All round marvel
Poor running when first bought, but cured by replacement of both lambda sensors. Both catalysts later failed, attributable to earlier lambda sensor failure.
Drivers door window winder failed, £500 from Audi, used a Ford Sierra item and 3 hours to modify. Ford item cost £10 second hand, approx £70 new.
Lacks grip in damp or wet due to plenty of torque. Next Audi will be a quattro.
Will cruise all day at 100 mph+
Quiet (even at 130 mph), at 80mph in 5th gear acceleration is unbelievable. Not worth revving above 4500 rpm.
Legendary Audi build quality.
Practicality dictates next car will be an estate ie Audi 100 estate 2.8 Quattro.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
