My blue 07 quattro has had oil change every 6000 miles, but at over 230k on the clock was wondering if this could be the time to sell.

My wife tapped a white van at Christmas, Insurance wrote off the car and is now cat S.

I have been unable to locate a correct replacement to date and at present has a temp fix.

Car has a set of 16" winter steel wheels with Michelin tyres in addition to original 17" Alloys.

I'm a retired military engineer. The photo comes via Facebook - I don't have a Facebook account, my previous employment prohibited it.

Any ideas?

Hi Clive.....welcome aboard !

One for @Steve Q to answer I reckon, he's the high mileage Audi advocate and sure he will convince you to keep it and do it up

Many thanks. Its only damage is the front bumper.

It has unusual features like a solar panel sunroof that runs fans when the car is switched off. (2 localy purchased front bumper didn't fit!)

Has had EGR deleted and DPF emptied. Is about 200 bhp.

Trevor is right, my a6 is on its way back from the moon 🤣 it's on 335k. If it's reliable then I'd say keep it. Especially if it's got Rare extras. Deleting the dpf and egr should make it more reliable to be honest. Plus bare in mind selling a cat s will be harder and potential buyers will be annoying abd want it for nothing. In which case id say keep it 🙂

Many thanks for your honest reply. I've owned it for over 6 yes, use it for trips to Southern Germany in addition to my daily drive. It gets washed weekly (to my neighbours amusement) and polished monthly.

I take care of mine, too. But do admit it needs a wash currently!
