Default audi delema



i have an audi right now it is a 1990 a8 quattro. this is the one with a v8. my question being is that this car has 110,000 miles on it and the transmission went out. i called audi and they said it would be 6500 to fix. then a neighbor, macanic, gave me a name of a friend of his. i called the shop and they said they could rebuild it for around 1800 and if it was real bad like a cracked or broken case it would be 2200. does this sound about right? also i am worried that if i fix it i might just have more problems with it. do you guys think i will. also if any one is intrested in taking it off my hands fell free to let me know. i will give you the name of the shop. they said it would come with a 3 yr. warrenty. </P>


what do you guys think?</P>

Hi, it s me again ;-).</P>


A guy in Alberta wanted to buy mine but i asked to much, 1500$, so i lost the client ;-(. I dont have his email anymore.</P>


Hegot his tranny rebuilted and putted it back for 2800$ total , + taxes i guess.</P>


Add 1200$ to that 2800$ and you get another V8 100.000km on it... and ready for another 200.000km</P>


It really depends how much you in love with your Audi V8.</P>

Buy a V8 broken mmmmmm not a good idea unless it s almost free.</P>


You engaged of hight cost car ....</P>


I did it too, but i only wanted the engiene for a swap. There is the bargain. If you buy it to fix it ouffff ohhh my ask help to god and the Banks.</P>


Those tranny are very hard to find and expenssive to rebuilt.</P>


1800$ it s US $ and 2800 is cdn$ and far away with no specialist on Audi...</P>


But here my friend manager do the job for 2200 to 2500$cdn depends of tranny price.</P>


If i want a V8 Audi i ll buy it well maintain and very good working... never broken even almost ree. The total cost to fix them is to hight and ll overpass the cost of a good working. The only reason to fit a V8 its because you own it for a while and you love it, unless i would forget it.</P>


I bought used bad working Audis cause i tought i ll save money , and rebuilt them and ooooo myyyy it cost more than buy a good working one</P>


It s not GM cars , the V8 Audi 1991 was 70.000$ canadian$ new</P>


So buy a used tranny , put it there (not complicated but it takes time) and enjoy the V8.</P>


All parts left l be send to my friend manager at German garage. It ll happen before the summer. I need to clean the garage so if you want bargain its time, after i ll enjoy my V8 swap on my 90Q.</P>


It s 230cdn$ to send the tranny across the Canada so to your town ll be less. I can calculate it for you.</P>


Tell me your box or 'code postale' to tell whre you are to get estimation price for shipping.</P>


Say 650$ US and its yours. I ll not get lower now. </P>
