Need help and advice - buying my first audi
Hi guys, have been on this forum for about 2 weeks now. I've been looking at at 1999 audi a3 1.6, 3 door. I don't have much sense when it comes to buying a car, so I could with some help really.
Ive found it on ebay, and heres the description;
Its done 79k
Part service history
Cambelt was changed not long ago as far as I know
Good overall bodywork, interior
2 previous owners
MOT - March, 2013
TAX - October 2012
Bidding starts at £850, and the "Buy it now" price is £1300.
Ive been driving a year now. My renault clio 1.2 has put me in a money pit from day one. I just don't want to get ripped off again. I want something solid and more reliable. I was thinking about having the RAC come and check it over for me, but thats over £150 for just a simple check over!!!
I asked if the water pump and oil has been changed recently, and he said oil has been topped up freqently, and no water is leaking from the water pump. Is there anything important I should ask? Is FSH really important?
Haha sorry guys, I really don't have a clue when it comes to cars to be honest. Thanks for your time and I hope someone can help me out, Jack.
