I need to reduce my car collection, so I am selling my 5ktq. I use this car every day to commute, and it is a great running vehicle. Mechanically it is very solid. The interior is black/gray sport seats that are in very good condition. The exterior is black metallic, and the clearcoat is peeling on the hood, roof, and trunk lid. The car has some random dings and dents, but no huge rust spots or serious damage. The engine is chipped with a QLCC chip, and has a 1.9 bar wastegate spring.(I also made the wastegate adjustable) The car also has a bypass valve installed in the intake system, to maintain boost during shifts. It also has slotted rotors and new pads, along with braided stainless brake lines. It has the 100 eurolights, properly wired and relayed. Like all my Audis, I converted this car to studs and lugnuts, instead of the original wheel bolts. 220k miles. This car started great all winter, and the trans and clutch are nice and smooth. The diff locks work great.
The car comes with 10-spoke wheels off a 1992 100cs, and nice all-seasons with ~85% tread remaining. The exhaust is in good condition, and it has a polished stainless muffler with dual DTM tips. The power steering rack and alternator were replaced with new units ~3 years ago. The power steering pump was replaced with a rebuilt unit 2 years ago. The radiator was new 2 years ago. The car has a CD player head unit that was new 2 months ago. The sunroof flips up fine, but does not slide back. One of the outside door handles is broken, and one of the lock knobs doesn't work. The car has a vacuum leak somewhere at the rear of the engine that likes to make noise when the car is warm. It's been this way for 2 years, and I haven't been motivated enough to find it. The temp gauge in the dash does not work. I've replaced the sensor, and verified the temperature manually, so I'm thinking it's the gauge itself. The car does NOT leak any kind of fluid. The car does NOT burn oil. It
is a great runner, and has been quite reliable for me. It could just use a little tinkering with things like door handles, etc. For a couple bucks more, I'll include the original Fuchs wheels that came with the car, and a good set of Blizzaks. I have a feeling that this car will sell quickly, so if you're interested, contact me ASAP. Come check it out and drive it home.
