Hi all

New to the forum and was wondering if I could ask some advice.

I have seen a 2018 gen2 v10 plus that I am going to view on Weds and wondered if there is anything i should be looking out for it to have as a "must have".

So far i have established that i need an upgrade to get android auto working but the dealer has offered to include this in the price

Any advice would be greatly appreciated as last thing i want to do is get it home and realise i have missed something important! :)

No offense, but you should spend a month or so on here and do a deeper dive before purchasing. I learned a TON over about two months before I bought mine and still overlooked or undervalued certain features (no regrets). There are just too many elements and considerations. Only you know how you plan on using the car and what matters to you. You need to figure out what the various choices are and the pros and cons of each choice.

Carbon bits are often a worthwhile extra.
Upgraded hifi.
Wheels mint and tyres good or get dealer to get them done.
Being a 2018 it should be in really good nick paint/bodywork wise.
Ensure its fully serviced and up to date.

Here is the checklist to go through for Gen-2:

1) 2017 vs 2018 (pre-facelift) vs 2020 & later (post-facelift)
2) Quattro base vs plus/performance vs RWS/RWD
3) Warranty exists or not
4) diamond seats vs regular seats
5) sport seats vs race shell seats (very uncomfortable)
6) upgraded audio system
7) carbon interior
8) carbon exterior
9) extended carbon exterior for 2020 and above
10) carbon ceramic brakes?
11) Sport exhaust?
12) mileage
13) exterior and interior colors
14) black optic package for 2017/2018
15) Dynamic dampers or not
16) price

a lot of research to do, read a lot about all the above, make a required/nice-to-have list, shop, plan to do PPI before purchasing.

That about covers what to look for. I'll add that the dealer added tinted side windows which look nice with the black optics package.
