    High oil consumption

    Hey guys, I’ve owned my Audi TT 2013 1.8TFSI since last April 2018. By October the oil light had come on and needed topping up by 1.25litres. On January 11th VW had it for some warranty work and told me the oil was again low and further topped it up by another litre. 600 miles later and...

    Yeah that's what I thought, I'm glad I went and drove this one, it's made me 100% want one it was awesome but too expensive.

    Going to look at a TDI 130 Sport

    Cheers mate, In future I will definitely look into that! Didn't end up buying the car in the end anyway, went to view it today and it seemed very nice, but was pretty dirty, hadn't been cleaned in a while, the leather had a significant tear in the drivers bolster and there was a dint in wing...

    Going to look at a TDI 130 Sport

    Yeah it's the colour I've been searching for and I really like the RSTT wheels, but not sure if they're genuine ones or not. The only way to tell is to take them off isn't it? Still not the end of the world if they're not.

    oh is that they are :P cheers! the red calipers added 100bhp, you're thinking of yellow ones :P I thought the white dials came on the sport model? I could be wrong though but I've seen a few white sets. Yeah I will get it changed within days if I were to get it :)

    Going to look at a TDI 130 Sport

    Awesome, I thought the quattro was faster than the 2wd version? Yeah if it's not had one done I will be negotiating, he says it has an electric sunroof but I don't see one in the pictures. So I'm gonna use that as well. It's a great colour, the exact one I've been looking for!

    Going to look at a TDI 130 Sport

    Thanks for the reply. Yeah it's definitely an 8L shape, which is why I'm abit concerned about the price to be fair. It's a 2003 facelifted model. A bit of hotlink from the ad. Image 1 Image 2 Image 3 Hopefully those work ^^ If it has NEVER had a cambelt change, should I worry...

    Going to look at a TDI 130 Sport

    Yeah, also the fact of being lied to haha :P I'd have walked away even if it had only been clocked by 100 miles. yeah thanks, will do! I'm in Nottingham mate, where abouts are you?

    Going to look at a TDI 130 Sport

    I absolutely agree with you on that. I'll have a look at those tonight before I go and view it tomorrow! That's shocking, did the Polo owner know that the car had been clocked?

    Going to look at a TDI 130 Sport

    Yeah I do tend to get like this with mileage. I'll take on board what you say and check out some more slightly higher mileage examples. I'm new to buying cars myself, I've only owned two Golfs and both were £500 bangers :P

    Going to look at a TDI 130 Sport

    Thanks for all the help mate! I'll get a HPI check done, they usually show you mileage too don't they? Do you know any sites I can use for that or will any do really? I've never done one before haha, but I've seen a few around the £20 mark :(

    Going to look at a TDI 130 Sport

    Yeah well I'm trying to find one under 100k and not many tend to pop up around my area really.I'll try and knock the price down, I'm not interested if he doesn't want to budge on price, needs work doing and I want a sunroof which he says has and I'm sure it doesn't :P

    Going to look at a TDI 130 Sport

    Yeah that sounds expensive but i know PD engines are meant to be pretty good if they're looked after, I nearly bought a PD100 before my mk4 1.6. Sounds like I will be getting a fair amount of miles from one if I look after it and I am planning a remap at some point. I'll use the cambelt as a...

    Going to look at a TDI 130 Sport

    Thanks for the pointers, I'll be sure to check those two things out :) I'll do a few hard pulls and listen out for what you suggested. Are these expensive repairs if they do happen to be there?

    my dolphin grey s3

    This is my favourite colour choice! Looks great. Are those xenons or just facelifted lights?

    Going to look at a TDI 130 Sport

    It does have quattro badges, but the guy said on the phone that it's just the FWD model, the badges were just on when he bought it. Sound legit?
