I'm looking at buying an A3, budget is around £8-9k.
I know that I want an A3 with:
Diesel Engine (pref 2.0TDI)
But I also want a model preferably after Sept 05, with the new style steering wheel. I'm also craving some sort of leather in the seats.
Looking on Autotrader, in my budget I can get:
2004 2.0TDI, 40k miles, leather seats - £8.5k
2006 2.0TDI, cloth trim, new style steering wheel, 75k miles - £8.5k
After all of that my question winds down to this:
What would you prefer, the older more up to date model with higher milage, or the older, more spec'd model with lower milage.
I've never had a diesel before, but I've heard that they are a lot more reliable than petrol engines and can easily be seen past 100k. I've ever heard that they're ran in until 60k miles?
Thanks for any input,
