What to look out for


Registered User
Hi All
Im looking to buy a 03 A3 probably 2.0 TDI sport, Just wondering, is this a reliable engine and what should i look out for with it ie any work which should have been carried out under or warranty common problems to do with it etc.


1x S3 and 3x Fiestas.
If it's the 2L engine it's the 8P forum mate, the 8L only had yeh 1.9 in various forms, must be a very early 8P model!

get the 1.9 tdi as the 2.0 is prone to cylinder head and gasket failure.
do a search on this forum and other VAG forums.
