1989 Audi 200 2.2 gas turbo


Heater flap actuator.

Power window switches.

General Comments:

There is little not to love about this car. The cloth seats are nowhere near as comfortable as the leather seats in my Audi 5000, but still very comfy.

Gas mileage for the auto trans is poor in comparison to my manual trans Audi 5000.

The FWD Audi 200 feels different in the way it plants itself on the road. The AWD 5000 feels noticeably more tank like and is generally a better drive.

Brakes are stronger on the 200.

Often these cars suffer from a "no heat situation". A fairly easy fix if it's not a heater core. I got my 200 from a person who lost the cabin heat and no longer wanted to be bankrupted by a service department. The 200 uses an electric flap actuator that fails. Cost me 80.00 new and I now have great heat.

My wife has a 2014 Nissan Sentra; though a decent car with a few modern electronic gizmos, it is very weak in comfort and driving enjoyment compared to the Audi. A poor comparison I know, but old car vs new car, the Audi is much more fulfilling.

I am not a fan of most of the Volkswagen brand, but the older Audis kind of have a soul. You take care of them and they do the same for you.

1991 Audi 200 quattro 20v 20 valve turbo


Incredible car; more reliable than my 1998 Chevy Suburban


Power steering pump and cap went out at about 204,000 miles. Easy to replace; took about an hour to replace. Bleeding took another 30 minutes.

Bought the pump re-manufactured at Checkers for $180.

Bypass valve replaced at 205000. Bought on ebay for $60.00 new. Easy to replace. Resolved the stalling problem I had.

If you do buy one of these cars, make sure to use Mobil 1 synthetic oil every 5000 miles.

General Comments:

Great car. Bought it for $2400 from a guy in Tucson. He took great care of it. The pearl white paint was perfect, did not even have any door dings in it. He even gave me a additional 12 oil filters with the car. He changed the oil with Mobil 1 synthetic oil every 5000 miles. Let's just say he took incredible care of it.

The car has 207000 miles on it and is still running great. These cars are sweet in the snow, nothing will beat it.

Very fast car, close to about 280 horsepower rocket (chipped). Incredible up the mountains!!

Only problem of late is that the boost is not like it used to be. Boost is about 1.6 bars; should be about 2.2 bars. Probably solenoid or k24 turbo going out.

Make sure to go for the 1991 20 valve, as these cars are the most reliable. They are rare, but can still be found!

1990 Audi 200 2.2 turbo


Good starting tuner car


Haven't had too much wrong with this car yet, but I can see some things going wrong with it.

It has a collapsed breather hose.

Could use new spark plugs really bad, and needs the injectors cleaned pretty bad.

Could also use a silicone hose going from the inter cooler to the intake manifold. Could also use some stiffer suspension.

General Comments:

The car performs pretty good for having a 5 banger in it. I want more out of it. I'm gonna have some exhaust work done to put a stage 1 chip in it. And possibly have the heads polished and maybe the intake ported.

I'm thinking about fabbing up a cold air intake, but there's so much on that air box, I need to learn more about it. I'm also gonna put a ceramic clutch in it.

I found a boot online you are looking for, if you look around the price varies quite a bit from $30.00 to over $100.00. I am looking for the rubber intake boot from the top of the fuel distributor, found a couple about 6-8 months ago, cannot seem to locate now.
