2001 Audi A6 2.7 biturbo from North America


This car kicks butttt, unlike my old 2001 BMW, which was not reliable on snow, and had few electrical problems.

The only problem I notice on my Audi - the brakes make a noise when braking, but it's a minor thing that I am sure is fixable at low cost.

Everything else on this beautiful audi is excellent from take off to riding smooth, or feeling the turbos kick in is real nice. And the roomy interior is like riding in a 7 series.

General Comments:

I love this car. It's everything I wanted in an all year round car.

2001 Audi A6 2.7T 6 Speed Quattro 2.7L Twin turbo V6 from North America


A fast, luxurious, lithe Q-Ship


-Passenger side window rails were bad, cost $300 to fix them, but the job was done quick and the window works great now.

-Clutch began to slip after modifying the motor some and doing a bit of drag racing, probably wouldn't have happened if left stock. Car now has an RS4/Stage 2 clutch.

General Comments:

-The A6 is pretty quick stock, but my advice to anyone with a 2.7T motor is DO THE CHIP! The difference is night and day, car is making tons more power now. (I have the GIAC X Chip). It is now faster than my brother's modified 1998 BMW M3.

-The interior is great, very comfortable and great ergonomics, along with great build quality and good materials.

-The car is very quiet on the freeway and averages 21mpg overall.

-The car looks very nice, I get constant comments about how nice it looks (mine is Light Silver, with BBS rims and smoked taillights).

-The Quattro AWD and ESP really works, if you get a wheel loose or the car is pitching it kicks right in and rights the ship.

-The car is also a bargain used, I paid $21,000 for mine, as compared to over $30,000 for a lower line, slower BMW or Mercedes of the same vintage.

Have you had any problems with it? I'm looking in to one. Its kinda hard to find a 6 spd, but that's what I'm looking for.

Who can argue with 2 turbos and a roomy interior?


-Passenger window rolls up a bit slowly, and stuck down once, had to pull it up a little by hand until the motor took over and pushed it all the way up.

General Comments:

This is a wonderful car. I have the 2.7 twin turbo motor with 6 speed manual, it is a joy to drive. You can drive it as smoothly as any Rolls Royce around town, but punch it and let the turbos spool up (pretty instantaneous spool up) and it takes off like a rocket. It cruises at 100mph with total ease in 6th gear, and passing is no problem. The mileage is also very reasonable, at 21.4mpg average (and I drive fast and in town a lot).

The interior and stereo are great. The black leather seats are comfortable and roomy and there is lots of storage space. Both driver and passenger seats have memory as well, which is nice. The standard CD player and tape player are clear and offer plenty of adjustability (treble, bass, mid etc). The back seat is also very roomy and 5 adults can comfortably ride in the car.

The Xenon headlights and Quattro AWD make me feel really safe driving in even the wettest conditions. The A6 is very confidence inspiring. The ABS is also very good.

I only have 2 gripes with Audi in the design area. First of all, the shifter has sort of a long throw, not terrible, but shorter would be really nice. The other thing is that the car is a bit understated for how fast it is. They remedied this for 2002-2004 models with nice exposed tip dual exhausts (the 00-01 have dual exhaust, but the tips are hidden) and a nice facelift. I think with a light body kit, deck lip spoiler and some more thrust the car would look a lot musclier.

Overall a great car I recommend wholeheartedly, it's fast, fun and very luxurious all while being a very good deal used (mine cost just over 20k).

Anyone own a 2000-01 A6 with over 100K miles on it? I obviously realize that these are expensive cars to maintain regardless of mileage, but I've been looking at a 2000 A6 2.7T with all the bells and whistles, navigation, you name it, that is in absolutely immaculate physical condition listed at $12,000...but it has almost 119K miles on the clock. Should I be wary of any major problems that tend to arise in the A6's near this level of mileage, or would it be a decent buy? Only 12K for a 6-speed 2.7T A6 is tempting, to say the least...
