Selling my daily Audi 90 quattro 5 spd since I can not afford having two cars on my insurance. The car is not in too good of shape as far as the body goes but it sure as hell is a very strong running car. Just recently passed NJ state inspection/emissions with flying colors so that gives testament to how well the car runs. It drives and handles very well. No vibrations, no rattles in the interior. There is about 173k on the odo but it stopped working a few months ago so it should be around 175k. The speedo works no problem as does the RPM's. The car shifts very smoothly and does not grind gears what so ever. The locking rear diff works. The clutch is fairly new as are the new strut/shock insurts. The car feels very planted and solid especially at highway speeds. I drive it 50 miles a day back and forth to school without any issues.
If you can tell, the interior is green since this was a special edition car back in the day and was made specifically like this by Audi of North America for one of the top Audi salesmen at the time. Very rare color combo. The front driver seat has two small rips about 2 inches in length but other than that, the rest is in very good shape.
The car when cold will crank over but will die quickly and takes another try to get it started but will fire up right away. You do not have to sit there and crank. Another thing, the ABS speed sensor needs replacing and pulsates when slowly rolling to a stop. New pads and rotors will be needed soon so I suggest fixing the ABS sensor while down there. Also needs a new valve cover gasket. A/C does not work.
I just recently had a tune up done to it which involved:
-New Plug Wires
-New Distributor and Rotor
-New Alternator Belt
-New Catylitic Converter
-New Air Filter
-Mobil 1 Oil and Mann Filter
-New Intake Boot from Dealer since the old was torn and had a vacuum leak.
-Replaced ISV with a working unit from a junked 80.
- New Duralast Battery
- Replaced Master and Slave Cylinders with used units off junked 80.
-New Accesory Belt to Waterpump
The wheels are 15x7 Compomotives the last owner had imported from the UK. I do not know the model name but they do come with all four center caps. The tires are 205/50/15 Pirelli P700 and have about 75% tread life still on them.
I am looking for about $900 or any reasonable offer. I am located in North Jersey, Bergen County area. PM me or email me at demetrixanthos at yahoo.com for any questions or details on the car.
Here are a few pictures of the car and I tried to take as many pictures of the problem areas as possible. The car is not a looker but it will make a very good winter beater/daily driver.
