Purchasing a 200..
I am seriously considering purchasing a 200 Quattro - I would trade
in my 100Q and (probably) pay a difference... This leads me to a number of
1. What can I get for my 1990 100Q? It has ~68k mi on it, lago blue
paint, cold weather package, CD player/changer/aftermarket stereo, I just had
a 60k mi service ( at 65k mi.. :) and had the hydraulic pump replaced, all
the belts done..etc.
2. I am looking at an 89 200Q with 47k mi. It has all the options, it
looks like it is in fair condidition. The only problem is the paint-it has
red paint that is slightly faded. It has the Audi/Bose stereo, the cold
weather package, and the usual 200-power everything. They are asking $11.9k,
it seems a little low compared to the other cars, but that may be due to the
paint..? How does this price compare? I was going to offer 9.5k, and go up to
11k if I had to.
The other car I am looking at is a 90 200q, with 57k mi. Is has
all the options, and is in better condition. The paint is a black/metallic
graphite color that is much much better than the red. It has the Audi Bose
stereo with a 10-disc changer in the trunk. They are askin $15.9k for it, and
that seems a little high compared to the 89. I offered $13k for it, but he
said he wouldn't go below $14.5k...( he tried to tell me the retail was $18k,
and I was getting a good deal..I had the June blue-book, and it said the
retail was ~16k...)
3. If I did go ahead and get the 89, is there anything I can do to
make the paint look bettter? Could I use some abrasive car polish and fix it
up, or would I be stuck with crummy paint?
Thanks in advance for any commments, suggestions, hints tips tricks whatever!!
