Default Detailed 2017 Audi A4 allroad review

Hey folks!

Finally got around to posting a review of my 2017 Audi A4 allroad wagon. Itís a pretty detailed review from an ownerís pov vs. a quick and dirty press-type review; hence the length


Iíve provided shortcuts in the video description to jump to specific sections if needed.
Let me know if anybody has any questions!

Cheers!

Thanks for an incredibly detailed and informative video. I've learned of features the Ar has that I was totally unaware of. Great job!

I can always appreciate someone who has a love for Wagons like myself. Nice work.

Would love some insight into what Dash Cam you're running, how you like it and how the install was, etc. I'm thinking about installing one but am mixed. Plus i need to convince my wife it's useful and worth it. Any advice on the wifey front is of course appreciated from forum members as well.

The dashcam is a god sent gift; funnily enough, we ended up installing it on all our cars AFTER wifey had her first fender bender. The guy she backed into (at ~5MPH) was an a**hole and the whole thing blew up. The $50-60 you spend on the cam would be the cheapest form of insurance you can possible get.

Regarding installation, it's pretty easy. Most good dashcams come with a pretty decent sized power cord (powered off the 12V socket). I was able to hide the cable under the dash/behind panel/pillar trims without any issues. The only thing I would caution is that if you will be parking your car out a lot, especially in the sun, get a dashcam with a super-capacitor vs. a Li-ion battery for safety reasons.

Thanks for the detailed review. You have provided more info than the Audi literature! Iím planning on purchasing an allroad this spring and you have answered my question as to wether the Prestige trim is worth it.

And what conclusion did you come to?
