    I have just purchased a 2003 audi a3 1.9 TDI sport. What checks should I do?

    Hi Everyone,

    I have just purchased a 2003 audi a3 1.9 TDI sport. It has high mileage of 145K, but has had one owner from new and full service history, plus I have been told that majority of the miles are motorway miles. I am still slightly worried about the high mileage and am just wondering what checks I should do to ensure that the engine will still keep running smoothly for many more miles.

    Thanks
