    Default What do you think?

    Some of you may know I am looking for a new car over the past few weeks. Well something has come up, and I could use some opinions.

    Yesterday, a good friend of mine called me up and said a friend at work is selling his 2003 Audi A4 3.0 6sp. The car is in immaculate condition, silver, s-line body kit and wheels, aftermarket swaybars, and that is about it. It has had the timing belt and water pump just replaced, brakes, all major service was just done on the car basically.

    The present owner is an Audi technician who works with my friend, and he did all of the work. NOW, to what has me on the fence....the car has 90k mi on it. I spoke with my friend, and he says he would buy the car, but he can't move his Boxster, and doesn't want another car payment. He will handle all the service on the car for me if I do pick it up, and he will order all the parts for me. The guy wants $14.5k for the car.

    What do you guys think? Friend says it can go for another 80k mi if I take care of it.
