    purchasing c5 a6 2.7t 6spd

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    So after selling my a4 to buy a bmw...and after test driving 4 bmws I have realized that they are actually garbage. So I am looking at a 2002 a6 2.7t 6spd. Anything in particular that are known issues with this car?

    I have already taken notice of the pixelating cluster, rear heated seats not working and the timing belt needing to get done as it hasnt been done yet. (car has 86k on t he clock)

    Thanks

    Timing belt alone will run $1,500 to $2,000 if you don't do it yourself, other things to look out for are leaky cam seals, valve cover gaskets, motor and tranny mounts, cv boots and joints, control arms and other suspension components etc. etc. There are quite a few things to look out for, have you driven the car, how did it feel?

    The car felt pretty stable, although I was driving on side streets. I am going to drive it on the highway tomorrow when I go see the car again. There is excessive wear on the front right tire which I need to look into, I am thinking alignment. He didnt clean the engine, which I prefer when I go see a car, and didnt see any signs of leaks...but I should pull the engine cover off.

    Is there a DIY on timing belt for 2.7t?

    Yeah i was just put in the same position, as i just recently bought my 2.7 as well. Make sure you do that t-belt asap! One thing i need done on my car is the torque converter, although im not sure if it will apply to your car since its manual. Its pricey! Watch out for bad O2 sensors.

    Make sure you do proper warmups and cooldowns, before/after driving her.

    Timing belt should only cost $1000 max at a good mechanic. That's what I paid for mine and I had everything else done like coolant and whatnot (Blauparts kit).

    Well, BMWs are certainly not "garbage", but buying any used car is a risk. What price for this 86K mile unit? What features? Needs suspension work and TB, so it's definitely not ready for prime time. You should contact Stone. While anything can always happen, getting from enthusiast is better than total uncertainty.

    I'm not sure about the 4.2 but I know the 2.7T is every 75K miles. That means that I will do the TB again at ~140K - 150K.

    Just look up the recommended schedule.

    ok let me rephrase,, maybe not garbage however I would say they suffer from poor build quality. Things I wouldnt expect from them like fabric falling off a pillars, weather stripping falling off, sunroof shade coming off amd little things like that. I would also walk away from test drives very unimpressed.

    I drove the car again today and took up to highway speeds. While the seller isnt an enthusiast, it does seem as though he took care of the car. A little about the car: 2002 a6 2.7t 6spd, 86500, red with tan interior (actually black and tan), 18" rs rims and all the other fixins..he asking 9000 obo.

    Not true Stone. Labor charges can vary widely with your location. I'm pretty sure labor is cheaper where you live than where I live. BTW, what price do you pay per hour for labor in PA?

    If I would have taken my timing belt to this other shop, it was $75 an hour labor there which would have put the install at $800. Since I already bought the kit I just took it to another shop that was $100 - $115 an hour irrc.

    The kit was the same (coolant, waterpump, etc).

    Re: purchasing c5 a6 2.7t 6spd

    I think 9k is a little on the high end. I am skeptical of his care for the car if he put off the timing belt for so long. Anyone who knows about this car would've had it done as a precaution. Personally, I paid $1,335 for the timing belt job.
    I have been an '02 2.7t owner for over 3 years and I second all of the issues above. One thing that was not mentioned is the cooling system. There is a known defect with this system and the Audi dealership will try and talk you into their redesigned system if you ever bring it in to them.

    If you need a new one at 200K it will be because this one held up.

    If suspension caused wear that you described and it is overdue for TB, I'd say you may be, shall we say, a little optimistic in projecting that he "took care of the car". "Other fixins"? We generally refer to specific options -- sport package, winter package, or any engine, suspension, exterior mods over stock. My guess is you're in for a round of items if TB (and water pump)is not done, and tire wear is as bad as you said (cont'l arms? tie rod? cv? and tires, of course; brakes?). You need to ask what maintenance WAS done.

    You're in a very distinctly small minority if you think BMW offers "poor build quality." Not so. But having said that, C5 2.7t 6MT is a lot of car and a great combo sport-tour sedan platform.

    Re: purchasing c5 a6 2.7t 6spd

    I work for BMW. I can get a used beemer for cheap price.. however I purchased a 2004 4.2 A6 that will be deliver this Monday.

    Comparing the 5 series to the A6, the 5 wins in the handling department, specially if you go for a 540 and up. The interior is garbage as you said. They have very little poor quality paint jobs.. these cars have more issues than the A6. But the BMW has more pedigree that the Audi badge.

    good luck on your purchase.

