    Hey guys

    I've been looking on this site for a while now and i think that i have now found a car that i want... A 2004 A4 1.9TDI Sport in Dolphin Gray with a black leather interior. Ok to get to the point, i live over the water in Ireland and this car is in Wolverhamption Audi, do i need to get a HPI check and/or an RAC inspection? It is an approved Audi so are these things already done? or needed at all? :think: Any help would be appreciated
    the site rocks by the way :arco:


    Thanks

    If its a main dealer, then its already done.

    (and if it isn't, you have somewhere to go and kick some arse...)

    As far as warranty goes, the Audi approved scheme is quite strict and is like buying the car new but only comes with a one year warranty unless there is warranty left from new.
    Already had a couple of silly things done on my 53 cabriolet by the Audi dealer under the warranty with NO problems at all.

    Thats ultimately why you pay a little more from an Audi dealer rather than a used car dealer.

    no they said my car would be hard for them to sell due to the mods, and where offering a very low part ex price as they'ed sent it to auction, but the sales guy did offer 0% finance..... i did explain the only non standard parts where the wheels and shocks which only add £30 to my insurance,

    decided i'll wait till next year and go for a a6, had one as a loan car during the service, very impressed....
