Last year I picked up a 1996 A4 FWD 1.8T in laser red, it has just over 110K on the clock and it was advertised on ebay for £499 buy it now. I had the intension of breaking the car as I wanted to strip it for the panels & other items to repair my 1996 A4. When I collected the car it had one day left on the MOT and the clutch was just about destroyed, so made for an intresting 50 mile drive back home, before driving the car back I ran vag-com on the car which reported the temp sensor & lambda sensors as the only electronic errors, as the last thing I wanted was to be left on the side of the road with a fecked Audi. So after a couple of weeks thinking what to do with the car I decided not to strip the car but restore it. The faults on the car were as follows Clutch was almost non existent Wipers only worked on full Shocks were damaged (Due to cr@p lowering springs) Coolant sensor was faulty Lambda sensor was faulty Interior was beyond grubby (Must have been used as a kids playground) Hole in the drivers seat Steering wheel looked more like a sponge ABS kicks in just before the car stops Oil colour was jet black Coolant was nonexistent and was just brown (rust) water Lacquer is pealing from the bonnet Chavy boot spoiler which cover up the centre brake light Bulb on the instrument cluster out So over the last 6 months the following work has been done on the car New Bosch lambda sensor £80 New Audi Temp sensor £15 Boot lid from a scrap yard £20 in laser red Luk clutch inc thrust bearing £90 3x oil & filter changes £40 Coolant flushed about 6-8 times and expansion tank replaced £20 Wiper stalk for scrap yard £10 Passenger side seat £25 Leather steering wheel from ebay £30 Instrument cluster bulb £1 Leather gear gaiter £18 And final god knows how many hours @ 0.01p per hour with my labour rate. The biggest time consuming Jobs was the clutch (never replaced one before) then cleaning the interior, and finally stripping down the passenger seat which I got from the scrap yard which was in very good condition, and just used the covers & padding to rebuild the drivers seat. I used about 80 litres of water in the vax to clean the rear passenger seat & carpet, but they have come up clean. Ive still got to fully PC the car but the body work (expect the bonnet) is in good condition. The engine currently is free of faults and is running nice and smoothly, when the old clutch was removed the flywheel was found to be in very good condition, so did not need replacing as a new one would have push the cost of this car way over the budget I put aside to fix it up. The car went in for an Mot last week, and passed to my amazement with the following advisories Nearside Front anti-roll bar has slight play on ball joint [2.4.G.3] Front Exhaust has part of the system slightly deteriorated [7.1.1a] All brake discs slightly pitted The front part of the exhaust does need to be replace so on the lookout for a replacement unit, the brake discs have now cleaned up very well as the car had been sitting for 6 months and only drove about 6 miles to the MOT garage so still had a fair bit of surface rust. Ill get some pictures of the car up tomorrow, but I am interested on how much the car is worth I was hoping to get just over the £1000 mark, once my other car has been restored (6-8 moths time). Once sold I will be on the lookout for an S2 Coupe I'll put some pictures tomorrow.
