    Wing mirror fold position.

    I noticed this on my A6 Allroad 2020. In fact I thought the drivers door mirror was even hitting the chrome strip at first but it's on some kind of cam which Lifts it at the end of its fold. I mentioned this when it was in Audi West london and we had a walk around the car park and noticed all...

    21 inch wheel tire size thoughts?

    Thank you for your reply. That’s interesting regarding your stock tire size. Even the S6 has 245/40/21 with just a slightly different offset.

    50TDI Gearbox??

    I might add that around town I have found originally the efficiency setting was quite good but even running 21 inch wheels I now stick to dynamic and sport for the gearbox, the car has learnt my style and it's still supremely comfortable and smooth most of the time, occasionally I wish there was...

    50TDI Gearbox??

    You may have only had it two weeks but you might need to check the build date in the handbook. Many cars are coming out of stock and some were built as long ago as mid 2020 and have been sitting in storage, so unless yours was ordered especially that may be a consideration, you have to push the...
