Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Volkswagen Scirocco coupe?

This is a sporting coupe so will have been used enthusiastically, so check the bodywork for scuffs and dents and the alloy wheels for any kerb damage. Check that the car runs true, and the steering wheel is straight. Also look for black smoke from the exhaust on start up. 

Being based on Golf parts, the VW Scirocco has always had a decent reliability record. Most reports concern rattles and squeaks from the boot and windows - the latter are the hardest to fix.
