    405s are not young cars by any means nowadays!

    Everything on cars 15+ years old could be in poor condition but on the other hand you might find a mint condition car.

    As with all second hand car purchases:-

    what's the service record like and is it complete?

    How many Ks has it done?

    What's the condition of the body/paintwork/interior?

    What does it drive like?


    If you have a particular car in mind, can you post some pictures and then AF members could make some appropriate comments.

    Cheers

    Which engine also. 1.9L and 2.0L motors are quite different.

    As are the bodies they're in.

    Cam85 has a nice S2 for sale.

    And there's one you can have for free in WA.

    Drive the thing. If it drives well with no funny noises, it's most likely good.

    Other than that, for a car of that age and value, I would be happy if there was no dent underneath from some monkey trying to jack/hoist it up the wrong way.

    No, the free one is taken three times over, pending collection (hence I haven't yet said in the for sale ad).
