1991 200 QW
I saw your posting and had a couple of questions regarding your search
for your car. I saw and drove a 1991 200 Quattro Wagon with 84K miles on
it. It was silver and looked new. It didn't drive like new, though, and
before I negotiate on it, I was wondering what you found out regarding
the internal / external front disks. This car, apparently, has internal
disks because the front rotors are obstructed with a BLACK plate. I can
see part of the rotor but not as clearly as on most cars with front disk
brakes. Am I correct in my assumption? The only other cars I've seen
with internal calipers are the Alfa Romeo's and from what I can remember,
their rotors can not be seen from the cut outs in the wheel.
This car has a dead ECU as the car doesn't make a lot of boost (the gauge
doesn't move above 0.2). I think the car may have bad synchros in 1st
and 2nd because there is a metal to metal noise eminating from the engine
compartment when shifting. I don't know what else it could be because it
only does it in first and 2nd.
The dealer is asking $15,500 and acknowledged he would take less to make
the car correct. This dealer is in Framingham Mass and has another gold
1991 TQW and miscellaneous other Audis and Quattros.
If anyone has any response, I'd surely appreciate their input.
