    I bought my A6 not long ago. I got a 1998 2.8 V6 that has done a lot of motorway miles (140,000 roughly) but it still runs like a dream. I managed to get it for £2300 but then spent another £3000 doing it up.

    The only real problem I had when I bought it was the suspension. I upgraded the standard shock absorbers (which were completely shagged) for Koni FSD shocks. They're pricey but worth it.

    There were few other minor things like a jammed windscreen washer jet, new wiper blades etc but the engine can't be faulted.

    I'm not sure about the diesels but I think if you don't mind doing a little cosmetic work then you can get a real bargain.
