Hello All,

I'm just about to embark on a possible ownership of a B8.5 2.0TDI 187bhp Avant. It's done 74k miles and I'm a little nervous about buying a car with it's clutch potentially at the end of it's days. So my main question was about buying advice: should I avoid, or are there a few easy tests to see whether the clutch has a lot left in it? If driven correctly, what kind of mileage should I get out of the clutch?

Next, anything else to look out for? Steering judder for the power steering issue? Anything else?

Lastly, can anyone recommend some good Indies around Swindon?
