I just got a '98 with every package and only 57k miles for $9.5k Granted there were a few scratches on the bumpers, but otherwise the car is in awesome condition.

thats an awesome deal 2000 and 2001 there is a noticable price hop in 2000 and 2001's compared to 99.5 and below

Right thats a killer deal. I just paid almost 13 for a 2000 with 60K and all the service records. But I am in New England and Audi prices are crazy up here.

Is it a manual or a tip? Black leather inside? Looks exactly like mine, except my windows are darker and I have no A4 badging.

I paid $16,600 for my 2001 1.8TQMS in december with 60K. The car is still worth what i paid for it and i've put 10K on her. Debadge it. Quick and easy DIY.

I paid $13,500 for my 2001 1.8TQM with all the packages in February with 58k. These cars really vary depending on area. I thought I got a good deal on mine, but <$10,000 for a 2000 is a steal!

well, just checked out the car. It ran well but the tbelt job actually wasnt done and the front and rear bumper will need to be repainted from city scratches. Also it is a 5spd. Let me know if you guys think its still worth it.

how bad is the bumpers.. u can do the timing belt yourself in one day... if the bumpers arent taht bad then i say go for it

TurbousMaximus
05-17-2005, 07:14 AM
they will need to be repainted thats for sure, the fronts not as bad as the rear but its very noticable from any distance.

BranCKY3
05-17-2005, 09:54 AM
I think it's still a good deal. $9800 + $300 for tbelt DIY + $? for repainting bumpers. Still less than what I paid, and I need to do my tbelt soon.

jaustin
05-17-2005, 11:09 AM
yeah you could pry do the bumpers yourself too :) since the front will be for if you do your own timing belt and if you do the front I see no point in not spraying the back at the same time.

I would still go with it

take it to an Audi dealer, have them look it over.

Then try to work him down even further on the price, that is what i would do. I bought my 99.5 A4 Q M with 60k on it for $14.5, so given if you can get the price down even further, go fur it man.

EDIT: and i paid that much and it didn't have the t-belt done,

sorry to thread jack, but i just rolled over 80,000 and i still haven't done the T-belt, am i playing with fire?

i got him down to 9,700. just need someone to come with me if possible, to Linden NJ, because i never had a 1.8t and my brother drives an S so its a bit different as to what to look for.

if tie rods werent done, and arnt making noise. whats the average cost of repairing them when they go, granted every audi is going to need them at some point.
