Hi all, I'm looking at buying an A3, budget is around £8-9k. I know that I want an A3 with: Diesel Engine (pref 2.0TDI) 3 Door Sport Model But I also want a model preferably after Sept 05, with the new style steering wheel. I'm also craving some sort of leather in the seats. Looking on Autotrader, in my budget I can get: 2004 2.0TDI, 40k miles, leather seats - £8.5k or 2006 2.0TDI, cloth trim, new style steering wheel, 75k miles - £8.5k After all of that my question winds down to this: What would you prefer, the older more up to date model with higher milage, or the older, more spec'd model with lower milage. I've never had a diesel before, but I've heard that they are a lot more reliable than petrol engines and can easily be seen past 100k. I've ever heard that they're ran in until 60k miles? Thanks for any input, Jonny.
