Im a newbie on here so go easy on me, ha ha.
Ok, to cut a long story short, i've been saving my hard earned cash for a long time and originally wanted to buy a 2005 A3 diesel.
The complication is that i wanted to run it on a veg oil mix.
I have had it on very good authority that that year or thereabouts have a PD fuel system which do NOT like any sort of veg oil mix, wheras the non-PD versions loved it. I was advised that the PD fuel system began to be phased in on Audis from 1999 onwards and that the models i need to get are the 90hp or 110hp 1.9 models as they are both non-PD.
So, i thought my chances of owning an A3 were gone as i don't particularly like the 1999-2000 look as i think they now look dated. However, earlier today i seen this thread from Mattandrew:
Conversion from pre-facelift double grill bumper to facelift S-line bumper
And it gave me an idea that perhaps i could buy a 99-00 model and upgrade the grill, bumber etc and maybe more? (If i was to buy a 99-00 for around £3500 then i wouldn't mind paying £700-£1000 extra to mod it)
Please can i have some advice as to whether this could work and if it would look newer or simply an old car trying to look newer, if you see what i mean.
Anyway, i look forward to any replies on this, thanks.
