Walk away IMO, both my B7s have never had starting issues (instant start).
But not only for the starting issue, the price seems far too low. Mileage is OK (on the high side), though it's OK if you're prepared to not be able to sell privately once you're done with it, and be limited to trading in.
I'll say it again, rather save up a bit more for a 2007 model with <150,000km.
Just keep this open and keep refreshing - http://www.gumtree.co.za/s-cars-bak...00000,,,,,&pr=90000,200000&sort=dt&order=desc.

I wouldn't say my car fails to start ever, but if I switch it "ON" and then wait for the fuel pump and start up cycle to complete before turning the key further it certainly starts more nicely.
Maybe he was just a bit quick to turn the key and then let go again?
So I guess it depends what you mean by "properly".
