    What checks can you do to see if your car has been clocked.

    I bought my A3 one year ago, but would like to try and verify the mileage as genuine. Its a 2005 2.0 tdi and has done 65k. What checks can i do to do this.

    With VCDS Im sure you can read the mileage from the ECU & see if it matches the cluster.
