1990 Audi V8 3.6L Quattro (AWD) Approx 150k
Loaded - all electric windows doors sunroof HVAC Heated seats (ALL SEATS HEATED EVEN REAR) Also has air vents in rear for temp.
Has original bose components still in it with a dealer upgrade Blaupunkt Munchen RDM and comes with an additional Tokyo Blaupunkt RDM CD Player. Radio crackles when turned up loud, not sure what is the issue.
Has phone in console, works! Also will come with my XM Satelite Radio (Mobile) unit with all the household goodies and about 1 month free service left on it.
Stock wheels with Brand new winter tires Euro fogs on bumper, two antenna's (one embedded in front windshield) Both front seats are full electric, All dash guages work and the electronic message board works as well with all pixels present.
GOOD NEWS - Just had over $1800 of work through Audi recommended shop (RPM in Lorton) Minor Vacumn lines and Vacumn testing performed, front and rear brake pads, transmission fush filter and fluids. Recent Sparkplugs, Religious oil changes ever 3k, K&N Performance Filter, ECU is chipped (approx 33hp increase)Timing belt service at 120k by dealer. Interior leather nice with no rips or tears except one seam on ass part of drivers side. You have the option to turn on or off the anti-lock braking system.
BAD NEWS - Power steering system has a very slow leak somewhere. I have been driving this now for over a year without any loss in power steering and VERY min. fuid loss. Passenger side CV boot both inner and outer are open (may be fixed this weekend just noticed this when put tires on) Headliner was down in the rear at one point I did my best to glue it back up, not the prettiest but good to go. Front brake pad sensors wire are not connected so the message board shows the brake pad pic (you can turn this off anytime with a push of a button) Paint is fair, slight damage to driver rear fender area, very slight, not really noticeable, Exhaust leak fixed by Mineke month ago. (Actually makes the car sound super mean!) Update, let the wife use the car one day and it came back with a broken turn signal lense on front and slight scratches..she cant explain why when or how, figures.
Conclusion - I drive this beast daily, I am getting a average of 14-17mpg (The car tells you this among other information as well) fill up is around $40 with $3 gallon prices...it is fast, it stops on a dime with engine braking assistance automatically, acceleration can put you in your seat and 120mph feels like 80mph, smooth its a large sedan with a sports car under the hood. sticks to the road. I have title in hand and for the right offer I am willing to talk.
This was a flagship Audi in 1990 and is the first V8 (now A8) model Audi offered in America. This is the FIRST (1st) rear of the AUDI V8 QUATTRO. Pretty Rare in this area.
In 1992 they went to the 4.2L engine but with the chip in mine I have the same hp.
$1800 pretty firm......(More pics available per request)
Credit cards, cash and paypal or any combination of these is acceptable.
Possible trades welcome.
