Looking for my first Audi ...
I am on the look out for my first ever Audi- pretty excited. Ideally im after an A3 3.2 v6. I had contemplated the 2.0 TDI, but the appeal of a V6 is getting the better of me. Better performance and sounds really nice.
I have about £7500 to spend and would quite like to get something with a reasonable level of trim/toys. in order to get the bits i want, the cars have somehwere in the region of 50-70k on them. is there anything in particular i should be looking out for on 3.2s with such mileage? i have seen that the timing chain slapping about is a fairly common thing. Also the hesitation at 2000rpm (seems people have now found a fix). is there anything else i should be looking for? is 70k high miles for this engine?
Also DSG or no DSG.... a couple of colleagues have commented on reliability/cost to replace the DSG on the Audis. i quite like the idea of it, but they were semi-concerned with the amount of torque going through the dsg. Are they talking cr@p?
I might be looking at this one:
price seems fair... just the mileage had me wondering!
cheers in advance for any advice you can offer.
