Buying an A3 privately. What to check.
Having never bought a car privately i thought i'd ask for some assistance. What to check for. Its an AUDI A3 2005 SPORT 2.0 TDI 140 3 DOOR. Mileage 50k. Next service 4,900 miles. Asking price 9k.
1. What service history should it have.
2. I understand the cam belt is an 80k change, is that correct.
3. HPI only checks write off, stolen or outstanding loans. Is there a way to check if its been accident damaged. Is there a way of checking insurance claims on it.
4. Would Audi do a check for me. Anyone ever done this.
I'm a cautious buyer who likes to check everything out first.
I have the reg, what can i check with that?
Okay, the service history is
Audi dealer @ 17215 miles - 12/04/06
