the 2.5 has plenty of grunt and is super economical.
the 3.0 is a powerful 3.0 engine and pulls like a train but maintenance in terms of cam chain/belt can be expensive.
My bet would be on the 2.5 as there is less to go wrong provided the oil changes were done in time and with the correct spec oil.
Either way take Nooby's advice and make sure you get a comprehensive warranty with it.
All vw/audi engines must use 507.00 spec oil except non-DPF R5/V10 engines that must use 505.01/506.01
