Thinking of purchasing
I'm thinking of purchasing a 1990 80 from a individual in Miami, FL for
my fiance' to replace her current car. I have a few questions...
1st... the car has 52k miles, which is very low for a 8 year old car.
Any way to find out if the inst. cluster has been replaced or anything?
2nd.. It is owned by the manager of a pain & body shop, so obviously I'm
going to have to see if it's been involved in a major collision. Any
services that anyone knows of to find out if it's ever been totaled? I
know this has been asked previously, but I don't rememeber seeing the
3rd.. He's asking $4000/obo. This seems low....especially for a 52k
mile car. I am thinking about offering him $3500 and see how this
goes. Would I be crazy not to buy it at this price if the odeometer
checks out and the body is fairly straight?
I know this car isn't a quattro, but that's ok. If I was buying another
Audi for myself, it would certainly be one now that I've dealt with my
non-Q A4 for a while. But for her, a non-Q automatic sounds just
Also, what are some major problems with the 1990 80's that I should
check for before I hand over the cash?
