    Would ya?

    Hi guys, I'm from the b7 forum. I'm thinking about buying B8 model, I've seen some nice examples in my budget but they all seem to be high mileage 100k
    Would you take a chance on one or try and find one with lower mileage?
    ALso would you go for sline models or se?
    Cheers

    If a 100k on a 2.0 TDi is a problem then I have made a huge mistake !!!!

    My last A4 is a 1.8T petrol limited edition and I did 267,000 miles in it and my wife is driving it now so I would hope as long as you have confirm service history I'm sure it will be fine.

    Lol it's just that I've never had a car with that amount of mileage before, I really do like the look of the b8 avants

    If your budget will stretch to a 3.0 tdi, and you can find one, then go for it, the 3 litre is such a nice drive and capable of mega mileage, they don't seem to suffer from as many reliability issues as the four pot motors.

    Around 30 - 32 average, long m way runs will raise this to 40+, similar to a 2 litre petrol and not much less than a 2 litre Diesel really, but a MUCH nicer drive.

    The 1.9tdi diesel is legendary for longevity. Alas, the 2.0tdi is of a different design.
    The best 2,0 tdi units for the B8 models are those made after late 2010 when the last oil pump/ balance shaft mod that plagued the earlier B7 engined cars was introduced.
