View Full Version : Old style S6; Buying Advice?

21-10-2007, 05:20 PM
I've enjoyed my A4 for a while now but always hanker after something a bit more special and involving to drive.

After a lot of research I have decided I want to stay with Audi and I am considering a 1996 / 1997 model S6 saloon or avant with the 5 cylinder 2.2 turbo engine (ideally in light blue).

Do you think that with a budget of 4000 to 6000 I would get a good example and what are common faults / issues with these cars?

I know they are likely to drink petrol but luckily for me this isn't an issue as I have a second vehicle for daily commuting. The S6 would really just be to provide a bit of fun and take away on long trips etc...

Finally, for this price, are there any other models you would suggets that could provide as much enjoyment as the 230bhp 5 cylinder engine coupled with the quattro drive system?
