Summary:

Great luxury value at mid-level prices

Faults:

Gone Wrong; Car runs great, but is coming up with lots of aesthetic issues. Front Passenger window is cut from something digging into it as it lowers into the door. Brakes light LED's are burning out. Headlight washers are inoperable. Trip computer has dead pixels all over it. Brakes are pulsating at lower speeds. I was told it is b/c my rims were installed improperly, but then I read many similar critiques...hmm, do we all have the same rims? Haven't had the service appointment yet, ill update the review after they do (or refuse to do) all the warranty work.

General Comments:

Engine runs like a dream. Fast smooth and comfortable. Can't wait to get a chip in there and see what it can really do. (Trying to decide between APR and GIAC) The interior is immaculate and much more comfortable than the 5 series bmw. I compared to 530i...Audi has more HP, turbo, all wheel drive, and is significantly cheaper. Great buy, ill hook this car up and keep it for a while. Has a style that can be modified, but still look dignified. With a chip and intake alone, you can have it pushing 325HP. NICE.

I have a 2000 A6 2.7T with the 93 octane APR chip package which includes (2) new turbo valves and a K&N filter. It's great. The car was already very fast, but now it has more torque. It behaves as usual until you get on the gas, then the difference really comes through. I have always maintained it and changed the timing belt. It's a lot of fun, and it never seems to run out of power.

Faults:

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.

Summary:

A fast, luxurious, lithe Q-Ship

Faults:

-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.
