Hi All, So I've been registered on here for a while but haven't really posted much. I'm considering venturing into 8P ownership and just after some advice. I've had various VW/ SEATs in the past and have the occasional use of an A1 1.2 TFSI. My current main car is a Leon 1.4 TSI 125 which I find a bit slow and boring, so want to move up to at least the 1.8 TFSI or better still the 2.0 TFSI. I don't like diesels so it will have to be a petrol.
I found these two on Autotrader and just wondered what the opinion on here would be:
Audi A3 1.8 TFSI S Line 3dr - Seems cheap and nice spec but it has the wrong alloys for its year?
Audi A3 2.0 TFSI S Line 3dr S Tronic - This would be my current preference, but can anyone confirm whether it has the EA113 or EA888 engine? I've heard the latter is suffering from timing chain issues so would rather avoid.
I'd be looking to retrofit RNS-E Nav and presume this isn't too dissimilar from fitting say an RNS 510 to a VW which I've done in the past.
Also a bit random but what year did they introduce the newer 'banana' style flip key with the chrome strip? Some seem to have it and some don't.
