    I'd say slim - 2g was faded out in 2008 but you might get the odd car with it.

    Have you got any pictures yet from the dealer?

    get the reg plate, then the chassis number from that, then put it into https://secure-www.audi.de/de/brand/de/tools/myaudi.htx/ then you can see all the factory specs for the car

    I've found out the car I want to buy has DVD Sat Nav and was registered in April 2009. Will I be able to play DVDs on it?

    No, only 3G HDD has this ability.

    Did you find out if it has rear LEDs?
