ive seen a few saying (its had the all important engine out oil seal done)

= S81 i know what you are saying about large men and seats , im not exactly thin so mmmmmmmm good point =

i dont really want 'POWER' as such as the C6 1000bhp etc
i really like the look of the C7 and im not into the C8 at all especially price wise

if i dont like it i suppose i can sell it again

I FOUND THIS 936 Miles !!!!!

The C6 oil seal leak engine out is a myth I reckon spread by Main Dealers, had mine done by my very competent mechanic without taking engine out. As Ian says the C6 is the ultimate RS6, just breaks so many rules but it's hard getting a good one these days.

probably fails on being Scottish though

I'm also not convinced an Audi dealer would have noticed that not only was the seal gone but the casing was also cracked

That'll be a nicer than average drive then . I still have fond memories of picking up Herman from Ian in Harrogate in 2008 and driving him back to Manchester. Enjoy.
