Been thinking about getting a Quattro for a while, spotted one on ebay and went for it:
Bit of an unusual color, but has a few little niggles we need to sort out.
Mark (Byzan_A4) drove us down to get it, unfortunately the journey home wasnt so easy. We had to pull over after about 3 miles with some horrible steering judder, and upon stopping the smoke pouring off the two offside wheels highlighted the problem. A bit of sharp braking and some poking with a screwdriver seemed to free them off, but we decided to head to halfords and effect a better repair. Pulled the front sliders in the halfords carpark (where i took the above photo) and added some WD40 to free the sliders up a bit, which got us the 200miles home without any further problems.
Spent today stripping the brakes all round. Swapped the 312's over from the FWD and greased up the rear sliders properly. Swapped the wheels over too and made some headway into stripping the bits i want to transfer off the old car. I also did an oil change, and we fitted my satin black interior handles. I'm hoping to give it a wash tomorrow, and i'll post up some better pics once thats done!
Theres a few things i want to change on it, like the chrome roof rails and metal interior trim. I also need to fix an ABS fault, and we've discovered a broken rear spring too, so that will need attention before the MOT (due in a months time).
