A4 Avant Quattro any buyers tips? any common faults or running issues?
I have seen a 1.8t quattro avant for sale but I dont know what to look out for? Are there any common issues? leaky diffs?
What are the repair bills like on them? Its a 1999 model
off the top of my head
to look for:
worn front suspension arms, (knocking)
wheel alignment, (scrubbed tyres/tracking)
rusted spots (rear sail trim on doors, rear lock strip, roof gutter/rails
to change in future:
suspension (OEM is a bit high and wallowy)
brakes (OEM on the 1.8t are famously crap! either full change or pads/discs)
headlights (like candles on dipped beam!)
