    Advice on Audi A3 purchase

    Hello everyone, I am new to this forum and I really hope to get some answers regarding my future purchase.

    Audi A3 is a car I am looking for and I was double minded whether to buy the 1.6 or 2.0 (diesel) model. I haven't bought it yet but I'm thinking of buying the 2.0 because fuel efficiency wise there doesn't seem to be much difference(at least in the technical specs) and it's more powerful.

    I am looking for a 5 door and noticed that there are version with the sunroof but didn't find many of them, I found some but very expensive(around 18k or more)

    The model I'm looking is a start stop one because this is the one that seems to be the most economical (51.4 mpg urban).

    The most expensive versions have things such as sunroof,the sexy steering, leather seats,all features that I love but what I want to know is what would be better for me in terms of saving money.

    A standard version (usually black colour) costs around 13k-14k
    A better version (sunroof,leather, steering,white colour,bumpers) costs around 18k-20k

    The prices above are for car with less than 40000miles ,mostly 2010 models 2.0 diesel,5 doors,

    are these prices ok or should I be looking for another range?

    my main question is, would it be better/economical for me to buy a car with most of these features or buy a standard one and add these features such as leather seats,steering,bumpers,tyres and paint it to white?

    Thank you in advance
