1999 Audi A4 2.8 Quattro 2.8 Quattro from North America
This Model is an owners nightmare
Engine imploded at 55,000 miles. Cost of this repair $9,000.00. The car has never been the same. Eight months later the transmission needed to be replaced, at a cost of $7,000. Brakes have been replaced 6 times over the 5 years I have owned the car. Many of the recurring problems were diagnosed and repaired under warranty. To repair simple things is costly, for example to replace the generator the entire front of the engine has to be removed.
Never buy an Audi A4 out of warranty.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

My sentiments exactly, never buy an Audi out of warranty, unless you live in Germany, The cars are not well made, and the local service outlets are just not up to scratch with trying to manage such a badly designed and put together vehicle.

Omg your engine imploded, oh man that sucks, but I am curious to see what that looks like... but If I were in your situation I would just buy a new car instead of repairing it.
