    Thanks for that dan, whats the deal with milleage, what do people think of ones that are over 100k ?

    I really want to get owners views of them and so on

    I am not too fussed as my plan is to run it for a year, then take it off road to be powered up a bit more.

    with good service over 100k is fine

    but with the s4, expect to do some tlc

    bushes etc etc

    chassis and engine should be fine however...

    Whenever time you going to see a S4 make sure you take a laptop with you with VAG cable that will tell you alot about the engine and other bits :)

    i bought my s4 with 78000 on the clock its now got 91000 and im starting to replace all the expensive stuff on the car. suspension arms, springs, hoses, siezed calipers,n75, maf sensor. it may be better to look for a higher mileage car that has had most of the work done. it may save you some money in the future hth
