    Mines also the special edition, pretty sure the difference is built in sun visor in parcel shelf, dark headlining and lights above the vanity mirrors. If your buying private and it's had a remap then your could ask the seller about the diverter valve and cam follower to see if these have been changed. Otherwise nothing really other that the usual checks when buying a used car.

    as Jay said really... check by who the timming belt has been done... if the rear haldex has been seviced regulary..fuel filter etc..

    also the 2.0TFSI quattros have issue with the front shocks ... when i got mine it was leaking on the drivers side but i change to Bilstien B14's so didnt bother me too much.. also check if its had its clutch changed has that is a big bill if u need to do it

    yea if you've got them then it's a special edition, also you can check your v5 to be sure, as mine says special edition on the v5.

    The special edition didn't come out to order until Nov2005 and the first deliveries were late Feb 06(55plate). I ordered one on the week they came out and pushed the delivery back a week to get it on an 06 plate.

    There were no special options to signify a special edition they could all be ordered before the SE came out. What the SE changed was the price, it knocked about £1800 off the price of the earlier car with all the same options ordered.

    well, ive gone and put a deposit on one

    56 plate Audi A3 2.0 TFSI S line Quattro - Special Edition
    Its in phantom black, was really after a misano red but the phantom black looks awesome.

    Has 99k miles which put me off a little at first, but it seems to be in excellent condition / FASH / 1 owner.
