We've got a 1996 Audi A4 estate with the 110 bhp 1.9 TDi engine. It's done just under 110k miles. Looks like it now needs a recon. (auto) gearbox at £1100 plus VAT Obviously the options are (1) scrap/sell the car and buy something else, or (2) get it fixed. Generally the car is OK AFAIK apart from the gearbox problem, anybody know how long the 1.9 TDi engines typically last?
