Re: 1984 URQ, not exactly what I was expecting...

Sorry to have to say this but I agree...

4 disc/pads
oil cooler hoses
cam belt
fuel tank
resealed windscreen

not to mention replacing the BBS split rims which had been refurbed to 2mm

it just all adds up, and as my wife says 'its the last time you get
permission to buy a car on your own', then I remind her that had I bought
the Aston V8, the bills would have been even bigger. But, really good luck
to you. You'll have great fun, fixing and then driving. Its all part of the
Audi challenge.
