    I have a 2.0tdi. The only thing I have had to do to mine is replace the rear springs.
    Check the ride height at both sides, have a feel around the bottom of the rear spring, you usually find the bit in there. Apart from the normal things. Log book, VIN number being the same and service history that's about it. Go for a test drive check the brakes then drive with full lock to check the CV joints.
    Enjoy ;-)

    Once in to 3rd gear hold the revs high and see if it goes in to limp mode.

    Bought it! Just out of warranty so hopefully anything that was wrong with it would of been done. 12 months mot being put on my seller tommorrow.

    Only small marks on alloys which I will repair. Does anyone know the correct silver spray to use for the double 7 arm alloy from the sline?

    It's from this place, got a better price than advertised
    Used Audi A3 Hatchback 2.0 Tdi S Line 5dr [start Stop] in Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire | Burford Car Sales

    If anyone can let me know why I shouldn't buy it before I pay the balance tomorrow than let me know. Love the dark grey as different to the black in the past

    Yeah good condition. As mentioned above the only issue was the alloy scuffs but I've done them in the past without any problems just need to figure out the best spray to match.
