    It's the 2.0 tdi 143 so nothing too exciting but never had a car this new and from a main dealer so it's a whole new experience!

    It is quartz grey, one thing i didnt know that you could get in the a4 avant was a panoramic roof but mine has got one was quite impressed with it.

    Thanks Sandra i'm sure we will have many happy miles out of it hopefully.

    Thanks for the warm welcome peeps had the a4 afew days now and love it so nice to drive very refined, i gave it it's first wash today as the sun was out. I had the autoglym lifeshine put on as part of the deal which i was not too fussed about to be honest but got the price down a fair bit and must say they have done a very good job which made it very easy to clean.

    Anyway here are some pics...

    very nice mate!
    never seen a roof like that on an avant! they must be pretty rare! i bet its very light inside!
    make sure you wash using the 2 bucket technique when washing to avoid transferring grit back onto paintwork and it will stay like that for years!
    how are you enjoying the auto handbrake?

    Thanks Chez, could do with getting a second bucket just to be safe although the one i've got has a grit guard in the bottom so is better than nothing.
    Still getting used to the auto handbrake never had anything like it before so it's all abit strange!
