I have travelled the same path - Dec 31 bought a 2-14 A6 Prestige, Daytona Grey, Black Optics, and this is also the first Automatic car I have owned. I was driving a 2002 VW Passat 1.8T Manual, in fact I still have it, trying to find an VW enthusiast who would appreciate a well-cared for low mileage car. My wife keeps nagging me to take it to carmax so we don't leave it parked in the driveway.
At times I feel the A6 is a bit too refined for my driving style and I park it and drive around in my Passat, and quickly realize that the A6 is in a world of its own in terms of comfort and effortless power. I still shift gears once in a while when I come to a stop - from drive to neutral! but I think I am getting used to it.
Thanks...I really knew I wanted the Nougat...definitely didn't want the Beige. Probably the one option I would have wanted was the Sport package for the paddle shifters and the 19" wheels. Overall though this is exactly what I wanted.
After getting this car I drove my wife's 2012 Subaru Outback...I thought that car was really nice compared to my '02 A6 but after driving in my '13 A6 you realize what a step up the Audi's interior is over other cars/
One really pleasant surprise is the gas mileage after the first fill-up...after traveling 460 miles I calculated 25.8 MPG...better than I ever attained in the '02 A6. Wasn't expecting that.
