I am looking to buy a car,and Audi is on my want list ,budget is only £3000
max. I have seen a few on the net for sale,most seem to be 94-95 (year).Are
Audis of this sort of age OK?Reliability wise?Are there certain models that
I should avoid?What about mileage?Is an above average mileage OK?Any
particular things to look out for?
I dont do a lot of mileage in a car(ride a motrobike),probably no more than
2-3K a year.
Go for a private seller, Audi 80 quattro with FSH '91 on. High miles are ok
if well maintained and cambelts changed on-time etc. Get one with air-con
and you'll have a superb little car. Avants are a wee bit more dosh as they
are more useful, also a better buy. 2.6 V6 go on and on (again - regular
servicing is key) should be good for 200K miles plus!
why go for an 80 when you can get an A4 for that price, you can even pick up
high mile A6's for around 3k,
This looks a great buy
1.8T for that price
Dont bother with a 80 there a bit dated now when you can get an A4
Buy a landrover or range rover, great machines & for the miles you do it
will be ace off roading as a new hobby. I just bought a mint Trooper &
wouldn't swap it for my wife's A4 cabriolet!
It all depends what you want, 80s are probablty the best for the price, a
£3000 A4 will probably cost you more to maintain, you will be lucky to get a
good one for £3000, you will probably get a good audi 80 2.0 E for around
£1000 to £1500, 1992 to 1993, the build quality is far superior to that of
the A4, the late 80s look the best, & are easy for you to maintain yourself,
no service lights to turn off, & a stronger body shell, if you go for a A4
be prapared to spend money on the front suspension as they suffer from
suspension arm problems, there are 4 on eack side & these give problems,
rear brake calipers are also a problem on older high milage cars,
