    Hello everyone im not new to the site but not been on in ages, just bought this 02 plate A4 Avant 3.0 Quattro and have a few questions.

    Can anyone tell me if this is Sphere blue? i have looked for the paint code but cant find anything?
    What are the recommended service items i should be doing? Its had a timing belt at 60k and a recent service (mileage is 85k)
    but when i dip the dipstick its as if hardly any oil comes up, what oil is recommended for topping up? again i have looked it the manual and it says 'VW 502 00' which i think castrol 5w 40 will cover, can anyone confirm?
    Finally are there any pics of modded A4s in this colour?

    Many thanks!

    Hey Padz, welcome on. I've been on here for a couple of years now since I got my A4. Bit older than yours but still 4 rings ;-). I am also in Inverness.
