Wow, that is an incredibly vague question. We know nothing about the car, seller relationship, costs, miles, engine, tires, brakes, service history etc. There is a million things to check before someone could give you actual advice if it is a good idea to get that car or not.

If you are worried, have the car inspected by a reputable shop (somewhere around 100 bucks should cover it) - this will give you at least a piece of mind.
Otherwise make sure you drive it at least 60 miles to give the engine enough time to throw any codes the seller might have cleared.

there are several members that had good experience with the 2.7t engine so if treated well it can still be a fun car with 167k miles. I would definitely take it for a spin and make sure it drives good and the turbo sounds/feels good. Also make sure the timing belt was replaced (every 80k is recommended).
The one thing you will most likely encounter are electrical "gremlins", at least on my c5 I had one thing after another (dome lights, head light switch, etc) but the car itself always ran great.

Hello Clayhasty! Why don't you check leasing? Look here https://dsrleasing.com/car-listings/...-lease-439-mo/. I have leased from them 2017 Audi A4 in an incredible deal!
