    Hi guys I'm a new member and possibly a new a4 owner in need of some buying tips :)

    I'm going to view a 04 plate a4 1.8t 190 Quattro s line saloon this weekend, it's done 88k miles services 7 times buy audi specialists also had the cam belt changed, the car looks mint and the company selling the car seem like real genuine people :)

    i know the basic paper work checks and a few checks around the car, apart from this is there anything I need to look out for??

    This engine is known for oil pick up pipe problems but if its been serviced frequently then it may be OK but I would make a note to have this attended to sometime.

    Cheers chap anyway of looking for this checking for this before buying? I know this is probably a stupid question.

    also noticed some s lines have badges on the steering when and some don't, does this mean anything?

    Thers no way to be check unless the sump is removed but its unlikely unless it was owned by by an enthusiast who knew about the results of running these on longlife servicing.There are threads on here about this and the risk of the filter in the sump blocking.You need to check the S line spec carefully cos some add badges to confuse
