I was going to buy a 2008 Audi A6 2.0 TDI Multitronic, but I have been told they give a lot of turbo and flywheel trouble. It has 143,000km on the clock. What's your opinion?
I had a 2004 E-Class Mercedes-Benz in Elegance spec, powered by a petrol engine. The Audi I think gives me the same comfort as the E-Class, but is diesel, which will be much cheaper to run. It is also in a low tax band, but I have heard bad reports from an owner regarding flywheels and the turbo. Mind you, the Mercedes was not without problems like the SRS, which cost me money.

I am buying a BMW 318d with run flat tyres and no room for a spare. The wheels are 18-inch alloy and the are low profile tyres. I'm nervous of getting a puncture while on the way to work and being stranded, then being charged a fortune to replace the tyre by a mobile tyre replacement company. I feel like replacing the run-flats with regular tyres and throwing a spare into the normal boot space. I do about 20,000 kilometres per year. What do you think?

I'm looking at buying a used automobile at the moment. I'm trying to be smart considering fuel prices etc, but still want to enjoy driving. I've beem looking at BMW X5s, Volkswagen Touaregs and Audi A8s. I'd like a automobile that is a good all rounder in terms of comfort, style and on the off chance it snows I wont be stuck!
Any advice welcome. (Feel free to advise me to get an M5... please!)
