i have read in the forums the antenna for the alarm is located behind the 
rear folding seats, or under the rear seat, you can run a wire extending the 
factory short antenna and its spose to fix the whole range issue, this is one of 
those mods i have been meaning to do, a quick search on audiworld or vortex 
should yeild you the mod. report back if it all go's good

If you have a 1996 A6, chances are you have the IR remote keyless entry 
system.  It's fine, 6 feet 
is much better than sticking your key in the door locks.  People just have 
expectation issues.

Later models, like the 2000 mentioned below, got the RF signal version.  As 
everyone here should 
know, radio waves (RF) travel much further than infrared line of sight 
systems (IR).

Do you really need to unlock and lock your car from 50 meters away?   Audi 
converted to the RF 
system in 1998.
