Hello and welcome to chapter 2 of adventures in reliable transportation (see chapter 1 here). In this instalment I give you this fine example of a fully depreciated luxury sedan, this full size, this four door, this Audi A6.

Specs:
2005 Audi A6 3.2L FSI Quattro
Oyster Grey Metalic
Sport package
Cold weather package
Premium sound
Bi -xenon with AFS
113k miles
Check engine light: on.

First order of business was the headlights, these had some of the worst fogging I've ever seen.

It took about an hour per light, started with 800grit, then 1k, then 2k, then a plastic polish, and finished with a bit of wax.

It's not perfect but its a huge improvement and should get me by until I have a chance to shoot them with some clear coat.

I'll update this thread as I fix the things that that have gone wrong with it (and what ever else self destructs along the way).

How much did you pay? These kinds of threads are best supplemented with numbers so we can all go "wow, he has total comfort and luxury for the price of a TV!"

Not a bad price. As for the plate filler, go with the simple one. Once you start doing RS grilles it's a slippery slope on performance looking mods on a non-performance oriented car and that's when it goes from classic to clapped out.

The tiptronics get sticky servo valves in the valve body, and the Torque Converter seals leak. You can keep it in manual mode to mask some of the issue.

Technically the gearboxes are fine. You can replace the valves alone, but it's difficult to figure out which one you need. And the TC fix is pricey. Will make you strongly consider a manuel swap.
