Hello; I expect to complete the purchase of a 1991 Audi 200 Quattro wagon this week. I was wondering if anyone can tell me what would be the critical items to service/inspect at 116,000 miles (current mileage)? I drove the car about 10 miles at pretty high speed; boost hit 1.8, brakes feel good, steers straight (very light steering but I think that has been complained about before on Audi's by car magazines), interior in nice shape. Paint covers the car but the car needs paint to look real nice; no rust. All of the metal hydraulic lines just recently replaced, power steering pump; looks real new in the engine compartment in that area. The original steering rack is in the car.
I do intend to take the car to an experienced Audi mechanic; any words of wisdom for me?
Also, performance; this car has a TAP chip installed; what else can be done to increase power without spending major bucks? Can the boost be increased a bit without hurting the engine?
Recommendation of place to buy lower springs and shocks? I am putting H & R springs on my 911; use those for the Audi, too? Bilstein heavy duty or Bilstein sport shocks? What about wheel size; the stock BBS wheels are scuffed but serviceable but I expect I'll switch to 16 or 17" rims when the current tires wear out; recommenations?
Last for now; where does a person purchase euro headlamps to completely replace the stock units? I thought the lights on my benz were bad; they are great compared to the audi!
Thanks for taking the time to help me out.
