    No one is a noob on here !
    Dont think your being a pain in asking questions, its what the site is intended for !
    However, you may be better off making a post in the A3 sections of the site, as you'll probably get quicker and more replies.

    Oh, almost forgot, WELCOME !

    I'd say you'll be looking at an older 8L for 10k so might be best asking there, I'd guess that's a pretty late 1.9TDi can be had for that money... yep something like this...

    lol, thanks for the replies guys, you reckon its *impossible* to get a new shape for circa 10k? (pref 2.0 TDI 140 SE) even a private sale? (apologies if i`m being totally outrageous here)

    valuations from a well known site seem to suggest maybe(?)

    Audi A3 (03-) Hatchback 2.0 TDI 140 SE 3dr
    Hatchback 3dr
    2003-53 Mileage 50,000

    Dealer 10,845
    Private 9,895
    Part Ex 9,545
    Cost New 19,800

    1968 138 24/19000 11 Diesel 50.4mpg

    yeah thats where the valuations came from, not exactly clear about the different models of the diesels, I think i am correct in saying some variants have substantially better mpg?

    thanks a lot for the replies guys

    if the A3 is too expensive i may have to go for Golf TDI

    now i need to sell my <cough>Yaris </cough>.........

    Mine is a 53-plate 2.0TDI SE and will have done about 50k miles in December when it is replaced.

    It might be worth checking out the auctions as quite a few 03/53-platers that were company cars like mine will be getting dumped on the auctions by the lease companies around now.

    That's what i did, just wish i'd waited for more second hand sportback TDI's to hit the market. Go for the A3.
