I'm looking at buying a second hand Audi A4 1.6 102hp and was wondering is there anything I should be aware of? It's an 07 model with 50,000 miles on the clock. Is it worth €9,000?

No, more like €5-6k unless it’s in ludicrously good condition and has delivery mileage. The 1.6 engine is pretty underpowered but it’s robust — just watch for problems with the fuel injectors. You’ll need to check the suspension for wear and tear too (listen for nasty clunking noises over bumps) and, for a automobile of this age, you really need to check everything. It would help if it comes with a full service history, but at that age I doubt that it will.
