    09 A3 Quattro buyers advice

    Good Morning guys and girls,

    I'm new to the Audi world and due to view and test drive a stunning A3 Quattro s-line 170 later this week its a 09 plate with full main dealer service history, rs4 wheels, bose etc on 71000 miles.

    The car will be for my wife who currently drives a Full fat Clio sport 200, but as we now have a little one on the way the space in the clio is very limited and cant imagine her climbing out those recaro for much longer.

    I'm looking for some owners tips on what to look for, the milage is a little higher than I would normally go for but the reputation of Audi diesels seems to be pretty good my friend has a big diesel A6 on 120k and still runs like new.

    all feedback will be greatly appreciated

    Cheers Mark

    Welcome to the site Mark.

    Only real issues on 170's are dpf's tbh, but that can be removed if need be, check clutch as per most 8P manuals, just make sure engine wise it runs ok with no obvious noises, grinding etc.

    Any technology bits missing, don't worry these can be fitted afterwards of which I offer these services

    Good luck with the little one btw.
