Audi A6 2.7 TDI

Posted (8 years 1 month 3 days 23 hours ago) and read 3610 times:

I'm very excited to get my new car on Friday morning  Wink I bought an A6 2.7 TDI with full opitions and I will get it by the end of the week! On the other hand Im still a bit worried cos I was hesitating between the 3.0 liter of 2.7 but I choosed the 2.7 thinking that this must be sufficient regarding power & economie! What do you think, did I make the right choice or should I have invested some more Euros and go with the 3.0 TDI or should I maybe consider one day a chiptuning? What do you think about the A6 in general compared to BMW 5 or Mercedes E class? Every comments are very welcome  Smile

I wouldn't be too worried about lack of power vs the 3.0.
It'll turnout to be an as effective driver license shredder.
Also it'll probably be a tad more economic (I think).

Well, it's certainly a darn good-looking car (but then, I've liked Audi styling for decades). I'm thinking that you'll appreciate the overall performance with the 2.7 too; so I say "good choice!" for this class vehicle. Regards...jack

Cptkrell, thats what the dealer told me that the overall performance isnt too bad compared against the 3.0 TDI! For sure the last one will be faster but in daily use I dont think that the difference will be that significant!
Hey L410Turbolet, why not? Is it that bad for the engine?

Congratulations!!! I am sure it is a nice car, it looks very nice indeed!  Smile

You should have test driven both before making your decision. Only you will know whether 2,7liter diesel is sufficient as you are the one who will be driving the car  Smile

AirPacific747, thx much  Smile Ha, the best thing is that I will pick it up in Germany that makes it even more exciting but I think that I need to train my selfcontrol that day cos I dont wanna go up to speeds above 140 or 150 km/h the first day with a brandnew car on the autobahn  Smile

Haha I understand why Big grin

My father is getting the Q7 mid November, but we were told that it was built last week so it is standing somewhere down in Germany and is waiting to be shipped to Denmark where it will be refitted first before we get it  Smile

I'm very excited about that as well!

It cuts down the engine's useful life.
If you look on the classic VW 1.9 TDI engine, you can get it in 66kW, 74kW, 81kW, 96kW versions. The difference in 66kW and 96kW is not just different chip but also completely different turbo, air inlet, and other components. I'd simply have more faith in Audi with all their technology and resources they have to design the engine than someone with just "hammer and screwdriver" doing some magic with my engine (this is of course not the case if you are thinking about having some manufacturer-certified tuning from company like ABT, which specializes in Audis). But then with ABT you are likely to fork out more money than what is the difference between the two engines in question.
How much is the difference in price of the 2.7 TDI (with solid particle filter?) and the 3.0 TDI quattro wherever you are buying it? Over here it's approx. 5,700 EUR. Is it worth the money?  Confused
The only reason I'd think about the 3.0 would be because it's quattro and the price difference between 2.7 quattro and 3.0 quattro is minimal (40EUR to be exact).
In either case I'd take the version with solid particle filter.
If you want more expert opinion on chiptuning I'm sure there are plenty of Audi-fan websites where you will get more info and insight. I was just offering my opinion.
In any case I think you chose a great car and I hope you'll enjoy it.

L410Turbolet, the new models from now on (at least in Germany) are all delivered with the solid particle filter! U cant get it without overhere (thats what my dealer told me) Ur right the price difference isnt that big and anyway what makes the car expensive are the options! Damn, in those Audi's you have to pay for everything! The way I wanted the car I had to add around 16-17000 euros more and thats completely crazy but that was also one of the reason why I finaly choosed the 2.7 well at a certain moments u have to do some sacrifice. I wanted nice 18 inch wheel, lowered s-line chassis, xenon plus lights,leather and navigation with dvd and so on so I decided to go with the less powerfull engine and invest the difference in options I realy want to have.

Well, a friend of mine bought the new Passat 2.0 TDI (140 PS) and he did the tuning at our local Audi dealer and the cost where around +/- 700,- Euros and now his car has about180 horsepower with a guarantee from the Audi dealer so that was the reason I was thinkin that maybe in the near future I will go for it! They told me that the power will go up from 180 hp to 230 hp and that for a price of 700 and all build in at Audi! I think thats much less than the difference in list price between both cars! But as u said Im a bit worried that the lifespan of the engine could be reduced but I will try to find more info on that!
Anyway, I think that I will have gud fun with that car! I just luv the way it looks but again thats very personal!
AirPacific747, my congrats to you too and ps dont forget to tell me how it drives  Wink

Ur right, it isnt a sportscar but that I knew before buying it! If I wanted to go for performance at first place than I would have choosen the 4.2 ltr V8 engine but its all a question of money and economics! But dont tell me that it is a fuel waster cos that I wouldnt believe you!

Congrats, you bought a very, very nice car! I drove exactly the same car for a few times already and it was always a pleasure!

My family has become an "Audi Fan Club" lately, my father (A8), his company car fleet (A6 and A4 station waggon), my cousin (A3), her husband (A4 convertible), and my grandfather (A4) are driving an Audi at the moment and they are more than pleased. I am waiting for my new car currently, also an Audi (A4 convertible). Big grin

I like to drive all of the aforementioned cars of my family, Audi is building very nice cars and they have a way better customer servive than this Mercedes shit or BMW (which are on the same level than Audi).

Soft and way under powered.

Underpowered? You can't be serious, my father's company has the very same car (A6, 2.7 TDI, 180 hp, multitronic gear) and I am driving it frequently. I really like it and it is no way underpowered IMO.

Maybe I'm a little unfair to the Audi. I find it under powered compared to the vehicle I drive when not in an Audi

Anyway Luxair - regardless of the power issue, satisfy yourself in the knowledge that you are sitting in an Audi - in the best interior made by any mass market car manufacturer.  Smile
