B4Audi 80 wanted
Preferably an avant or saloon petrol 2.0 or above, what's around?

Was the A4 a lost cause mate...?:o

It was a bit far gone, unfortunately didn't realise after alot of work had already been done, it ended up being unreliable to the point where I didn't trust it as a daily anymore

Sorry to hear that, it was always going to be a bit of a project hence the price, hope you got back what you spent on it?:)

Yeah lost a few quid but not the end of the world, think it was further gone than either of us realised

What was the final straw with it then? Know it had a few issues but thought it might come back from the brink...

It ended up having a complete rear subframe and shock mounts, upper front control arms, shocks and spring all round, turbo, exhaust, had a host of coolant leaks and oil leaks but think there were deeper engine problems causing this, other small things then failed its MOT so was sold as a failure, sure someone will keep going with it but as I say kinda just lost faith in it

Hopefully there is an 80 out there with your name on it then. Really genuinely Sorry it didnt work out with the A4.

B4Dan 07-07-17 12:26 PM

Not a problem mate these things happen, as I say we both knew it needed work but probably didn't realise the extent of the work it needed
