Going to be my first ever Audi

Looks great and appears to be the face, lift as well going by the exhausts.

It has the right spec i.e. tech pack advanced, folding mirrors, e/seats etc so you're fine there.
Mileage is very good for the age, so the only thing I'd want is sunroof / heads-up display but these are rare and by no means a deal-breaker.
Check full history and if there's a service pack attached.

On a test drive, make sure it pulls cleanly through the gears without any noises or clunks, gear shift should be smooth. Use the padals and check the same. Check tyres and test brakes to avoid any immediate expense. Usual checks.

thanks for the reply. Unfortunately it doesn’t come with folding mirrors or the electric seats, thanks to **** poor ads.
I did a VIN lookup and has the following - see images attached

Hate that!

If I was spending that money, I'd want full electrics. Folding mirrors can be retrofitted at some inconvenience.
Also, it doesn't have the flat bottomed steering wheel or Audi Smartphone interface (not sure if that's part of a pack).
If you can live without then a great looking car. No other contenders around?

Folding mirrors can be retrofitted - quoted £750 supply and fit.

Audi smartphone interface is available, just needs activating - quoted £150 for this.

Flat bottom steering (£750) I could live without, but never know, may change my mind later.

Dealer already knocked off £975, will haggle for more as I intend on servicing the gearbox soon.

Not many BiTdi's about...

That’s very good price. Was this including fitting?

No you fit the wheel yourself; takes 5 minutes to do it :) Best thing is you know it will fit! No messing around trying to find a different shape airbag etc

i paid £100 deposit on top of the price. They send you a wheel. Remove your old wheel, fit new wheel and send your old wheel back to them. They then refund you the £100 deposit

I’d say be careful as some of the spec on the advert is not what the car comes with. I’m sure it says comes with folding mirrors and tech pack advance. But you can see it doesn’t have the fog light sensors.
