    Firstly hello form N.Wales.
    Just joined the forum for some advice.(and future interest in audi a3) i work for toyota and have always have had cars on the works scheme from which to be honest are all boring. so with the prices rocketing ive decided to get myself an A3.
    The question now is (as i look through the forum i think i should find the info) which one do i look for.

    My budget is £8000 - £10000. ive looked on every site going and i reckon i could get an a3 on a 07-09 plate for this amount but im not sure what to go for i want a sportback but not sure what engine to choose. ive heard some horror stories about the 2.0 with oil pump problems so if any one could advise me on what to look for would be much very helpfull.
    idealy im looking at a 140bhp or even a 170bhp. or should i just go for a 1.9.
    many thanks joe.

    If go for a 2.0tdi either 140 or 170, and I thought the oil pump issues were on the A4?

    same boat as me, im looking for an audi with the same budget
    thinking about saving for an S3 though

    2.0 TDI 170 S Line / quattro fits in the price range, just hard to find a decent one.
