jmikeyh Posted December 29, 2022 Share Posted December 29, 2022 Hi all, Picked up an A6 2012 a few weeks ago. The car is in quite good condition and was well looked after by the previous owner. It is at 120k miles, I've researched a little bit about things to be checking and replacing at around this interval and I've checked over the service record and everything looks in order. Everything in the "Additional work" section has been ticked as done in the last 40k apart from Haldex oil and multitronic oil. The car did also have a new rear diff, wet clutch and dual mass flywheel replaced (at over 3k in cost) last year, don't know if this means that the haldex/multitronic oil will have been changed at this time as well. My mechanical knowledge is lacking a bit here. With that in mind, what are the things I should be looking for specifically to maintain what is currently a great condition motor with no major quibbles? At least that I've noticed in the few weeks I've been driving it. I've spent a few hours today underneath the car inspecting the MOT advisory of a corroded rear axle, wire brushing it and coating it in a few layers of hammerite. I also need to replace the cotton splash guard in the centre of the car behind the engine. Any pointers appreciated, cheers Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
