    AUDI A3 SPORTBACK S-LINE QUATTRO 2.0t Buying advice?

    Hi guys, I might go and have a look at the above but its over 4 hours from my house to get there and was just wondering if I should be looking for any known problems? How often should the cambelt and water pump be changed? Its only done 27000 miles and is a 2007 car but only has 2 stamps in service history (long life) so anything I should know?
    Thanks for any help, karl.

    Hi Karl. Sounds like a nice car..Seeing as the car is 7 years old I would deffo change the cambelt despite the low mileage .Audi state it should be done at 70000 miles or every five years whichever is soonest..Also the haldex oil should be changed every 20000 miles..ps I am in the process of buying a 2.0 t quattro black edition .Should be picking it up on Wednesday

    I'd check mot history and v5 27k 7yr old may have a few more miles than stated

    How much would we be looking at roughly for Audi to do the haldex and diff oil, timing belt & water pump?

    what manner said and change your engine /box oil while you're at it and change the plugs and cam follower for safe keeping; check the suspension (especially the fronts for leaks) make sure the odometer hasn't been tampered with as its sounds too good to be true do your HPA check etc..

    basically your best bet is to take it to an independent and have him scan the car for you with the current owner you'll know everything
