Do they all need an engine rebuild before 100k?


Recommended Posts



All depends on how they have been maintained and how the engine has been treated. The way I look at it if buying a car with that mileage is completing an engine rebuild gives me a known baseline to move forward so it is a cost I would factor in.

Cheers for your help! So if you had the choice of a modified one with 96k or a standard with 65k. What would you suggest

Standard car at 65k but it does depend on a lot more factors. Service history for a start. Type of parts used for services. Number of owners. Recent work carried out. Even the brand of tyres.

They all seem to have a few owners which is disappointing. My rs4 2007 I was the 3rd and that had covered 100k by time I sold it. I miss that car. So what parts do I need to look for?

I would say it would be you bearings that will go first even if well maintained at about 100k they're getting towards the end of their usable life if the car has had spirited use , mainly because of the design of the flat engine the bearings are slimmer that a conventional strait engine , thus meaning they wear out quicker but the life can be prolonged with 3k or sorter services and proper warm up procedure, but I would be cautious buying a scoob with over 100k or at least be prepared to spend some cash on it.
