I just paid $20,000 for an A6 Quattro 5 speed (difficult to find and
commands a premium price)
with 58,000 miles on it.  This car came back from lease and it qualified as
an "Audi Assured" vehicle.
As a result it also came with a 2 year 24,000 mile new car warrantee
(bumper to bumper not just drivetrain)  The 60,000 mile check was done at
N/C (this is an expensive one cause it includes the timing belt) and I have
already had some window switches, temp sensors, wind noise fixes repaired
under aforementioned warrantee.  They also bought me four new tires because
the tires on the car were not matched. Your deal seems high priced and
insufficiently warranteed compared to most deals that are around on these
cars.  Is this an Audi dealer that is selling the car? A6es with slushboxes
are coming back off lease are quite plentiful right now at Audi dealers.  I
know I just spent 6 months looking for a 5 speed.  If the Audi dealer who
takes it back off lease, sells it there are added incentives from Audi for
doing so.  I'd keep looking around.  If you are interested in my dealer in
CT who will deal E-Mail me back

Hope this helps
