Default New member, looking at a v8! (pics of interesting stuff inside)

Hello guys, I come to you from the nissan/bmw realm with some questions.

First, to provoke some responses, a pic of my cars (I need more posts to attach pictures I guess. replace the XX with "tt" and you'll see them.)



557 RWHP, 2.0 turbo. all hand built.

And next, my BMW. As far as anyone knows, the only one of it's kind (with this type of paint done properly) in the world.

And now that you've forgiven me for not knowing exactly what to search for (being an utter audi noob) herein lies my question.

I spotted a 100/200 sedan for sale, quattro, with an autotragic and 155k miles. I called the guy, and he says it runs fabulously, its only problem being a power steering leak.

I've seen inside the car (all cars here in juneau, alaska are unlocked) and it's very clean inside. has the onboard phone and everything. so far as I can tell, everything that can work without the ignition key, works. power seats, parking lights, etc.

No rust that I can see, either on the body, no bubbles in the paint (Fading on the trunk) and no rust underneath.


I popped the hood, and she's got a v8! I'm guessing the 3.6.


What should I look out for when test driving the car? I know old audis are notorious for electrical hiccups, but will these be honest to god concerns? the car will only be driven occasionally (3-4 times a week) and I am on a very limited budget of 1600 overall. no real commuting, just poking about around city, and on the 55mph highway across town if necessary.

I can probably get the car for 1100.

some pictures (sorry about the quality) it looks much better in person. This isn't a fixer-upper (though it might be if I fall in love with it and drag it back down to arizona) and I need something that I won't have to wrench on myself, as all my wrenches are 3000 miles away.

Sounds Like a really nice deal. Love the other case btw. I would try posting this in the classic audi section. This section is for A8s which started in 97 and most people in this section won't have too much info for you. Classic Audi does cover this type of car.
