I thought Dae Dae had a BMW? No matter, welcome to AZ. I am sure if you post it in the for sale forums(Granted if/when you are able to) you will generate interest including some suggestions. I am sure you have also put it up on Craigslist etc. ?

it can get a bit tricky finding the right B5 especially since
not everyone takes care of theirs as well as most of us enthusiasts.

If i were you i would sell the Jeep and then get into a B5. It will be a lot easier than finding someone with a B5 that is willing to trade. Thats a nice Jeep, the founds you get for it should easily pay for a B5. Depending on exactly what you are looking for, a nice B5 can be had for around 4 grand in todays market. Sometimes even cheaper if your willing to get your hands dirty and fix it up yourself.

well i think ill b picking up this over the weekend for a cool grand! might not be a 1.8t but i can pick this up and take my time selling the jeep then take my funds from it and fix this and drop a superchargerr on it and be happy! then turn around and flip this and make about 5 to 6k back and get what i really want maybe? we'll jus have to see how much i like it and how much fun it is with the supercharger..

If you have a S/C 2.8 and you sell it for a chipped 1.8T, you WILL regret it lol. Thats a good find other than it being tiptronic, Congrats!

you do realize your buying a tiptronic(shitbox) with problems right. i know alot of vw/audi techs and they say if the trans slips at all run. your gonna be spending that 3k supercharger fund on a new trans or getting stuck with that car when u try to sell it after the tranny goes. just think it over. heres a thread from a local forum from yesterday about the tiptronic. and if you really beleive this guy about those two things being the trans problem and him just taking the 3-4k loss on not getting them fixed then go 4 it.

Even if that tranny is toast, for 1500 your not gonna die. There is even a full DIY on rebuilding those tips. I believe it was on the transmission from a porsche, but they are the same basic thing.

if the 1.8t and 2.8 trans are anything alike, expect to pay anywhere around $4000 - $6500 for a new one..( unless you replace it yourself ) I know this cuz I had to have mine replaced a year and 3 months ago. Once it slips all hell breaks out inside the slushbox.

Check that out if you do happen to get the car. It probably won't be the same exact problem, but atleast its an idea of what your up against. GL with the car. I have a v6 and it runs great. Last owner didn't really take care of it much, so it was not to hot when i got it, but as of today, somewhere around 210K on it, it shows no signs of quiting right now. [up]

If it's really toast you can always go 5 speed for a decent price if you're willing to do the work. 1500 isn't too bad if that's the only thing wrong with it. I traded a 94 Integra for my 2001 A4 (in running condition) so you shouldnt have a problem trading your jeep.

I work on my car myself and I did $2000 in maintenance before I even considered installing the supercharger...

Don't buy the car you linked. It looks like it has a rattle canned paint job plus transmission problems... It's worth $200

Edmunds True Market Value report says the Renegade is worth about 4300 right now. The report usually is to let people know what they actually sell for.

I am a car sales man here at the shop........ I was only trying to make the sale easier for you but apparently that was rude........ KBB and NADA are way way off on car values. I WAS NOT trying to make you look bad I WAS trying to help. You say "desperately trying to get into a B5" but you are not going to sell the renegade if you price it too high. I did the market value using your zip code for hollywood, MD and it was with in $100, I added some features that I assumed it would have and it went up 200. Basically the actual private party sale value of a 2002 high mileage Jeep Liberty is $4500 IF it's 4x4. That means list it for 5 and take the best offer.

If you are unwilling to take advice, occasional criticism, or from some members out right flaming then you really do not belong here. Sometimes the facts hurt and the truth is car values right now are terrible. Car sales is still a really hard business to be in right now and that is why our shop quit buying. We focused back on car repair primarily and I moved from sales to parts.

its not my fault that some people are not very knowledgeable about somethings jus because hes a senior member on here doesnt mean he knows all about everything ... im not saying he doesnt know or isnt knowledgable about audis but its jus not cool for him to tell me i dont know about something that i am more than knowledgeable about im sorry to somebody5788 but it kinda pisses me off that people keep telling me my jeep isnt worth what the blue book says and thats BS... but anyway i jus want everyone to be happy and nice and when you try to tell me basically that im a moron and dunno what im talking about thats jus not cool for a senior member to do in my eyes exspecailly since im a noob that doesnt make this site look to promising when i do really need help...

thats more understandable... but that is what i have always went by as a reference because thats what someone will be able to get from the bank to pay for it if they were trying to buy it from me... like i said in my ad its ore than fair priced if you try to go buy one comperable at a dealer near here where i live you will be paying 7to 10 gs for it and some arent even as nice and claen as mine

The problem with an Audi is unless you have 1k on the side at all times for unexpected repairs you will end up not being able to drive it or it will just become poor condition. They are by no means low maintenance.

Also just letting you know if you don't have the time, money, or a heated garage you don't want to supercharge a 2.8 lol. They require lots of tinkering... mine still doesn't run right, it's getting there but it's not there yet.

