Hi, as title suggests, I’m thinking of buying a 2009 A5 2.0 TFSI (petrol)
It’s got FSH and had the oil consumption issue addressed buy Audi, with a new engine installed
So, what else are know issues and what to look for?
I have a diagnostic reader, which I’ll be taking with me
Thanks

Good choice.
Things to look out for,
Rust under top of front arches
Windows go up and down smoothly
Air con works
Flickering backlight leds in clocks
Notchy steering feel at slow speeds
Stone rash on front end, lights, bumper etc
Probably more, but generally everything else you would normally look for visually and mechanically.

I always look at wheels when buying a car, decent brand matching tyres and good condition wheels can but not always give a good indication of how well it's been looked after.
Good luck
