    Default Anyone know Audi RS6's ?

    I have saw a C5 Audi RS6 for sale, it's a 2004 car, full Audi service history, 53000 miles, avant, mint......but is has had turbo failure! (twin turbo, 4.2 v8). I know these go for around £11-15K normally. This one is a fraction of that. How much are we looking at to get the turbos reconditioned/ fixed and fitted etc? Would the turbo failure have caused any more issues? I have no further info at the moment.

    That's a freaking complex engine, so if the damage is more than just the turbo(s), you'll need very deep pockets.

    I know its going to be expensive, but.....it's for sale for £5500! Seems like a bargain, if it's jist the turbos, it's alot of car for 5500. A family member is really tempted by it so just doing some research lol

    If it was me that was tempted, I'd firstly go and ask for written evidence that it was the turbo that was damaged - e.g. does the owner have a quote for the work from a garage, or is he just guessing? Secondy, find a garage that knows these engines and ask their opinion - they might say, for example, it's never just the turbo, it will have thrown its impellers into the inlet manifold and damaged the pistons, yada yada.
