Re: VW Quantum Syncro

Whoooaaa there.  That's aweful steep for a Quantum Synchro.  PERFECT ones
with low miles go for around $4k.  You should be able to get down around
$3000 at least.  If not, shop around.  The Synchros are subject to the
same woes as the 4kq's - control arm bushings, exhaust leaks, etc.  Good
car though.  I've found '86s in good shape for $2200 on a couple of
occasions.  I'd definitely try to talk them way down.  If you want it, why
not try that trick some of the guys suggested a while back - take a money
order (?) for the amount you want to pay in and give it to the
dealer...I'm gonna mess this up - any of you that have done this want to
explain how it works again?  My only quam would be that $4k is too much.
