My B6 A4 just got totalled last week, and I have been looking around for a suitable replacement. The insurance company is cutting me a check for about $8500. I found a SICK looking 2007 A3 S-Line, that has been previously owned and garaged by an "enthusiast". It is selling for right at $8500. It's Ibis White, and has upgraded wheels (newer model 5 stars). It has the 3.2 engine with Quattro. Upgraded grill (no license plate holder at all and no strip across the front) and has the "fullview skylight" on the roof.
The only thing that concerns me is the mileage. It has 147k. Is this too high of a mileage, and what sort of mileage do these typically go before they go kaput? I'll be using it as a daily driver, and will be putting about 175 miles per week on it.
Also, what sort of "red flags" should I be on the lookout for these cars that would make it be a dealbreaker?
Thanks in advance for any and all input.
