Hi guys, does anyone have one? The 311ps engine.
I'm looking to part ex my 3.0tdi A4 for one and want to know how they compare really.

I'll take a look at the nearest centres then! They look more luxurious than the A4. The exhaust noise, I presume it's amplified somehow?

We had a 3.0TDi 2008 A6, and now a 2012 BiTDI. The difference in engine is huge. Smoother, quieter and a lot faster. Car is lovely too. A huge step up from an a4, no question

Another one here with one, utterly lovely car.
The Torque is endless and works well with the box, and for a big car it's pretty good on a back road blast.

Even without the sound generator in the exhaust it does sound good, but as others have said its a laugh with it on, had a couple of people comment about they thought it was a V8 hahah, overrun in Dynamic mode can generate "exhaust cackle", it may be false but it's no worse than sticking an aftermarket exhaust on for extra noise just a techy way of doing it instead.

I've yet to see any real maintenance costs but talking with the local dealer before hand it's the same as all the other 3.0ltrs, even the monster brakes aren't that pricey to change, depending on the spec you get (recommend a BE ;-) ) the 20" wheels can be an "ouch" moment when looking at tyres but shopping around gets the price down.
You do need a good run to get the fuel economy, round town does expect much more than 20-25.

Have fun hunting :)

S6 is different proposition. The rarity of the car is helping residuals, but they don't sell quickly as it has higher running costs, but either BiTDI or S6 is good investment. If you don't need the diesel, the extra spec for the S6 is worth the price difference. Better seats, suspension, brakes all add up to make like for like very similar price to BiTDI. Whatever you get, spec matters for resale.

I am thinking of trading my A6 BiTDI for an S8 if you're interested ;)

Sent PM. I've seen the S6 (if it's the Autotrader one) and it's been reduced to that price (was over £40k).

What are BiTDI's going for now? Ours is a June 2012; S-Line with lots of options... 38k on the clock.
