    A6 Avant - Doors won't close when cold

    The driver's door on my A6 2004 (C5) Avant doesn't shut very well either. Most of the time it just 'bounces' and ends up just on the latch. A gentle close seems to work, a slam does not work. I thought it was just an adjustment issue of the lock but perhaps not. Reading this I think Audi need...

    Resetting the ''Service Due in ?? Miles'' Indicator

    Here is a simple procedure to reset the service countdown clock that actually worked. I found it after searching some forums such as Audi World. Many of the forums listed it with not quite proper English so it took me a few minutes of playing around to actually get it to work on my 2000 Audi A4...

    Authur, Did you retro-fit your DVD Sat Nav into your car or was it factory fitted? I have an 04...

    Authur, Did you retro-fit your DVD Sat Nav into your car or was it factory fitted? I have an 04 A6 and am considering buying the Audi RNS-D parts to retro-fit and was just wondering if you knew whether its just a matter of plug and play? Cheers, Adam

    Retro-fit Sat Nav Up-Grade.

    Does anyone know how complex it would be to fit an Audi RNS-D Sat Nav into my 2004 A6? I see them for sale and quite fancy up-grading the existing equipment and was wondering whether it's as simple as plug and play and whether additional kit is required? Any advice/experiences would be...

    Tyres For An A6 Avant - What's Best Toyo?

    I am soon topick up my 'new' 2004 A6 Avant Sport with RS alloys. Does anyone have any suggestions for a decent tyre? I want a decent hard wearing tyre offering me grip and my wife safety in the wet. I hear Toyos are pretty well thought of? Any suggestions will be most welcome, Cheers, Ace.

    Thinking about selling my A6

    ...oh, and personally, I would steer very clear of WeBuyAnyCar...I would assume they would offer you well below market value.

    Thinking about selling my A6

    Is there not a 7 seater kit that you can buy? Adding two more, rear facing, seats in the boot? Just an idea but I'm sure I've seen them for sale on eBay.

    LOSING WATER A6 AVANT 1.9TDi

    Good luck. I'll be selling my A4 very soon as I've just bought an 04 A6 1.9 TDi Avant in metallic black with cream leather interior, can't decide if it's pimp or diplomat at the moment...I guess the RS6 alloys and low-pros make it pimp!! Lovely cars.

    LOSING WATER A6 AVANT 1.9TDi

    I had the same problem on my A4 1.9 Tdi. I was losing water at quite a rate and neither I or my garage could find the leak. Like yours, the car would come up to temp perfectly and behaved as normal except the leak. Unfortunately I finally tracked in down to a very small leak from the head gasket...
