    According to the Audi website, an approved used Audi has to pass over 100 checks. When I bought mine in May this year I got a form with 70 checks that had allegedly been carried out on the vehicle. At the top of the form it says 'stage 1'. Is there another form for the other 30+ checks that should've been carried out? Should there be a stage 2 sheet?

    Thanks for any help on this.

    Excellent, thanks for the reply. That gives me even more ammo.

    Basically I don't have that 2nd sheet. When I picked up my car the air con wasn't working and the steering wheel was mis-aligned. I have since found out that the car has had (in the opinion of a VAG approved bodyshop estimator) a significant front end impact and has been repaired poorly. The n/s front wing has been bent in the accident, pulled straight and poorly painted. The panel doesn't line up correctly with the bonnet and n/s door and the front bumper is slightly twisted.

    This is an "approved used" audi from a main audi dealer. I won't mention the name yet until we see how they're going to handle it. I'm currently waiting for their bodyshop estimator to come out and see the vehicle for analysis.

    I suspected when I looked at the approved used check sheet I had that it had been filled out by Stevie Wonder but the fact that the second sheet is missing and that's where the problems would've shown up is very interesting.