    I sold my 2000 A6 2.7T 6 speed last year with 167,000 miles. Not a day goes by that I don't miss it. I had many problems with mine over the years, but I fixed almost everything myself with the help of a VAG and Bentley manual. For the most part I enjoyed the challenge. Just the usual stuff mentioned above. Go for it! $9000 sounds about right, maybe $500 too high. Good luck.

    thanks, I am actually torn. There is the 330ci that i test drove with 33900 on the clock, sport, premium, cold weather package but a burnt clutch due to sellers wife not knowing how to drive a stick. He was asking 15900 i offered him 10500 and he just emailed me asking I can move from that as he is desperate to sell.

    the audi a6 which is fully loaded (no sports package) is unique in its own right but a completely different car. he is asking 9000, i offered him 7800 on friday.

    It is the interior of the bmw and the paint that gets me. I have owned 3 audis and countless vws and was surprised to see these issues in bmw. Bmws seem to hold value better than audis....which is weird cause I have always felt that audis are bang for the buck...

    It is the interior of the bmw and the paint that gets me. I have owned 3 audis and countless vws and was surprised to see these issues in bmw. Bmws seem to hold value better than audis....which is weird cause I have always felt that audis are bang for the buck...

    Well, is it a E90 3 series? 10 500 is an interesting price. Honestly.. if you can get used to their interior, and poor paint quality it is a great car to get. Handles well, and BMW engines are to my opinion very fine engines.

    Sounds like you know how to deal your prices well.. so take whatever best deal you can get. Can't go wrong with either cars.. both have their pros and cons. The A6 was more comfortable than the 5 series, but the 5 series felt as agile as my previous B6 A4.

    For me it was about winter driving. BMW are very bad cars for winter. During snow storms we usually take 30-45mins to bring the cars from the lot to the garage since some of them still have summer tires, and the entrance to the garage is on a little slope so we have to push them once in a while. The more power you'll have, the more difficult is to control. The new X drive is actually a big improvement, but doesn't have the same grip as Quattro.

    It is an e46,...2001 to be exact and the audi is 2002. Both will need bucks spent on em as soon as I get em but I will be abale to enjoy my investment. I originally thought about e46 coupe b/c I wanted something different than my last 2 b6 a4s.

    I have been an '02 2.7t owner for over 3 years and I second all of the issues above. One thing that was not mentioned is the cooling system. There is a known defect with this system and the Audi dealership will try and talk you into their redesigned system if you ever bring it in to them.
    Could you be more specific. The seller of this particular a6 had records from the local audi dealership. Some of it was covered through third party warranty and other stuff wasnt. He did not hesitate to drop 1200 here and 900 there from what I saw, however no timing belt or water pump. He did have some work done due to over heating but I dont remember what exactly was done.

    I have a 2000 a6 2.7t w/ 64k on it, bone stock, I'd be interested in selling for the right offer. TB and aux. water pump taken care of 3k or so ago; I'd have to check my records. Only mechanical fault is the CV's on the front are torn....I'm in Denver, CO. I'm in the opposite position of you. I had an e30M3 in Portland, OR and sold it due to the amt. of snow in Denver, needless to say I miss it desperately.

    I appreciate the offer(if it was directed to me) but I am looking for something with more options. My b6 A4 was bone stock and I def want something different. good luck on your sale. I think this purchase will come down to a coin toss or a I get them both!

    The TB kit costs ~$175 online @ German Auto Parts
    Assuming it is a 5 hr job & 65/hr; it is $325....


    Am I missing something???


    About my car:
    It has 114k on it...I was told by the previous owner[2nd] that he was told that the TB was replaced when he bought it @ 103k, but when I inquired with the dealer [where the 1st owner has done all the maintenance] he says he does not have it on record...I think I need to replace it ASAP

    I am looking for someone who can efficiently do this job @ Louisville, KY or Toledo, OH

    Yes you are missing something......the folowing items are replaced at the same time since the car is basically torn down....

    1. Waterpump
    2. T-Belt Tensioner
    3. Thermostat
    4. Cam Seals
    5. Crank Seal
    6. T-Belt Tensioner
    7. Serpentine Tensioner
    8. Serpentine Belt
    9. G12 Coolant

    Also the 'kit' prices vary greatly. Stay away from chinese parts!!!!!!

    So yeah....you COULD do it for $300-$400, but you would be tearing it back apart to replace one or several of the above listed items.

    NOT a wise move. Make the most of the labor you are paying for!
