History
FSH
recently bought it, 100k, fsh, very tidy throughout, usual niggles;
slgiht knocking at full lock/low speed , through steering column
front bushes all worn, probably needs new arms as well.
Dvr window regulator failed 1 week after purchase, absolute pain to get sorted , happened new years eve exactly 30 seconds after all the local garages closed..apparently it is common, Audi told me to replace both regulators, which were described as modified, and wanted £1500 to do it.. in 2008 the original supplier of regulators went bust so audi had to source elsewhere and modify them to fit.. apparently.
probably needs a carbon clean. runs very well, but am aware of direct injection carbon build up so will get it done anyway..

awesome car... love it.

She looks stunning, I personally love the standard car with just some very subtle mods.....and as far as I know this engine is not subject to carbon build up, that is more common on the V6s I think....
