*If* there are no other quirks...  but old Audis are filled with them.

For reference, I paid $2300 for my '90 V8 converted to a 5-speed. It
had a lot of nice mods (suspension, exhaust, seats, lights). It needed
a steering rack leak fixed (with a new rack). I haven't driven it much,
but I'm sure it'll need more fixin', but one fix at a time.
