Excellent, strong and well made car


When I got it, it was miss-firing, but after cleaning the ISV and fixing the vacuum leaks, it now purrs.

Needed the wheel bearings replaced (front and rear).

Boot wiring loom, a common fault, but easy to fix.

General Comments:

This has been a excellent car, and better than a lot of other motors that I have had in the past.

It's nearly 20 years old, and drives like new and never let me down.

Besides the air-con, everything works fine.

I paid 500 euro for it, and it was worth every cent.

I used to have an Audi 80 when I was living in the UK, and that also was very good.

I would buy another Audi, as the build quality is excellent.

The only thing that I would say is that the boot is small for a big car.

Fast, good handling and reliable. Also good on fuel for a 2.L.

5cyl engine sounds great.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
