    Hi my little bro is wanting me to go look at a 4 year old audi which has strangely low mileage so I am wondering if there is a way to check the mileage with my vcds ie on the ecu or something??? Thanks

    Call the servicing dealers to validate, check the MOT certificate and the servicing paper work etc.

    If it seems iffy then walk as there's loads of others out there.

    Don't forget people wind the clock back before servicing & MOT's and with the car being only 4 year old it's most likely only had 2 services & 1 mot so that not going to provide you with much evidence. As above there are plenty out their so just walk away if you suspect any thing.
