I bought a 2005 A4 2.0 TDI S-line about a month ago, turns out it's a BLB engine! I've been into my local Audi dealer this morning to chat to one of their managers to see what they would do for me as my car has FASH. Turns out as I predicted they will do nothing! But the guy did admit to knowing about the fault, said he knows of 4 being done in his 8 years at Audi!
Anyhow I really don't want to sell the car as I really like it and I've just had all the alloys re-done etc etc. So I'm thinking about purchasing an extended warranty, either from Audi direct or through Warranty Direct or Warranty Wise. Has anyone got any experience of these? My other idea is to just put the money away each month but if we had the dreaded BLB oil pump failure it probably wouldn't be enough to cover it. Also Warranty Direct covers wear & tear so I could claim for suspension work etc, I'm thinking at Audi's prices it'll probably pay for itself!
I'm still contemplating selling her but I'd rather keep her and get covered just in case.
Thoughts and opinions welcome.
