Could be the one!!

28 posts in this topic

Hi Guy's,

As some of you know I wanted to get rid of my E60 530d M Sport and come back to an Audi.

I have found a 2009 (59) A5 2.0 TDi S line 170bhp Manual with 44k on the clock.

Used Cars - 2009 Audi A5 2.0 TDI S Line 5dr - LEATHER - 3G NAV - PHONE - XENONS Silver

Question is, what do you think and any major service work coming soon as it has done 44k?

Any feedback would be appreciated :)

thanks

Looks lovely and pretty good money I reckon for an 09 car. What were they new?

60k is the big one, so as long as it's got a full main dealer history, I'd say it's fine. As it's with a supermarket, I'd guess it's come straight from the end of a finance deal as a company car or similar.

Not sure what they were new but I can not find one with the same spec and more importantly all the toys the Mrs is used to!!!!

What needs to be done at 60k?

will the cambelt be due next year? I'm sure on my A4 it was 5 years...

Just seeing if we can do a deal with my px. Finger crossed :)

At that mileage I'd allow for brake discs/pads in the not too distant future, if you have the full reg and it's local plates on it you may well be able to find out last mileage change ... assume they also have to sell with minimum 4mm tyres ?

Lot of car for the money but what a bloody awful website!

Just to play devils advocate, is the swap a good one?

I was just going to say the same as Booster .... sometimes it better to stick with the devil you know (take no notice of me, I've no got about three cars I want to own once I can get rid of the X5 and don't need the extra seats +++ )

Just looked at your sig (on tapatalk). Doesn't sound a bad bid to be fair.

Having gone from an A5 to a BMW, you would be losing a refined, six cylinder engine for a raspy four pot and losing all steering feedback.....

Changing for economy doesn't always make financial sense: The depreciation on the existing car is realised (as you have found out) and you instantly lose £1500 driving off the forecourt in the new one.

Im guessing that the BMW is giving you around 38mpg average and the Audi will return around 45mpg average.

That is a lot of visits to the garage to make it worthwhile.

you are definitely right but also not looking forward to repair bills once the warranty runs out on the bimmer as its an expensive beast....

I do love driving it but always known Audi's and repair bills not as big as the BMW.

Only think I spotted from pics was mixed tyres - Dunlop Sport Maxx and Bridgestone Potenza. Less of an issue being non quattro

I dont think its going to happen now as they are not able to offer any more and I am too tight to cough up the extra dough!!!!

Get yourself a quote to get your warranty extended on the BM, not always as bad as you think for the peace of mind ..... although when you get the itch to change, it's hard to resist

Yep....I have had the itch for the past couple of months.

Warranty is £500 for the year :(

I'd see a doctor about that if I were you.

I was going to mention going from powerful 6 to a droney 4.

Servicing and repair wise, you'll be using an independent anyway? As you do for the BM? So that'll save you some cash.

Went to see the car today and what a difference in power!!!!

Sorry not for me:(

I have been spoilt...

Looks like I might keep the BM,,,for now anyway.

A shame for you but do think you've made the right decision ..... something more interesting will come along when you least expect it - and dont forget to shop around for your warranty extension +++
