Bought my 91 in June of 99 with 99k miles. Opal Mica, grey sport.
Currently 142k, pulsation free UFOs, and original clutch. Previous owner
had t-belt go at 85k. Rebuild was monkey-lad at its best, at a dealer
(supposedly) no less. Never has run right. Much improved with proper cam
timing when I did a t-belt job at 130k or so (thanks V8 list!). Still has a
leaky ring or nicked valve... very uneven firing pulses when lugged. 92 4.2
donor car in the wings.
PS There's a cyclamen/grey one in FL for sale right now that was sold/bought
here (COS) and migrated SE. Been treated to a lot of TLC by a former
factory trained Audi tech who really appreciates the "ur" cars. I think it
has about the same miles as mine.
