    Rear view mirror vibrating- especially with Bose ;)

    Picked up my A6 BE on the 2nd of June and I'm loving it- the only minor problem is the rear view mirror does vibrate on less than perfect roads but it's generally terrible when the music is on- more so when my house music is playing ;) Is it a common issue or not?

    2016 A6 C7 Black edition or 2016 B9 A4?

    I just cannot make my mind up! The C7 is so perfect (BE especially!)- even more so for a family of 4 (could be 5 soon!), the looks, the extras (Matrix lights, self park etc) but the B9 is obviously a current model. It'd 'only' be an S line and 'basic' S line spec. The B9 forum folk might be a...

    Wanting to start a big project! But need to understand wheels?

    I like the S4 Peelers - I understand they'll fit nicely as they are made for the B8 being 19s, ET43 and 8.5J but worried they're going to leave a bit of a 'gap'. On the other hand getting the S5 ones seem a bit tricky- they fill the arch width nicely but you seem to need the exact right tyre...

    Wanting to P/X my B8.5 to a B8- How reliable is the B8 in comparison?

    I have a 2013 B8.5 but would like to chop it in for an all road. That one is an 2009 one though- but well cared for. Are B8's as bad as I have been reading?

    Should the coolant temp gauge stay at 90c on 2.0TDI B8.5?

    New car to me, 13 plate- was on the motorway and it stayed at 90c but then when I'm on normal city roads it went to down a bit..... Does that sound normal?

    Potential discount on approved used Audi's?

    My dad has seen two nice 150 TDI priced at £22,000 and £23,000 at main dealers. What sort of money have dealers got to play with? Can't imagine it being much but would it be up to £1,000?

    Thought I'd start a new thread - financing!

    Whats the best of financing that car? Audi's APR is way too high but they have deposit contributions. Could my dad take the finance out with Audi initially, borrow the money from a low APR lender and pay Audi finance off?

    Which engine- 1.4TSI vs 2.0TDI vs 1.6TDI

    Convinced my dad to get an A3 but he is budget conscious- I would have advised the 184 but that's too rich for him! He will be doing anything between 15k and 20k miles a year and the 1.4 Petrol TSI seems a decent bet for everyday motoring. 150PS and high MPG due to cylinder deactivation...

    My B6 passed its MOT with no advisories yesterday!

    Just thought I'd share- as I'm shocked! Over 191k miles and nothing, nothing wrong with the car! The specialist told me he thought the car had been clocked forwards- said under the car was so clean he couldn't believe it! Bought this car as a bit of a gamble last year and so far it has paid off...

    Another catastrophy! Bright green leaking from radiator/condenser area?

    I had a new condenser fitted just before I left for a holiday 3 weeks ago and noticed today that green liquid is leaking on the floor. Is it likely to be condenser?

    My A4 will not start after only being away 19 days??

    Battery was replaced on 30/03/2012 and I had left no lights or anything on. Does this seem to be about right?
