1990 Audi 200 Turbo Quattro 2.2 turbo
Runs, rides and looks great, LOVE IT!
Replaced Driver seat due to torn leather. Don't forget to swap heater core in seat like I did. @139K.
Starter replaced, rather pricey. @139K.
Alternator replaced @160K (Skip the cheaper 90V and get the more $$ 110V)
Sunroof has issues, have to do some button pushing to get it to seat properly.
Power steering rack leaks like a sieve and fluid is about $30 a quart. Spending about $40 a month on fluid, but this part + labor is an expensive one to fix so for now let it flow.
Dash computer does a fun digital display light show on occasion, give her a good slap and she's good again.
Has left me stranded 3 times, while driving it decides to stop running. 2 of the 3 started back up in about an hour 3rd wouldn't start for 4 days. After each occasion goes back to running perfect. Mechanic can't figure out why??? Anyone have an idea?
Exhaust / Cat connection squeaks like crazy sometimes, but are completely tight.
All in all for a 14 year old car with over 200K on the odomoter. this car is fantastic. The repair cost are costly, but the car is worth it.
This car drives like it has a V8, the turbo kicks in (and you will feel it) and you go.
The seats are very comfortable and back is roomy with a very large trunk.
It is a gas guzzler, but to get a deluxe car at a economy price you pay the price.
If your looking to purchase one be sure to have a qualified Audi mechanic give the car a good look over or it could really cost you, and steer clear of the automatic.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Your car stalls because of a leaky rubber air intake boot.
Recirculating oil vapor pools up inside/bottom of this rubber boot making the rubber soft until it cracks then leaks.
Fork out fifty bucks and replace.

There is a transistor on the rear of the instrument cluster, if it is bad it will allow your gages you describe not to work. It is a small square black transistor about 3/8" X 3/8", and 1/8" high, with three prongs coming out of it, in a fork like config.
