    Hi guys,

    What are the main things to look out for on an 08 1.6 3dr?

    Looking for a friend who wants a cheap run around for the kids. I have an old S3 so have advised long term buy as avoiding turbo, Quattro and diesel as they are more likely to go wrong at 100k plus miles.

    Any other advice?

    Hey mate,

    Is your friend totally set on the 1.6? Id recommend checking out some 2.0tdi's (140) as they're great engines. Diesel will last you pretty much as long as you want so long as you look after it. From what i've read, people seem to have issues with the 170 (DPF etc.).
