and i'm in love.
Its nothing special but this is the first time I've driven home a car that I bought and was thoroughly excited.
My brother and I know this guy through a local car forum (cincyscoobs), second owner of this pristine '99 1.8T A4 quattro. He wanted to sell it and step into an r32 and was letting it go cheap.
He was OCD about the car literally knit-picked everything its flawless, i'm the third owner now
You could tell he really invested a lot of time in it and I got it for a steal of a deal. You couldn't ask for a better guy to buy a car from. He was hardcore emotionally attached, I felt terrible driving away I saw him start to cry. That touched me for some reason. It was cool. I felt bad though like I was stealing something from him, I guess it was his first car he bought in high school.
Here are some pictures I stole from him, and some information about it.
- Stg. 1 APR ECU chip, 91 & 100 octane files
- Forge Splitter DV
- N75 race boost frequency / wastegate control valve
- 3" 034 Motorsport test pipe
- Rear O2 anti-fouler
- K&N cone intake
- Blinktek intake heat shield
- 2.5" 304SS exhaust, one resonator to dump behind rear wheels
Suspension and bend stuff
- H&R sport springs
- Bilstein shocks
- HD tie rods
- Homebrew power steering cooler
- Hawk HP+ pads
- Zimmerman rotors
- RBF 600 High temp brake fluid
- European 2-piece headlights
- 6000K HID low beam
- 3000K halogen high beam
- Homebrew S6-style LEDs
- Clear European sidemarkers
- Podi column mounted boost gauge, electronic w/ stepper motor
He also included a ton of extra gaskets and parts, not to mention nearly EVERYTHING suspension related has been replaced with brand new oem parts.
It didn't come with the enkies shown it does have some OK looking Mille Miglia 16x7s on it, they'll be used for winters while I save for a summer set up with some proper *** wheels
Paint and interior are near perfect, and all the preventative maintence was done including taking care of the water pump impeller issue 1.8ts have. Good things come to people who wait I guess.
cool track action pic he has too, car went around mid ohio
inb4: vag thread, don't care, slow, gay, 1.8ts suck, should've got s4, poor, poors car, jwrx bro, should've got a wrx, should've got dodge camero
I apologize for the stupid thread. I typically don't make new car thread but I was excited and have no real friends to talk to.
I'll snap some pictures of it tomorrow that will actually capture the cleanliness of this car. It blows my mind its a 99.
