    THINKING OF BUYING b7 CONVERVERTIBLE

    Hu Guys

    Im thinking of a buying a A4 1.8T (B7 budget is £7k)convertible and would like to know what to look out for as common faults?

    Also need help with the following:

    Is Manual better or Multitronic?
    Does the SLINE have better spec/trim or the Sport?
    Which model has multifunction steering wheel and Bose sound system? SLINE or Sport? or are these optional extras
    Does the standard sound system natively support MP3 or do I need one of these
    Venturi MINI multi-function Car Kit FM Transmitter: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics

    Any other tips/pointers would be most appreciated.

    thanks

    i dont like the multis autos etc thats something thats up to you
    bose etc is optional on se and s-line
    as are mfsw
    my s-line 07 came with mfsw dis thats it i retro fitted the rest the sport is more or less the same as s-line just older name
    only the RNS-E comes with mem card slots for the music
    everything you need can be retro fitted
    the sline has better seats 3 spoke wheel slightly lower and stiffer better bumpers
    the se is comfey so they say

    im on my 4th
    iv had an 03 03 08 now on the 07
    never had any leaks windows always close as they should
    you need to make sure its had the belts done water pump and good service history
    quite a few have the oil pick up pipe bung up and take the turbo and engine out
    CTS coolent temp sensor can go quite offen but a cheap easy repair
    other than that there good solid cars unless you get a bad 1

    thanks bez

    will keep that in mind, how often should the cambelt water pump be changed? if one has been changed at say 51k and the car as 70k , is it prudent to get it changed as soon as I get it or can leave it for anther 10k?

    or if car has done 59k and nver had the belt replaced shud i get it replaced as soon as I get it?
