Hello everyone and Help! 2.6 Coupe advice needed!
Im new to this forum and I hope this is the right place for advice on all matters Audi 80 Coupe! :)
Be gentle with me!
I have had numerous VW's in the past, custom Mk4 Golf show cars etc and now drive a 2.0TDi A3 and a Boxster S but my Girlfriend was looking to buy a new car and after much trawling of ebay/autotrader she decided that she really wanted an Audi Coupe above everything else! so after a couple of months of looking at utterly dreadfull examples, I parted with £1700 and came home with an immaculate K reg 2.6E V6 B4 Coupe in a sort of british racing green colour. After telling my girlfriend that an 'old' car like this would be at best a bit tatty, Im actually amazed! It hasnt got a single mark/scratch/dent/rust anywhere on it and seems spotless inside as well. Full service history which runs into £1000's and the previous owner has fitted the 17" TT/RS4 replica alloys, the clear indicators all round, RS badges and a full Stainless exhaust which sounds lovely!
so all in all im pretty impressed with it, it drives spot on and there isnt a single squeak and rattle or knock from anywhere and the engine is a smooth as a baby's bottom!
so I can see why you guys love your 80's! good choice guys and girls!
My only question at the moment is that I fancy fitting some lowered suspension springs as there is a good 2 inch or so between arch and tyre and the ride feels a touch wobbly and 'wooley'. what sort of drop do you recommend? I was looking at a either an AVO 40mm or 60mm kit and possibly fit some bushes while im at it.
Will either of these ride heights be ok with the 17's and will any 80 - B4 chassis saloon/coupe springs fit ok? ie, are they all the same regardless of engine or saloon/coupe?and lastly, does anyone have any pics of their 80 saloon/coupe thats been lowered so I can have a look at what different drop heights look like?
many thanks for your help and Im sure I will be on here a bit more often now I have one of these cool toys! :yes:
