1988 Audi UR Quattro MB

Part Service History
HPI Clear


#### PLEASE NOTE PIC IS FROM APPROX 5 YEARS AGO NEW PICS TO FOLLOW ####

After a lot (A LOT) of thought it breaks my heart to part company with my UR. The car has been laid up in storage for about 85% of my ownership initially due to Audi’s crap parts availability, and more recently due to priority changes in my life and lack of storage space at home.

I am lucky enough now to not need something to give me kicks on the road like the UR used to, I am however after something that’s a blast on track days etc without the NLA issues and cost that the UR brings. I am also concious that standard restored MB’s are getting rare now and I would feel pretty bad pulling it apart to become some sort of Track Mule (plus Amanda would kill me!).

The car is currently in dry storage with a friend until I lose that luxury next week, the car will be arriving home with me sometime in the next 7 days, at which point I will update with photo’s and more detail. Once its back I want to move it on as quickly as possible partly as I have no garage to store it in, and more so because if it sits around too long I’ll not want to let it go! For now this is what I can tell you about it…..

Service History:
Original book pack present including service book

Serviced by Supplying Dealer (Steve Norris Ltd Salisbury) upto 63455 miles
Maintained by 2nd owner (D&I Collins, Goodworth Clatford Garage,Andover) upto my purchase in 2004 @ approx 240k miles. All stamped in service upto approx 200k miles.

Has been in dry storage since 2005, run and moved regularly until 2008, last ran in late 2008/early 2009

All the items in italic were bought and/or replaced while in storage and have therefore covered 0 miles, all new parts were either from local Audi dealer or Pete Reeve@Quattro corner:

Body:
• Good solid shell
• OSF wing shot (brand new original wing supplied with car)
• Requires repair to boot hinge area (under rear screen seal)
• From memory one spot on NSF sill area requires attention
• Various car park marks, stone chips etc
• Damage to front grille (good used spare with car)
• Original fibreglass boot lid (still with supplying dealers logo)
• Original Quattro script rear screen (HRW all works)
• Factory Sunroof (seal poor condition visually but no leaks)

Interior:
• Excellent standard cloth trim
• Fully functioning Digi dash
• Heated seats (inop from memory)
• Worn steering wheel (decent used item available)
• Non-genuine gear knob (good original available)
• Additional guages fitted where head unit lived (previous owner fitted these and moved head unit to glovebox)
• Glove box (inside) and parcel shelf have been cut to allow upgraded stereo fitment
• All stereo equipment now removed

Brakes:
Green stuff brake pads F+R with EBC front discs & Standard rears
• Goodridge stainless hoses
• New rear calipers (to be fitted)

• Resealed front calipers

Engine:
Standard MB
Vehicle was originally stored to allow for engine top end rebuild and turbo replacement, as well as tidying the body. A near 2 year wait for a front wing killed off a lot of my enthusiasm and funds saved for the project as at the time I ran 2 other cars as well as the UR.Over the next couple of years I kept changing my mind (and still do!) over what to with the car, standard rebuild, 20v transplant etc etc. At one point I had accumulated all new rads,oil cooler and new (recon) head from Audi ready to go before changing my mind and selling the lot again! Doh!

I was abroad all last year and the car was stored with a friend, as a result it has not been ran since late 2008/early 2009ish as once the battery went flat he didn’t have time to do anything with it. When I get it back next week I will assess the condition of the engine bay before deciding wether to attempt to start it or not and report back, I have to bear in mind that apart from the poor condition of any fuel left in the vehicle and general state of deterioration of seals etc, the car has not received a new timing belt since in my possession due to the low miles I did then long-term storage.

As a minimum I would suggest it needs a top end overhaul, manifold checking, turbo recon and rads overhauling, I will advise more if I can once I have it back home.

Suspension/Chassis:
Set of Boge dampers
• H+R -35mm Springs
• New top mounts
• New wishbone bushes
• New subframe bushes (to be fitted)
• New rear lower balljoints
• New front lower balljoints
• New Front CV kits
• Wheels refurbed (standard Ronal’s)
• New Pirelli rubber


Missing parts:
• Front + Rear windscreen seals ( I have may have sourced a rear and continue to look for a front,these were cut to allow easy removal of the screens for body inspection/prep for respray, no prep has been started)
• Stereo system/speakers

The car is totally standard apart from the brake/suspension alternatives I have fitted and the holes cut in the parcel shelf for the speakers.

All in all it’s a higher miles, but very original and honest car. Nothing on the car has been hidden,covered up or disguised in any way, it’s a long way from a show car but a good sound base for what can be a really good MB or perfect for a 20v conversion given the cost of these engines at the minute.

Any interest welcomed from now, car will be available to view once its back next week. My intention is to get it gone quickly so once I have upto date pics it will be on pistonheads,Ebay and alike.in the meantime only on Classic Audi & Quattroforum sites.

Price? I don’t need to sell it, it’s a sad but concious descision so I don’t want to give it away and I want it to go to a good home. I’m looking for offers around 3k, which may seem high to some a non-running or un-MOT’d car but it is a rarer, later MB in the best colour with the best interior (IMHO!) etc etc which will surely only appreciate in value??

I would be interested in part ex for something fun for the track, 205 GTI, 944, Clio172, mk2 GTI etc anything else?? If I am unable to sell for the right price I’ll just strip it, 20v it and keep it!!

Car will be located near Melton Mowbray,Leics LE14.

Cheers

Daz

OK, due to work commitments i'm a little slow to follow this up so apologies to those who have contacted me.

I now have the car back and it's available to view by arrangement, i've emailed those who expressed interest directly also.

I do have some pics but they're larger files and there's a few of them so please only request pics if you are genuinely interested as i don't have the time to sit at the PC and send pics to everyone!

At the end of the day if you're serious you'll be up to see it anyway!

Cheers

Daz

What is this fascination with stripping things? Does no one actually make anything (other than money) these days.

This looks to be an honest car and I know Daz will want it to go to a good home.

It won't be broken on my watch, i'd rather keep it as its not a forced sale financially. its actually, i believe, one of the few genuinely honest ones left that has had no previous resto or bodges just for a quick for resale etc.I'm the only 3rd owner which seems to be rare enough!

Please come and see it but don't make daft comments without doing that at least!
