Default Venturing into the Audi world (but already loyal VW fan)

Hello all,
I'm looking for some advice and tips from all you A6 fans.
We are looking to replace our 2003 Jetta (2009 VW passat wagon-keeper!).
I have the opportunity to buy a 2011 A6 3.0T from my brother's father in-law.
On the surface the car looks to be in excellent condition with only 58000km.

I've always dreamed about owning an A6 and could never swallow the $$ on a new one and finally, at last an opportunity!

I'm pretty excited of the change but am scouring the web for some (Canadian) details and specs for that model.

1) spec list (brochure) from 2011 - advice for any links?
2) Typical quirks (owned 6 VW's in my lifetime and quirks they had!)
3) Any TSB's I should look out for.
4) common issues (i.e. tranny, electronics, powertrain)

I know the vehicle will be a great driver but have never owned an Audi before and just needed some additional info and perhaps reassurance that I am waling into something legit!

BTW, the other car we (wifey) were ready to drop the hammer on is the 2016 Honda Pilot. Not my favourite but the practical side of me would concede with.

Thanks for hearing me out and looking forward to and advice (good and bad).

Cheers
Tony from Richmond Hill

Hi Tony
I'm sorry I took a look at my stash but I couldn't find the brochure.
I'll keep looking and let you know if I find it.
