Hi folks -
Just joined and didn't see anything in the archive on this (forgive me if
I missed it).
I'm looking at buying a mid-80s quattro and was hoping someone could give
me some tips on what to look for and what to avoid as I know little about
Audis. The car won't be a daily driver and will be cheap (sub-$1000). I'm
looking for something to use as a performance TSD rally car. Can't take
any more risks with my other AWD car.
I've talked with a fellow who has an `86 4000 for sale, specifically.
>From our phone conversation, it has an electrical problem (relatively
minor - left side parking lights and the speedometer light don't work),
needs front struts, has an occasional skip in the power steering pump,
needs a heavy hand to get the heater to work and has only one
malfunctioning door and window. Rust is limited to a door, a quarter
panel and the driver side A pillar, according to my notes.
Is there a web site with info on older quattro's?
