    Welcome to the site iain.

    questions, questions! Is it a Turbo? Auto\DSG? How long do you intend to keep it? Is the service history all Audi or part independent? ...so many questions you may as well just link the ad.

    its a manual turbo petrol not to sure on the audi / independent service history and i will probably keep it for 1-2 years depending on how life goes and wont be doing massive miles in it probably 6,000 a year

    Have you driven it, or any other 2.0 turbo petrol for that matter (does it pull like a train)? Quattro's sometimes have rear diff issues (whine) if they're not looked after properly.

    And it'll be a 2.0T FSI ...don't forget the T as there's a non-turbo 2.0 FSI as well.

    Check the haldex service if there's no receipts its not done, its easy to tick a box in a service book as mine had, only to drain it and it find it was like sirrup. if the haldex has been done they should have done the diff oil at the same time. Timing belt same again receipts and water pump at same time, show it its been looked after.

    Yeah the 2.0TFSi S-Tronic is very smooth revving and fab, Quattro helps planting the throttle on slippery roads..
