Everyone loves a good back-story these days right?
Anyway here's mine (so you can skip this bit if you prefer)..
Was out of the country for a while and then spent the last couple of months in/out of hospital (going in again in a few weeks) so only just getting to sort some recent issues with the A4 and deciding what to do with it.
While I was away the local lowlife scumbag decided that he need to smash up a few cars in the carpark here.
My A4 got the brunt of it. He's been found guilty & ordered to pay compensation. But as you've probably guessed he's living with mummy and getting paid from my/our taxes so the chances of him paying me before I die is pretty slim.
Damage that needs repairing is windscreen and windscreen wiper arms.
The rest was superficial.
I also need to sort the driver-side airbag connector as it's throwing a fault on that. Is it possible this was triggered by the smashed windscreen? (probably not)
So any suggestions on best places to source a screen and wiper arms?
I hear that some VW wiper arms fit as well... any specifics on this?
Once it's all done it'll get a damn good clean as it deserves.
Then I may have to sell it on as it's not really been used nor will it be I suspect.
Or should I forget the repairs and sell it as-is or maybe part it out?
It's a R-plate A4 B5 2.8l 30v Quattro Avant.
Not in bad condition with usual little dings. Quite recent full stainless exhaust system from cat's back.
Some very nice 17" wheels from a later Audi (with brand new spare).
Any idea what these cars go for these days?
I'm basically trying to decide what to do with it so any input is welcome.
