    am i right in thinking all quattro auto will be tiptronic and not the poor perception/review of multitronic?

    any issues with these, do they have a cam chain?
    anything to take note on used examples at circa 80k on a 2005 plate?

    what do you think is a good price for a 2005, 3.0tdi avant with about 80k?
    i'm not really one to look at such high mileage cars due to more expense on maintenance and resale value of being such a high miler

    opinions?

    Yes the 3.0 Tdi has a cam chain, yes i beleive the quattro is tiptronic, i have manual but i have driven the 3.0 tdi auto and to be honest prefer manual.( although its a rarity)

    To be honest mate 80k is nothing on a 3.0 Tdi V6 as long as its been regularly serviced and looked after, i would say your looking at anywhere between £11-13k depending on spec/condition etc

    Remember the 3.0 tdi v6 quattro is a rare engine and they dont come up very often.

    Thanks
    I assume cam chain doesn't require change?
    Never had a tdi but any issues with the diesel particle filter etc?

    Having a dsg as the main car, we're looking at autos

    apart from the normal oil change and filters etc what are the big services?

    I have a 2005 3.0tdi manual, I bought it a year ago with 80k on it. I've had no issues so far. I paid £11k with FASH from an independant dealer. The cam chain doesn't require changing. I beleive the 2005 doesn't have a DPF but I can't be 100% certain on that. The only thing I will say is they eat tyres but that seems to the same on all audi's. Good luck with the search.

    Ref the servicing, main dealers for a major service is approx £400 - £450 is. Specialist £300 ish. I do mine myself, using genuine parts and castrol edge oil, £150.

    thanks

    i have a R32 2006 with only 25k, DSG all the toys, but it doesn't carry all the baby gear when visiting friends and family LOL
    also could do with something more economical

    what mpg do you get?

    how many miles to a tank on average and how many litres to fill up after?

    I love the 3.0 tdi avant b7, economical even for a V6 3.0, certainly way more than a R32 guzzler, also its roomy, 4wd & the tip is perfect tbh for less stress whilst driving & especially with kids as no need to flaff about with clutch/gear changes huh.

    IIRC there is a 205 & 233 version no?

    I still lust after 1 of these since I got shot of my S4 B6 Avant few years ago.

    Quite different from what I've read. My manual one averages 35mpg upto 40 on a run. Really pleased with it.

    I need a new chain tensioner on my 2005 110k car, a bit pissed off as it has full dealer history. Just one of those things I'm told!

    Have a drive think you'll be impressed. Wish I'd tried an auto, but I wanted the extra performance and economy of the manual.

    i've driven a 3.0d auto in bmw guise, nice and easy. performance isn't going to be rev happy like the petrol, but economy is better.

    think performane and mpg is a good combo.
    my R32 average is circa 25mpg. so another average of 10mpg is good.
