    I seek the collective wisdom of the A6 owners out there. My 3.0 n/a B6 A4 is 10 years old now and I could do with a bit more space so I'm looking at a 2008 (57 plate) A6 3.0 tdi Le Mans tiptronic Avant with 78000 miles. What kind of value do you think I should be thinking about paying? Looks to be in very nice condition but I have to travel quite a bit to see it :)

    I think it comes on 19" wheels but it would be good to know how small I can go on the wheels for a second set of rims with winter tyres. looks like 18" is no problem but what about 17". would there be wheel clearance issues?

    cheers

    Thanks for the reply mate. If it makes you feel any better I'd be shafted about €9000 just for bringing it into Finland :) Then pay a bit more than the £400 yearly to keep it on the road! It's a LHD car I'm looking at. Phoned today and found out it's been converted to LHD so still had RHD lights and odometer in miles so not ideal. 4 months warranty and seller is more than happy for me to send the RAC to do an essentials plus check on it. I'm not 100% sure about the conversion though. Would I always be imagining tracking issues or noises etc? Maybe it would be totally fine. hmm..

    I appreciate the input dar. I'm assuming that a full RAC with prior knowledge of the car should raise any issues. what is it they assumption is the mother of? erm.. :)
