Im thinking of buying an A4 quattro but im a bit torn. I could spend 4-6k buying a 2002-2004 1.9 PD with 100- 140k miles or £1300 buying a very clean 1997 150k mile non PD with a years mot and partial service history.
Im seriously tempted by the old one as I had a passat with the non PD engine and it was a great and very frugal car. The wife has a 2002 Passat TDI 130 and its a really good car too but its thirstyer than my old one was and from what ive read the PD engines can be higher maintenance.
Could some of you folks give me your input on how these older quattros get on with higher mileage?
