    These have a timing chain with no interval, spoiler isn't OEM and agree it looks silly along with the mirrors.

    Yes it looks a tad tacky with mirrors & boot spoiler, I'd be cautious who had that before tbh.

    I wouldn't buy that one... Seen much nicer with similar miles and better spec. There was a sprint blue 3.0 tdi with black Bentley style leather and B.E rims for sale at aitp for £14,500 enthusiast owned and shark stage 1 remapped , low mileage iirc.

    Funnily enough I've been looking at 3.0 Tdi's as well mate, this one is Southport looks fairly priced for the age and specification:

    My budget can only stretch to a high mileage example.. do they tend to take high mileage well?

    Not too bad with high mileage, but there are a few thing to look out for. Check for clutch judder, vibrations through the steering wheel, flaps in the inlet manifold, DPF and EGR issues.

    Whats the clutch judder from? Sign of a dying flywheel?

    Is there any signs and symptoms flats or egr valve going? And are they expensive to replace?

    Cheers

    Just from what I've read clutch judder is failing clutch on manuals (high torque engine wears them).

    Flaps in inlet manifold cause rough idle, as does EGR from memory (and dash light). DPFs do fail if not regen'd properly but not a major issue.

    So a remapped manuals clutch will struggle, IIRC it's a 228 mm twin plate ?

    What's the best gearbox for 3.0 tdi, manual, auto, s-tronic (paddles I think ) ?

    S-Tronic. Manuals carry such a heavy torque load (esp. If mapped), the
    ST unit will be more forgiving.

    For those especially with a manual, is there any organic updated clutches available yet ?
