S6s came pretty well equipped as standard, but this example has plenty of optional equipment. Standard equipment includes front & rear parking sensors, cruise control, sat nav, Bose speakers etc. This example was also specified with adaptive bi-xenon headlights, DAB radio, a Digital TV tuner, electric heated front memory seats, heated rear seats and keyless access & keyless start.
I looked at 5 or 6 examples of these before buying mine, so I do know them fairly well, what stood out about my one is the lack of squeaks and rattles from the interior, it feels very solid and well cared for.
Mechanically my car is sound, I used it as my daily driver between October last year and June of this year, in that time I did almost 12,000 miles including a road trip across Ireland, it has never put a foot wrong. The engine and gearbox are smooth and quiet, with no untoward noises from the suspension or brakes. The only times it needed special attention were a weak battery over the winter and a hole developing in the flexi-pipe in the front section of the exhaust, both of these have been rectified and replaced with genuine Audi parts.
The body is in excellent condition with lovely glossy paintwork, there are no dents or scuffs on the body. There is however a small scratch (pictured) on the lower part of the drivers door, it hasn’t bothered me and I suspect it will polish out. On the rear corner of the roof, on the drivers side, there is a small (50p size) section where the lacquer has lifted. These are only minor and the car does look really great overall.
The wheels look presentable, but upon close inspection would benefit from a refurb, the fronts in particular have some kerb damage, the worst is pictured.
The interior is in very good condition, but being picky a few buttons are showing signs of age. The one let down is the drivers seat bolster, I suspect a previous owner may have been quite a portly individual and has worn the bolster. There are no rips or tears, but there is a small hole the width of a pencil (pictured), I'm sure with a little love it will look great again. The other seats are all in great condition and the carbon fibre trim is in excellent condition, totally scratch free.

No doubt I’m going to be asked about mpg, typically it’s been around 18-20, with mid-20s possible on a run.
It’s been a complete dream come true owning and running this car, with none of the horror stories many of the forums talk about. When you talk to owners of these cars you begin to appreciate it’s a very under-stressed engine, built specifically for the S6 and S8. It is not, as some say, a Lamborghini engine. You’ll find happy owners of cars that have passed 170,000 miles with no dramas. I wish I could keep it but a new job and 200 mile a day commute mean I’ve now got a diesel Golf company car and sadly don’t have a reason to use the S6 anymore.
I’ve been very fair describing the car, there will be no surprises for anyone who comes to view it. I hope I can sell it to someone who will continue to love it and enjoy it as much as I have.
A few requests from me to interested parties, because we all know how painful advertising cars can be:
-Please don’t waste my time, only enquire if the car is in your budget and you’re interested in purchasing it. If you’re asking will I take £8,000 for it, the car isn’t in your budget.
-Read the advert fully before asking me questions I’ve already answered here
-Test drives will be conducted by me only
The car is based near Liphook, Hampshire just off the A3, viewings can be arranged for evenings and weekends. It may also be possible to view the car near my work in Milton Keynes, but collection will be from Liphook.
Thanks for taking the time to read my advert.
