Advice on buying an Audi plz


Recommended Posts

Hello to all Audi owners, fans and suporters here!! 😃 I'm a newbie here and I am looking for some advice please on buying an Audi. I think the A4 is the model I'm after but are there other models that look very similar to the A4 and maybe even better?? 
Audi is the car that I really like the look of and have my mind set on but I don't know much about them. I have had a few VW Golfs over the years but I'm sure there are some differences between them and the Audi not to mention the age gap.

Im looking for something around 150bhp - 200bhp but would like to know which models of engines these are in a diesel and which ones are the most tuneable or easiest/safest to remap etc without causing any problems.

I'm looking at 2008 upwards with an approx price bracket of €3000 ‐ €7000 depending on the specs etc.

I would like to know a bit about the different engines that fall into this category and also if there front wheel drive or 4 wheel drive etc.

Reliability and common issues are something else I would like to know about along with how hard it is to find spare parts (from breakers/dismantlers) for the specific models that fall into this category.

If anyone can help me out with this I would appreciate it very much. Thanks

Hi Steve,

 

Thanks, much appreciated. I had a quick look but will have to look at that video again as been very busy lately. From the bit I seen though, there seems to be a good bit of info in that video that should be quite useful to me. Though I have since been slightly distracted by the A3 and A5 models but I haven't got a chance to really take a look at them and haven't taken much notice of them before.  I think I will be sticking with going for the A4 in the end as it may suit me better on the pocket I feel. Anyway Steve thanks again for that. 

By any chance do you know if some of the other engines are interchangeable in the A4 TDI model and how I can make sure I am looking at a B8 engine when I go to look at one for sale?

No probs glad I could help

Do you or does anyone here know if engines are interchangeable in the A4 TDI B8 model and how I can make sure I am looking at a 2.0L TDI A4 B8 engine when I go to look at one for sale?

Good info in the video by the way and I have took note of a few things mentioned there. I'm sticking with going for an Audi A4 2.0L TDI B8 and after watching the video I will be aiming for a 2010 upwards. I will just have to make a decision on the sports line or sports package versions when I come across them.

If anyone can tell me if it is safe to remap the Audi A4 2.0L TDI B8 from 140bhp - 190bhp then I would be happy as I have seen one I'm interested in with this spec and I'm interested in this. I would like to stick with the more common horse power engine like 140bhp (Remapped) in order to be more easily able to find replacement parts if or when needed.
