    Hi,

    Looking at some Audi A6's. My requirements are 2.5 V6 power plant. Quattro a bonus. Avant a bonus too. Manual or Auto.

    I've also been doing some reading about CVT and reliability. It has put me off a little. How likely is a 2002/3 A6 with high-ish miles to have had the 7-clutch and software upgrade? Anyway of knowing without paperwork?

    Am I right that Quattro doesn't use the CVT system?

    My old A6 2.5 was a 2001 Manual.

    I know Adamss24 is selling an A6 for a decent price, but i'd like a newer (2001+) model. Am I being too picky? lol.

    Would be looking to do some mods/power upgrades to it but not sure yet.

    I'm not sure a 1.9TDi would be quick enough for me and my driving habits? To me, i prefer 'V' engines over 'in-line' engines everyday. Hence my 3.9 V8i Disco.

    Ta.

    I have a FWD 2003 a6 avant as well, black, i will take a few pictures of it and upload them on the forum, 142k, SE spec, auto gearbox, cruise, climate, rear parking sensors,etc. What is your budget ? I will advertise it towards the end of the week...

    Most CVT 2.5 tdi had already the upgrade as the engine produces much more torque than a 1.9Tdi so they failed quicker ! With every failure audi upgraded the clutch pack...
