    hey guys

    my gf is liking the A3's since i got mine and maybe fancies one after the summer months as her new car!

    unfortunately she couldnt afford an 8P (maybe though depending on her new job) so what would be the best spec'd 8L you can get?

    to be honest i dont know much about the 8L range

    thanks for the help and advice!

    the TDI's came in a few different versions

    theres a 100, 110, 115 & 130 IIRC, with the later engines (some 110's, 115 & 130) being PD (pump duse - a newer engine design)

    the 130 quattro would probably be the highest spec of all of them(1/2 leather, sport suspension & 4wd etc) and I think all came in either SE or sport setup

    Have I missed something here???

    TDiQ's are all 130 pd engines and usually came with:

    Half leather sports seats
    Climate control
    Quattro GMBH lowered suspension
    17" Alloys (though not all)
    White dials
    DIS

    And there were the usual extras like:

    Xenons
    Symphony II 6 disc in dash changer
    Recaro's
    Cruise control (its a DBW)
    Sun roof
    Bose
    Heated seats
    CD based RNS-D Sat Nav
    Armrest
    And other stuff I have missed..

    They ended in 2003 and may be fitted with a lot of stuff as a run out model.

    Worth a look if you find a good one... especially as they are quicker than an S3... ahem...

    The auto dipping rear view mirror may have slipped through as well...
