Need some input on buying an 03 Audi please

Hey guys, im thinking about picking up a 2003 Audi a4 1.8t quattro with a manual transmission and 4 cyl. It has 110,000km and looks like it in really nice shape. Im not worried about big power or anything like that. Can anyone give me any input on this car such as maintenance with 110k on the car or anything else. This would be greatly appreciated. thanks

High mileage? New car? It's averaged less than 20,000km/year. That sounds pretty average to me, if not less.

you will find lots of 2003 or lower audis for 80-100km if you look hard enough, 130 on a car full of electronics, specially with a reputation of them failing, like audi is a bit much.

Thats true 20,000km is a high average, for living in vancouver/dt/burnaby/richmond it's pretty hard to do over 20,000km, maybe if you live further and do a lot of highway miles,

Is the price really that good? i'm expecting something like 9-11K

I had that car and it was great except for a little turbo lag. Mileage seems a little high but are they highway miles?
