    The usual things....FSH,all of the maintenance items like cam follower,Haldex oil,cam belt,water pump.

    Drive it,make sure it pulls well,no misfires,no smoking at idle and so on.

    top of my head it should have had:
    several oil and filter changes.
    Several brake fluid changes.
    One haldex oil and filter at 40k.
    Cambelt and water pump at 5 years old.
    Spark plugs and air filter I think are 60k.
    Cam follower is not a service item but generally require replacing 20k-30k miles depending.

    The only thing that would put me off is the fact it's been on long life services.
    Nice car though.

    Who so he did, didn't read his 1st post correctly, sorry jambo

    It's really clean, no stone chips on the front at all (possibly resprayed but it's a good job if it is)
    Drives perfect, feel bloody quick but I am coming from a 2ton 3.0 tdi A6
    Long life service is a bit worrying but I'm sure that I'll have no problem in the time that I'll have it
