I wish I knew a fraction of what some of you guys and gals know, so just looking for opinions and comments please. Very happy with the A3, always wanted an A4 but now really think I will save my pennies for an A4/A6 Avant. What are your views on the pros and cons of the Allroad as opposed standard Avants?

The A6 Allroad came with standard adjustable-height Air Suspension, which gives a more comfortable ride - especially if you try to muck it up again with 35 section tyres on 20" alloys. . 

The disadvantage is that it is something else to go wrong. 

Adjustable suspension was an option on the A4 Allroad.

I am a loyal customer at my local main Audi dealer and found the support for issues with my Audi Approved Used car to be excellent.

I chose the allroad because I tow a caravan a fair bit, and I hate SUV/fake 4-wheel drive boxes....... the all wheel drive on wet grass is a life saver over front wheel drive vehicles, and the self levelling suspension makes towing at any time a dream ... add in the power and simplicity of control and it is probably the best towcar I have ever owned .. and I've had a few in the last 45 years !!

That's great feedback Entwood, thanks for taking the time.

Thanks John (beemerboy9), I'm not to far from Enfield (Goffs Oak) so hearing about the good support from local dealership is appreciated. Is that Chingford or another?

It is another branch of Group1 Automotive in Whetstone (Barnet). Group1 are huge in the USA and have been acquisitive over here. 

If you buy an Approved Used Audi (or VW) I have found that the Customer Services team are always ready to act as intermediaries. There were most helpful when my wife's Jetta lunched its engine (a known fault on the particular motor) at 55,000 miles.

With a customer services interaction a gentle approach helps. It did not help with Peugeot -  and I will not buy a French car ever again. Having said that, a friend has put over 750,000 miles on 2 Citroen C5's and loves them.
