Not mine, probably rarer than an 80 quattro!

bit on the pricey side, but cool retro motoring an 60mpg is always good!

Yep its pre TDi technology, but that 1588cc turbo diesel was a good unit in my opinion - capable of massive mileages and very economical.

I had a Passat with the same engine years ago as a company car and liked it. Well known journalist Peter Noad has had an F reg Series 80 TD since he bought it of the Audi UK press fleet in 1989. when it was 6 months old.

1.6 TD are fine engines AFAIK

A friend of mine has a pretty rare Audi 80 CD turbodiesel, but it got rear ended lately

Hmm, well i guess everyone has different experiences! We had a MK2 Golf GTD which I think shares the same engine? Just remember it being a pig to start, sounding like a bag of spanners and not really going that well!
My 306 has an IDI turbo diesel engine......just about to do a Bosch pump conversion and fit a Garrett GT15 turbo, should run like a dream then!
