-46 mpg on a run, 39 mpg overall. I'm well happy with that.

    Mine was specced up as I went for the smaller engine and the sat-nav, ipod connection, xenon lights and leather seats are fantastic. Having all of my music at my fingertips makes me happy! The sheer space and cabin quality are better than the 5-series that I tried.

    The ride is better than expected too - having read some of the reviews here I was expecting worse on 18" alloys.

    Absolutely no reliability issues AT ALL but minor gripes? Only one reversing light and no seat-back nets is plain tight - these could have been paid for if the un-necessary full-size alloy spare had been a space-saver. Audi dealers could also do better and learn from Honda. Other than that, brilliant car, highly recommended.
