    My 2p
    Engine:
    make sure it is startng from cold when you start it- look for blue smoke from start up.
    any unusual whines or whistles (or worse case scratching scraping) immediately at start up or idle - shagged turbos/seals/boost leak


    suspension
    knocks clunks and general vagueness on steering and or bumps - suspension arms ball joints and bushes
    droning from any wheel or rear - wheel bearings/rear diff
    rear clunking when power put down- rear diff mount bush
    clunking when dumping clutch - engine mounts/trans mounts (poss Dual mass flywheel but that will be nosiy throughout if properly shagged)


    usual stuff you would look for. timing belt change recently.
    brake condition, tyre condition, wheel condition, stone chips, any overspray, panel gaps

    would have a butchers on RS246 in the 5 S4 forum as I think they have a detailed buyers guide
