Managed to buy at last a low mileage A2 with leather trim and sunroof.just when we had decided to keep our silver tdi that we have had for 15 years.spent £600 on paintwork last week!some one had caught drivers side marking both wheel arch’s and doors.Looks great now so hopefully will find a new home.Will be sad to part with our reliable friend!Its done 124k which most are saying isn’t a high mileage.but can’t keep both of them!!

Made the mistake of folding seat and lifting up!go’s back down but seat back will not lift uP and back into upright position!Don’t want to damage seat so having lunch then will take another look.

Sometimes just a downward shove on the folded seat back will do the trick and let it unfold. If not, kneel on it towards the centre and pull up the handle in the base. You should hear/feel it lock into position, then it'll play ball.

Yes to both!photos of old and new!, I now believe the “new one”was on the market earlier this year!Why new owner wanted to sell it so soon I don’t know but hav’nt found anything wrong with it yet!Drove it back 189 miles,lacks the torque of the TDI but a bit quieter!not sure which I prefer but it will mainly be my wife who drives it and it will be lucky if she does more than 3k a year.The car has a massive service history and anything that wanted doing appears to have been done.Had a “internal invoice”for £1750 with it from dealer who sold it earlier this year!Why you would/should make out an internal invoice I am not sure!Anyway wife is happy with it but will be sorry to see the TDi go if and when we find a buyer.
seat sorted,!,
