    Buyers tips for 2008 Sportback

    Hi.
    I´m currently in the process of buying my first A3, and wonder if you guys have any tips for me before selecting one? At the moment I´m strongly considering a black 2008 Sportback 1.9 TDI S-Line. The car has 104 000 km on it (about 64600 miles). Its fully equipped with S-line interior and exterior.

    Thanks

    ^^ This comment may be confusing the DSG (auto 'box) and the Haldex (4WD) systems. Both need an oil change at 40k miles - but neither are available on the 1.9TDI.

    Personally, I'd look for a 2.0TDI over the 1.9.
