Why are 200q20v's worthless?

It's pretty much like my, and your previous, SHO [although a low miles 89 sold for $11k-to a zero feedback Canadian, smells a bit funny]. I've got a Colnago bicycle that's worth more than either the 200 or the SHO and it weighs less than a wheel.....I think that's funny!!

You got the suspension done...and like it I take it. It is a good combination isn't it? What'd you do about front neg camber? FWIW, I do like the OE wheel, like to find a set of those rare 16x8 BBS's though.

i was perusing the various audi classsifieds  wow, how depressing. it kills me. it's not like the 200 is only worth it's engine. throw 
on some decent struts, springs and some larger/wider rims with good tires 
- and go hit the twisties! 

with ian's IA3+ ECU (280HP), koni, H&R, 034 billet bypass, 17" A4 
rims and kuhmo escta SPT tires - i just ATTACKED skyline blvd in 
oakland, ca. The Blue Bastard corners like a mofo and once on boost - it's more exhilarating than a friggen rollercoaster ;-) 

it's amazing what people view as "desirable". while our cars are worth a pack of chewing gum, 1991-1994 BMW M5 are holding steady.and you have people ripping out the 3B to put in a URQ, coupe quattro or 4000Q. 

oh well, i'm not planning on selling and don't have buyer's remorse (although i wish i bought that clean 200q20v with 91k in LA - but it wasn't available when i was looking). 

it's just a trip. i could see lackluster resale if the thing was a gutless crap can. but with minimal mods - you have a low 14 second car with AWD and finish level of a damn S-Class Mercedes! 

okay - off soapbox ;-)
