    Looking at a 1.8 non turbo A3

    Looking to help a friend buy a replacement car. He is looking at a 1.8 non turbo A3. It's a facelift one. Just looking for some tips. Here is the link to the one he is looking at:

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2001-AUDI-A3-SE-SILVER-/181160063210?pt=Automobiles_UK&hash=item2a2dfb30ea

    Is 98k miles too much?

    cant view the link but 98k is nothing to frown about. these cars are old now so thats fairly low mileage.

    Just want to make sure its been looked after

    Thanks. It's had a cam belt and water pump in the last year. But it also says "
    New clocks fitted last year bought from BBA reman." Does this mean the DIS was faulty?

    As said, 98k is nothing. Depending on their requirements, I'd recommend getting a turbo. Although if it's just a cheap runaround, I guess it doesn't matter

    Could be a number of things if it went to BBM reman tbh....but there work is guaranteed.

    Maybe worth asking what was done and what the receipt is for.

    Any particular reason why your friend isn't looking at a turbo version A3?

    He is 19 and insurance is an issue. I will ask him to see how much insurance is otherwise though. Thanks for the help.

    Yeah it may be worth running a few 1.8t registrations through for quotes....there are a few lads on here in there late teens that manage to insure them.
