1986 Audi 4000 S 1.8L MG from North America
Old school pocket rocket
Clutch, suspension, struts, bushings and ball joints etc. at 80,000.
Injectors, timing belt, water pump, fuel pump at 120,000.
Suspension, bushings and ball joints at 192,000.
Two exhausts and one cat.
This car has always been a strong runner. I was told the MG on the engine number is one of the best/reliable engines Audi/VW made. This car is better than the quattro model.
I have a '87 4000cs Quattro in my parents garage, in pieces.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Just about to purchase a 86 4000s. I was wondering if anyone know how to get more power from this engine. Is there any good bolt-on parts to gain horse power? This is for after I replace the clutch and shocks. Hey, for 100 dollars I think I'm getting a pretty good deal on a running car that leaks no oil. Oh yeah, do they make body kits for this car? Can I fit the 87 or 88 body parts on a 86 (headlights, tail-lights, grille and fenders). The car I'm purchasing, the body is fine but I'd like to make some changes. Thanks.

Just to let whoever wants to know. I posted this back in 2004. Well, I'm at 240,000 miles, replaced transmission and clutch. That's it, engine/valve head never touched.
