Default Audi A4 $11k with only 40K purchase advice please!! :]

So i found this incredible A4 with low miles for its age 40K!! its Gray, with 6 Speed Quattro. I soo want to jump the trigger on it lol.

My question is: how reliable is this transmission? It seems to be an update from the ZF 5HP19. Im looking to replace my '02 A4 with CVT and its horrible shuddering problem. I just want a car that works

So far i've had:
2000 A6 that had a forward launching or slipping in lower 1-2 gears issue.
2002 A4 with the horrible CVT (RUN AWAY FROM THIS TRANNY)

I also have:
2000 New Beetle with 01M tranny running strong lol maybe because it was made by VW and not ZF.

From my research, this transmission 6HP19 is used in V8 models also upto 2009. From its torque handling capabilities this looks like a very solid transmission, i mean to handle the likes of an S6 and its power. The A4 im looking at is only a 2.0T. Just seems like a massive transmission. Most of what i could find are valve body problems..

Any input is appreciated, also any tips on the 2.0T engine. From my research ill probably do the fuel pump cam follower asap. Looks like a scary scenario. I really like this car, and its owner that took good care of it. Carfax shows 7 years of ownership and 40K miles and all service shows from the same dealer.

Last thing lol will an '08 trunk lid fit the '06 trunk without problems? I really want the built in spoiler.
