Finally done it.

A mere 5 years after first asking about an A6 3.0 TDi, then going off and getting a 530d due to finances, we've finally come back to the fold.

We've just done a deal on a lovely looking 58 plate Misano Red 3.0 TDi Le Mans Avant.

Couldn't have picked a more perfect car if we'd ticked the options box ourselves.

Hopefully pick it up next weekend once finances are sorted.

It's an auto.

Couple of questions though.

I've currently got a set of winter wheels and tyres for the Beemer.

I'd like to make use of them if possible. But they're 16" wheels. These fit perfectly on the Beemer, but would they clear the brakes on the A6?

I know the PCD is different, and converters seem overly expensive so if 16" would fit (and I could re-use my tyres) what sort of wheels (off-set etc) would I need to look out for?

Thanks in advance.

I saw this when you posted it on facebook and was so shocked to see someone buy an A6 in a nice colour I just couldnt post, i think they look great in the brighter colours, but you see sooo many dull ones - fab choice +++ (even if it is an Audi :P)

Info you want is (It sys 94 on because I dont think in almost 20 years its actually changed:

Audi Model : A6 Year : 94> PCD : 5x112 Offset : 35 to 45 Bore : 57.1 Fittings : B 14x1.5

Suggested: 15" 2056015 16" 2055516 17" 2254517 18" 2354018 19" 2353519 20" 2253520

I can't find anythign at work to suggest that since 2005 there has been any wheel fitted to an A6 from factory smaller than 17", so i doubt you will be able to use the 16" tyres. The audi accessories brochure only lists winter tyres for teh A6 from 17" as well.

Thanks Chris.

Really wanted a red one and when this came up, we couldn't believe our luck.

Will probably kill us come resale, but at least we get to enjoy it.

Had a chat with a guy at our local Audi dealer and he suggests that 17" 7J with an offset of ET42 will work.

Also said that wheels that size are unavailable to order from Audi.

I'm just trying to confirm from anyone that has a Le Mans whether a 17" 7.5J ET45 wheel would work. As this seems to be a very common size and there are loads of styles on eBay.

Nah, looks great, get some light tints on it and it will finish it off a treat.

My S4 avant was red and all my mates said I was mad, then when they saw it they all loved it.

Red tends to work on Audi Avants with the silver rails etc.

I really wanted a Noggy blue, but tbh I just couldn't bring myself to buy a red one, there was a local car for sale when I was looking. I must say the pics you took of yours (for the short time you had it!) were gorgeous - especially the interior at night with the RNSE, carbon and full black leather
