Robert P.:

Sounds good...don't worry be happy.... of course any major repair will  
probably be costly.
Areas to check:
Steering Rack, CV Joints, Turbo boost and (turbo) oil/cooling for leaks.
Engine coolant and oil check for contamination from oil or water 
Climate controls (air cond., heat blower)
Sun roof for operation and radio antenna for up and down
Other than that the rest if it fails may not be a disaster
Good luck, good price
