I went with 034 motorsports bar with end links. I doesn't affect ride quality, but the extra stiffness is appreciated even in my daily drive since I can take corners more quickly. The sway bar upgrade is well worth it. I didn't do the front because I read that it increases understeer, and I don't want that in the north georgia/north carolina/tennessee foothills and mountains.

Thanks for the response. As if my mind wasn't made up already, hearing this certainly helps. Now it's a matter of waiting for the right deal, unfortunately it seems these cars don't show up too often in the Boston area so i'm going to have to be patient. Also, out of curiosity, what are some of the issues you've had to deal with?

a7lex, I am in the same boat as you...

I am also looking into buying a used high-mileage A7 (~75-100k) and am interested in what these common issues are... I have read about the timing chain tensioner going bad on 2012-15 models, but it seems like by the time one of these reaches 100k that issue should have been taken care of already. Who has the highest mileage A7 here? Bring on the common issues!

there are plenty of them around Boston but many from those dubious dealers. I took a chance when I purchased mine from one of those dealers and knock on wood, I have had a relatively flawless ownership. I bought it with over 100k on it, it had a clean carfax and looked pristine. my only issue was the MMI screen going dark, I just fixed that as the dealer wanted $$$ to fix it. It was a matter of two fatigued and broken wires. Other than that, it is a fun car to have

You can always ask the seller if you can take it to an Audi place for a pre-purchase inspection. Or do what I did and had a service center look over the Carefax and tell me if it looks like it was properly cared for. Depending on state you can have a post purchase inspection done and if any of the items are state inspection items the selling dealership must either repair in house or pay for the work to be done. Again, what i had done. Saved me about $1000 for items covered that weren't caught by the selling dealership.
