We loved our 06 3.0tdi Quattro manual.. Only getting rid of it now we've got an S5 cab. Stunning car to drive, holds the road, power AND economy from the weasel.. Don't think you'll regret it!
in fact ours is available!
I'm just trading up from a T4 Transporter and am in a quandary between an A4 3.0 and a T5 4motion!!
