Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed my weekend read of the quattro special edition of Audi Driver . Thanks for selecting my car to join the other equally impressive looking quattros.
Another quite amazing twist is that I referred to my daily driver in the article as an #Audi-A6-4.2-S-line . This magazine made me look into the reprints of previous road tests run by Audi Driver as I fancied looking back at the #Audi-A6-4.2 review.
I found in my old magazine archive (a box in the loft!) the November 2005 edition, and to my utter astonishment, my car is the actual car you tested and wrote a six-page review about back in 2005! OY54 MVC is sat on my drive (albeit with my private plate now). It is still an amazing car and in superb original condition. It looks no different to the #2005 article, a testament to Audi.Stream item published successfully. Item will now be visible on your stream.

Lots of miles have been put on the A6 and it’s even been treated to some posh fuel…
It’s been another manic month at AT Towers, so the A6 has been busy getting me around the UK. I did treat the 3.0 V6 to a full tank of #Shell-V-Power-Nitro+ diesel on my trip to the Richter Sport open day though. During the 80-odd mile blast to Milton Keynes, it did feel lively. That said, although there’s evidence to prove the performance benefits of using this fuel, whether you can actually feel it in treat world conditions is debatable. It did however appear to produce less smoke under load and felt like it was running slightly smoother. The MPG also seemed slightly improved – even though I was booting it on the quiet roads. Some proper testing would need to be carried out to make any definitive judgement. If any readers have feedback about Shell Nitro+ diesel, drop me an email.
I’m still researching colours for a vinyl wrap as every time I look at the black paintwork, there appears to be another little mark on it. The latest was caused at the Castle Combe Action Day, when my fiveyear old decided to ‘help’ by dragging the pram out of the boot and scraped it over the bumper in the process. Bless him! Mind you, I saw a brand new SQ5 the other day and the owner was letting their wet spaniel run all over the seats. Can you imagine what those sharp claws and muddy paws would do to the leather and trim on the centre console?! It made me wince just looking at it – it’s a £45k car!
Although we’re into show season now, I’m hoping to find time to get the A6 moving tuning wise. More next month.Stream item published successfully. Item will now be visible on your stream.
