    Going to look at A4 this week...its a 2004 (53) 1.9tdi 100 avant...only on 66K with full history! Immaculate...hoping to run it till it dies

    Only issue is the 100bhp version abit weezy?...im not after a whippet but something that will holds its own on the motorway every day at 70?

    Are these easy to remap, not that I would but maybe in the future...

    Most would prefer the 130 but if you would like the better mpg it could be good. Sounds like it was not intended for long commutes if that's genuine miles

    The 100bhp engine in the A4 can become laboriously slow at times. But it will remap happily to about 130bhp. As I recall, if you find a 5 speed 130bhp it will do the same mpg as the 100bhp. The 6 speed 130bhp engine does 2mpg less.

    I have the 100bhp and have done for 4 years

    Will sit at 90 all day long if you want tops out at around 110 and has power all the way there

    I keep hearing that they are under powered but I haven't had any problems in 4 years and have never felt the need to get a remap although I do want a remap! That doesn't mean it NEEDS it

    It is a little better on juice too than the 130 I can get up to 65mpg on a run usually around high 50's though

    As I say owner for 4 years and can't grumble at all if it's a good price I would go for it

    Well here it is...I think it may be little over-priced? Any thoughts, probably will try and knock him down if I see it..what you think?

    Nice colour but few extras.May not have 4e/windows.Price is high and I would look for one with more miles and a lot cheaper and perhaps with more extras

    doesn't look a bad car and with the miles its not had a hard life.
    its not got a towbar so its not been used for pulling a caravan up and down the country looks an honest car.
    try and bargain on the price as with most places there is normally movement to be had if you can bargain

    The dealer is using the mileage to hook someone who doesn't know that these are happier doing much bigger numbers.It is 10 years old and the Avant deserves more power.The 130 can do great mpg and is nice to have power in hand,My 04 2.5tdi Quattro tiptronic with sat nav heated leather and xenons is not worth £5k only just run in at 117k

    I bought mine for 2k and me mate bought a 130 a few months back for 1750 from a local dealer aswel. That one does have lower miles than mine did but mine had an exrta 40k on the clock and was 3 grand cheaper. No brainer to me THAT is way overpriced!

    Right ok guys thanks for your input, think it is a little overpriced, wouldnt think the dealer would drop this any lower either. If I do go to see this what price would you think it was, as all these are similar prices on Autotrader?

    yeah it does look really nice, worth a look I think, going to try see if he can budge on price, im p/x'ing a fairly new car 58 plate 118d so he may want that, good bargaining tool maybe..idea is to release some money from this to fund a house :D oh the joys...so if i can get 2k back from this i will be happy tbh

    If you are experienced its best to sell privately .The dealer is looking for a fat profit and the Avant is basic few extras over a standard SE and not a desirable engine.Dealers have the advantage of a quick deal and you don't have to juggle buying and selling but this lets them clean up

    I'd say save the cash and go for a 130bhp with higher milage, they'll run for 200k+ and the 130 will return roughly the same mpg, insurance, etc but be faster and map to 170 if you fancy. With only 60k miles on a diesel chances are the car's either been clocked or smashed and left for dead.

    well went to view the vehicle last night after work, and yeah its a good looker, but service history didn't quite match up, well it did, but the stamps in the book were to me abit bogus, hmmm just not convinced this car has original mileage...seems abit odd really and not that honest, wasn't particularly nice inside, lots of wear and tear you'd imagine on a 150k car, which to me on a 66k audi b5 is abit strange, elecky windows didnt work, and there was a few bulb warning lights on dash...and thats still asking 5K with no budging dealer said..i even said its overpriced ha..good things come to those who wait hey...still searching!

    Think thats the plan now, even slighty older maybe, 03 plate etc...just need to get as much car for the money, cheap as possible but honest as possible, get nice ones for £3.5 not £5K haha, makes me laugh these dealers sometimes

    Good decision.There s/b no wear and tear if its genuine unless it was a pizza delivery car.Nothing on mine after 9 yrs.Some dealers will always try it on and it still works.Much better looking for an honest car with proper mileage
