I would ask if the DSG service and carbon cleaning has been performed on that vehicle yet. If not, that service is what some consider to be fairly pricey.

On the older GTIs there were some issues with the timing belt tensioner and water pump. I think the intake manifold is another common problematic item. Granted, that is not to say that you will have problems with them, but that is what is commonly complained about on the various VW forums.

As for those rims, they look plasti-dipped versus powder coated. Finally, my suggestion would be to test drive the car, and see if you like it or not.
