Just picked up my A6 a couple of days ago (1999 2.4 Se tiptronic Avant) and thorougherly loving my first venture into Audi motoring. Out of sight better then my previous Volvo V70! A couple of points I am not sure about though. According to the temperature gauge it takes for ever to warm up, something like 30 miles or more to get only near the 60 mark on the gauge. On short journeys it hardly moves at all. is this normal for these cars or is there a problem with the thermostat or sender? Also the drver info/sat nav screen between the dials on the instrement panel has blank lines running through it, making it difficult to read. I have been told there is a wide tape type cable which runns into the back of it and it is this that is faulty. Is this likely and is it a relatively easy repair.
