I am the 3rd owner of the car. The car was originally a Canadian model. The car was left stock by the original owner and dealer maintained. All maintenance by the original owner was documented by the dealer in the section provided in the owners manual. The car was imported in 2001 by the 2nd owner J. S. Under his ownership car was modified and maintained by a local well known audi mechanic (Keith @ Athol Motors 716-824-2276). I bought the car locally in 2006.

My plan for the car after purchase was to completely sort out the car and replace everything worn. I bought the car to drive daily so it had to be reliable. Items that had a chance to leave the car inoperable/stranded were of particular importance since I would be taking it on frequent on long drives downstate. I researched heavily on enthusiast forums on what items were prone to failure that would leave the car inoperable. I quickly found that failures of the crank position sensor and fuel pump were common occurrences with the mileage I had on the car. Both were replaced along with many other wear items.

I have recently had the car off the road to repair the front CV boots. One of the outer boots had a small tear so I decided to replace all boots before any of them failed. I also decided to replace all wear items in the front suspension while I was servicing the car. The car is now completely sorted and ready to go anywhere. 

I have the carfax report and it has no reported incidents. The title is clean with no leins.

The paint is clean and glossy, the car was well cared for and garaged for most of its life. It does have small imperfections that I have documented in the pictures. 

The car averages around 18 mpg in the city, I recently got 26 mpg on a trip downstate. 

Heat works great, both heated seats work great. The previous owner replaced many of the A/C components, but its getting to the point where it needs a recharge but it still blows cold.

Every component on the car is in working order except the outside temperature sensor. The screen does not light up and it needs a sensor. I bought a new sensor but I have not installed it. If you can live without knowing how warm/cold it is outside this wont bother you much. Also the transmission shifts hard into first gear randomly particularly in colder weather. It does not grind and it always goes into gear. It has been this way since I bought the car and I have put over 30,000 miles on it without it getting worse. It also has a quarter size crack in the windshield on the lower passenger side. It has been there since the winter and has not grown so I have not replaced the windshield. If something else is broken on the car I am not aware of it, and I am pretty attentive to the details of the car.
