My civic is up for sale at the moment and whilst im waiting for some interest I am forever checking too see what B6's are up for sale.
Now what im looking for is a 1.9tdi sport, but I have some questions which im hoping will assist my search in the future.
Double din capable:
Was the double din capability a standard feature in certain models (ie the SE) , or was it simply you had the choice at purchase of single din cd player, 6 cd player (double din), and RNS-E (double din)?
Do all a4 b6's come with a proper on board computer, that will do everything from brakelight checks to giving my mpg readings? The reason I ask is in some pictures I see the DIS showing a picture of which car doors are open-which kind of looks like a static image, and others with proper mpg readins etc which you can tell you can scroll through-and they both looked kind of different.
Am I right in thinking this was only availible as an optional extra with the RNS-E purchased? Or could you get a colour DIS dispite not having an RNS-E?
Did all B6s come equiped with headlights ready for Xenons/ Xenons fitted (ie the projector part)?
Id really apprecaite having the above cleared up
Now the more personal preference question and asking what you would do.
I would have quite a limited budget of 5.5k and im abit drawn over what I would do, so if you were in my postion what would you do?
a) spend the whole budget and get the lowest milage standard model you can get- that it means and resale it would be worth more given more attractive miles- but slow/limit future spend in the way of modifcations (could take another year to get the car how i want it)
b) try and get a standard example at around 4k with as low miles as possible (say sub 95k), and spend the outstanding £1500 on the mods you want- mapping, sline kit, wheels, etc.
c) save yourself the money on modding yourself and get one with it all already done, but with potentially higher miles (say circa 125k+)
I know engine wise as long as its been well maintained the engines will be bulletproof for many years to come, but im just concerned of how difficult it may be in the future to sell my car with 150k+ miles (assuming i purchased one with say 125k on the clocks), but I know it would work out a fair bit cheaper buyign an a4 with the mods I want already done and I just cant decide what to do...
Thanks in advance for your help,
