    Hi,

    I'm looking at swapping my 2005 A3 2.0 tdi S line for a 2008 2.7 Le Mans A6 I've found. The only problem with it is that it has 160k on the clock. Is this too high ? The car has FSH and has only had one owner (presumably a company car ?).
    My A3 has 150k on the clock and has given me no problems, although I think the flywheel in the DSG box may need replacing soon!

    Cheers

    Probably be better to ask on the A6 forum for the things to look out for?

    A6 does not have DSG box it's fitted with the variable belt multitronic or as they say in the trade multicronic.. not the most reliable of boxes even if oil changes made as per service schedule.. Personally I'd stay well clear...

    at 160k you cant have many miles of life left in it before a rebuild surely?
