is behind me on these crazy ideas) and I'm hoping the list can talk
some sense into me. Or confirm I'm not crazy. Or, probably, both.
In a nutshell, we're thinking of replacing our A4 with an older Audi
-- probably something along the lines of a five-cylinder S6, or
perhaps even a 90 quattro. Our A4 (a 1999.5 1.8T five-speed Avant)
replaced a 1995 90, and after a few years of ownership we can't help
but think in some ways the A4 was a downgrade.
The A4 has a lot going for it, but it's also been the most
troublesome Audi of the three we've owned. Additionally -- and more
importantly, to my wife especially -- the A4 doesn't have the old
German car feel that it'll last forever. Our older Audis had a very
different, more solid feel on the road, and also felt like they were
built to survive anything short of a direct nuclear strike.
Anyway, any thoughts/input/etc. on this issue would be appreciated. I
can't help but think that buying a car that old (even if we find one
in spectacular condition) is a bad idea in a lot of ways, but man, I
miss my old Audis.
