    Thoughts on buying high mileage A4 Avant 2.0 T FSI Quattro S-Line

    Hi there,

    New to the forums, and to Audis in general! Interesting in buying an A4 Avant - specifically an A4 Avant 2.0 T FSI Quattro S-Line.

    Have seen a 2007 model with a nice spec (leather, Bose etc) but which has done 110k miles, for the same price as lower spec lower mileage examples (70 - 80k) that are 1.5 years older. Apparently the mileage is all motorway miles; it looks very tidy in the pictures and has FSH (and has been recently serviced).

    I'd be using the car as a second car, so will likely put only 5-6k on it per year. I appreciate that when the time came to sell it it might be a bit more difficult to sell as people are put off by 100k+, and I'm not too worried about that - I plan to keep it for a while anyway.

    However, what are people's views about buying a high mileage Audi? Is it more likely to have mechanical troubles, or is it better that it has done low stress motorway miles? How is the 2.0 T FSI at high mileages? And is there anything in particular I should look for (going to see it tomorrow?)

    Thanks in advance for any and all thoughts!!

    TBH, if you are looking at keeping it for a while and doing low mileage, then in a few years the mileage will be closer the norm for the age of vehicle due to you putting so few miles on it.

    Thanks for all the advice - saw the car and it did look in excellent condition, so I bought it! Not sure I can post pictures but if I can I will put some up.

    Thanks abenson - yes, mine is also the special edition with 220bhp and the cross drilled front brakes! Really pleased with it. What have you remapped yours up to?!
