    A4 Avant Quattro any buyers tips? any common faults or running issues?

    Hi,

    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

    Cheers
    Craig

    off the top of my head

    to look for:
    worn front suspension arms, (knocking)
    wheel alignment, (scrubbed tyres/tracking)
    smokey turbo
    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!)
