Getting a new car cos baby on the way!!!! Audi A4?

Right so im gonna be a Dad in just under 3 weeks now!

Im selling my current car as its a 206 GTI180 and its too small.

Ive been looking at Audi A4's second hand.

Ive got my eye on one but its done 85000 miles but got full service history 2.0l petrol, 1 owner, black with full black leather interior and a few other toys etc.

Would this high milage in an Audi be ok? what do you guys think?

    If your looking to buy something with such high mileage, think you should consider a diesel. maybe if you like the A4, they do a 1.9 diesel which is ok. Also do well over 100k without problems, assuming its been looked after.

    Also consider the BMW 320 diesel, a great engine.

    Yep = VAG cars are bullet proof. As said on a previous thread my old Mk IV golf GTi T done 110,000 without major hiccups before I gave it back.

    The one thing I will say is that the 2.0l lump is underpowered and uneconomical - try and get a 1.8T or a diesel instead.

    You'll easily get another 100K out of an A4 IMO

    if it's been serviced reguarly it'll be fine.

    what would concern me more is the resale-ability. how long are you planning on keeping it?

    how much is this motor?

    I brought an 53' Audi A4 Avant/Estate 1.9td 6spd 130bhp at Christmas for £8600
    It had 70k on the clock but drives like a brand new car and am very impressed,
    It pulls like a train too and drives beautifully,
    The dash trim and seats etc look like they have only covered 30k max wear wise!
    The whole cars like that TBH so i highly recommend one!

    Audi's are excellent.

    We have had 2 and have one now, they are brilliant cars, very comfortable and quite economical too for the type of car that they are.

    Good luck with the baby too mate.

    Car seats leave really bad impressions on leather seats, leather seats are horrendous to get baby vomit out of the crevices, and in hot weather they are ovens as i know through personal experience but good luck and good health with the baby.

    I have an A4 1.8T Sport Quattro, very nice car indeed.

    I have had no problems what so ever but i have only owned it a few months, mines a 2003 with 40k on the clock but high mileage isn't a problem for Audi's especially not with fsh.

    My dad has the 130bhp diesel as a company car and that is equally as good and very economical and has also just reached 150k, not bad going for a car just over 3 years old.

    You will notice a vast difference in build quality over your pug but maybe a slight loss of the fun factor.

    IMO you can't go wrong with a well looked after Audi.

    As said already really, but personally I don't like getting high mile cars regardless of model. What age is it?

    I have a golf (same platform) and I have the 130bhp PD TDi engine that for a couple of hundred notes I remapped to 175bhp and 275Ib/ft torque.

    It still does 55mpg but pulls like a train, it is pretty quick, it does 20mpg more than an equivelent performance petrol.

    VAG do a 150bhp TDi engine too!!!!, these remap easily up to 190bhp
