New Audi A6 allroad Quattro
Audi has unveiled its new A6 Allroad. It's the third iteration of the
taller-riding A6, which sits halfway between estate and SUV.
It rides 60mm higher than a standard A6 Avant, and gets four-level adaptive
air suspension as standard. As you'd hope, quattro all-wheel drive is
fitted to all models. It also looks noticeably butcher than other A6s
thanks to extended side sills, flared wings, a new grille and roof rails.
Initially, there's three engine choices, all V6s, with one petrol-powered
unit -- a 306bhp/325lb ft 3.0-litre TFSI, capable of 31.7mpg -- and two
diesels, 201bhp/332lb ft and 241bhp/428lb ft tunes of 3.0-litre TDI, the
most frugal of which tops 46mpg. All engines boast turbocharging and direct injection, and are linked
to a seven-speed S-tronic twin-clutch gearbox. Expect an ultra-brisk A6
Allroad equipped with Audi's 309bhp twin-turbo 3.0-litre V6 TDI at a later date, serving up
a 5.6sec 0-62mph sprint via an eight-speed Tiptronic transmission.
The four-wheel-drive system is permanent and paired with torque vectoring,
which brakes the wheels on the inside of corners to Boost traction. Audi's sport differential --
which varies power continually between the rear wheels during cornering --
is on the options list.
The adaptive air suspension lowers the Allroad's body by 15mm at speed, and
can jack it up by 35mm when rougher terrain approaches. There's also a hill
descent control system for, you guessed it, downhill off-road driving.
Inside, there's the usual plethora of Audi gadgetry on offer, with Bang and
Olufsen sound, in-car WLAN internet access, radar-based cruise control and
a self-parking system among the options.
Expect a wealth of tech options box ticking to substantially add to the A6
Allroad's list price, though, the range starting at a very reasonable
£43,145. UK sales begin in February, with deliveries in spring. Expect to
see the A6 Allroad making its publich debut at the 2012 Geneva motor show

The AllRoad has street tires but a strong V8 and great AWD, the Aztek has
all terrain tires but an underpowered engine and weak AWD system.
Audi Allroad Headlight Repair
This is a quick video a have made to demonstrate how easy it is to repair
the appearance and performance of the Audi Allroad's Headlights.
This will work on most headlight lenses with a similar design. This method
requires use of a number of different grades of sandpaper to remove Pitts

steps, a polish and finally applying a UV Coat to restore to almost
This was a very cheap headlight repair kit purchased from my local auto
parts store, This particular one set me back $50.
Remember the last step is most important. Take care applying UV coat it
drys very quickly and i think i applied too much, which caused a slight
oily film under close inspection.
I'm posting this to help save you guys from forking out big bucks on new
headlights, and I remember how hesitant I was to attack the Audi with
Good Luck with the restoration

2014 BMW M5 Competition vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S Model! - Head 2 Head Ep. 44
On this episode of Head 2 Head Jonny Lieberman is joined by Mike Shaffer
and two extremely potent hyper sedans, the 2014 BMW M5 Competition and the
2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S Model. Between the two of them, these two
mighty Germans produce 1152horsepower and 1092
pound-feet of torque. On paper. After a day of horsing around/testing
Shaffer and Lieberman grow suspicious of each twin-turbo V-8's actual output. So, they take them to
the Dyno gurus at K&N
engineering to learn what's what. The results very well may shock and amaze
you. However, the boys come to the conclusion that numbers are only exactly
that: only numbers, and numbers only matter so much. One true test of a
super sedan is how it handles a twisting stretch of tarmac. The other is
how much you yearn for the car after you've walked away from it. How much
the keys itch in your pocket. While the results are definitive, this Head 2
Head is much closer than most. Have a watch!
Head 2 Head appears every other Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.
