its used about a 2010 model with about 75k on clock for about £11000
The B8/B8.5 platform is shared between the A4 and A5, so any issues with the A4 largely apply to the A5.

A biggie is the oil consumption issue on a large proportion of 2.0TFSI engines made between 2007-2011.
Whay about the 3.0 tdi? @DrEskimo

Heard they are pretty bullet proof. Don't drive diesels so no experience im afraid. Usual DPF and sensors on all diesels I imagine applies.

Driven a 2009 2.0TFSI and now a 2015 3.0TFSI S5.
