A recent advert. in a local paper has me thinking. "'90 V8 Quattro, auto, all
options, black, 50K miles, exceptional condition. $13,900 firm." This strikes
me as a pretty good price for this car, *if* it is as advertised. I called the
fellow; he's not the original owner, doesn't know if the front brakes are
stock or not ("UFOs"), says everything works. Now, I have had it in mind
that if I were to upgrade from my current '89 100Q, I'd keep my eyes open for
the much talked about '91 200Q 20-valve. I hadn't really had the V8 in mind.
Could anyone with knowledge/experience with both models answer a few quick
questions I have?
- Is this a good/fair price?
- What was the original list price? Edmunds says $38K, this guy thinks $58K.
- What is the stock bhp rating? (a couple more than my 100Q, huh.)
- V8 or 20V200, V8 or 20V200, V8 or 20V200??? Any big reasons to go for one Q
over the other?
*If* I do a look-over and test drive, my next step will be a pre-purchase
inspection at the local Audi dealer. Thanks much in advance for any advice
