This is a pretty Nice car. Would like it to be a lot quicker and faster. I know 130 isnt fast enough. I'm gonna stiffen the suspention a little and chip it. Maybe some other things. Parts are not as expensive as Mercedes or BMW but still pricey.
The turbo charged engine.
Chip, stiffer suspension bigger turbo with stronger waste gate spring.
Performs better than any vehicle out there I will not even talk about any two wheel drive vehicles or 4w drive cars, the quattro is the best designed 4w drive system so it will perform better than most/all SUV's, remember this is Alaska the most extreme cold/snow state, comfortable and roomy, economy better than any vehicle in its class/weight, you cannot ever get it stuck if you tried, interior is very quiet due to double rubber seals around the doors, exterior is aerodynamic and I know what that means (work on airplanes), built quality for being a 1990 it does not have any rust on it, I have never been stranded anywhere nothing has ever broken on it to the point that you can't get to where you are going.
Everything, the looks, the drive, the best vehicle to drive on ice/snow, safety, the tough engine and quattro drivetrain it is very practically built vehicle.
None, start building this vehicle again to the new government standards/requirements.
after 15 yrs and 138k miles I am deeply saddened to let my 200 go. the car is gorgeous with pearl paint and a dream to drive. Repairs are pretty expensive however, and with a 16 yr old starting to drive, I'd like something with better mileage and dual airbags. I will miss this car
I wanted a sports
car originally, but this car was a good
deal, in great shape, and I haven't
been disappointed since. Despite being
FWD and somewhat porky, it rewards
aggressive driving in true German
fashion. The turboed 5-cylider engine
flings this big beast down the road
with massive authority. Repairs are
fairly expensive, requiring lots of
speical-order parts, but infrequent.
Looking for a family sedan that's fun
to drive? This one is an absolute
steal. Comfy, sporty, and good-looking
to boot. Looking for a cheap tuner car?
Look elsewhere: Aftermarket and
replacement parts are hard to come by,
and usually very expensive.
Turboed 5-banger has a unique sound.
Red-lit gauges are easy on the eyes
during long nightime drives. I get a
lot of "Nice car, what is it?" at drive-
thrus and gas stations.
Had I been on the Audi design team 14
years ago (don't think they were hiring
many 6-year-olds), I would have dumped
the bose stereo, bumped the wheels up
to 16's, and turned up the boost a
All I can say is, wow. THis cxar has
so much power, the quattro keeps it on
the road through hard corners and wet
roads. The turbo gives it a well-
apreciated boost. If anybody knows
what a Volkswagen Corrado is, they will
apreciate that I beat one with this
car. When you get in this car and turn
the key, you know it is an Audi,
perhaps one of the top ten best cars
ever engineered and built. If you find
one in good condition, buy it, it is
well worth it, these cars are rare.
Everything on this car is awesome, it
wouldn't be an Audi without all the
