    All that matters, is how its priced. Cant comment further without :) a link...

    Over average mileage, even for the likes of an a6 which people tend do do decent miles in. If its in good nick and the price is below average to reflect that then could still be good value. No reason to think it's worn out or anything, although some parts might need changing.
    On same point, there's loads for sale so no need to pin your hopes on 1 in particular

    I've a 2014 A6 Ultra 190 S-Tronic for 3.5 years and now have 140k miles on it. Hasn't cost me a penny outside of routine service costs. Very reliable. I do wish the transmission tunnel didn't impact so much on the drivers footwell but that's about my only gripe (but check it out.....many don't notice it but if you do, it really does impact driver ergonomics).

    What price? I only ask because I've got a 2016 with similar mileage (220km) and wonder about for sale value

    I just sold my 2014 A6 Sline Avant with 68000miles privately for €15,200 if that info is any use to you.

    How easy was that to sell? I am still musing about selling mine privately. I have a 2014 A6 Black edition saloon, 62000 miles.

    Did you look for more and have to drop price? I would have been thinking ballpark same figure as you, maybe 16000. Avant might be worth a bit more than saloon though.

    I could have been unlucky but I had a lot of minor issues with mine. I had a 2015 with 60k km on it when I bought it. Every few months there would be something wrong (parking sensor error, emissions light, adblue error lights, wing mirror glass falling off (separately), fuel tank lock broken to name a few). Now some might say that it’s minor and cheap fixes but just a constant pain taking time off work to drop it to a garage or go buy a new mirror. Also got a whopper servicing bill despite the low mileage.

    Was always afraid I’d get some error message when turning it on. Also I felt it struggled to put the power down from a standing start at times (would struggle to get grip even in the dry. I had 20 inch wheels and new p zeros). To be fair, that was only the odd time when I put the foot to the floor.

    Maybe I just got a lemon.

    Since got an f30 bmw and while the interior is a bit creakier and the manual handbrake is annoying, I find the drive so much better. Idrive is better too and the Harmon Kardon is better than than the Bose in the Audi.

    I have taken mine from 56000 kms to 103000 kms in 3 years and only 1 issue, a small part in suspension got worn and was making a creaky noise over rough surfaces, 100 euro for part and fitting, although this was mates rates. Just routine servicing and 4 new tyres but thats it. Quite fond of it but I am one fot hose people always looking to change and get next car.

    Just shows how 2 people can have different experiences with same cars.

    Also shows how different previous owners have treated the car, or even if the worker in the factory that day wasn't feeling it/ Friday afternoon car.

    Yeah I’d agree and there are plenty of them for sale with 200k plus (or at least there was when I was looking) so clearly not everyone had the same issues I had. I did like it a lot but every niggle just made me fall slightly out of love with the car.

    I’d probably still have it if it was a quattro. Very nice interior and a good cruiser albeit the s line suspension and 20 inch wheels were quite hard on bad roads. My bmw is on run flat 19s and m sport suspension and feels way smoother on bumpy roads).

    It sold pretty quickly to be honest. I asked €15,500 which I think was fair as lots of other similar cars were a good bit more expensive.

    I had good pictures of it, full Audi history with all the paper work. So the first guy who had a look at it made an offer and that was it sold.

    What did you buy?

    Sounds painless so if I could repeat your experience with a saloon. Now, to consider if I would add 15k to my own for an early 18 5 series or same model A6 as I have (30k I think would get me one some time this year) or add 20k for the new model 2018 A6 or a really special 2018 5 series with high spec (35k I think in 2nd half of this year)

    Just wondering is it worth it.....4k to 5k a year to come up, sounds ok to me

    Oh I ended up buying a year old Volvo XC90. I sort of needed more space and the 7 seats.

    I don't thankfully. Can stick with what I have or buy similar only newer. Change my mind on it like the weather, and at the moment, that's really saying something.
