You must be new to the 1.8T. Call it a downgrade or a potential for whatever. There are a couple people in this section who also own an Allroad.

You can get clean titled B5 A4s for $2,500. But with the prices being that low, I don't find that price unreasonable.

price seems right, but too little information.

Sounds like a good price, as long as it's not a pile.

price seems right, but too little information.

the reason I need to get 1.8t because the MPG 1st . second its an AUDI
and actually its not too bad with HP with tuning. its more easy to tune than the 2.7t its pain a lot

the a4 b5 its 1999 and it has 150k miles 5 speed manual
it has bad cat's . but its fine i need to install downpipes and get stage 1+ ecu and lower it more a little and of course the TB should be done on it
so I'd say I have to spend on it around $1500~

is that sound fair ?

I do apologies if my english its bad lol (not too long living in USA)

Why was it rebuilt? Unitized cars are designed to take a hit once and the second time they are hit they crush much easier. If you are really interested in this car I would find out as much as you can about why it has been rebuilt. If you are in an accident this car may not protect you as well as a regular model. Personally I stay away from rebuilds because it is not worth it.

Consider looking in SoCal..on Craigslist, talk w owner, pay for a $125 pre purchase inspection with a good shop close to owner.you call shop and set it up...prepaid..owner just takes it over. . If it all works out take bus out or fly, pickup rally back to SLC. Due diligence and patience is an absolute necessity to get a quality car which will save you bookoo $$$ in the long run. Buy the owner as much as the car!!
