Hi Rich, Welcome to the TTF..
Service history is very important. cambelt/water pump every 65k miles or 5 years which ever comes first, dash instruments (dashpod) read correctly, coolant temp reaches 90 within a couple of miles & stays there.
Get written confirmation of cambelt/water pump change or reduce price by £500 & get it replaced ASAP.
3.2 V6 no turbo or cambelt to worry about, so should be more reliable, DSG may be weak link, unless you can find a manual.& a nicer exhaust note.
Don't rush into it. A good TT is a wonderful car, a bad un can be a money pit.
Plenty of good uns out there, but probably more bad uns, so as I said don't rush into it.
Hoggy. :D

Thanks for the advise!

V6 shouldn't be a problem I had a mk5 R32 in the past, and yeah the engine note does get addictive! Ha ha

Yeah I've looked at a few already and there seems to be a fair few ruff ones for sale which surprises me

Hi Rich, Same as any "modern" car really, knocking suspension is another TT common prob.
TT 225 or QS or V6 every time.
Hoggy. :D
