    Did a deal on this yesterday. Moro blue pearl on 110k with full history (dealer is a VAG specialist and as part of the deal having the cambelt changed before collection).

    It's an Avant 190 Sport Quattro. Has 1/2 Alcantara interior, 6 disc changer, electric windows all round other than that I don't see any additional options.

    Going to change the oil and filter as a matter of course soon after we get it (for my peace of mind) and hook it up to take some oil pressure readings.

    Don't think we are going to bother mapping it as it just "feels nice" as it is. Is it still worth putting a panel filter, Forge TIP & Recirc Valve on it for longevity sake?

    It's missing the little rubber mat from behind the cigarette lighter the drivers seat base shows wear and there is a tiny cut in the rear NS door card which isn't visible when the door is closed. Only other thing is some of the climate buttons are worn (can you replace these?)

    £10 delivered for them all. The panel can be unscrewed from the rear and the button can be pulled out and replaced.

    If you have the mat James I would definitely be interested. Mike, regarding the buttons let me get it home and figure out which buttons it needs and I'll let you know :)

    Pick it up this Sunday once the cam belt has been done and the heater flap motors sorted.

    From memory it's the drivers side temp up/down and the central fan speed up down buttons that are worn.

    Which ones do you need WelshQuattro as we could split them if you need different ones to me.

    Are those buttons for dual zone?

    Not a problem.

    A friend of mine has a well used A4 which he is getting shot of soon. May see if he will let me have his buttons! lol

    Are they from a second unit? I take it you can't buy replacement buttons?

    It's not in the console which is where I was thinking it was, so I'm not sure now. If I find it I'll let you know.
