2010 Audi A6 - good for COE extension ?

Recommended Posts

As above , thinking of getting a 2010 Audi A6 with 1 year depreciation of 12.5 k , mileage below 90K .

 

Cost 42k , is this a good buy ? Easy to maintain ?

 

Is the Audi A6 good model to extends COE for another 10 years ?

The only thing I need to say is, do you see any coe Audi on the roads? What about Mercedes vs bmw? One has to pay to be different.

No harm renewing its COE if you have been taking care of the car well.

Audi parts are more expensive. You can compare the shocks absorbers pricing with merc/bmw. But we dont change shocks every year. A6 in 2010 should be the older model, the newer ones are from late 2011 onwards

trying selling after 3 to 5 years, then you see tears when comparing with E or 5er.

Cheap for what you get. 

 

Easy to maintain just push to AD to fix.

 

Not cheap to maintain. 

 

Not good to extend COE.

Many Audi A6 in China, so parts can easily get from TB. Shouldn't be an issue. Buy in advance.

 

I have a spare radiator fan from TB for my Volvo ride BTW as it failed before and I am keeping the car for a while.

Heard some many first hand stories about the infamous gear issues with Audi/ VW cars. You may want to reconsider this move.

 

I personally owned a VW Passat. Was still within warranty. Total ownership period is 9 months. Send to AD workshop more than 6 times due to various issues. Each time was not really good experience.

 

Just sharing my 2 cents

A6 is an underrated & comfy car and not as ubiquitous as the 5 or E

 

But pre-2016 A6s were using CVT which i would not recommend

 

The 7-spd wet clutch DSG on post-2016 cars is excellent. Smooth, responsive and problem-free. Don't be put off by those horror DSG stories. Those were probably the dry clutch 7-spd on lower spec cars. B4 my current A6, i had a GTI using wet clutch 6-spd and it was excellent

I would personally stick to conventional auto - Asin, ZF (especially the 8 speed) etc.

 

Won't risk with a DSG especially if keeping beyond 10 years and losing the PARF.

The Audi A6 is a good solid car. Get this with intent to renew COE only if you have the financial means to maintain it.

Actually i think that goes for any conti car in the last 10yrs. If one just wants a reliable, affordable. old workhorse for the daily commute, forget buying a badge as there are better, practical options out there

Actualli hor, someone in MCF oso shared that their 8.5yr Lexus GS450h oso kaputz

 

So it's not juz conti but rather the more tech and gizmos, the more reliability suffers
