    What do you keep in your boot? I have had my A6 for 2 weeks and did the weekly shop. What annoyed me was that one bag opened up and all my shopping went everywhere. I had to dive into the boot much to my wifes amusement. Do you have a boot liner or have the anti slip liner in yours?

    What products do you use to polish the badge to a very high shine? I am aware that the Audi doesnt have that many shiny parts bar the alloys. My audi rings look a bit tired and would love to have an idea what you guys tend to use to bring it up a notch. Cheers
