In their own words

Bear in mind these cars were £30k+ new, so a full Audi or combined with Specialist history is essential. My preference is the 2.7Tdi V6 as it's over £200 pa less to tax than the 3.0Tdi and still has Quattro and Tiptronic which you want on such a big car. Avoid the front wheel drive Multitronic system as it's woeful and problematic. I didn't like the manual either due to offset on the pedals. The S-line cars have better specification with a sporty, yet executive look to them and have a nice presence. Plenty of choice out there and look for cars that were well optioned when new.. Adaptive Xenons, Bose surround, Auto open and closure tailgate is excellent! The Quattro models come with an 80L tank which is great for long haul. You can drive for hours without any fatigue when you arrive and I find it a very relaxing car to be in. Audi's updated MMI is far better than the BMW I-drive and very straightforward to get the hang of and very usable on the move. I also love the multi function steering wheel as it connects most features at your finger tips. My preference would be 18" alloys as the 19's do look lovely but excessive tyre noise and about £50 a corner more on tyres compared to the 18's. If you want a chunky bit of kit that feels top quality, keep your family safe and comfortable, loads of space etc. then this is for you... If you want something more sporty then it's the RS6 !!!

How reliable do you find the car?

Excellent Audi build quality. Always buy the 2009 onwards model as it has a number of important updates like the MMI system.

Does the car do everything you expected it to do?

Great for long motorway journeys, very comfortable. Easy around town given its size. Quattro for me every time and V6 TDi with the Tiptronic is sublime.
