View Full Version : My first Audi (and car) - 2000 A4 2.8 Quattro

08-15-2016, 11:58 PM
This is my first car, a 2000 Audi A4 2.8 Quattro. I got it on Craigslist for $1800. It only has 130,000 miles and is in amazing condition because this was not the owner's main car, and it was kept in storage for a couple of years while the owner was out of the country.

Although I have been interested in cars for a while, my experience and technical knowledge are almost none. Is there any place where I can start learning from the basics? I looked at a lot of builds and forum posts, but most of what people say doesn't make much sense to me. I have been loving this car and would like to upgrade/tune/modify (not sure what term is acceptable) it in the future.

As a complete newb, I would appreciate any advice or suggestions from you guys. And of course, here's the car:

Clean car! Is it a manual?

Not to too much you can do with a 2.8 tune wise, PES superchargers are cool but expensive. The 1.8T is where all that is mainly at.

Damn I paid double that for a worse condition car with more miles.

The bad news you're sorta SOL on tuning/modding. Sure there's SOME you can do, but not a whole lot. 1.8's are the ones to have fun on.

The good news is you've got a workhorse. Take good care of it and it'll last YEARS. The other good news is that I was sorta in the same boat as you as far as car knowledge: going in with not a lot but a desire to know everything. I certainly don't know a LOT but I sure know a hell of a lot more now that I've had 4 years of work on my 2.8.
