    hi i currently own a 6n2 polo gti and after seeing some of the 20vT conversions i thought i would rather buy a whole car (s3) for the same price. im off to look at a 52plate s3 tomorow currently has 90k on the clock full audi service history is there any common faults i should look out for. what should have been replaced by now? had a look at the buying guide but didnt really cover what i was looking for.

    i look forward to your replies, thanks in advance
