    Check the engine code, if it is a blb I would stay away unless it has had the chain oil pump assembly changed to a gear one. They have balance shaft and oil pump issues.

    Glovebox's always snap, check in the b6 section for a fix, or shell out for a new lid for £90 or so or a whole new glovebox £ 170 odd.

    The arm rest's also snap their handle.

    Stay well away from BLB engines as said previously - Big money to fix... Check in the service book for the engine code or in the boot where the spare wheel is.

    Apart from the glovebox issue - Also watch out for loose door handles - Drive you mad!

    Good car though, great mpg (i get 45/48mpg) and as quick, probably quicker than my old 1.8T A3 :icon_thumright:

    Fairly recently bought an 1.9TDI A4 avant 2008 '57' from a main dealer to ferry my dog and mountain bikes around, is this likely to be a BLB, if so i'm going to rip into my suppying dealer if it a known problem.....

    Where do i find the engine code?

    Don't worry, the blb engine was only 2.0 and in the early cars i.e 2005.

    Good 2 b a gooner: The door handles can be fixed pretty easily, I only found out this after one of mine fell on the ground and boke off some paint!!!! GRRRRR

    As jwhat says, yours is a later car so you won't have the BLB Engine.

    Mine is a 2006 06 plate and it has a BRE engine, so yours should be ok.

    It was an option before 2006 i think, so probably doesn't have it.

    If you want Isofix it's an easy retro fit - I done it myself, took me 5 minutes.

    The light in the 12v socket won't work off the same fuse - Try changing the fuse before ordering a new one.


    As for the door handle, i glued it back, but need to do it again....:keule:

    It was just the anchor point in the back i fitted - Cost £40 from Audi. Not sure if you can retro fit the front off switch? Give your local main dealer a call, they'll know more.

    My fag lighter didn't work, was just the fuse. Think light is on different circuit that comes on when lights on.
