After 18 months away the pull of another Audi is too much, so I am coming back.. however I am doing my homework more in depth this time! (Last time I had a B7 S line with the BLB engine...however only found out about the problems after owning it for a couple of years..sold it with 140K on it and no probs, but I wasnt willing to run the risk so to speak)
So this time I have £12 - 13K to spend, maybe a smidge more..but I am torn between a earlier B8 A4 Avant S line.. or a A3 8P Sportback S line., both with the 2.0L TDI engine
are there any common faults to look out for or avoid? I know the 2.0L PPDs have a problem with the injectors, but if the car has had a recal will it then be OK? or are they still failing even after being changed?
anything to avoid on the common rails as in the A4 and later A3s? and if so are they confined to one engine code (like the BLB problem)?
any advice or what to look for / avoid would be appreciated,
