    I've recently just joined up after starting the hunt for an a3 2.0L TDi 170. I'm fairly new to the diesel scene, I've got the chance of an a3 2.0L tdi s line Quattro 170 apart from the dreaded DPF is there anything else I should keep my eyes peeled for my other concern is the 103,000 miles or does milage really matter these days. The timing belt and water pump were replaced @ 77,000 miles

    Thanks in advance :)

    Aye that's seems to be the best option......there's a place in Nairn that I've contacted about getting it done for when I've got myself a 170 and they seem keen enough.
