1993 Audi 80 16v 2.0 16v from UK and Ireland
Good when it works
Fuel injection this caused the car to die on the motor way. I had the car checked out and found that the fuel pressure was iregular. Fault found was Mixture controll unit which incorporates the air flow meter (AIR BOX AREA) Have not fixed this yet due to it costing £
Very nice to drive when it wasn't pinking. If the 16v unit pinks it means its knackered as the timing is ECU controlled and you will soon have a rather expensive bill on your hands.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I currently also own a same car and have exactly the same problems with it: coolant sensor, lambda probe died, idle control valve sticking. Besides that I also have a bad fuel pump which does not provide sufficient fuel pressure, faulty temperature and fuel level gages. Some severe electrical problems too: short circuiting, cables burning out and so on. The car has 125000 km on it.
Overall, I'm quite happy with the build quality of the car and handling, but it has way too much problems with the engine and electrics/electronics. Too bad.
