Paying for the fuel !!

A lot of us had B7/B7 S4's on this site. I loved mine to bits and kept it for over 5 years. Economy will be around 18 on the whole and a chunk better on long motorway runs. Town work kills it.

Not too many problems around but it's a bit complex lump so it could be expensive if something is wrong.

Is it a private purchase or through a dealer?

check for rattles on start up! not common but happens

it can mean a very expensive timing issue, not from experience just what ive read

Early engines had a problem with the timing chain tensioners IIRC.

I've had a 2003 B6 S4 followed by a 2005 B6 S4 - which have the same engine as the B7 S4 - and not had any real problems in the 3 years I owned them (just a faulty TV tuner on delivery).

Make sure it comes with an Audi extended warranty. My B6 S4 (same engine) was in the dealer for over a month having various rattles investigated and then the cam chains and other auxilliary chains replaced (engine out job).

Don't let that put you off - great, great car +++
