All the usual questions should be asked about the maintenance of the car.
When looking @ receipts I would like to see the same shop being used for maintenance. Many different shops touching a car just doesn't boad well with me.
I all so would pay considerable attention to the turbo's. As far as I know... & maybe someone else knows for sure...... but I think these cars used the K03 turbo's? Which I've heard bad tghings about. I have heard failures of them & the upgrade K04 turbo's are pricey from what I hear...... but maybe Mr Dewitt would know more?
