Audi 200

I'm thinking of buying an '87 71KMiles Audi 200 from a local dealer. (I think it's the 5000 in the US), it's not a Quattro, but has a 5-cylinder turbo engine fitted. My problem is 'techno-fear', it's got ABS, turbo, auto-transmission, air conditioning and electric everything. 

What are the main points I should be aware of when buying this type of car?. 

I am particularly worried about the long term (100K miles+) reliability with the turbo. Also I have doubts about the amount of on-board electrics with a car of this age. I would appreciate any comments you may have.

Thanks in advance.
