I'm looking to buy the above and am having a really hard time (been on the Audi site and checked lots of forums etc) finding out the actual details of at what mileage services are due and what needs to be done? i.e at 250,000 does it need a new timing belt? etc..
I'm not that flash on car terms (my apologies) but I hope this makes sense to you guys....
I live in Switzerland and am still learning the languages here (English not widely spoken inmy area) and want to know what I'm looking at.
The price they have advertised is 8,700 CHF
What am I looking in the coming months ahead/year or so...
Personally, I would not wait that long, I have seen belts fail before that mileage on 1.8T (VW) engines.
The previous owner may or may not have followed the recommended service intervals... if in doubt (or you have no actual records of what-was-done-when, then start with a t-belt & water pump, as well as tune-up items (spark plugs, air & fuel filter, oil & filter).
Then, following the service chart with the 16K intervals.
Brakes, suspension, hoses, steering etc are all un-known items, as driving style, environment, age... all affect vehicles differently between owners.
