    check the oil level, where it is usually parked for any signs of oil, check the temp guage hits 90 and sits there bang on , check for squeaky suspension, make sure the oil is not off milky colour, to excessive ticking on the left side of the engine ... that means tensioner is gone , if u have VCDS scan it with that, thats what i did when i got mine 3 weeks ago

    check if the service for the quattro haldex was done at 40k? Seems like a good price imo.

    i have a habit of changing the rear diff oil the haldex, box and engine oil with all the filters (fuel, cabin, air etc...), drive belt and its tensioner, and the timming belt and water pump when i buy it; you can never be too sure once you get it back after all that im sure you'll be happy; and then you can beans it without having the worry

    as for price i live in Australia so they are around 22,000$ here sadly

    They are a good car, you shouldn't be disappointed. As said just make sure the Haldex oil has been done and the cambelt. Another good check is the diverter valve as you could be loosing boost if it's not been change to Rev D unit.
