    Hi Folks,

    I will pick up a 2010 A4 B8 Avant 1.8TFSI (CVT box) 110k miles in the next few days, it is coming from a dealer and has full audi service history. Are there any big item i should consider checking or replacing, before or after my 3 month warranty? i don't plan on engine modding this vehicle past making it run as cleanly as possible. Any advise will be greatly appreciated.

    thanks
    Jim

    It all depends where you get parts,which parts you will replace and who will do the job....hard to say, between 400-1000 with job... If no service record, i would ask 500 discount, if answer no, i would walk away
