    Still trying to find an A6. Auto trader is getting hammered every-other night but not many popping up. Do most dealers fire them off to an auction when they get over a few years old?

    Still debating what model to get and what engine. Heart wants a 2.7 bi turbo, head says 1.8T :search:

    Fontain seems to have a few try them - www.fontain.co.uk

    Or another www.streben.com

    Just realized you are in Scotland so these are probably a bit too far to travel. It gives you an idea anyhow!

    1.8t i found underpowered and constantly using the turbo! Brilliant engine, slightly heavy car.
    2.7 bi turbo, i thought they were imports n not uk? tho i could be wrong but i havn't seen 1 yet.
    I've got a 1.9tdi, awesome power n torque! and if left alone = 55mpg!

    Have a look on ebay?

    Oh and the 2.7t is a UK spec car

    what happens to a6's? simple, people just dont sell them. They're like old mercs.. people just hold on to them until they break.... plus they're not majorly popular as company cars, so theres not loads of ex-fleet ones pumped into the market every 6 months.
