After 6.5 years of C7 ownership I will be picking up my C8 Avant at 9:00 tomorrow morning. Really looking forward to trying out all the new features and seeing how I get on with the touch screen.

John, congratulations. I sure wish we had access to the full size Avant. I'd have that car in my garage. Tell us what Avant "40" indicates. Diesel or petrol ? Etc.

Thanks.

Enjoy, I guess wiping ketchup off a screen easier than a ****! Still getting used to my son's car that is all touch screen.

40 or 50 are the 2 choices and they are both diesel.

Photos of the new car. Definitely a step up from the C7. So far touchscreen seems fine, but perhaps tellingly I got given a packet of Audi screen wipes during the handover

As already mentioned the 40 TDi is the 2.0 204ps engine, currently in the UK there is also a 50 which is the 3.0 TDi. In Germany there is a 2.0 petrol branded 45 and I think the 3.0 petrol is 55. Not the most intuitive naming convention, but I guess it means Audi can differentiate between cars that have different power versions of the same basic engine
