    Hi guys

    you may remember me putting a deposit down on a 08 a3 sline sp with 58k on it. long story short the dealer lied to me and didnt secure it. any way moving on heres an update.

    now found a new one and drove to Hull ( 120mile one way) to take a better look

    its on there website
    50k
    one owner ( company car seen the letter today )
    * listed with heated windscreen wrong
    I have got it down to £13250

    there are a coupe more on trader with more milage for more money this is the cheapest one ( that has drl's)

    bad points
    has a couple of scrathes one is to the metal.
    the leather on drivers side has a small scuff it has just taken the colour off ( not sure if this can be fixed??)
    the arm rest lock/ clip thing is broken
    rear plastic is scrathed


    i would like to put these thing right is this gonna cost me?

    is it worth is or is my heat ruling my head

    and how do i get the car kit to work?
    why dose it not rev over 2500k when stationary ? limp mode

    plus sides
    it has drls
    the wheels and tyres are like new
    it has audi mats
    car insurance are gonna refund me £50 yeah

    VehicleDetails

    its secured to me but i dont know if i should go for it they wont budge from £13250
    pic of scrathes look like it was somthing to long for boot

    Facelift came in on the 58 plates iirc.

    It does look good for the price and drl's will save you a fortune rather than retrofitting I believe.

    I can't help on the costs of repair sorry...

    Looks like a nice car. Maybe added up the realistic cost of putting all the bad points up right and put it to the sellers, see if that could budge the price if you aren't happy with it. If its a audi dealer your buying from get them to change the armrest lid - retail at £70.

    Rev'ing to 2500 rpm at stationary is a safety feature so I believe, nothing to worry about.

    Let me start by saying that a lovely looking car! But I'm with Lingy on this one, I've got an ex company car and when I checked the mileage using VOSA it was clocking 30,000 miles a year! So I mean there's no harm in looking into it further.

    phone Audi to check the service history because your cars too new to have any MOT data?

    IIRC you can have a look in vcds / vag com .I would get the service booklet and contact the dealer who serviced the car .If maraculously theres no service book walk away

    nice car lingy! i'm sure breakers yard will have those parts for cheap?

    and for the car, it's looks very neat...if vosa and audi service check gives positive results then go for it.

    also, 58 = 09 (early)

    i have mentioned this in another post but its worrying me because i dont know anything about it. i went to rev the car when it was stationary after being on a miniute or so and the turbo made a funny wistle and would not rev over 2500rpm when i asked why the car sales person said possibly a limp mode. is this normal? the cars getting preped as we speak so a quick reply would be great. :3sadwalk:

    Some safety feature not rev'ing over 2500rpm in stationary so I believe. Not sure on the whistling noise. Surely the car had an inspection by the garage before its gone on sale?

    Armrest is roughly £70-80 my clip is broken too and you have to buy the whole top cover which is in leather, unless your isn't that's what I was told from Audi just to give you an idea. My boot is the same too with scratches in the plastic annoys me like hell let us know if you do sort that one out, is a very nice car by the way.
