1992 Audi 100 E 2.0 petrol from UK and Ireland
Classic executive saloon
Lots but but mostly wear and tear; it is old and kept as a classic/second car for me.
Exhaust, suspension, brakes, you name it. All the expected consumables of a 25+ year old high mileage car.
The body has been waxed and looked after carefully since new, I knew the previous owner. No rust whatsoever, always garaged and rarely used in rain.
Engine was also serviced on time, has an oil leak now but never any major issues in the years I have had it.
Minor electronic issues such as windows being slow to move, etc.
Bloody love it!
What a good looking car. My black 100 saloon looks very much like the A6 that it was named a few years later in the mid 1990's; the early 90's Audi 100 was the last to carry the 100 name. It is very sharp in black metallic exterior and beige interior.
2.0 auto is OK, there were bigger engines that offer more performance. This can achieve over 30 MPG on long drives however, you will not get that out of the V6's. Performance is lethargic sometimes however; the auto box probably blunts the acceleration a bit.
The car is very nice to drive/ride in. Interior has a quality feel and has all the electrics expected of a car of this type. Audi has always been my favorite manufacturer for interiors, just such a solid feel, especially cars from this time period.
Overall I just love cruising in it. My previous Audi 80 was much the same, but the 100 being bigger in size is just a more relaxing car to be in.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I love this era of Audis, I had the '88 and '90 Audi 80. The dashboards were spot-on for design and ergonomics, a far cry from the gimmicky looking dashboards from Audi since around 2007 (I hate that MMI needed to control the radio). The Audi 100 was well-suited to the larger engines - I think a 5-cylinder 2.3 and the 2.8 6-cylinder, makes for the perfect relaxed cruiser. If your roads are flat, the automatic 2.0 will be adequate. Weak spot for 4-cylinder Audis is the plastic stuff for the cooling system, so things like the plastic elbow connecting the radiator hose to the head or block, fortunately they are cheap.

100% agree 1990's interiors for most cars were good. As for 2010 onward cars, myself I cannot stand them, manufacturers have an obsession it seems to make all cars now like a smart phone on wheels, certainly the very latest cars anyway. I'm not against technology, but analogue controls were just much better suited for some features. Check out the review of a 2020 VW Golf on here titled "all digital, all nonsense". Says it all.
