I have recently purchased my fifth Audi this one being my third A4. This time i have gone for a 2003 A4 2.5 tdi 180 Quattro Avant replacing a 2002 a4 2.5 163 Multitronic Convertible and the first Quattro A4 (also had Quattro A3 and have a Quattro A5 Coupe) I have owned. the car has coverd 106k miles and has a full Audi service history backed up with piles of paperwork including a £1700 timing belt job in 2009.
I purchased this car yesterday in Ipswitch and have now driven the 500+ miles home to Perth. the car drove fantastic and gave great performance and a far nicer engine note thant the 3.0tdi A5! The one issue i have is that when negotiating tight corners and roundabouts the whole transmission feals tight a bit like my old agricultural Land Rover discovery did. Is this just a characteristic of the Quattro system on this car or is this a sign of troubles ahead?
