    Hi everyone,

    I have just purchased a 2001 B5 1.8T - collecting it on wednesday. Only 37000 on the clock and in perfect condition. My mechanical knowledge is almost zero so I was basically just asking for any general advice and tips on maintenance. Is there any thing I need to check or maintain on this car? Just anything worth being aware of really I guess having never owned an Audi before.

    I think its only had one service previous so I'll give it another one and get the cambelt replaced around 50k is usual?

    I know these cars are mod/tuner friendly which is cool and in a few months I'll probably look into this side of things a bit.

    Just make sure if you have been on running the car for a bit dont just stop and turn off the engine. Leave the car to idle for a few minutes to allow the turbo to cool down.

    Other than that just general advise regular oil changes and services and you should have many happy years of motoring.
