long story short, i browsed craigslist every day, at 2 am found a newly posted a4 for 4 grand. 66k miles. i emailed him then and there, and at 6 pm that night, declared the car mine.

i bought 1997 a4, 1.8t quattro, automatic (meh) 66k miles for $3800. the car is mint. nothing wrong with it. ive put 1000 miles on it in a few weeks. i drive 135 miles round trip to college and back. gets like 25ish mpg combined with an auto. im seriously 100% happy. i tinted the windows, and added a new head unit and sub. theres tons of mod opportunity with it. but mustang comes first. i still might do chip, coil overs, wheels, down pipe. but next year.

That definitely was quite the steal. I did read this when you posted, but obviously forgot in the war of words that was going on lol. I've been checking all the local listings everyday waiting for the one i'm looking for.

Do you guys think this could be a steal if its just the hood/headlight that need to be replaced?

Well i could get a replacement hood for 600, or an aftermarket one for less. Headlights are a couple hundred bucks also. But that's still half the price of the other ones i've been looking at and they have more km on them.

I emailed the person and asked what caused the dent. i'm thinkin a deer.

I'll say it one last time. I know you want a cool car and all, but the first thing you should be looking for in a college commuter is reliability. 8k is enough to get you an AWD, 5spd 2008 Suzuki SX4 in your area, with like 40km on the clock. Thing is, we are living up north, where they put a crap ton of salt on the roads. Most cars 10+ years old will be rusted as hell underneath. I've shopped for cars enough to know this. Maintenance will be PITA, you'll break bolts, etc. Not to mention some cars might even start to have structural issues at that point.

I would not bother with the sport suspension package if your mind is really set on an Audi, as the shocks and springs will most likely need replaced. Or have already been replaced with standard ones beause the owner didn't feel like paying extra when time came to replace these parts.

The one nice thing about the Audi is they use undercoated, galvanized steel so they resist rusting very well.

You must be from Ohio...

Home of the state where they must be adding something to the salt to induce rusting.

The center vents are probably broken, maybe the fan slider as well
