I'd appreciate some thoughts on the engine choices in the A6 - I had an
early (1999) A6 Avant 2.5 v6 (Quattro) as the last company car which was a
very nice car indeed - I'm about to go back to a co car, like an A6 but the
available budget doesn't run to the 2.5 or any of the bigger engines. 2ltr
petrols are within reach, but I like diesels and the petrol CO2 doesn't look
Is the 1.9T a decent compromise, capable of pushing the car along at a
decent rate (lots of M/way, but also lots of A road) and I do like being
able to have some "omph" - or will it just leave me frustrated? 5 or 6 speed
box? It'll be a UK company car, so the CO2 emissions are important, and
chipping isn't going to be an option me thinks!
Or would it be better to go for the new A4 2.0 Tdi Avant.
An alternative would seem to be the Volvo V70 D5 Estate - views welcome!
Other ideas?? An estate is essential btw. Reliability is a crucial factor
It's been a while since I've had to tangle with the UK company car tax
situation, so all advice appreciated. I do have the option of "buy your own"
but that doesn't really stack up financially as far as I can see and with a
big mileage each year (40k) I'm not convinced its viable, especially as I
have to bear all costs.
