can audis/vws take v.high mileage??
I'm looking at a couple of audi 80 sports (UK) - (4000 1.8injection
in the US i think). (also same engine in 1.8 8valve golf/jetta)
The cars are both 86, with v. little rust.
one has been owned for last 7 yrs by a lady who's covered most
of the 190k miles- probablly motorway miles . - It also has been
fairly trouble free.
the other has also had only 2 owners and done 200k miles and has been
both obviously have FSH (non dealer for several yrs)
The lady is asking 800 GBP but has had little interest because of the
The 200k is asking 650 GBP.
Will these engines take much more mieage- or am i asking for trouble?
(I am fairly good with DIY and have fixed clutches etc. but am not
too confidet to mess with engine rebuild)
TSR performance in the UK offer rebuild for ~600 GBP (without head)
should I try negotiating with this figure in mind ? assuming that the
engine will die soon.
I also only need the car for 4 mnths over the summer.
What do u think? what are they worth / should I offer??
Your opinions are much appreciated.
