Thinking of buying an A5 3.0 tdi 2008-2009

Hi everyone. I am thinking about swapping my car with a 2008-2009 A5. I am aware that an old car can come with some technical issues and it cannot be perfect after 12 years. Before my current car I had two other VAGs from that period and they were ok. There are many reasons why I would choose this model (coupe but spacious, quattro, enough power) and it's in the right price range £6,500-£7,500 at 80-90k miles.
Is there something in particular that needs to be checked before buying this model ? (3.0tdi quattro, manual).
Thank you

Nothing really model specific, they're solid enough if looked after. The usual checks for collision damage, dodgy repairs, any electrics not working, signs of neglect, etc.

I have a 2010 3.0 and the previous owner looked after it well, everything works and it's like driving a new car.
