    Glad you got the repair sorted, what a sickened that must've been.
    Very exciting, just a pity it'll be dark when I pick it up.

    Really like the silver, looks very striking, and they've done a good job with the finish. The black also looks good; I like black, when they are polished well, they look so good. Trouble is, especially in this weather, how long are your cars going to stay shiny :anguished:

    I've had 3 black cars on the run and they are hard to keep clean.

    Totally agree had a black Passat and it was hellish. Ceramic coatings really do help though but it's still not easy. My S5 is Daytona grey and I've found that to be a great colour.

    Well folks I like the wifes A6 so much I am looking into one as a replacement for my S5 come July when my lease ends. Whilst I love the S5 fuel and insurance costs continue to go skyward!
    Looking at the saloon 50tdi in daytona with extended led. With a DTUK tuning box it will be at 330 bhp and 516 lb ft so performance will be pretty strong and economy much better than the S5. For me though its the ride on the A6 that continues to surprise especially on our broken roads and its the main thing that has me sold.
    I must be getting old when ride quality is top of the list!

    It is very true. A noticeably more comfortable ride than my A4. Even the kids notice it, but I suppose they are in the back so maybe pick up on these things a bit more.

    I love the irony in that I bought a pair of slippers from Costco today. Anyone know a good pipe store?

    I was surprised how comfortable the ride is on the standard 19's. Wonder if the ride is as good on 20's?

    I am looking at 3 options all the 50tdi - A7 at 398 a month, A6 saloon 362
    Normally I like going for the big wheels but the 19" look fine i think and I wouldnt risk ruining the ride. One thing I would really miss from my S5 is the HUD, pan roof and B&O sound I can do without. HUD is nearly £1,500 now and its just too expensive.

    Wow £1450 for the HUD. Never had one so wouldn't really appreciate the benefit. That's pretty steep.
    What annoys me most is not having full leather as standard on a car costing around 50k.

    Very true. I think because the screen is lower than my S5 the HUD would be extra beneficial but like you say way to expensive. It was £900 for my S5 so the options have seen a hike across the board although B&O sound has gone up by only £50.
    If I end up sorting an A6 tech pack is a must but outside that maybe just a colour and extended LED. Daytona Grey has been a great colour and I would definitely have it again despite it being quite common on Audis. Navarra Blue might of tempted me but not an option on the new A6.

    The blue that you can order (Firmament Blue) is almost black. I don't know if you can order non-standard colours through Audi Exclusive any more? I've seen C8's in Sepang Blue on YouTube, but they were German vehicles so may have a different options path?

    I would probably go with Daytona its quite good for keeping clean and it changes quite a lot depending on the light. Given we have the saloon A6 at the min I really want an avant for myself but £55 a month more. Hmm!

    £2100 extra for an Avant, do without the HUD and it's down to £650 :tonguewink:

    Had a scary moment when I started the car this evening, had warning messages about errors in high beam assist, lane assist and pre-sense systems. The manual said these can be caused by a dirty windscreen in front of the camera. My screen was clean, but I was parked under a big strip light in a multi storey car park. The light must have been blinding the camera, as soon as I drove away, the messages vanished :sweatsmile:

    The HUD's are expensive because, if anything like the A4, a special windscreen has to be fitted...

    Yep was simply saying £900 to £1450 is a fair jump.

    Got my 40TDI S-Line saloon last week, and echo some of the comments regarding the ride, really is fantastic, have to say very tyre dependant though. Test drove one with Pirelli P-zeros and mine was delivered with Michelin PS4,s and its much nicer on the Michelins, also, found using comfort tyre pressures (32 all round) makes a big difference. Super impressed with the car, serene, and the new 2.0TDI is incredibly smooth and refined, not just for a 4 pot diesel, but period!, plenty of performance which is a surprise, was expecting it to feel like a slug!

    Totally agree the ride is such a surprise for a modern Audi. Plus the 40tdi is ample and I am debating if there is a need to consider the 50tdi

    Get you about questioning the 50TDI, mainly due to the better 7 speed DSG, previous generations would never have dreamed of recommending a 4 cyl diesel over a V6 or straight 6, but this really is that good!, plus there's a certain smugness averaging over 50mpg without trying

    I've been a bit disappointed with my consumption, struggling to get low 40s around town. Only done 700 miles so I suppose it'll loosen up.

    I’m sure it will loosen up, for me low 40’s around town is revelation, especially for something so big and heavy andcoming from a Golf R!, only annoyance so far is the slightly abrupt nature of the stop start kicking in, dies out smoothly enough, only thing that spoils the refinement a bit!

    Just got 51.1 coming home from work with a/c off, heating on 24c, supplemental heater on, drivers seat heater on full, with drive select in efficiency mode. That's more like it!
