Test drive the crap out of it. Bring a buddy if you don't know what to listen/look for.

Have someone look it over. See if owner can provide receipts of modifications. Who did the engine swap? Do all the gauges still function? Where was it tuned at? Was it a 7mgte or ge orgininally? Which turbo is on the engine and where did it come from?

Look at how clean the engine bay is, will give you an idea of how well he took care of it.

Price is steep especially if none of the upgrade were done properly... Why is he selling the car?

That should get you started at least...

Also make sure you check up on the paint job since the white one was clearly repainted. And a carfax doesn't hurt to do either to see where the car has been.
