    Would recommend the facelift as there have been quite a few updated parts etc 2001+ for a little extra money.

    I have to agree with Mike. I have a 99 pre-facelift model and IMO the updated car is a much better look. Nothing wrong with mine, just prefere the newer look. Also my dad has a SEAT Leon diesel, the dash in his is the same as mine. Shop around and try to get a facelift model. Just my humble opinion.
    Good luck

    what happened to ur G60?

    or have u thought twice about buying a house?

    get the pounds out the pocket and get your money down on a facelift..


    chan just got an a4 1.8t facelift with tons of extras for 11k... everything checks out with it too and seems in good condition..

    so as everyones getting german cars think u should get a new one too...

    got for the face lift fella.. you will kick yourself if ya dont..

    go down to lancaster Audi in manchester and sspeak to Chris Doyle... saved me a ton of money.. hes a good guy... on the buyers side... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    I prefer the look of the facelift models, but personally, i prefer the climate control unit in the pre-facelift..just find it easier to use.

    Yeah, I prefer the older climate control panel. Although its just missing an "off button" like the newer style.
