Hi come over from the B5 forum
I've been on the B5 forum now for a year or so. I own a B5 2.8 Avant. I have just bought the Mrs a 3.0 quattro avant on a 02 plate. Its fully loaded with all the sports trimmings etc. Its a great car and drives very well with only 38,000 and a full Audi service history. I have just finished polishing and decontaminating the paintwork and checked it over for potential probs and wear/tear. Everything seems pretty good! Problem wise/things to look out for is it similar to the usual B5 probs? (i.e. control arms/wet carpets/smokey rocker covers etc etc) or has the B6 got its own unique fair share of probs and niggles? Is there anything I should mod/swap to pre-empt and stop any potential probs? Guess all I'm looking for here is some sound advice about the B6 platform potential issues. As part of the sale I had the Audi garage..
-Change the timing belt and all the associated parts (thermo/water pump/tensioner etc)
-Change ALL fluids incl the diff and box oil
-Refurb the alloys
-Change both the rocker cover gasket seals (even though they were not smoking)
Many Thanks Gents!
