Default Newbie Question

Hi I am thinking of purchasing a 1997 Audi A4 1.8t automatic. Really low miles and good condition and good price so thats why I think I am going to get it.

I was thinking of doing minimal mods to make the car look good and sound good - body kit, intake, chip, and exhaust. Would those give me just as much hp gain as a manual? Roughly how much hp gain will it give the car?

The car is not tiptronic, it is worth it? (not looking to race etc, just make it look and sound awesome)

The manual doesnt have any more horses than the automatic, you can just access the power earlier. For sounding better, get a different exhaust and intake. The chip is mainly for performance gains and wont alter the sound as much as the exhaust will. Hard to say if the car is worth it since you didn't list the price. hope this helps
