    Look at the sticky section above!
    If its got the multitronic gearbox do a google then go and buy something else, some people have no problems, others have been stung 3/4 K
    Ebay audi A4 spare repair always one for sale with knackered multitronic gearbox!
    Im no audi expert, but if you spend a month on here and read every new post you soon get the pattern
    2.0t petrol multiple problems and **** mpg
    2.0 TDI even more problems that are even more expensive to fix, good mpg
    2.7/3.0TDI loads of power really good engine, damn good mpg only things seem to be injectors and manifold flaps
    Multitronic terrible thing avoid like the plague
    S tronic proper auto pretty bullet proof

    So to sum it up what you need is a 3.0 tdi quattro auto, with tidy miles.

    This. I have had mine nearly four years now, and it is by a country mile the best car I have ever owned.

    This, if you can't stretch to a 3.0TDi. The 1.9TDi is the nearest thing there is to an unbreakable engine. Find one that's been looked after properly, continue to do the same, and it may well outlive you.
