    Advice needed - 1.9tdi S-Line Black Edition

    I've been looking for a face lift A3, preferably S-Line, tdi priced around the 12 - 13k mark for a while now, without intergalactic miles, obviously they are few and far between at that money so I had more or less resigned myself to getting a sport model.
    But recently I found this - 2008 AUDI A3 1.9 TDI SPORT 5DR BLACK EDITION S LINE LED XENONS
    Seems very well priced considering the miles/spec?

    Couple of questions, I thought all the facelift 1.9 tdi cars were running the newer tdi-e engines, but this appears to have the older (higher emissions) engine??
    Anybody have any experience dealing with the company selling the car, good/bad?
    Is it maybe too cheap for a BE, could be some history attached to this particular car? Although it says HPI clear.

    Any info much appreciated guys, many thanks.

    Alex

    Hi Alex,


    The car above wouldnt be a Black Edition as they only came out in 2009 and the engines were 1.8T, 2.0T & 2.0TDI (140 & 170).
    The new 1.6tdi i think was fazed in late 2009 early 2010. I'd ask for the reg number and do a quick search to see what model it brings up. Most likely just an s-line or sport model. If im honest i'd hold out and get a bigger engine.

    Hmmm, thanks guys, I thought something was amiss alright.
    The flat bottom steering wheel had me thinking it might be a genuine BE, as it is quite an expensive retro fit.
    Pity, nice looking car, will keep searching for the time being.

    This was another option, any opinions on if it looks like good value etc. - 2008 AUDI A3 1.9 TDI S Line
    Again a facelift but not a tdi-e...?

    It has the white DIS also.
    No such thing as a bargain(or a 1.9 BE), especially from a garage!
    Brakes are far too small to be a genuine BE.
    Looks like someone has fixed up a 1.9 SB with BE bits from another damaged one.
    To the untrained eye, looks the part tho.
    Now:
