There isn't much info in your original post.. What engine is it?

What is the CEL for? If it's something like an EVAP or SAI issue, then no big deal really. ABS light could have something to do with the ABS sensors or the module might need to be rebuilt. The Airbag light can be removed with VCDS I believe.

I would definitely have the ECU scanned for all of the codes before you make ANY decisions. Once you get the codes, post them here and we'll try to help you out. Is it a 5 speed?

Post some pictures or a link to a listing if you have it. An 01 1.8t Quattro 5 Speed for 3200 sounds good, as long as the issues aren't too big.

Sent you a PM. And if it is not quattro with a manual transmission, I would wait for one that is.
