We have to make sure people know that later '83s had the  better wiring 
harness with underhood fuseboxes.
Starting VIN ~750 it was a  mid 1983 model change.
I used to have one of those '83s and it was a great  car, no problems at all 
with wiring.
Really, only the cars with Rabbit  (underdash) fuseboxes were nightmareish.

Obviously both of the cars on  ebay are the early cars.. and therefore should 
be approached with  caution.

Hope this helps.

1982 Audi Ur-quattro (50,000 mi) new  project with Rabbit fusebox
1983 Audi Ur-quattro (305,000 km) SOLD with  proper fusebox
1985 Audi Ur-quattro (203,000 km) Euro spec. import mit 3B  ;o) 
1987 Audi 4000s quattro (195,000 km) winter  car

FWIW- My URQ # 610 (which is now a donor car) had the later suspension and  
fuse box, and my current car #472 does not.
