    Help needed buying an A3

    HI,

    Not sure if this is the right section for this thread.

    I'm looking at buying an A3 1.8 sport / 1.8 T sport and wondered if anyone knew of anything I should be looking out for when I go and have a look at the cars.

    They're second hand ones that I'm looking at from around 1999 and 2000.

    Anyone know if having a mileage of over 100K will pose a problem?

    Thanks

    ive got a 1.8 turbo on a 1999 plate. id say check its not been sprayed. open the rear windows and see if theres any tell tail lacquer spray or over spray. also check the clocks work ok, the digital display works. the heater LCD display working ok. other than that just the normal checks realy. i.e oil is clean and not creamy, it doesnt pull to one side when accelerating and braking. uneven tyre wear.
