    Hi, I am toying with idea to upgrade and get a S6 avant...what are common areas to look out for when inspecting the car? How reliable is the V10, and if somethiung goes what is it, how expensive to fix?

    Looking at 2006/2007 approx 50-60k miles...

    Thanks
    Simon

    I have a 2007 car with 83,000 miles on - apart from servicing and a couple minor warranty jobs (new shock absorber and a button) it has not missed a beat. Still drives like a 20,000 mile car.

    thanks - on an average year what is the cost for 'normal routine servicing' - assuming annual mileage of between 10-15k?
