I went to the showroom with the intent of just checking out the new B&O in the Audi A4, and one thing led to another and we ended up discussing the A6.
BHPian sawnilerules recently shared this with other enthusiasts.
At the outset sincere apologies to all my fellow team-bhpians for not being able to update the thread.
Work and family commitments kept me busy through out the time, and professionally as you keep rising the ladder, you keep getting busier by the day.
In last two years, while Octavia did not go through any upgrades, but miles get munching on the monster and in the interim, we did add Taigun GT Plus to the family as the third car last year, originally planned to replace the Grand i10, but that did not happen, and now we had three cars- Grand i10, Taigun GT Plus and Octavia.
On 4th March and me and wifey, randomly went to KIFS Volvo dealership in Mumbai Andheri to check out the Volvo S90, they were having an un-registered TD car for sale, we thought, let’s go and have a look at it. While I loved the car, but as luck would have it, wifey didn’t. So from there we ended up going to Audi West in Andheri, couple of meters ahead of the KIFS Volvo dealership.
I went with an intent of just checking out the new B&O in the Audi A4, and one thing led to another and we ended up discussing the A6. They were giving the A6 at deal which was lesser than the offer price given by KIFS Volvo guys for their unregistered TD S90.
Discussing further, they also offered me a last piece of MY22 A6, at a much lower price than that of the upgraded MY23 car, which lost out on Matrix lights and the MY22 that they had in stock did come with the Matrix Lights, but lost out on 360 cam and R19’s. Heck I said, if I am saving 5 lacs upfront, I can always upgrade to R19’s later and the only compromise would be a 360 Cam and beige interiors which were going to be dirt magnet.
Next was what value they would give for Octavia.
They evaluated the Octavia, I liked the offer they made for the car and bang, there we were stepping out of the dealership with a sales order form. We had no intent of buying anything that day, however we ended up booking an MY22A6 technology pack.
At the time of sell, the ODO on Octavia read 54000 km and I loved every km of those that I had put on the ODO. It was indeed a black beauty.
On 21st March, the team at Audi picked up the Octavia and on 22nd March, we got the A6 home.
Here’s the parting shot of our car with a mental disorder
