    Last night i gave one of my mates a lift home. On the way it became apparent he thought i'd bought a new car and was very surprised when he realised it had done 140000 miles and was 5 years old. Couldn't believe condition etc. So this morning on the way to work i was more than a little p****d off when a nurse drove her Seat Arosa into my door and left a nicely creased red and black go faster stripe down the side of the car as i was driving past the end of her side road. She said she didn't see me. I get this when out on the bike, but you didn't see 1.75 tonnes of A6 coming?! What made it worse was her 10 year old heap only collected a scuff mark on the bumper. Yours, very grumpy

    Yeah i get that crap when i'm out on the bike 2 hence main beam on all the time! A6's happen to be 1 of the biggest cars on the road (cars! not oversized 4x4 type peoplewagon junk!) no excuse, hope her insurance gonna sort it all out, and didn't see me, more like she didn't look!

    And I'm an S6 owner so "HELLO!!".

    Irritatingly some old cun# on a pushbike deliberately knocked my wing mirror off this morning as i didnt leave enough room for him and his collostomy bag it would seem. I chased him but he hid- very amusing in retrospect!! Glad i didnt catch him though as he may have had a large V8 up his jacksey- which he may have enjoyed.

    Rant over.

    Hello all!!

    Incidentally, just got back from 2k run to south of France, the motor did me proud. not a glitc. Love that cruise control. Mind you average consumption of 20mpg not great!! Anyone with Xenons need to know how to change over reflector aligment for Europe, mail me- it's easy.

    As a first car I wouldnt have anything else but an A6, tried the BMW route many years ago before going Audi and wouldnt go back. Even had a Lexus, but that put 10 years on me.

    Looked at an a4 Avant before buying this one but the boot space was smaller than my previous A6 2.8q. Need the spoace with 3 kids and a dog.

    In the last twelve months, Ive driven the the south of Austria and France and its effortless.

    I must admit I used to lurk and only posted if I felt I had some good information to add, such as the part number for the windows problem.

    Now this A6 forum is starting to get busy and more of us keep appearing out of the woodwork ,lets keep it up


    Cheers

    Yep, me too!

    Bought myself an A6 2.7T off Ebay (yes, Ebay).

    What a gorgeous, wonderful car.

    Nowhere near as easy to roll as my poor old 80 Estate was!

    Currently trying to get it modded because I got thrashed by one of those stupid little Honda Civic Type R shopping trollies.

    And another.......

    I've got a standard 2002 1.9TDi, and it's a great car. Wouldn't mind an RS6 though! ;-)

    I'm just psyching myself up to do a major brake overhaul, as the standard brakes are past their best (lots of judder). I'm thinking new standard discs all round, with maybe EBC "Greenstuff" pads. Anyone tried them?

    I have submitted pics to my gallery of my A6 3.0TDI ABT/AMD AVANT. Forgive me if you've already seen them. I wanted to include myself as an A-SIXER in this section.

    A6 Owner

    bought this car recently A6 2.0L auto,1995 petrol (m) ABK engine it was a prt ex and as i love audis i took pity on this car and bought it. 124.000 miles

    Having spent on tyres etc to get it road worthy and through it's Mot

    I am having problems with irratic tick over/cutting out until it warms up. and then hunts, i like smooth engines and this is getting on my pip when driving though as if on a long stretch of road it's fine....

    as suggested by several people can i attribute this to the air mass unit ?

    if so where can i get one? i like working on this car it would be a shame to give up on it


    another problem i am getting is when driving (before above problem) shift from 2 to 3 gear it wouldn't go into gear straight away and the revs would increase as if in neutral and then kick into gear with a jolt..otherwise i am enjoying life with my audi.

    would the air mass meter effect emmissions?


    I have changed, fuel filter, plugs, dist-cap and rotor arm. will invest in leads but the ones that are on there seem fine and newish and placed injector cleaner in tank with fresh petrol.
