    Newbie in Newcastle

    Just bought an X reg A3 1.8T Sport 5dr for a grand. Pretty pleased with it. Been a member on other forums from previous cars, so don't worry about me searching Past cars include: Honda CRX, mk2 Escorts and Austin Minis - legendary cars

    My Dad had a Golf GTi 1.8T in '98 and I loved it. Those Recaros were fantastic and now I've finally got one(ish). Kind of an emotional purchase really as he passed away a few years ago. I'm 29, live in South Shields near Newcastle and run my own SEO business so I only use the car for fun and a couple of motorway journeys to Scotland/London.

    The car is pretty good (pic attached), 115k, couple of rust spots on the rear door and lacquer flaking off 3 of the wheels, a squeak from the starter for a second on start-up, but pulls strongly, no smoke or odd noises. Sucks into the road like a limpet.

    Famous last words: I'm not looking at modding it just yet - I mean engine not Halfords boydwork stuff that's not my bag - I'll get it through the MOT in March and think about it then but in the meantime I'll be reading and learning here; most likely making a 'to-buy' list.

    Thanks Sandra. I've been searching and reading for the past day or so, getting to know what's common to go wrong, what's common to tweak and upgrade. Then....I decided to go out and have a play in the car LOL
