you will need to pull the radio out and get the serial number off the back of the radio unit. then call up your local VW/AUDI repair shop or dealer and ask them to look up the code for you. i had to do this last week with my VW jetta.
It doesn't mean there's a problem. That inspection message is based on miles driven, not on any problem that the car has detected. On my A4, the "service oil" message pops up every 5000 miles. I just turn it off because I do my oil changes more often than that and the message does not coincide with my intervals.
On the A4 (and I suspect the same on your A6), to turn off the message, put the key in the ignition. On the gauge cluster, there are two stalks. Hold down the left one and turn the key to full electrical power (right before you'd crank the engine). Still holding in the left stalk, pull out on the right one and the message should change to "- - - -". Release the right stalk, turn the key off, and then release the left stalk. Turn the key back on and the message should be gone.
It may take a couple tries, but once you get it right, you'll be good to go for another (probably) 5000 miles.
KEEP BACK FROM DEALERSHIPS!!!!! WILL RIP YOU OFF BIG TIME.....ALWAYS GET A LOCAL GARAGE TO DO THE WORK(ALWAYS ALOT CHEAPER AND BETTER) SHOULD HAVE GOT A ROUGH PRICE FROM YOUR LOCAL GARAGE FRIST........
