    No one is a noob on here !
    Dont think your being a pain in asking questions, its what the site is intended for !
    However, you may be better off making a post in the A3 sections of the site, as you'll probably get quicker and more replies.

    Oh, almost forgot, WELCOME !

    I'd say you'll be looking at an older 8L for 10k so might be best asking there, I'd guess that's a pretty late 1.9TDi can be had for that money... yep something like this...

    lol, thanks for the replies guys, you reckon its *impossible* to get a new shape for circa 10k? (pref 2.0 TDI 140 SE) even a private sale? (apologies if i`m being totally outrageous here)

    valuations from a well known site seem to suggest maybe(?)

    Audi A3 (03-) Hatchback 2.0 TDI 140 SE 3dr
    Hatchback 3dr
    2003-53 Mileage 50,000

    Dealer £10,845
    Private £9,895
    Part Ex £9,545
    Cost New £19,800

    1968 138 24/19000 11 Diesel 50.4mpg

    There is a few on Auto trader, highish mileage from 9.5K for 2.00tdi 140 sports. Any good?

    yeah thats where the valuations came from, not exactly clear about the different models of the diesels, I think i am correct in saying some variants have substantially better mpg?

    thanks a lot for the replies guys

    if the A3 is too expensive i may have to go for Golf TDI

    now i need to sell my <cough>Yaris </cough>.........:blush:

    Mine is a 53-plate 2.0TDI SE and will have done about 50k miles in December when it is replaced.

    It might be worth checking out the auctions as quite a few 03/53-platers that were company cars like mine will be getting dumped on the auctions by the lease companies around now.

    That's what i did, just wish i'd waited for more second hand sportback TDI's to hit the market. Go for the A3.:eyebrows:
