    Hey everyone, basically im planning on getting an a3 preferably 04 onwards as it has the facelift and looks better.

    What i wanted to know from you all is, is there any particular models i should be staying clear from i've been told the model with flappy paddels can sometimes be dodgy as if they go wrong they are pain to fix.

    So just asking for advice on getting started really, which model will be best in the long run. preferably not any of the s lines as im only 20 so insurance would be through the roof im guessing.

    My budget is around 5-6k is this reasonable for the kind of thing im asking?

    Ive had a quick skim through the FAQ to no avail on these questions.

    I just want to know what to look out for, eg there might be damage from the car hitting a deer... also i hear that if the turbo makes a whistling noise stay clear of it.

    Many thanks Xander.p
