looking to buy an a4 1.8t quattro which will be my first audi. a friend of mine has got a 1999 one for sale. he had it for about 5 months now and had no problems with it and its a pretty nice car. its got a few mods done that where already done when my mate got the car. i had a drive and a look round yesterday and everything seemed fine and im ready to buy it apart from one thing.
the only thing thats bothering me is that when you turn the ignition on and all the lights come on the dash before start up, the engine warning light does not come on so i think the bulb may have been taken out to hide a problem. also the digital display in the clocks is all broken up so you can only just read it, possibly damaged when the clocks where in pieces to remove bulb? however the display does say OK. there is also a single beep when you put the ignition on is this normal or indication of a fault? the car has a full stainless from the turbo back and is decatted so possibly this is why bulb taken out if the warning light is on due to de cat exhaust.
the guy who had the car before my mate says the car been remaped to 220bhp but no paper work to back this up. could a remap affect warning lights?
hope that all makes sense as grammer was never my best subject at school lol. many thanks in advance for any help you can give me
