if i were to upgrade i get quattro 2.0t
My 2006 A3 has 90,000 miles on it. I've had the dealership replace my cam follower, cam shaft, fuel pump, as well as timing belt, water pump and all that good stuff. I did most of this at around 70,000 miles. I also updated the PCV, DV, breather tube, new wheel bearings, and it's APR stage 1.
The other day, I found a similar 2006 A3, with only 37,000 miles on it, it's been maintained and the seller is asking 17k.
From what I've been seeing, I can probably get around 10k for my current A3, and then cover the rest for the low mileage one. Do you guys think this is even worth it? I still have Koni FSD's sitting in my garage, and the only thing I'd probably swap out of my old one is my Euro LED tails.
I'm also certain, that I'd probably have to service the low mileage A3 to double check for cam follower problems, along with PCV, DV and every other recall.
What do you guys think?

Sounds like you are trying to stay around $$ what your car is worth. Test drive a used 3.2 - you'll pay more for gas but you won't care.
Anyone who looks at the Audi A3 3.2 DSG and sees an overpriced economy car should not be allowed to play with Rottweiler puppies.

I dont see the point .
lets see... dump in another 7K IF you get your price...
I dont know about where you live, but id owe about a 1K in sales tax, FLUSH
APR tune FLUSH
cam follower etc issue is sorted out.. you dont have to worry there..
lets just say you are blowing 10K to set the wayback machine on your car 53K miles.
dont be a chicken..... drive the old thing into the ground.. Put the 10K into Apple (not Facebook) and cash it in when you are sick of driving an A3, and want to buy something different
Audi is the girl who was really cute in high school, but now puts on way too much makeup in order to try and hang out with the hot girls.
$17,000 for a stock 2006 with 37,000 miles is too high. Wholesale auction value for that car is only $13-14,000.
I'd keep what you have. These engines have a lot of life in them, especially with what yours has had done already. I assume they cleaned out the carbon buildup at 70,000 miles.

Thanks for the info guys.... In the end I agree with you all, I'd probably be better off driving mine for another year or so and then look for a Quattro version. I'm gonna replace the suspensionin the next 2 weeks and get her running like new again.
