Hi! I'm new to the forum and new to audi's... so new in fact that i don't actually have one yet! I've been running a 98 polo into the ground and was hoping to get it to its mot in june before selling/scrapping, but i'm being forced to buy earlier than i wanted due to a catalogue of faults and it's getting pretty unsafe to drive! I've looked at a few a3s so far and found a nice 1.8 SE, but it hasn't had a cambelt change at 74k (certainly the first job and immediately!) and when i ran the engine it didn't idle properly until it started to warm up. It took about 2 or 3 mins and wavered between 900 and 1200 revs. Any ideas on what may cause this and how big a fault it could be? Also, does anyone have any general tips on what to look out for? Thanks in advance, Mark.
