    Hiya All
    I'm looking at buying an '04 1.8TQ S-Line Avant in a couple of days & wondered if anyone has any usefull hints or suggestions of what to look out for or to be aware of? There's also a '55 plate 3.0TDI Quattro S-Line Avant in the same area for similar money, same questions again please. Any advice gratefully received, cheers

    Depends....the 04 1.8T will be a B5 model....if I got my year's right?!!! The 3.0 diesel would be great fun but with high running costs. Both may be costly if something big goes wrong! Take your time there's 100's of good B7 A4's up for sale. Search the threads on the Forum, the question has been asked hundreds of times! haha Don't panic, do your homework and you'll bag yourself a good one!

    Cheers

    That's good to know & actually makes life a little easier 'cause the wife has got a Mini Cooper S with 6sp box & would prefer the same in the Audi so that narrows the search and will please her, bonus!!
