I think the problem is that all of these are 1.4tsi's built before 2012, so are likely to have an older version of this engine which experiences misfires and pistons cracking. So I would make sure you're aware of this issue, what the risks are, and whether it's worth the price you're paying. Personally I wouldn't buy a pre-2012 1.4tsi after my experiences.

Thank you, I think about it)
But if I take 2012 year manufacturing it will cost more then 10k euro
Maybe in this price category have better variants?

I would personally skip the green one and for sure with the damage. I wouldn't get myself to put me over that, also the green might suit a Porsche but not really a 160hp scirocco but that's my opinion. I know people will disagree.

The poland one (blue) looks def the best to me. I bought myself a Sirocco 2.0TSI DSG a few months ago for €11k with 65k km's the owner wanted €13k at first, and I beleive that's a fair ok price imo. I'm from Belgium and cars are generally more expensive then those in the UK for some reason, they are actually rare here only seen around 5-7 since I got it 6 months ago.

Thank you for the answer, it really helped me, I agree with you.
I think last variant(blue) the best, so I will connect with the owner for more information.

Hello guys)

Unfortunately, I cant buy a car more than the 2010-2011 year manufacturing, because it is expensive for me.

What do you think about this options:

Looks ok, but beware of the piston problem, it's something you should try to avoid/take very seriously
