    Just a search for your opinions really on how long you expect the A3 engine to hold out?

    Im just over 50k now and it still feels good. I know with my old Ford when you went over the 100k mark problems start occuring and by 150k a petrol engine was looking towards the end of its life, but thats on my old escort.

    Im new to the Audi scene and wondered how good there engines are? With proper services and care how long can you expect it to hold out?

    How long is a piece of string?

    Which A3 with which engine? I'd expect most modern cars to exceed 200k tbh.

    Keep her serviced and treat her well and she'll see 200k no problem I should think.

    I'm on 80k now and she drives like new.
