Was scouting around ebay last night and came across this;
2001 AUDI A4 1.8T QUATTRO SPORT VOTEX GMBH BODYKIT LEATHER SPARES OR REPAIRS | eBay
The car is located 5 miles from me.
The ad states that the car turns over but doesn't fire - so im guessing its probably something to do with having little to no compression. (can't see it as being as silly as an electrical issue).
My friend has an AWT engine from a passat which im guessing would be a straight swap / donor engine with a few ECU adjustments?
