    to buy or not to buy --Mods, please close

    so, i have a 2003 2.7tt allroad offered to me. Its got a check engine light and broken swaybar links. 101000 miles on the odo. Automatic =[

    i can probably get into it for around the 5k mark.. Good deal? bad deal?

    I don't know much about the 2.7tt.. sounds fast, and sounds like a hot mess

    You're right, I don't know much about allroads, thats why I was asking questions, for which i got most of them answered.

    Thanks,

    Mods, please close this thread.
    Someone got butt hurt off of a post I made?

    When it comes down to it, all these answers would have been answered in a 5 minute google search. They are an extreme maintenance pig of a vehicle, hence my first post saying for 5k, I'd let it go.

    Sorry if you've never realized how much of a sarcastic asshole I tend to be on MIVE. Although I can provide some good information from time to time.

    If you're asking that question, then apparently you know nothing about all-roads.

    I'd really say it's not flippable if you have to do any maintenance to it and definitely not if it's the suspension.

    I'd talk them down say because of the air ride and replace it with arrnot. Be a big selling plus to know that those have been replaced.

    If it runs and drives fine now then do it. VW/Audi cars throw CELs for everything. Expensive parts on that are turbos, broke timing chain, or blown air suspension, all of which are going to be obvious to someone like yourself. Buy it, clean it, fix it, drive it, sell it. Hurry up though, tax return ballers will blow through there cash in the next 3 months.

    I still think it's all in all a terrible idea, mostly because the suspension. Can you just put like a stock a6 suspension or something on them?

    I say go for it... The last A6 I bought was a 2.7t. I ended up having to put two new heads on it because the belt let go but I replaced them and still made a couple grand. I sold my 01 for 7500 I think... She was minty clean though

    There was one at grlkq a couple months back, still had suspension on it etc, no crash damage so i assume engine blew?

    Must be it. I know I've seen a few for sale that were swapped to 6 speeds from an auto.

    From what I know, 2.7TT's are solid motors and only have turbo problems in the A4 Chasis due to the engine bay room and heat dissipation.

    What are current "good" condition ones going for?
    kbb lists them 6.4k - 7.6k
    all wheel drive cars sell for a premium up here tho. winters are extra long up here and Houghton is pretty much built on the side of a hill, so you are either going up or down. last 4x4 pickup i sold was a ratty 85 diesel with low compression and i got almost 2 grand out of it.

    i dunno? basically from what i figured out its an a6 avant that has airbags for additional clearance I wouldn't want to drive it, i would pick it up, haul it north 500 miles, fix it, flip it.

    I just know that the 2.7TT is good at two things
    making power, and emptying your wallet

    any more opinions?
