I am now in Germany and I would like to have it because I maybe want to travel to my parents once each month, it is around 2000 KM (one way) of driving. Another reason is that it looks good and also the Avant model is big, so I can carry lots of bags and other stuff
The roads are good, so I am not worried about that, but I see what you mean, if I want to drive in winter then it is better with Quattro.
About the fuel, it is around 1,2 Euro/liter, I think it is OK with a 1.8 liters engine or?
Talking about the engine, could it be that the 1.8 liters engine consumes lot? or shall I go for a 6 cylinders?
Another thing I would like to ask, what shall I look after when I buy, I mean the options in the car, as navigation, rain sensor, s-line package, shall I go for Tiptronic gear?, this information could help me lot.
The 1.8 T is a good choice with enough power and good fuel economy compared to the 3.0 v6(fuel guzzler) but the TDI engines are good too and have a very high torque ouput!!
If you are buying new i would go for the s-line package with sat nav, but i have heard the Tiptronic gearbox can be trouble- some and is not as strong as the manual if you plan to upgrade the power if say you got the 1.8T (ECU remapped or chipped to a higher Bhp output) !!
