    Welcome to the site!!

    If you post the question in the B5 A4 section, you will get more of a response and will be alot more specific too.

    As for the car, I cant vouch for the diesel side of it, but my previous car was a B5 1.8T and it was a very good car, only got rid of it as went for the S3 instead.

    honestly, I would try and find a tidy 1.9TDI, not much slower, more reliable and better fuel economy, if that's why you are buying a diesel in the first place? Of course if the 2.5 is at the right price and you really want the sound of a V6, then why not.

    Hi JoJo, sorry should have pointed out, its been modded a littel bit,
    re-mapped dunno bhp yet ,front mounted intercooler rs4 front bumper and grills,carbon roof,18" rims, coilovers, straight thru exhaust sounds awesome and is a flyer never realised you could get an estate that sits on the road so low and also handles really sweet..

    Happy days ahead :hubbahubba:

    Friend of mine went for Xmas holidays in eastern europe, from calais to sibiu/romania in 18 hours with a w reg c5 audi a6 saloon 2.5 tdi quattro. 1300 miles in 18 hours on 300 quid worth of fuel-remember that fuel is dear on motorways !!! The car is high mileage 180k+ and i have rebuilt the top end as the lifters were a little worn- fitted a new forged cams kit off ebay. He drove the car 140Mph+ and averaged 9L of fuel per 100 Km ! You guys need to drive a sorted/healthy v6 tdi- the experience is completely different to any 4 pot engine and if you like effortless motorway cruising then look no further ! The 1.9 Tdi is no match to the v6 and in quattro form is only 4-6Mpg better than the v6 which is not really worth-it in my eyes !
    220Bhp in a 1500-1600 Kg is decent fun whilst still returning 40-45 Mpg !
