The car failed a rolling test for the brakes, oil sensors are flashing up on the dashboard, even thow i took a picture of the car on the day of purchase with the guy filling the car up with oil, the fan controll module is runing on full power after ten minutes with no key in the ignition runing the battery flat, there is water leaking into the car but the trace can not be found, and the front end of the car has been some sort of accident which audi dealer have confirmed it was a big one for the damage which is behind it, but they said it has had a front cosmetic job to hide it all away....
