Pre Purchase Advisories B5 S4 Avant Question

Recommended Posts



Sorry guys - I know this is a Corrado forum, and my question relates to an S4 but any help my much appreciated.




I've just had an inspection done on a 2000 B5 S4 and it came back fine, bar two advisories. Namely;


o/s/f upper arm rubber boots showing signs of wear, keep an eye on,




centre exhaust sleeve has started to corrode.


Can someone tell me what kind've cost/work etc required to remedy these, in light of using as a bargining chip before handing over the cash.


Many thanks

Audi suspension arms can be quite expensive if the bushes and BJs are intergral. If by exhaust sleeve they mean the peice that's about 6" long with two bolts/nuts for joining two pipes together, then they're about £35 each.


I reckon you've got around a £250 bargaining chip for parts and labour.

Thanks FishWick - that's the exact info I was looking for. Perfect.


I know Jim, car is in pretty good nick tbh. I was holding out for a straight, not messed with example.

So fingers crossed when I get over there (tomorrow morning!) it'll all be ok.
