I've been looking at buying a 170tdi black edition sportback with DSG for a number of months now and have done some general googling and reading around but I'd like to post here to get detailed advice if possible please.
There is a 170tdi DSG black edition for sale locally but it has around 110K on the clock and the mileage is high. The car has a full audi history from the same dealership, and (possibly crucially) the flywheel has already been replaced (which I assume is the only major bit which could fail on me).
Do you know of any other problems or niggles I should look out for when looking around it or test driving it? and what sort of mileages is the DSG box capable of hacking? The car has been changed to 19" wheels with 225/35/19, this won't put excess strain on the DSG will it?
Is the turbo solid or is it failure-prone as some of the 140bhp ones are?
