    aircon - make sure it works.
    climate display - make sure all segments work, and it doesn't lock up.
    power steering, make sure it doesn't gurgle when on full lock to full lock.
    front end - make sure it doesn't creak from the control arms.

    theyr're the B5 specific problems i had with mine.

    other than those, just check the usual.

    A sneaky one that isn't a problem witht he car, but more the driver, but may not be checked! I looked under the Matts of mine, for general wear on floor carpets, to notice under the driver seat a great big whopping hole!

    Basically looked like someone had worn stilletoes quite often and evenctually gone through the floor! Then hidden it with a Matt!!
