Considering buy an A4

    After 2.5 years of owning an Audi A3 sportback I'm considering the idea of buying an A4 Avant.

    The main reason for the change is for extra space both in the cabin and the boot, although I'm wondering from spec sheets I've read just how much extra space there actually is in the cabin? Being. 6'1" I don't give the person sat behind me much leg room in the A3 would this be much different in an A4?

    I own the 2.0T s-tronic so my first choice would be the very similar engined A4 either manual or Multitronic, but I'm finding this less common on the used market. The 2.0 diesel 143bhp seems to be the most popular example out there, but I just don't think this would have enough power to what I've been used to. Plus I don't think I do enough miles to justify a diesel over a petrol.

    Can people tell me what to be looking out for during my search? Any model year changes that would mean different spec eg. LED rear tail lights?

    Im probably looking at a budget of £18k.

    Any useful tips or advice would be greatly recieved.

    I have the saloon and legroom is still poor,i am around the same size as you and have my seat far back(not furthest position back posible either) and legroom is not at a premium behind me,the wifes old focus had more leg room behind when i had the site in the furthest position back.The LED rear lights as far as im aware changed around 59plate,i have them on mine.

    Hi there. As you know, I have an Avant and am 6 foot 2. This is the first car I've ever had where I have to move the seat forward to reach the pedals. When im on a long run and the seat is right back with the cruise on, there isn't much room behind me but if I have passengers and move it forward, there's still enough room behind and I'm still comfy.

    Although mine is an 09 that didn't have LEDs, I paid Audi to fit them.

    Not sure if you got my pm but if your still interested in mine, I'll email you the details. It is a 120 but I have a local company who can reprogramme it up to about 150 I'm told with the car being well under your £18000 budget.
