1995 Audi A6 Quattro 2.8 from North America
Great driving car with high maintenance
The engine sounds like it has a piston slap on cold startup.
It goes away after about a 1 minute warmup.
Our Audi mechanic does not know what the problem is, because it doesn't happen on every cold startup.
We are wondering if this is just the design of the engine for our year, or is there something very wrong here?
I am looking for a response from other Audi owners.
Last year I had the dash odometer light replaced and now the outside temperature light in the dash is burned out. The mechanic said this one is not a bulb and costs $165 for the part plus labor, and that I should replace the transmission position light the same time. That part is $175 plus labor.
Great touring car with comfort.
You feel safe at high speeds with how it holds the road.
On the low end the car is slow.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

The light bulbs required for the backlighting in the temp, trip computer and selector position displays ARE ordinary bulbs - 'grain of wheat' type 12V 50mA. They cost about 25p (USD 0.40) and are available in any electronic suppliers.
The procedure is well documented on the following website:
