Smile Buying a 300M Special

Well if you have read my current posts you know my beautiful Vision TSI just got totalled. So, decided to a buy a Special and wanted some points that I should be looking out for or any downsides of the car.
There are a couple I'm looking at mainly 2002, currently the one I want is a 2003 but it was built in November of 2002 so it has all the 02 goodies but the title of a 2003 due to the build date in the year.

So if theres anything I should really be concerned about looking at or common problem areas ect.... that would be great. Also, is 15,000Canadian a good price for that 2003 with 77,000Kms on it? Car is in perfect condition and never been in an accident or anything.

Thanks for any pointers guys.

that's a pretty good price, make sure the tranny fluid was changed with the correct atf +4 as well as the diff fluid...I always look under the engine to make sure it's all dry....15 grand isn't too bad of a deal but depends on if it's a private sale or dealer?

Its from a dealer. Yes I have looked under and everything looks good and dry. But thanks for the tranny tips. If I buy it they are giving me 30days to take it to my own mechanic and if he finds anything wrong they will fix it free of charge. And i got that shit in writting lol.
