First, read the FAQs here Fourtitude.com - TT (Mk1, a4 chassis)

Plan to replace the timing belt, tensioner, water pump and associated equipment if they have not been replaced in the past 5 years. Failure to do so could lead to a $5K+ repair if the timing belt sysem fails.

Make sure all the dash guages and the pixels in the center display are readible. Loss of a few pixels is normal. The temp guage should read dead center when at operating temperature

Make sure the glove box latch works perfectly - $1,000 to fix because you have to replace the entire glove box.

While the manual tranny is excellent, there have ben a few reports of premature failure of the valve body for the auto.

Make sure the rear window is well attached.