And I know how it is having that feeling that your car is worth more. I wouldn't take less then $8000 for my car and it's so not worth that lol. I've also got about $4000 in mods/maintinance over 2.5 years granted $2000 is the suspension and supercharger. But $5000 is a fair asking price. You will have to entertain offers but you don't have to take less then that. And this is due to the work you have put into it.

and i agree i have been reading and reasearching for almost a month about these audis and i understand that its not gunna be fun all the time but im pretty knowledgeable in the mechanical field as i am a heavy truck/equipment mech by trade and i have access to a shop with a lift and all jus not all the time and i dont have all that much time to do work but either way i should save quite a bit on labor jus hav to spend on parts mostly

and as for my jeep 5k is what in reality is what i want to take may go alittle lower but as you know you have to start high with that obo price and let them talk you down...

I was going to comment on the paint job too. If you want to make some money you could pick the car up and part it. You can get at least 1500 from selling parts EASY from that car. But from what I have seen expect to spend at least 2k for a decent A4, plus 1k in maintenance in the first year or two so that it is running right.

If you have time/space part it until the car is as stripped as possible, lots of things you can sell. Heads, brake system, steering, alternator, ac condenser, electron controls inside, trim, seats, body panels (cheap even though they have shitty paint), wheels, etc. I bought a WAYYY shittier 12v v6 for cheap and made about 1200 off it but thats because I had to get rid of it early and still got a transmission, and a bunch of other things from it for my build.

the Jeep looks nice. I wouldn't think a direct swap would be too hard to pull off... for a clean B5 none the less.

I don't want to rain on your parade but i see a baby seat in the back of it and i think you might be making the wrong choice. We bought our B5 with a baby on the way and now i really wish it was an SUV of some kind. Bending over to strap my daughter in kills my back. The other down side is that i cant ride passenger when we take the car places b/c i cant put the seat back far enough to fit... This means i drive where ever we take it... normally i prefer this but on longer trips when you would like to change and let the wife drive its just not an option. Then theres the added bonus of listening to her gripe about not being able to recline the chair... etc.

...if you have a friend with a B5 or an AZer near by, you might want to see if they will let you throw the car seat in the back and try everything on for size before you make your move.

otherwise, i totally love the car, its fun to drive, handles well, easy to work on... etc.

Just a warning. [up]

lol thanks for the heads up and yes i have a 19 mo old daughter ... but the way i see it she will b old enough soon that she will get into one of those booster seats and get out of that car seat.. none the less anything has to be better than my wifes 2dr accord!! i jus really want something fun to drive that also doubles as a family car wen i need one and my wife can drive in the snow and not have to whine that her fwd accord is stuck on her way home from work....

im supposed to pick that 30v up for a grand.. so i dunno what i should do jus buy it and part it or jus not worry about it?

I really would avoid the blue one man. It's a nightmare waiting to happen. This is coming from a person with a shop too so... ya... and plus we specialize in Audi/VW. I'd look for a 90-100k mile one in the $4000 range and 00-01. Just that the blue one is very obviously a repaint and a very bad repaint at that. Quite literally with needing a transmission it is only worth $200 in that condition. If you got it for $500 and just parted it out you could make some profit but only because the shell is worth 200 ish in metal.

Also the 2000-2001 body style has car seat hooks I believe

and a normal car seat is quite hard to fit, it fits, but it's not comfy for the passenger lol

How the hell do you even fit a car seat in that?! Talk about a PITA to get your kid in the car. My buddy has a 4 cyl 2003 Accord Coupe, it's a PITA for me to get into the back because the seats don't go forward far enough and nothing to grab onto. But if you do decide to part that car, it gives you buffer time to let your kid get out of a full car seat [;)]

a manual quattro in the snow is one of the easiest/safest cars to drive. Teach her to downshift so you don't depend on ABS as much when coming to stops and then just going around corners or a straight line it's now worse then a Tip.

And if you still don't like the idea of cornering then get a 4:1 dif mod lol. While it's awesome for those of us that want to go drifting/sliding around or just autocross it is also better for over all control. I took a snow covered road 90* turn at 30mph lol no real loss of traction either. My buddies S4 w/ Blizzaks can't do that ;)

Daedaestoy let me know if you get the audi and still need the tranny am also from MD and I know a guy that knows a guy that has alot of b5 trannies of when he used to work for audi back in the day
And also it's easy to find b5 here in Maryland :)

I havent really been able to find much either. i guess im just not searching the right things? im from MD too, i live up in Damascus (although not right now because im at school down at Virginia Tech). the best i can find is a 2001 1.8tM with 113k miles and some work already done to it for $5500. i like the offer but i really want a quattro so i dunno what to do there.

its a nice car if daedaestoy would like to take a look at it. http://baltimore.craigslist.org/cto/2168979590.html

Hey Hope u guys find your car soon...I know the feelin but it will come...I seen this ad but I just wish it was more stock in exterior wise http://baltimore.craigslist.org/cto/2178687203.html but it's nice :)
http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/doc/cto/2177443087.html this one seems nice if you get the price reduce a lil

http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/nva/cto/2172693762.html it's would be nice if it had the mileage but overall keep looking in the washginton dc CL cause that's consider the DMV and there are new cars almost everyday
