many thanks for the tip on Audiworld. did not know about it. feel pretty good about the price increase between my '06 and an identical (somewhat) '07. I'm real happy about the replacement of Atlas Gray with another Gray. something about not seeing another car like mine rolling down the road I enjoy.
best of luck with your delivery. although I've said it before, check the tire pressure on a front and rear and if they are wrong make somebody fix all the tires. also have them check the spare and show you the guage. that tire and wheel is heavy and not fun to dig out of the hole in the back.

the tire info is not in the manuals you wll receive. it is on the driver's door frame along with the load limits. i have been using 35 front; 39 rear; 39 spare as directed. the ride is just fine. i have a friend with an A6 S-line who dropped the pressure from the recommended settings to improve his ride and his tires need replacement after 12,000 miles. if you get a nail or something in a front you can let the air out of the spare. or let the service man who responds to your Audi Assistance call do it. i called them and asked for trip assistance for a x-country trip we're planning in Sep and received an amazingly complete set of directions and maps. it arrived in less than a week, had over 80 pages of info. then I received another copy of the same package so I now have lots of scrap paper as thet only print on one side of an 8.5 x 11 sheet. if you use the service (it's free) be sure you have an idea of what route you will be taking if you want something customized. if I had just asked for Seattle to Massachusetts it would have been direct, interstates all the way. very nice perk I think.

#276 of 301 Cargo Nets

Were your 2006 Avants delivered with cargo nets as part of the storage package? The net would attach to the sliding clamps on the rear rails.

My '06 Avant came with the net and a strap that unwinds from between two small removable posts that can be attached to the rails and the bar that attaches to the rails across the back. The bar can be slid along the rails and we use it all the time for carrying grocery bags between the bar and the raised cargo floor. I attached a small cloth loop to the underside of the cargo floor in the seam where it folds to make raising it much easier.
Looks like your prices are $2,560 under what my Moroni listed. The biggest change is in the base price ($44,302 vs. $46,870). My Port of Entry was San Diego and I did not see a Port Prep on the Moroni. Just turned 1,500 miles and like the car more and more.

Premium Pkg is now standard for 2007; I just took delivery on Monday, and there was no cargo net. This seems odd and I am asking the dealer to find it.

Cargo net is standard pretty much across the Audi line in all the trunks. Ask your dealer to give it to you.

I purchased my 2006 A6 Avant 3.2 in November of 05 as a special order. It topped out around $68,000 and is completely loaded including premium sports seats, 18" BBS Special rim and tire package, bluetooth, adaptive air suspension, adaptive cruise control, nav, wooden steering wheel and gear shft, automatic tailgate, keyless entry, sunroof, and your standard Audi premium and technology packages. I have about 9100 trouble-free miles on it as I comute about 100 miles a day round-trip. The car is solid, tremendous build quality, and with the adaptive air suspension a great feeling and road handling car for such a beast. I love the 3.2 V-6 as it has good torque and it is very smooth. I highly recommend it...and it looks cool!
