    looking for a sub £1000 quattro for the missus

    is this going to be painful or do they exist?
    want something ideally that does not involve me spending a week on my arse in the snow under it to get it working again.

    anyone seen one recently?
    willing to travel, watching a few on ebay

    I got our W plate 2.5 TDis for £1500 and £1600 from the auctions (in Aberdeen, so maybe out of your area). I would expect you can get older, petrol ones for less than a grand - but you do get what you pay for. Mine had a turbo over-boosting and an airbag fault, both of which would be expensive at a garage (grand or so?), but a can of Mr Muscle and second hand airbag module fixed that. Hers had DIS lines and suspension arms (another grand or so?) so my 'cheap' cars were only cheap because I could fix them!
