    Just thought I would check in and share with you, the replacement for the VRS.

    Only 10 months old, but a high miler, ex rep car. All motorway miles, and at a significant discount to list price. Its barely boken in, in reality, and I am well chuffed.

    Audi A6 Avant Ultra 2.0 TDI 190 Ultra Black Edition.

    The car is miles away from what the Skoda and other VAG cars I have owned. Arm chair driving is about as close as I can compare it to. Believe it or not, I have yet give it the beans, I just haven't felt the need... yet....

    Considering its over 2 tons, it returns in excess of 50 mpg, which I need to make end meets, and getting almost 800 miles to a tank.

    Shod with 20's the ride is fairly sharp, but the comfort seats soak all that up.

    I picked up a karcher on the weekend, so will give her a rub down and post some better pics.

    I know theres a few on here who like the RS6, but this is as close as I am gonna get to one.

    Audi owners don't seem to do the waving thing..... o well!!

    800 miles to a tank, don't think i get a quarter of that lol.

    Those engines respond very well to a remap too ;)

    Yes, I am led to believe, you are very right. Additionally, the gear box also can be mapped, with a faster response time, and higher change points, with less tendancy to kick down. Replacement boxes do run into 4 figure sums though, so .....
    Unfortunate though it is, Preservation of the warranty is required at this point in time. Once the 60K, 3 yr thing is done.... we shall see. :) :)

    Very nice car Jim. We have a couple of A6's at work and they have been a great long term car. Our cars have racked up loads of miles and give us no real problems. A previous A6 covered well over 100,000 miles with nothing more than quality servicing and the general consumables.
