hi guys ive been offered another a3 but its a v plate 1.8 turbo quattro..
im in the trade but i dont have much to do with the sort of milage its done, so i need to know wat u guys think, its done 170000 miles. is that a bit much for a petrol engine? . whats the mpg like on them
if i want it i gotta pay £1200
I have an 02 S3 which has the same basic 1.8t plus a few modifications as its newer but it averages 28mpg and thats serious urban use so mixed I can get 32,the cambelt needs to be replaced every 60k or five years and also the water pump as the impeller is usually a plastic one.
Stickies at the top of the section have a myriad of info.
