Default About to buy this A6. Could use your help!

Hi guys,
I'm about to buy
and I'm trying to get a good feel for whether the car has the options I'd like, etc. I already test drove the car but the dealer knew nothing so I figured you guys would. I can sum it up as

1. Premium (how do I know if it's a "Plus"?)
2. 3.0 quattro
3. The front seats look a little different than another 2012 A6 I test drove... these are not round (and I like that) but I was wondering if that is part of a package?
4. Aluminum inlays
5. Bose Audio
6. He says the back seat is heated but I couldn't tell that by looking at the backseat controls... ?

Price-wise I think it's fair but would also like to hear your thoughts on that. Thanks!!

Someone else can chime in but I believe if it's a 3.0 engine it has to be premium plus or prestige. So that would lead me to believe it's actually a Prem Plus A6. Also, from looking at the pics, it doesnt seem to have rear seat warmers.

Judging by:

Folding Mirrors
4-zone climate
Perforated seats
S-line trim on bumpers and rocker panels

That's a prestige trim.

However, I'm stumped as to why it does not have wood trim.

I had the aluminum inlays on a previous a5 and it was a disappointment compared to the wood.

Thanks! so you can tell you have the sport package when the steering wheel is 3-spoke as opposed to 4-spoke, correct? and I'm guessing 19" wheels are also standard with the sport pack? these wheels and tires look rather lame...

Thanks! what does perforated seats add in the car? I used to have a BMW 535 F10 with the active seats and it included perforated/active ventilated seats. The option in my opinion was not worth the hype but wondering if the option on Audi also has ventilated seats when they are perforated?

Also, isn't B&O audio standard with Prestige? this has Bose...

Thanks! With regards to looks? or quality of the aluminum? I test drove another A6 with the wood and I just didn't like it as much as aluminum. I guess personal taste... the aluminum in my opinion looks a little sportier.

I agree, the rear seats are not heated, it does NOT have the sport package(it would have the 3 spoke steering wheel and paddle shifters, and looks to be a premium plus to me. A premium doesn't have keyless start stop and it has halogen lights instead of Xenon or LED. This car looks to have both of those options.
