I have option to buy 2001 A4 2.8L quattro wagon, 280k miles. Guy only wants $1k for it. Given the low price, would I be a total d*ick for asking for a pre-purchase inspection? Guy doesn't have any service records.

If not, I'm at least going to get a post-purchase inspection. Local VW/Audi shop will do it for $120. I'd even be willing to pay for the PPI even if I don't buy it.

So specific to this car and in general, at what price point should I just risk it and buy the car?

you know you'll be finding stuff, you know its a beater, you know you're getting a good deal, you know its a waste of money on your end.

Depends .... I'd say anything north of $5k would be a good move IMO.
