With reguards to the milage, and it alone, here's my $.02.

The lifespan of an Audi engine is VERY long, especially if cared for well. 
I've personally seen one with 460K on the original engine, down to even the 
headgaskets. That car burned a quart every 1500 miles. I've owned a 4000Q up 
to 340K, the next owner ran it to 440K, at which time the odo stopped. The 
car kept on going. It burned about a quart every 2000 when I owned it, and 
was without a doubt the most reliable car Ive ever owned. Started at 39 
below (actual temp) without a plug in heater of any sort. My roommates cars 
(domestic) wouldn't start even with heaters!!

Anyhow, if it's been maintained, especially by one owner, the rest of the 
car will tell the story. If it's in good condition, there's no reason to
