Although most of 4G cars have a reverse camera, mine doesn't. It has a perfectly good back and front PDC which is more than enough for me but there wasn't much else to tinker on the car so here it is. It's fairly easy retrofit and the most dificult part is the wiring as usual. Parts Required There are several parts you need for this: Module - the A6 part number is 4G0907441 but you can use a module from A8 - 4h0907441 - whatever you find cheaper from eBay, or at least that's what I did.Camera - camera number is 7P6827566 but you can get a cheap China clone which is actually better than the original one.

Audi A6 4G C7 Illuminated LED Sills Installation

Led sills look awesome on your car at night. There are numerous variants with S-Line, Allroad, S6 and RS6 illuminated ones.

Plus, chinese ones have circle cables that require you to drill through your car which is ridiculous.

Audi A6 4F Cabin (Polen) Filter Replacement

Regularly changinf your Cabin/Polen filter is very important for the work of your car, air conditioning system and for your health. They are very easy to replace if you know how to do it. My advise is not to buy any aftermarket filter because they aren't nearly as good as the original ones with charcoal. If you have allergies - don't even think about a filter without it :) The original ones are with number 4F0 819 439 C - that's a pack of two filters which have the best price - something like EUR50 for both. Personally, I prefer to remove the glove box so I can operate more freely. On the left side you will see a tap,…

A6 4F Automatic Dimming Mirror Retrofit

Adding an automatic dimming mirror to your A6 4F Audi (and other models like A3, A4, A5) is fairly easy. There are two ways to do that. If your car has automatic dimming side mirrors, we recommend that you get the Kufatec harness and follow the instructions that come with it. However, this is not necessary. There are six cables in the harness that command the side mirrors and disable the dimming when you put your car on reverse. The mirror itself, only needs power to operate correctly. This is why, if you don't need this function you can simply cut the unnecessary cables and connect the others to the existing ones that go for your light sensor. On the…

A6 4F Manual Gearshift Knob Replacement with S-line Knob

To be honest, the S-line gearshift knob looks much, much better than the regular one both on the manual and automatic gearshift levers. In addition, especially if you're driving a car with manual gearshift you will be constantly in contact with that lever. This is why it's totally worth it to replace it with the S-line version. It's easy and not very expensive retrofit. First, put your fingers under the edge of the leather base of the knob and carefully pull it out. Once you do that, lift the leather up to reveal the bracket that holds the knob. Use a screwdriver to remove it and pull out the knob from the axel. Once the knob is free, you need…
