    Arrow Help me buy the right car

    I'm about to buy my first A3. Being new to Audi I'm not sure what model/ spec I need.

    I'm looking at a 2/3 year old S Line but want to know the following.
    does the following come as standard or are they factory options

    Sat Nav
    Bluetooth phone connection
    privacy glass
    parking sensors

    Thanks
    phil

    Welcome to the site

    Optional
    Yes if a 2011 onwards, before that optional
    Optional
    Optional

    The black edition has privacy glass as standard as well as the black pack, flat bottom steering wheel and rotors,
    I have one so I'm biased but those things swung it for me.
    The satnav RNSE can be retrofitted.
    The rear sensors can be retrofitted as well.
    Try and look the comfort pack as this has the rear parking sensors/ auto wipers and lights and cruise control all included.
    Hold out for one with everything if u can

    +1 for a Black Edition. Excellent value for money for all the extras you get,
    should tick all your boxes.

    Thanks Robbie

    I'm in no rush as you said I going to wait for the right car.

    I also want a 2L TDI with S Tronic.
    Am I right in thinking there is a 170 BHP version or is that the S3?

    One thing to think about is the 140 is no slouch and not as quick as the 170 but the road tax is only 30 quid a year compared to 110 I think for the 170.
    The mpg is better on the first but not by too much
    Personally I wish I'd got a 170 myself now lol

    Thanks batch.

    I will look at the black edition. Will also be adding some mods to it like a superchip and exhaust system.

    I want a wolf in sheep's clothes. The 170 BHP sounds like the one.

    Just get an s3, if you going to get a 170 black edition and mod it just get a car that is as good as that is modded like the s3 you won't be disappointed. I say as good it's a hell of a lot better!

    You should find a good one for that money, test drive them and you will see the difference and when it puts a smile on your face that's the one!

    Thanks Guys
    Don't want to go back on the age. I have a 56 plate car at the moment.

    Just looking for the right car at the right price and the right age.

    It's looking like a A3 S-Line Black Edition
