Finally taking the plunge and going to buy an A3 after a year of deciding whether or not it makes sense to pay for a car each month when I have a 2004 MG that doesn't cost me anything with the exception of diesel and pride.
I could quite easily pay less for a better 'run-around' but I've had my heart set on an Audi for much longer, especially the 8P3 with the led DRL's. I don't cover many miles (between 5,000 and 7,500 per year I'd guess) so although a diesel will always be more economical I don't believe the distance I cover will make too much of a difference.
Anyway, I've had a brief search but I was wondering what I can look out for on the inspection and test drive? I am travelling a far distance and potentially spending a lot of money so I want to make sure I can give it a proper assessment because I don't want to end up buying a problematic car.
Spec: 2009 A3 S-Line 2.0 TFSi - 51,000 miles and 2 previous owners.
