Hi all,
Iím looking into buying a Q5 and have a budget up to £18k (possibly £20k at a stretch). Based on my budget a lot of the cars Iím finding are from around 2009/10, or 2012ish models with about 80K miles.

Iíve found two models that Iím interested in, both 2009, but Iím having a dilemma about which is the better option. One is an SE with a pan roof as an added extra, 45k miles for £15.5k. The other option is an S-Line with pretty much every extra there is, 94k miles for £18k. Both have had 1 or 2 owners and the listings state FSH.

Normally Iíd avoid high the 94k model as Iíd see that as high mileage, but reading some of the comments on here thatís not too high a mileage. Are there any views on that and should I expect a big hit on the re-sale value due to it being around 100k?

Any advice on things I should look out for would be much appreciated.

I don't think big mileage affects the Q5, but what extras are we talking about, and what engine and year. Your description does not allow for much comment and the model had a facelift in 2012.
