    The 05 plate a3 sport tdi (sportback 5 door) 104k full audi history

    The 05 plate vw golf gt tdi (5 door) 88k full vw history

    The 05 plate a3 sport tdi (3 door) 113k full audi history

    The 05 plate a4 tdi se (4 door) 105k full audi history

    Which is going to hold the price better and is better overall ?
    Is the 1.9 tdi engine better than the 2.0 tdi engine?

    I'd goe for the golf. The audis are that much closer to needing a big service with cam belt.
    2.0 engine is far superior, better power delivery and quieter than the 1.9. At that age both will be PD so not as refined as the later common rails.

    Golf - but the interior is not too solid on them.

    Can you not find a lower mileage A3 with FSH ?

    I think given the miles already covered the residual is of little importance. Go for the one you like best or see if you can find a lower mileage car.

    yeah I also agree with stu, given mileage of any of them it makes no difference, buy the one you like the most, all should of had cambelts done already anyway, my a3 2.0 tdi sport was bloody well specced aswell for a sport, of course now its an sline plus, lol
