    Hey man. Watch out for 2.0 Tdi engines of that age as they seem to mostly suffer with a pourus head at some point due to a dodgy batch. Google it for more information.

    I have a black 1.9tdi A3 8p which hasnt took a step wrong and i payed £3000 for it. Apparently its the 'Bombproof' one but im not sure about that, its still a PD at the end of the day.
    Either way i dont regret my decision. Make sure you get one thats had the cambelt and waterpump done though..

    Mines black though and it is a pain to keep clean! Haha

    Might even be up for sale soon. But ive only just joined this forum so dont want to look like i have just joined the community for that reason.

    An A3 is a good choice man. Hope you find what your after
