    Hi all, new poster here!

    My beloved 1990 911 C4 cab is going in for an engine rebuild and some other restoration work so I've opted for the next best thing as a replacement, a 3.0tdi A4 cab (one of my favourites!).

    I think I've found the one, it's a 2006 3.0 TDi Quattro Sport with:

    leather,
    parking,
    Bose,
    Sat-nav (6.5" screen)
    manual
    heated seats (not sure if that's a standard?)
    metallic
    17"
    FSH
    Last serviced late last year.

    Any buying advice would be very welcome anyone, especially any specific A4 B7 3.0TDi cab pointers or what to look for in the service history?

    Thanks for reading,

    DG

    If you have access to VAG-COM be good if you could check the car out.
    The 3.0 TDI from 2004 to 2007 suffers sometimes with injector issues. They weep and you end up with white smoke coming from the car and poor fuel economy. Only cured really by replacement of the injectors.
    If you get the car upto normal running temp and leave it idling for a minute or so if it starts smoking then the car has an issue.

    Thanks for reading desertstorm! I don't have access to VAG-COM I'm afraid, thanks for the white smoke tip though, I'll certainly look out for it.
