1991 V8 quattro
This weekend I am going to go look at a 91 V8 with 5sp. I wanted to know
about the inboard disk brakes. Can they be replaced or should they be
replaced? problems? What about the 5 speed, is it problem prone also?
They owner is asking $12,500 said that it needs new paint? ran it through
some bushes I think. I had not really considered this car (V8) as I want
to get an S4 or 91 200tq but with the 5 speed I hope it is more to my liking
than the slush version was. What will a audi dealer charge to inspect a
car and will they really tell me anything I cant see for myself.
On another note I have always been wary of high miliage audis because we
have not had any to make it past 120k, warped heads, cracked heads and
blocks. It happenned to 5 cars, a 81 diesil to 86 5000 wagon which were
serviced regulary alongside 3 peugoet 505s which are still purring today.
Thanks for any feedback about the V8, if I dont buy it I can pass along
the info if anyone is interested. I know some will think the price is
low but I have not seen many around here that were high or comparabale to
what I see on the net. No demand at all for quattros around here(New
Orleans) except by audi loyalists.
