    I bought the 180 because it fell my way and all the toys and service records were correct.
    I have a a6 2.5tdi Quattro sport the only thing my car doesnt have is the heated seats zenons and the parking sensors .
    Other than that when i bought it the fuel pump went and that was a costly expense but i was helped by ADAMS24 on this forum who came and fitted it for me and the car runs sweet now.
    I wanted the quattro for sure and am glad i held out for this one as in the snow here in Leeds it was awesome and hills near work i have struggled with were like non existent.
    The v6 tdi is smooth and that is why i like it so much as its refined but still not sluggish.
    Have fun but make sure you get the car checked out as repairs can be expensive.
    ADAMS24 is your man on these he deffo knows his stuff and a lot of forum members rely on his wisdom.(based in north london)
    Where are you based ?
