    I am looking to buy a used S4 and a 2004 S4 has caught my eye. I have never bought a used car before and have no ideas what to look out for.

    The car I have my eye on is an 04 reg with 114k miles. It has a full service history and has recently has had the steering rack, alternator and belt repaired. They also have paperwork for and receipts for all the work done. Anything in particular I should look out for?

    There are many generic considerations and some specific to S4, some off the top of my head

    Deffo check all wheel arches as they are a weak point in regards to rust
    when was the timing chain (tensioners) last looked at
    How much does the engine rattle when started from cold
    (If cab) check radio as the majority if not previously repaired will have rubbish reception
    Check alarm as most will of died by now (internal batteries) it is fixable though
