'07 Audi A4 2.0T

So I need an opinion. My boss/coworker found a great deal on a BMW 335i, and wants to let go of his Audi to buy it. He asked if I was interested. It's a bone stock manual Quattro with low mileage (80k kilometers). It has the Premium package and Convenience package, but no S-Line business. Only issue he claims is a leaking front caliper piston boot, so nothing major.

I didn't do any major research yet, only that I'd think about it. He'd be willing to let it go to me for $11k. Car is worth 13-15k for private sale.

It looks like this, only with a dark blue color:


Thoughts?

What is insurance like on one of those and mpg rating? No use buying something you can't afford to repair and drive....

not my cup of tea... I'd go find a used BMW myself if I was going the German route, Audi's are nose heavy and feel weird to drive, I test drove a few of them before landing on the ATS.

To be honest, I'm not really looking for a new car. I just know it's a fantastic deal and because it's a turbo, it must have a great tuning potential. What I'm not crazy about is the European over engineering and high cost of ownership.

Look into it a bit more. Audi's seem to be horrible for burning oil at about a liter in 1000km or less

2017 F150 XLT-XTR - 5.0L, 4x4, 3.55's, E-locker, xtr chrome package, fx4 off-road package.
