    I'm going to buy a 02 A4 3.0Q Sport on monday and i was just wondering if there is any i should look out for? I know all the usal things to check for, it's just specific problems with the engine and the quattro 4WD running gear i need help with.

    Any info would be helpful.

    thanks:icon_thumright:

    I bought one couple of months back and was expecting a few bits to do but the £700~ for the front cat pipe hurt a bit. It was cracked and blowing slightly but also one of the 2 cats in the pipe was falling apart inside so had to be replaced :( Worth a listen to make sure its not blowing up front!

    not too bad. the only problem i have with it are the alloys look like someone has took an angle grinder to them and the bumpers need a respray but i was going to put 18" rs4's and the ultra sport body kit on anyway so not to bothered about those. apart from that, it's just needing a good oil, brake service and the right hand cat replaced.
