Typically speaking you want to avoid the "first" year for any new model.
So the 96 A6 would be "out". Also stay away from the 12V 2.8 V6 Engine
in either car; without (or even sometimes with) proper servicing, Stuff
just breaks. (EGR System gets plugged, requiring a replacement
intake..or serious work). 

Either car with the 1.8T is a great engine (thou not as peppy as your
Non Turbo 5 cylinder). 

If the cars are the in the same condition and you can prove that the TB
service has been done, I'd get the newer one as the rubber bits on the
car are just that much newer. 

HTH. & Good Luck
