This is my 7th Audi of the A6/100/5000 mid-line. Traded in my 2005 A6 4.2 Quattro. The 2012 A6 is markedly improved. The ride is better, the cabin quieter and the fuel economy is slightly improved. The MMI continues to exasperate, but offers great added features like Google Maps, real time traffic and easy to use Bluetooth connectivity for my Blackberry. My wife really like the hotspot feature so she can use her iPad 2 as we cruise along. I like being able to load my music on 2 SD card slots. Today was the first rainy day in LA, and I discovered a problem with the wipers - the residual blade load is deposited right in front of the driver and must await the next blade cycle to be removed. I have NEVER been in a car where the blades left a wipe load right in the drivers line of sight. Causes eye strain as your eyes try to focus on the road ahead but get distracted by the blade wash very close up. Luckily I live in LA where it hardly ever rains, but word to the wise for those who live in other climates. Given the car was made in Germany, this defect is astounding. This car is faster 0-85 or 90 than my 2005 V8. Gas mileage so far has been about 22 mpg combined. The full LED light package is awesome and a real attention getter - sometimes not always a good thing. Front parking proximity sensor is great to have. MMI has too many steps, it should default to your radio station presets rather than giving you a scan of what is available. Takes 3 steps to get to my favorite morning drive station. The tried and true Audi Quattro all wheel drive remains the standard of comparison. Being able to fold the rear seats down for added carrying capacity is a plus - one of the reasons I did not buy an Acura RL. The blind spot sensor is a plus. Caveat: I have had this car for less than 2 weeks so I will update this review in about 6 months. Given my experience with my previous 6 Audi's I anticipate a mostly positive longer term review.
