    Hi.
    I'm looking into buying a B8 3.0 TDI Quattro soon and was just wondering if there are any known issues/problems to look for when buying?
    Any advice would be great.

    I guess it would depend on age, but I've had mine from new for almost 3 years, done 33K miles and no problems what so ever!

    Great car in my opinion

    Obviously I'll be looking at Tyres, Brakes etc.
    I've also heard that the Chain Tensioner can be an issue and is very expensive to fix - this could be very rare though so may not need to worry.

    People always spend their time looking at Tyres and Brakes and the usual wear and tear items when you'd be much better off looking at panel gaps, lines and any signs of paintwork which would indicate a major crash repair.
