Looking to buy A3

Hello,

Looking to buy another A3 S Line/Black Edition (Wanted xenon lights if S Line) 8P model ideally wanted a 2011/2012 plate.

I do not do many miles so i dont think the 2.0TDI is for me as i would imagine i would get DPF problems.

Which engine would you get? i do not want an S3 due to insurance etc.

Would like to do some small modifications if possible in the near future.

if you can find it then 2009 3.2 is the absolute unicorn especially with black package but any 3.2. bullet proof engine and great sound. I have had mine for over 11 years and its treated me very nice. I have never owned a car this long so the engine speaks to its reliability

1.4 tfsi would suit imho.

I'd check out the 1.8TFSI or even the 2.0 TFSI A3's.

Agreed. But I don't want your road tax bill! I prefer mine, same car, but lower.

Managed to get a good price on insurance so took the plunge for an S3. Collected yesterday, well happy with the car.
