Audi 80 2.8E Write-Off Value
Anyone got an idea how much these cars are worth (2 wheel drive model)? My 2.8 was written off in style by a Land Rover Freelander last week and I now have the pleasure of arguing the toss with his insurers over its value.
Having spent 2 years searching for a decent one I had the good fortune to pick mine up for not a lot of cash, but 10 weeks down the line (a new power steering pump and battery later) some pillock reverses onto it's bonnet and I'm up against the suits and their "It's just an old car" attitude. These are even rarer than the Quattro. Totally gutted!!!!!!
I've just seen a 60k one advertised at £1975 at a dealership (can't sell many cars with prices like that) and as it's the only one currently for sale I'm having bother proving a believable figure to the swines.
Could accept the value of a 2.6 but they are not as rare and 25bhp down on 2.8 (kind of like accepting XR4 money for a Cosworth, as I keep trying to point out). Who am I kidding, I'll be lucky if they offer me 1.9TDI money!!
Any info on prices, number imported and how many survive would be greatly appreciated. Would also like another one if you see any good ones advertised anywhere but seeing as they were only made for 11 months I won't be holding my breath. Would also like to know what Glass's value car at, as Insurers seem to treat this with Bible like status.
Your help will be greatly appreciated and assist me in getting rid of the horrendous 1.6 Scenic courtesy car currently parked on my drive. "In event of an accident you will be provided with a similar sized car". Similar car my a**e, where's the rest of the engine??????
