I've put over 40k on it in 2 years, only thing I've had to replace was the battery and two front wheel bearings. Obviously I've done the normal tires/brakes/etc, and other preventative maintenance like I do with the M3, but it's been an absolutely perfect DD. Told myself that I'd flip it before it was time for the timing belt, but I think I've gotten too attached and will be tackling that job sometime soon.

Front pads were $26, rears were $32. Not having to use high performance parts sure does save money. But yeah, parts aren't too bad at all... and working on it isn't bad either if you know what you're doing. It's the 3.0 V6 so it's one of the more reliable Audi motors; I'm sure if it were a 1.8T I'd have a very different answer for you
