Audi comes up with bright idea for new A6
Available as an optional alternative to halogen or bi-xenon lamps, the advanced LED units use just 40 Watts of power each, are maintenance free and provide long life.
The LED units use just four one-chip and five two-chip LEDs to create dipped-beam light, and 24 white LEDs to make up the daytime running lights in each headlight. This keeps power consumption and maintenance down, and assures an excellent service life.
The move comes as European legislation is passed, requiring car manufacturers to fit all new cars with daytime running lights to help reduce the number of road accidents.
The A6 Saloon is available to order now and prices start at £30,145 on the road for the 2.0 TDI (170PS) SE model. The all-LED headlight option costs £2,710, and as well as dipped, main beam, indicator and daytime running lights also incorporates static turning lights, high-beam assist with all-weather light function and motorway lights.
