What should I look for in a used Audi A4 sports?

As with the previous A4 Cabriolet that it's based on, this generation of car is generally reliable, but there are some things to be aware of.

The electrics and ventilation systems are the most vulnerable, so make sure all switches and controls work correctly, and that the climate control blows cold as well as hot air.

You need to make sure that the roof is in good condition, because repairs can prove costly. Make sure there are no tears in the fabric, and look for signs of water leaks with the roof up and down. Older fabric hoods will require cleaning and re-waterproofing to stay at their best.
