Sporty Commuter — I've only had this car a little over six months so it's a little early to provide a great deal of feedback. Unfortunately this car was designed before aux I puts were common. Surprisingly, the Bluetooth works with my iphone. Phone only, no music. Overall I like it, but like I mentioned above, the front seats could be more comfortable.

Looks great and handles extremely well with the quatto AWD.  Very comfortable leather seats and plenty of legroom and storage.

Cons

The electronics are a little finicky.

Looks And Handles Great, Better Electronics Would Be Nice — The look of the Audi A6 is classic. It's sleek design with soft edges can turn heads. There's plenty of leg room and the room in the trunk is spacious. The AWD quattro makes driving it a lot of fun. What I wish it had was more reliable electronics.

Audi A6 — massive boot, safe to handle, very comfortable ride, lots of legroom for rear passengers, very stable on the road, great for long journeys, no external road noise, fairly economic on fuel, quality build materials, service expensive, cant trust dealer services, overall its a quality car, which is good for a family or executive.

2005 Audi A6 3.2 Quattro — The 2005 Audi A6 can be summed up in two words, luxurious fun. Back the car out of the garage and drive comfortably to work or the grocery store. Cruising speeds are easily reached with the 3.1L V6 direct injected engine (don't be fooled by the 3.2 badging). If you want to have more fun, simply press your foot to the floor and all 255 horses come to life and push you back in your seat. Now, it's not Lamborghini or Bugatti fast, but the Volkswagen Group has done a brilliant job trickling down technology to more pedestrian vehicles like the A6. Handling is spot on for daily driving and will handle just about anything you can throw at it with the help of Audi's Quattro AWD. Brakes are smooth and responsive with little fade. Visibility is very good and even better when the A6 is equipped with the backup camera. Optional adaptive headlights help with visibility at night, especially when taking it out for some evening canyon carving. Overall, Audi did a superb job with the styling and driving dynamics. This is a real winner for the everyday driver and when you want to have a bit of fun.

I Love It — this car is a good all rounder and very under stated for a diesel it's very quick at all speeds and with the sline pack it handles good it has top class build quality both inside and out i think it's good value for what you get

Reviewing My 2005 Audi A6 Quattro — Really enjoyed the car overall I would rate it a 8/9 out of 10. I've had three Audi's thus far: TT, A4 Avant (S-Line) and now the A6. I love the brand because it caters to folks that truly enjoy driving!

A6 Is Nothing But The Peak Of Automotive Excellence — after almost 3 years of amazing service my 2006 A6Q will be replaced by a 2008 A6Q S-line.... nothing more austere, safe, performing and luxurios and all the gadgets (except real time nav)

As Always..great Engine And Transmission...bad Electronics And Interior Design — Audi continues to manufacture a car with a great transmission, engine and all wheel drive. However, as a company they still wrestle with design and electrical problems. Unfortunately, Audi and its dealers are also unwilling to acknowledge and work with their customers when poor design or electronics come into play. In fact, it has been my experience on the last two A6's that I have leased (2005, 2001) that when problems are identified by the leasee, they are usually fixed only at the leasee's expense. Calls to Audi's customer sercices are akin to calling your local utility...the client is met with indifference and corporate attitude. It seems to me that Mercedes has been producing high quality and reliable cars for longer than Audi. I think I will further investigate my options when this lease is up. I have shared this with Audi and they best anyone at this company can say is that they are sorry. Sorry does not cover nor pay for poor designs that lead to costly repairs for the Audi client.
