****BOUGHT!Found another Audi what do you guys think about this one, 2001 Audi A4 1.8tqm silver sports package heated seats and 52,000 miles for $11000 Private seller. I already checked the car out, it has two dents one on the passenger side and one in the rear by the trunk. The top part of the trunk had a scratch that was kind of long, She had alot of maintenance records done buy Audi. Needs new tiers < First thing I'm doing is suspension and rims.... Only has one key which the lock unlock don't work maybe needs new battery and the key part fall off the remote easily. IS THIS ONE WORTH IT?....some one say yes so i can SNAGG IT

Carfax had nothing on it besides that they sold it in 10/17/2000....

Shipping is about $700.

I was going to buy but the funds are not available right now for a 2nd B5...

Engine has less than 10k on a fresh audi install. Car looks even cleaner than the one I bought. The price is a steal AND it has the sport package/celebration wheels. 2001.5 170hp

Just trying to help out!! [az]

My 2001.5 has a red mark on the T. The AWM is a great motor. 2001-2001.5 have the red flag on the T. I still have my 17" celebration wheels for winter and they are super clean but bend pretty easy. I already went through 2 of them.

pick up a key off ebay, get it cut at a VW dealership and program it yourself.

Went to radioshack and got some batteries for the remote and it works now...
going to the Pomona car swap met Sunday and I remember I saw a guy with a bunch of Audi/VW switchblade keys so im just going to get the key holder and switch out the key, going with uncle...he loves the old school VW bus/trucks so he likes to go find original stuff.

First found problem..

hmmm steering wheel wiggles when driving, i heard a little clunk don't remember when think i hit a bump in the road any ideas hope its not control arms, just an alignment needed?

how long do the control arms last again?

Sounds like you need either a tie rod end or at least one control arm. When the suspension is if full working order it is very quiet. Any clunks, pops, or creaks indicate a bad joint somewhere.
