From a time when VW/Audi was run by engineers, not accountants
Distributor cap disintegrated, causing erratic running.
Oil sender faulty giving incorrect pressure readout.
A hot start issue.
Only thing to be aware of is that parts are getting harder to find, expect to pay in the region of £70-80 for a rear light lens for example if you can find one!
The car is quick for a car that is now 20 years old, but still evokes a truly enjoyable driving experience when travelling cross-country!
The handling and balance of the Torsen-diff model is a joy, and you get so much more driver feedback than the equivalent Impreza. When you look at the fact that the car has done over 200k with only a reconditioned cylinder head, you have to marvel at how over-engineered these cars were.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
