Default My S6 arrived!

2014 S6 with Ibis/B&O/Black Diamond seats/Alcantara/

I just had Opticoat Pro put on the car within the first 75 miles... Its shining like crazy!

Going NUTS trying to find suitable snow tires... about to give up and just try for next season.. since bad weather in Chicago is almost over.

Any other S6 owners in Chicago feel free to say hi! Im excited learning a lot from your posts...

Congrats! Nice and shiny. I don't think Chicago Winter weather is going away anytime soon. Even if there is no snow, the car will perform better with snow shoes if the temps stay below the 40s. The next Polar Vortex from our Canadian friends on its way.

Bridgestone Blizzak LM-32

It's still available on tire rack for your 20 inch wheels. I use it in 19 inch. I've been really pleased with them on both snowy and dry conditions.

But if you have a second car to drive, you might as well drive it when it snows and keep the S6 looking fresh until next winter season. I got my S6 at the end of February 2013 and didn't bother getting a winter set up until December.

I want to say 40%? I text the dealer to see what % they did and waiting to here from him they did it for free since my car came with a chrome accented grill instead of the high gloss black one it was supposed to have (they got me the black grill as well of course). I had told them to go as dark as possible and I think 40% is max in NM my wife's car is 30% and my windows are considerably darker than hers. The dealer PPF price seemed steep so I held off, but I may get it done this summer.

Looks nice. Congrats. I'm in the Milwaukee area but am down in Chicago often for work. Hopefully you can hold out without having to buy a winter setup this late. A lot of stock is gone. I run some oemplus after market 19's with hakka r2's which are stunning.

I am in chicago. I have a black 2013 s6.

I opted to just replace the shoes with all seasons. I got the michelin pilot sport a/s 3s. The streets get plowed pretty quickly and these all seasons have done great, they feel better in the winter than the pzeros do in the summer. Whatever you do get off those pzeros, those tires just suck.
