I am in the market looking out for cheap AWD car and found a 2001 Audi A4 Quattro wagon with 105K on it.
What can I expect in terms of maintenance costs considering
Are spares too expensive?
anything specific that dies with this kind of mileage
Typical Engine life
I plan to run the car for a couple of years for about 20k to 25K miles.
Appreciate your feedback.

You'd certainly want to have the car thoroughly checked out by an Audi specialist before buying it.
Engine life is good on Audis, but repairs and maintenance tend to be quite expensive on certain items. It's not a car you want to buy with "needs" or as a "fixer-upper".
If this is the V6, watch for oil leaks at the camshaft end caps----that's $$$
Also, on any A4, do you know when the last timing belt was done?
if this is a 1.8 Turbo, be sure to check the oil for sludge/gelling, and also ask the seller about oil consumption.
