    points to look for on S LINE TFSI QUATTRO 2.0t

    new to the site and in the next month or so looking for one of the above ive only got about 6k so looking at high mileage one 55 ish plate, whats main thing I need to look out for on them, ive read already to make sure its got full service history to help stop the oil pump problem and weak dv and notchy gearbox when cold means the oil needs changing

    is there anything suspension wise to look out for on high mileage ones ?

    also ive noticed some come with se bumpers so il make sure to get one with the proper s line bumper thanks tom

    it's crazy how much more the B7 is over a B6, you could get a mint B6 S line Quattro for that, and only a year older. Better looking, better engine......











    Rod cast, now waiting for bites.

    check if the cam belt / water pump has been replaced.

    think the cam belt needs to be changed after 60k or 5 years which ever comes first.

    Generally good reliable engines

    As a fellow owner of a 55 plate high mileage TFSI Quattro, these are the issues I've had with mine. I bought it in Nov 11 with 108k miles, it's now done 130k. Paid £5k at time of purchase.


    DV knackered when car purchased
    Air bag light came on (had to do the pretensioner wiring fix under driver's seat).
    Oil pressure warning - pickup/strainer replaced
    Oil pressure warning again few months later, and bad sounds from engine - complete oil pump failure this time (££££)
    Boot wouldn't close in cold weather (had to dismantle latch mechanism and grease it)
    Engine management also light comes on intermittently (though no ill effects on performance)

    Other than that it's been fine. Most of the above are fairly minor, other than the oil pump failure which was buku dollars.

    Not trying to put you off, just telling you what I've had to sort out on mine!
