by far the biggest expense is the front suspension,as ALL bushes WILL need replacing at 80k.cost £2400(yes pounds sterling)then the transmission,if car is hammered.£2100.BUT this is common TO ALL VW PRODUCT NOT JUST AUDI.but same could be said of MOST cars,as they all have major faults waiting to happen.(why would they build a car to last ?????
MAKE SURE YOUR TRANSMISSION FLUID IS FULL/ADJUST YOUR LINKAGE SO REVERSE LINES UP/REPLACE THE TRANSMISSION FILTER AND FLUID.NEVER PAY $100S-$1000S TILL YOU TRY THE ABOVE BECAUSE THEY WILL TAKE YOUR MONEY.
The automatic cars (at least the tiptronics, which came out in 98) require the transmission to be up to a specific temperature, which must be monitored while changing the fluid - this requires VagCom, the VW/Audi diagnostic software (I'm not making this up). I am not sure whether the non-tiptronic cars had to have this as well or if it can be done as any other transmission - best bet is to call a European specialty mechanic and ask them - a dealer will kill you with labor rates. Do not just drain and refill though, without finding out first whether the VagCom procedure must be used.
