    Potential Purchase

    Afternoon ladies and gents

    I was after a bit of advice. I currently have a B6 S4 Avant Tiptronic, and am considering replacing with An A6 3.0 TDI Avant Le Mans Tiptronic.

    I was wondering though, does the 3.0 TDI come with the Multitronic or Tiptronic box? I am trying to stay away from multitronic!!

    Also if there are any known issues to look out for. I've hunted around the internet, but I haven't found much if anything to look out for. the B6 S4 has 'traits' like rattling chain tensioners, Aux Radiators etc, but for the A6 3.0 I haven't found much.

    Any advice or comments greatly appreciated :D

    3.0TDi are Trippies. All quattro motors use Trippy rather than multispastic

    Oh right, awesome thanks for the reply. I looked at a 3.2 Quattro A4 before biting the bullet and going all V8, and the sales guy said it had a multitronic box in it. I ran away!!!

    I don't know why people have a problem with the Multitronic. I have just sold my 1.9 multi for a 2.7Q tiptronic and new car is fantastic, but gearchanges definitley not as smooth as multitronic.

    Because a vast majority broke. To the extent that Audi had to change the design and replace a LOT under warrenty.
