im getting a new car in a few months and fancyied either a vw passat 2.5 v6 tdi or ive seen a audi a4 1.9 tdi both around the same year 02 for about 3500 with high 80k on the clocks , which one would be the better one to run , ive got a seat alhambra with the ahu tdi lump in at the mo and its bullet proof , going to the 2.5 v6 tdi is a big step , is there any prone faults with these engines , or is it no question audi all the way:beerchug:

a4 all the way and 1.9 tdi far better than the 2.5 for running cost,you cant compare a passat to the a4 as the a4 is superior in every way and 02 plates are fairly priced these days.

yes just as i thought , the a4 is the face lift model 02 plate 117k on it for 3500 not bad would you say??

Fair price,and better buy than the vw also i would consider a skoda octy over any passat,its a two horse race these days for me Audi or skoda

Passat is a bit bigger inside, but not as nimble as the A4. In my view the A4 cabin styling is much nicer.
