Hi, I'm currently driving round in a B7 tdi avant but looking to swap for a B6 petrol engined quattro and wondered if you could advise me on which car is best.
From nosing around my immediate common options I see seem to be either the 3.0v6 or the 1.8t. As a guess, the 1.8 will put out 150bhp? Which I imagine will be a bit limp, however I think the 3.0 only puts out about 50 more. Is that right?
So first question is which one is better from a tuning and tweaking point of view. I'm guessing the 3.0 would have a tougher clutch but may be more difficult to get power from?
Best mileage or lowest mileage seems to be around 75k, are there any faults that should have been fixed by this stage or any things to expect to go wrong in close future mileage?
Finally are there any other issues common or not to look out for? Tiptronic to be avoided as usual?
Thanks in advance for any help
