    Trying to find my perfect A6, Help needed.

    Hello, hope someone may be able to help.
    I'm not having much joy on finding a car through autotrader or exchange and mart. Know of any other good sites to look at?

    any for sale near you? maybe in a local garage/ car sales? Thinking of selling your own one? any chance of a post on here or an email with details would be greatly appreciated.

    ideally i'm looking for a 2.8Q, or 2.7BT either in Red, Black, Grey, or silver. (Not a fan of the blue dashes) Needs to be a manual. Leather preferred but a dark grey/black int also good. I know it's a long shot but thought it would be worth trying asking on here. on a tight(ish) budget of about 6k ish so might be asking for the imposible.

    Fingers crossed

    8K is too much for my wallet just now - if i need to travel then I will for the right car.

    Started to spead my search to 1.8T and avants in the hope I find a nice one. found a local company who can chip the 1.8t to 200bhp for just under 500.

    What about craigslist?

    Also, I'd try posting a "WTB" thread in all the audi forums you can find

    SUCCESS!!!

    Well sort of, due to further complications with my old vectra I had to settle with a car that ticked as many boxes as possible. Not a perfect wish list but she looks fantastic (will post pictures soon, just not had a chance to take any)

    Red A6 Avant, fully colour coded, 18 inch RS6 style alloys (no idea if the are replica's or oe so i'm assuming replicas) silver mirrors and roof rails. Looks the part anyway even though it is only a 1.8t

    in it's defence the 1.8t is much nippier than a 2.0ltr ecotec vectra

    so i'm happy for now

    Thanks again to every one who took time to post and try and help me out.

    Very similar, mine has rs6 18 style wheels and silver mirror caps. If it's a nice day tomorrow I plan to get her washed and i'll post a few pics

    oh, and the one above has mud flaps mine doesn't, but if i can find a stubby set like my wife's polo has i'll fit them to stop the crap flying up the sides.
