Seems daft doesn’t it.
It was about what I was willing to spend today vs what I’m happy to spend as extra in a few months. I set a budget on monthly loan repayments which didn’t extend to s-line pricing, but I can gradually ‘upgrade’ the body over time.
I'm saying goodbye to my much loved A7 50 S-Line and buying a second hand A6 40 Sport (4K). I need boot space (we got a dog since) and given the state of the world right now, I didn't want to take on another high value lease.
While I'm sure I'll be happy with the A6, the sport styling isn't...
This week, mine was in twice at Audi.
Initially to investigate / resolve:
Subwoofer intermittently not coming on - would not come back on following car off / on. It would need to be off for hours to work again. Audi are aware, no fix yet however.

I only use the standard mapping (not the satellite / google map) and find traffic data shows after maybe 1 minute or so.
I've had traffic data disappear on a journey before and not return, but since I had my A7 in for a software update (relating to the door locks, but I assume they update many...
Compared to my A4, the A7 gearbox feels sometimes like it waiting for a written request to take action, but you learn the quirks and counter them in driving style. It's disappointing but there are more ups and downs in the the A7.

The touch screens take a little time getting used to...
few thoughts from me after driving mine for a few weeks.
had parking sensor fault errors, no real reason for them. restarting the car clears them
central locking error,but they resolve themselves
sometimes the keyless entry get confused and needs a moment to sort itself out before i get in...
with all the hot weather i drove home today with my windows down to let the hot air out of my car. As i drove off and let my foot off the throttle, i heard what i can only describe as the sound of a dump valve. this only happened at certain revs, but i was surprised.
Have audi put some sort...
I'll be collecting my new a7 on Tuesday. Ahead of this i've been reading a few articles which state that the 21 inch wheels ruin the ride. Mine has 21 rims and i'm now worried.
Anyone own the a7 with the 21 inch wheels? What are your thoughts?
