    How long is a peice of string... Depends, given the knowledge that Audi usually make good peices of string, and that that peice of string has been maintained I would say at least another 60-80K?

    As a guide anything past 100k is going to start needing major things changed and maintained!

    Everything in general, even things you probably wouldnt think about, seat covers, trim quality, roof lining. I suppose those things arent important to everyone though.
