I was looking at buying one before but there's little none about them locally which is fair enough when you consider few can afford to run an engine that size in Ireland. I found from what I read (on the sedan A6 2.7) was that the gearbox/transmission can be an issue. After 60/70k they need a good looking at.

Otherwise, the usual control arms maybe.

Regarding only the allroad there you can buy aftermarket airbags in the states with a lifetme waranty. Google should find you the supplier.

2.7 TT is used in the B5 S4 so look out for cam wear and worn turbos. If I was buying a V6 I'd be pulling the cam covers to inspect the cams.
