nice write up dippy
one lucky guy.

just one question:
looking at this image
http://img41.echo.cx/my.php?image=13333589ph.jpg
it seems that all controls are situated near gear shift
now wouldn't that be problematic while driving & trying to change those options?

nice report, dippy.... well done... you are one lucky fella..... there was an ad in the paper regarding the test drives of the A6; but i tried the number for a full hour, and couldn't get it...

nice write up, man. i like the audi too- would prefer it over a merc- but only the Quattros. the front wheel drives are ...well.. not exactly AS good as a merc... now only if the audis came with a rear-wheel drive/or AWD layout instead of the FrontWD or AWD (Quattro).....maybe they could've beaten merc, and would've ranked second only to BMW....

Seen this Audi A6 while coming back from Sanjay Dutt's residence. Also seen a black BMW 6 Series but couldn't get a pic. A friend managed to grab a video of it.

Good review,dippy. I've started respecting Audis after 'Transporter 2'.

I wonder which audi model was used in the movie. Hint: I noticed a W12 badge on the grille. Can anyone tell??

Hey Dippy! u lucky devil! when u buying the A6???

i wanted to know how much its costing?

from all the Audi vehicles, i have liked the Interiors of only the Audi TT till date, all other Audis, just dont have the classiness in its interiors! especially the Cabin design n layout.


Regd Volvo's well they surely are in the leagure of BMW, Mercs, Audis! i just love the Volvo's SUV! its so lovely and massive lookin!

Of all the Audi's, i love the A8 W12 and the A4.
I believe there is an Audi in Viper's building. An A6 in silver.
