Hi Lee welcome across mate,that budget does seem a bit low for a DSG diesel,i havnt had a look but i thought A3's were holding there value well so i would have thought to pick one up around that it would be very high mileage or poor spec

My mk5 gt tdi was running 191bhp - I seem to recall Beddie's a3 was higher than that on a bluefin map. Curley had one as well ( and a dsg ) which was running mid 180s. You'll expect the torque to be 280-295lbft post remap

Thanks guys, high mileage does not bother me as i am a mechanic so i can live with it.

There is one on ebay now for 7300 i think, so if my car goes soon i will have a look at it, is there common problems for me check as i see it they are fairly robust and the dsg box's seem as solid as bricks an mortar lol.

What kind of specs do they come in, as if i had to up the money a little i would ?

Welcome over Lee.

Have you driven a DSG car before? I'd recommend taking one for a test drive - some people love them, some people hate them! Also, there's a DSG recall on certain models so have a look into that.

Hi guys i was getting 21 mpg round town and 30 on the motorway, yes i have found a 3.2 dsg on 72k round the corner at 6k due to it being a cat d which does not bother me, am going to view it on sunday, its got heated leather etc, cruise, bose sound.

Hi dougal pal, i have sold the golf and he picks up next sat, he as paid £500 despoit and owes £4500, the reason i sold it was it was 10 years old and i was going to put an r32 engine in at 1200 quid, so i thought sod it i will sell mine and put that to a newer car. I will stay with ukmk4s as i do some lads cars on there and am setting up my own garage this year so i hope to get a bit more work from over there.
