I am considering buying a 04/05 plate A3, looking to spend no more than £5k. I like to do a bit of research before I spend that kind of money so would appreciate any replies to my current thoughts...
- I do around 1,300 miles per month, so MPG is quite important to me. Which A3 would you recommend for me? I know I am probably better of with a diesel for starters, but is there much difference between the diesel versions?
- I am new to "re-mapping", but is it plausible that this could give my MPG (+performance) a boost? If so, what are the likely affects?
- Due to my budget, it looks like I am going to have to get an A3 that has covered approx 80k miles. Are there any common faults with the 04/05 reg one's? Also, what maintenance/repair work should this car have had done to pre-empt any future faults?
Any other information would be welcome
