    You def come to the right place.

    I did the same, it's amazing what you can learn about a car before you even own one!

    Makes good sense too.

    Peeps here are friendly too so don't be afraid to ask questions you struggle to find answers to.

    What spec/engine A3 you looking for?

    The S3 brigade members have only one recommendation: Get an S3 :)

    Welcome to the site. It seems the Diesel option is quite popular in Europe. not much here down under but its starting to. The 2.0T is nice.

    Watch out for bad steering rack (creaking at low speeds), rear diff whine, worn cam follower which migh have damaged the High Pressure Fuel Pump and Cam Shaft. Hope I didn't scare you hehe but wanted you to be aware of some of the costly to repair issues. Alot usually come up while car still under warranty so have a look at what was done already in a 2006/7 car.

    Good luck.
