    Hey, I got an A4 1.8 R reg. It had done 266k miles and it runs like a beauty. Just recently put my car in the garage for a mot. Bad news :crying:, it need a new power steering rack kit which cost around £300. I think my car still got at least 2 years left to drive beautifully. Is it worth keeping my car or should consider buying another second-hand car??

    I'm very tight on money. Any advice would be nice?

    ya who knows if the next car you buy something else may be wrong or going wrong, sounds like you have a good car there. at least you know what your car is like.

    is it £300 inc fitting, whats the price of the new part?

    £300 is no biggy mate. If you're happy with the rest of the car it's a known quantity

    Thanks for the advice everybody. I had taken it into consideration but I'm afraid I'm going to sell it by parts. Just spent 200 on a golf 1.9 tdi, mot till october and cheaper to run. My plan is to save as much as i can till october to buy a newer and better A4, I'm too attached to audi's. RIP to my first car:crying:.

    Thank again.
