Default Anyway to keep the heat running after shutting off and leaving the car?

In former vehicles, my VW Touareg had a "rest" button, my BMW X5 you just kept hitting the fan down button until it kicked in... in both cases, it would have the heat continue to blow for about 20 mins until the engine cooled down. Was great for short in/out of the car like grocery shopping, etc. To not have to get back into a cold car. Does the A6 have this feature somewhere?

After turning off the car, you press and hold the fan button. The climate control will turn on, but will turn off in 10 minutes or so.

Tested that. Did not know that, that's freaking cool.

I will have to remember that feature when I do short stops. The C5 had a vag mod where you could accommplish the same task. It would run the system for 20 minutes roughly while the engine was warm. So it's nice to see that the option is already set in the car. Thanks for the tip.

...but only if you have a Prestige as it requires the 4-Zone AC for this. On the 2 and 3 Zone systems there is no fan button, just a **** to turn and turning this after switching off the engine does nothing.

So it definitely works! I'm using it all the time now when I get out of the car. The car now is always warmer when I return to it. Love it.
