if you are of mechanical mind then its just a case of look and feel. Some tools (special or home made) may be required. I think the pistons might be of the type that require rotation while compressing them back in........others might comment on this.
It you are at all NON technical then the shop it is.

The A4 has that type of piston and I'd expect the A6 to also have it. When I did the rears on my A4 a couple of years ago, Autozone lent me the tool for free. Having that tool makes it a lot easier. Apart from that the procedure was pretty easy as Audi repair goes.
