Recently got back into a b5 (on my 3rd). 2001 1.8tqm. Picked it up on the cheap because of the high miles at 208k. When I went to check it out I was amazed at the condition it was in and how it ran. If I never saw the mileage I would have said it has 80k miles on it tops. The PO has owned since 100k and has maintained it religiously. He also dumped about 3-4k in mods. It has some imprefections like rear bumper scuffs, lcd out, seat rip but thats minor stuff for the miles.

H&R sport springs with bilsteins
3" custom mendrel bent turbo back to a borla
giac chip
forge dv
jhm ss
solid trans mounts
apr snub mount

I'm sure there is more that I'm forgetting. Safe to say this car has a ton of life in it still. All you 1.8t owners take care of your cars because they will last. Thanks.

Looks good, I'm not sold on the wheels, but I know the "looks better in person" is a true statement.

The local meets always need more B5's [:D]

Good buy! Maintenance is a much bigger factor to me than miles (although my history of buying cars wouldn't suggest so), and I think the wheels look good to get that missing center cap on there.

Funny, I just got back into my third Audi, second B5. 2000 1.8TQM with very similar mod list, from a 2nd owner with 207k miles.

That's an absolutely smoking deal for what you paid. I'm happy for you.

Damn, I just saw the $1700 part. Hell of a deal! I paid $4000 for mine and I thought I was coming out decently on top being that the car is in excellent shape and the PO did all the huge maintenece items and modifications not even 5k miles before I bought it.

It's loud down low, no drone on the highway though. I don't like the borla it has on it. I want to upgrade to a dual tip 3" Vibrant.
