    Hello all,
    I am new to Audi after always driving VW's. I need a car as my LT35 is too big and thirsty to be driving everyday. I have found the A4 Avant Sline, . I am a novice with regards Audi's and their pricing etc so could someone offer me any advice. The car is firm at £1500 but it will the clutch pedal sits high and the seller suggests in 5k will need replacing. Its covered 102k miles and as good history. I know MOT's are probaly not a great pointer but its passed every year with not many advisories. I am to look at the car today but would like to know if I should go or if its a waste of time.

    I can't seem to put a link to car on here

    Thank you

    All depends, what engine. What spec. Is it a quattro?

    With a whole host of dodgy 2.0 engine codes that loose oil pressure diesel or petrol and a 1.9 derv that can suffer sudden catastrophic upper conrod bearing spot welding .

    It’s a 1.8t S line

    I’ve not yet seen it but the dude says the clutch pedal is high, not slipping though and sees it needing a new clutch soonish. Another thing as I’m not sure if it’s a DMF. From experience with a dub I had it was rather costly

    Make sure fsh and done every 10k and should be fine for the money, if clutch goes stick a single stage clutch conversion in there and then start tuning it :grin:
    Saying that I had a 1.9tdi with a 185k on it and although the clutch would slip every now and then it was still on the original when I traded it in...

    More narrow so experience high loading .


    They're probably OK with the right oil and max year intervals , but proof of exact oil used when just a service stamp means it could even happen to me despite my sometimes 6 month as little as 1,300 miles servicing .
