Default My first Audi: What to look out for. (2003 Audi all road 2.7t)

Start by saying that I've always been an Audi admirer, but seen them as a luxury item as if I were to buy a boat. Bought this at a great price instead of a Subaru for my wife, and once I got in I loved it. I took it up some snowy, curvy back roads in Oregon and I was sold on the allroad. And the price was fair. 2002 128k miles, 2.7t allroad for $3600, in Oregon where the vehicle market is pretty steep it seems like.

Anyways I know the general things to keep an eye
on. Airbag suspension, always keep all the way down don't screw with it. Will do a coil suspension conversion at some point. Treat the turbo better than you treat your wife, air filters oil changes. After watching some videos I'm somewhat confident I can replace the belts, water pump etc...


That being said, any tips tricks to keeping this one running strong or thing to look out for that I'm missing?


After thought.... there is a chirping belt-like noise coming from under the hood but it is right in front of the passenger side windshield. Any ideas?

This is how good of a car buyer I am(sarcasm intended).I just check the suspension and it has already a coil suspension conversion. May have saved myself a few bucks.

I am an Audi admirer too, I am in love with these cars and I always like to know new things about them! My Audi A4 is currently on a lease by DSR Leasing https://dsrleasing.com/ and everything is perfect!
