Hello my dear Ross Tech friends,

I'm about to buy a car.
The car I'm aiming at is a Shadow Blue Metallic VW Polo 6R 1.6 TDI CAYB with DSG from 2011.
I'll be ripping its guts out and re-use the engine and DSG for my own car.
Car looks in good nick in general, lots of options (xenon, seat heating, MFSW, climatronic).

Now, I know a thing or two about cars, but it would be nice to give it a quick glance at its soul before purchasing.
Do you have any tips at what to look out for (especially with vcds)?

I'll be making an autoscan just to see whether any module is or has been unhappy recently.
Concerning DSG gearbox (DQ200/0AM), is there anything I could scan specifically to determine its health?
Clutch wear, mechatronic state, wear and tear, lubrication, etc?
Same question for the engine...

Thanks in advance.
