    which would you choose: a6 3.0tdi quattro auto avant or bmw 535d touring

    A6 3.0tdi auto:
    Fuel consumption (urban) 23.3 mpg
    Fuel consumption (extra urban) 45.6 mpg
    Fuel consumption (combined) 33.6 mpg
    0 - 62 mph 7.4 seconds
    Top speed 150 mph
    Cylinders 6
    Valves 24 v
    Engine power 233 bhp
    Engine torque 332 lbs/ft

    BMW 535d auto:
    Fuel consumption (urban) 25.4 mpg
    Fuel consumption (extra urban) 43.5 mpg
    Fuel consumption (combined) 34.4 mpg
    0 - 62 mph 6.6 seconds
    Top speed 155 mph
    Cylinders 6
    Valves 24 v
    Engine power 272 bhp
    Engine torque 413.1 lbs/ft

    having read alot of reviews the BMW overall is better on ride, engine etc.
    obviously the 535d engine has loads more power and also returns good mpg.

    advantage of audi is quattro.

    thoughts?

    i know this is an audi forum, but open to all thoughts

    All I will say is

    Think about the snow!!!!!!!!!

    All my colleagues with BM's left them on the drive for most of last winter.

    It's not all about power, it's about usable power.

    A friend of mine has an M5 and parks it up for the winter and drives his Range Rover.

    I would go for the A6, but then I am only an hours drive away from Glenshee, where I hope to ski all winter again, so the quattro would be the reason. Would love the BMW, but only if I had a quattro for back-up winter duties.
    Looking for the right A4 Quattro. 1.9 TDI / 1.8T or 2.0T...

    Yeah, would like to know those too, but then would consider 530d. Quattro is a nice to have, but obviously hits mpg a bit. Also how often do we get snow in the south west?

    Audi with the Quattro all day long......only due to having a 530d this winter being unable to get off the drive for almost 3 weeks. Less power I know, but unless you have access to a second car for the snow?

    having a BMW is a good excuse to Not get into work...Hur*Hum* lol i like the newer beemers but its the lack of interior style that just lets them down over the Audi....My choice though i think i would go for the 535d :P
