    Hey guys,

    So I am looking at buying my first A3. I have found one that seems pretty spotless but I am weary that I might miss some important things that I need to look at that could cause me trouble in the future.

    The model I have is : [h=1]2008 Audi A3 2.0 FSI Ambition Sportback Manual[/h]
    Thanks for all your input in advance

    :)

    It doesn't have a turbo.

    Just joking, but there aren't any performance gains to be had really, so if you get bored with the 150hp there'll be no more to give unless you spend serious dough.

    No worries ;)
    So there aren't like any common problems that I'd need to look @ etc apart from performance?

    Thanks for the responses :D

    Have a quick look in the A3 - 8P section, you will have alot more info there, there is a sticky as well that has alot of FAQs as well.

    Also maybe worth posing the question in there, as you will get much more response in there...

    Hope that helps.

    Just do all the usual checks by the way - Mileage, HPI Check, Visual checks etc....
