Price, 90 Quattro -1988

Thanks to all of you for usefull information re buying an 88 90 Q.
I made a confusion with miles and dollars since I live in Canada but I
mileage from 139,000 km to aprox 85,000 miles and actual price is $6,400
what makes about $4700 US, with tax around $5,000 US. The car is sold by a
who purchsed the car from its first owner. He did some work on the front end
and he is truying to sell it again. Audi is not a very popular car in
Canada. There is
two categories of people who drive this car. New Audis are driven by
wealthier people, 
while old ones are owned mostly by European immigrants (I am one of them).
Dealer prices
in Canada seem to be similar to those in US. Example: 87 4000S (not a
quattro) with 130k km
in goood shape with even some 6 month warranty is priced $4900 Canadian
(about $3,600 US).  

I would be grateful for any other coments.

Thank you.
