'86 CGT f/s in the Netherlands

Hi all,

I promised to post this to the list, maybe there are more Dutch Audi-nuts

f/s '86 Coupe GT, light blue metallic. Exc. condition overall, few rust
spots inside door shuts. Towbar fitted, decent aftermarket 15" alloys, OE
tinted taillights and reflector panel. Original Dutch-market car. New test,
Dfl 3000.

Dutch verson follows:

(Even in het Nederlands: Coupe GT '86, Nederlandse auto. Lichtblauw
metallic, trekhaak, nette 15" LM-velgen, origineel uitgevoerd met zwarte
achterlichten. Paar kleine roestplekjes in deuropeningen, verder mooi.
Nieuwe APK, prijs f 3000,-.)

Also saw an S6 plus Avant (with the V8!) on the road today. Not many of 'em
around, so it could be the same one I saw at the importer's used-car show
last year. It was at least the same dark blue metallic in colour.

Drove another TT (180 hp FWD) yesterday and was once more impressed by the
roadholding and speed (which you only notice when you look at the speedo),
the quality and design of the interior and the looks. I'm still very
disappointed by the noise- there's no comparing the 1.8T to the I-5. Thanks
to decent sound-insulation, you won't even hear the turbo whine. Still
waiting impatiently for the quattro, to finally be able to exploit all that

Another Audi tidbit- I was given a brochure for the new A3 quattro
recently, and tried to open it. That turned out a little hard to do because
of a nice gimmick: They'd printed a bit of pavement on one page, and a tyre
track on the other, and had used glue (as on the flaps of re-sealable
envelopes) to glue them together to advertise the quattro advantage. Great
idea, nicely executed.
