If you buy the car get ISTA software in your laptop. Your definitely need it some point😀
Check the trunk area if there is sign of water. If not, your good. My advice is to clean those water pipes once a year.
Trunk wiring is easy to fix if some problems show up.
Listen the engine that there is no rattle or clicking/ticking sounds, also check if there is any leaks. Good engine will idle very smooth after engine is warmed up.
Check oil change intervals from the car records.
SMG could be sluggish in slow speeds but that's the nature of it. Test car in M-mode and give it a good push.
At some point you may need to pour some cash in the car but that's life😀 V10 sound is so addictive and gives me smiles everytime when i start her.
Let us know how it turns out.
