    what's the mileage? I paid 8k (needed road tax, only a 2mm left on front tyres) for my 2003 2.0 FSI sport but it had only turned 20k on the clock. So compared to me, yes.

    Seems to me like you've had a good buy there. Was it private sale as opposed to a trader?

    Yes thats a good deal... I bought a a3 1.6 lava grey for 8,750 43,000miles from audi one owner from new...My friend bought a 53 plate lava grey 2.0 tdi 108,000 miles i tink 2 or 3 owners from new had to for two weeks (this weekend) its already broken had to bump start it twice for him! He drove it 4time since he has had it!!!! I told him not to buy it but didnt listen to me lol...So count yourself lucky my friend has to drive i think over 100miles (he simple in the head) to get it fixed..And thats if it makes it lol

    Enjoy your car

    seems gr8 on fuel but saying that it could be bad but compared to my old 1.8t a3 quattro this feels like a 1.2 on fuel

    Thats a really good price.

    Being in the trade, yours is probably worth around 9k !

    And as for diesel....mine gives better miles than my 1.4 Golf ! lol. Just wish the engine was quieter! But it doesn't reallly bother me and my Carbonio will make it sound better anyways :D
