hi,

i`m pretty new to t4s but i`m going to look at one at the weekend hopefully - what should i be looking out for ? the mileage is quite high, but its had new cam belt,etc - if i see smoke on startup / when driving, what could be the cause - is this normal, etc?

do the head gaskets tend to go when they get high mileage (this is a 2.5 tdi)? is engine work expensive if needed?

thanks,
mike

depends what you class as high have seen these with 700,000 miles on thats high ,between100,000 and 200,000 is about average if its been well serviced it will go for ever
