In all seriousness, unless you have the time and the money to go through the
car bumper to bumper and fix a couple of large problems and a million little
ones, don't buy it.  Without service records you are playing Russian
roulette, it may run for a week - it may run for 10 years.

I'm really not trying to rain on any parades, I've owned and driven nothing
but Audi's (1 VW) since 1975.  I am comfortable with their systems and
idiosyncrasies, I have reliable and _Cheap_ parts sources, and I do all my
own work.  This has saved me big$$ owning Audi's.  If you have to pay
someone else to do work on it, your $2000.00 car may turn into a $5,000 car
or more.

My .02.  I really do love these cars, people have told me I'm nuts!
