Any help on buying an A4 TDi?
I've been lurking on here for a while now, but the time has come to make my first post!
Seeing as this seems to be the foremost Audi resource I can find on the net, I thought you guys will probably be able to help me out.
I'm currently in the process of selling my car (E36 318iS) and looking at getting an Audi A4 (B5) 1.9TDi.
Preferably I'm looking at the 110 or 115 models as I plan on remapping the car and these give a nice rounded figure at just under 150bhp once done. It seems the 90bhp models dont give that much more once remapped, and I dont think I could live with going from a smaller car with 140bhp down to a larger with 90bhp...
Also hoping to get hold of a late 1999/2000 model as I gather these are the facelift models (centre-console looks much nicer imo). Im not really fussed about leather, I'll be happy with a cloth interior, but the dash has to be black and not grey.
My budget is around £3k, and I want a car with as close to 100K on the mileage as possible.
I've found one with the perfect spec, completely standard and very tidy for 2.5K, but the mileage is around 120K.
My main question is....
Am I expecting too much for too little money?
Is an A4 1.9TDi 110/115 good for remapping?
Is 120k+ mileage ok on these cars? Should I be looking at less?
Any signs to look out for when viewing?
Are the service fees high? And if so how often do you service them?
Any help is warmly appreciated!
Sorry for looking stupid.
This is the first Diesel and Audi i'll be getting so I'm not sure what to look at when viewing the car.
Really love the shape of them though. With a little drop, they look fantastic!
