Hey all, I joined this website after reading some of the topics and noticed that the guys who reply are extremely kind (I've been used with raging and flaming people)...and the other reason is that I couldn't find another EU website that uses English, I'm moving to Germany in February but my German is medium so I have a hard time understanding something from what I read on their forums.
Anyway, I'm going to buy an Audi A4 1.8T, no more then 100.000km on board and no more then 10.000 euros (I already found some very good ones in this price range, 8-10.000 euros).
1. First of all what should I be careful at when buying one? From previous experiences with cars bought from Germany, most of the second hand cars dealers are from Turkey and let's say the cars can have a lot of surprises even though they look and seem to be in a very good condition. I will see if I can bring a mechanic with me to look at the car before buying it but til then, I thought I should ask here.
2. After reading a bit on this forum, I saw the difference between Tiptronic and Multitronic and also noticed that the 1.8T Quattro version is pretty rare in EU...anyway, my question regarding the Automatic Gearbox, does it come with 5 or 6 gears? I didn't really saw anything related to the number of gears on the second hand cars websites...and I also don't want one with 5 gears
I would also like some suggestions and help regarding different parts I wanna buy for the car but I will post about that a bit later.
Thanks and have a nice day
