Ok.. Maybe I can find an Audi air conditioning system (ECC) in a
salvage yard - we've got one big and good here in Norway that has only
good VW and Audi parts. I don't want to buy a new car - my car is so
great for its age that I will have a hard time finding a car that is
as good as this one. This is the car: 89 Audi 100 2.3E with power
"everything" except seats, very good stereo, almost all other
equipment except A/C. The paint is orginal, but without scratches and
dents. I have installed all-red (V8-like) taillights and white front
turn lights. Used two days to clean the car inside and outside
(although it wasn't dirty when I got it), and the result was
incredible. Pictures soon to come - I just need to get my hands on an
digital camera. The car is registered on my father, but I use it most
of the time. It is his 4th Audi.  Oh yeah - the price: $13000 (normal
here in Norway) A new A6 2.8 Q Tiptronic costs $85000 - crazy!

BTW: My mom wants to sell her Toyota Celica and buy an Audi Quattro.
What are important to check on a used Audi 100 from about 93? I will
probably buy her a car with the 2.5 TDi engine or the 2.8 V6.
