    Advice on B6 A4 2.0FSI ?

    Hi can anyone advise me on what to look out for when purchasing this model? I've seen a mint example of one today and thinking about making an offer but need to make sure I look out for anything that may be a problem based on the experience of you owners. The car is Silver with black cloth interior and I would like to make some minor interior mods like adding an armrest and also changing the wheels to something like RS6 reps, plus the Votex front bumper.

    Also can parking sensors be easily retro-fitted to this car? (for the wife not me!)

    Why - is the 2.0FSI a really slow car then? My wife currently drives a 1.3 Yaris so anything above a 1.6 will be better, although I drive a re-mapped 225 TT so it probably feel dull in comparison!

    0-60 doesn't tell the whole story. It's the in-gear times (30-50, 40-60 etc) that are nearer to real world driving and the 2.0FSI needs ragging to get decent performance. As a result you won't get mpg near what Audi quote. It also requires 98ron fuel to get the best performance.

    If petrol is a must you'd probably be better looking for a 1.8T 163 or 190. Otherwise I'd get a 1.9 PD130

    ture...depends on how you drive really, i've noticed the 2.0 and 3.0 cars are good on the motorway, and i can get 30+mpg on stright runs, but the tdi is prob the best for both worlds???

    97K is hardly starship milage, I had my Passat done a 217k, nows is over 251k with no adverse affects.
    97k is just run in.
