A4 1.8TQ Manual-3 at dealer
This is to follow my previous post on the 3 A4 1.8TQ
5speeds that I've seen at the local dealership for about 3 weeks now.
I had to call them up today and ask them what's going on as nobody
else seems to have any of these on dealer lots around the country.
He explained that the 3 on his lot were part of an Audi ride and
drive campaign where one could drive the A4 1.8TQ 5 speed to see how
much they liked the car and compare it to the 2.8 V6 5 speed.
Everyone loved these cars! The problem? The Department of
Transportation wouldn't think of letting Audi sell these particular
A4's to anyone as they are European models of course. This explains
the Km/hr speedo.
I begged him to let me drive one of these today. The
answer? You guessed it-a definite no since the campaign is over.
So why are these cars still on the lot? He says Audi is just
being lazy and hasn't shipped them back yet. (Anyone know of a good
hotwiring technician?) He says that everyone drools all over the
Yellow one! Too bad says I. Guess we'll be waiting till January here.
