    Recently signed up to the forum so first and foremost hey all.

    I live in Peterborough, finished sixth form last year and looking to move on to my 3rd car, previously had a 1.3 KA (don't get me wrong it was pokey!) and currently have a 6n2 Polo 1.0 to commute to and from work, economical enough & great on insurance but couldn't pull the skin off a rice pudding...
    Been looking for more power as of recent as I'm finally getting cheaper insurance quotes on higher litre/bhp cars! :yahoo:

    So, my Dad and I are off to view a 2001 A3 TDI SE (110) this Saturday located in Bradford. Done 125K and has a fairly complete service history.

    Is there anything I should particularly look out for on this model with this sort of mileage? Any help would be much appreciated!

    Some great advice there, at least for me anyway - I'm going to look at the 130 this afternoon :)

    Not sure about the engines, but bodywise you want to check the rear arches and roof rails for signs of rust.
