    So as I have my first child on the way I've been considering change my A6 saloon for something more practical, after much consideration I decided on exactly the same car in avant guise

    It's strange how some of the spec differs from the saloon, different front bumper, different interior lights and no memory/elec seats

    Tempted to get an RS6 grille so open to options/advice on this, apart from that the car is pretty much complete for my needs!

    There was MY17 model update, so memory seats, folding mirrors and (one other option which I cannot remember) came as standard for both saloon and Avant

    Register on myaudi, download to an sd card, plug into car, run update

    Or if you have a sim in the car you can do it over air, but it’s 19gb for Europe lol

    Only if you have a facelift vehicle and the tech pack. Otherwise the only official route is via the dealer and costs upwards of £150. Also you only get 5 free updates over the first 3 years of the vehicles life

    Oh well, I don’t tend to use the sat nav anyway

    Does anyone know if the S-Line badges are stuck or pinned?

    quick update, nothing major changed, fitted the black rings from my saloon to the front, removed all other badges completely - but the rear left a raised imprint? so i have added a black rear badge

    got a couple of wrap ideas to tweak the look slightly...

    Do you get 5 free upgrades for sd card version or do you have to pay? Mine is two years old and is stuck on 2017 maps. Purchased from the dealer direct.

    Yes you can but you will need to visit the dealer to get the card activated for your vehicle
