    Hello all

    Hi all my name is will and i live and work in ipswich, im 24 and currently own a vw bora 1.9tdi, my family is growing to 4 people come september so am in the process of looking for a more comfortable car (size wise) to have as our family car, i have spoken with my wife who will also drive the car and we have agree'd on an audi a6, dont know if we want a saloon or estate as yet but we have also agree'd on the mighty 2.7 turbo which i have fallen for big time, i have owned fast cars before and tbh the bora is the slowest car family or not i have owned so looking forward to the awsome noise from a v6 and also the accompanied turbo's, i will be getting it remapped and tuning a little to bring out that awsome noise a bit more but i do require some fuel ecomony, i can live with the 25-27mpg but wouldnt want much less. Anyway great site and look forward to being a bigger part.

    Welcome to the forum. The A6 is a good car and good engine choice. Hope its got parking sensors unless your wifes a good judge of distance! They are big cars! Loved mine, was sad to see it go!

    yeh, i mean i can live with 20+mpg i think but tbh with a good map it shouldnt effect it too much anyway as long as it is mapped, if we move to where we want mpg wont be a problem either as i will be having alot more money in my pocket lol.
