Hi everyone, first post on the forum. I am just about to purchase a audi A3 1.8T. What i wanted to know is if there are any important changes to the car or engine between when they were first made and the 1999 model.

I ask this because looking at prices of the cars, they start at about £5000 for the older models, up to about £7000 for a late 1999 model. So any big changes that went on through the years to put me off buying an earlier model? cheers

Hi everyone,

My first post and as it is on similar line that that made by Ross I thought it best to add my comment here rather than start a new post.

Im looking at 1997/98 1.8T's and thought I d ask if it was worth waiting until I can afford a 99-00 model or if I should be just as happy with a 97-98 model with say 110k on the clock.

One specific question if I can - anyone know how reliable the autobox on the A3 is. I.e if an auto has seen 100k is it likely that I ll need to replace the gearbox in the near future?

Any reply will be appreicated.
