About to buy a rebuilt 2013 Audi A4, any tips or advice?

I realize most of you would never consider buying a salvage/rebuilt title car, but for anyone who can offer me some advice I'd appreciate it. I'm going to meet the seller in person since he's nearby where I live and probably pay with a cashiers check this monday the 30th, and just figured I'd post on here if any of you would be kind enough to give me any advice or tips on what to look for etc. I'm planning on driving this for a long time hopefully, so the difficulty of one day selling a branded title car isnt of concern. Anyhow, happy holidays to you all and thanks in advance to any advice.

Here's the listing that has all the information on the car, (2013 A4 premium plus 8200 miles and a rebuilt title), won the ebay bid for 21,540, thats out the door with just 125.00 extra for a documentation fee. I spoke to the seller he seems legit, has positive feedback for other vehicles he's sold and as mentioned I'm meeting him next week to look it over and probably pay in full.

    I can't imagine doing this transaction. Even if I had "calling in well money." What is the attraction in doing this? Save money? Make money? Learn about auto repair and maintenance?

    Is there a favor you are trying to do for someone?

    Do you own an auto repair facility?

    I am hoping to get the why before I would even attempt to reply with any kind of advice other than to advise you to keep at least $20,000 in reserve.
