    Hi all, i'm selling my a4 1.8TQ 1999. It is modified but had it 4 years and did stuff to it years ago that looking back i shouldn't have! But the only place i think i'd get anywhere is ebay. Can anyone think of anywhere else.
    I'm afraid to say this is my car:-

    All help very appreciated, and all cracks welcome too lol

    If it didn't have the spoiler it would not look to bad.

    Try ebay thats a good bet but some people will pay for the 1.8T Quattro even when looking a bit sorry for its self.

    How much you looking to get ?

    Not as bad as I was expecting to be honest! Should fetch reasonable enough money on the 'bay I would have thought.

    Like Markey said. if it didn't have the rear spoiler it wouldn't look too bad. Belive me I have seen worse. What sort of mileage and history has it got?

    it has got full history, 113k, altho had piston rings, shells, oil pump, all new tappets etc bout 90k after oil pump seized. mite remove spoiler and add it as an option. Cheers guys. It drives lovely. The outer edge of the front grille is painted in a flip paint. Jetex exhuat. Pipercross panel filter, and has been chipped by chipped uk. Will be sorry to se her go, but can;t even get a jack underneath and doesn't go on any ramps lol.

    Remove the boot spoiler slap on a M3 type have the holes filled and it will be a very nice car indeed.

    thanks all, would love an s4, but thinking of maybe a vectra gsi as a temp gap, as work for vauxhall. But then my mature side says get an old run around and save for my s4. Unsure what to get if i'm honest. I can not get the damn thing on any ramps or even get a jack underneath etc, ya get the pic, and i haven't even lowered it

    I think you would get a better price for the car without the spoiler, other than that it looks quite good.

    1.8T Quattro's go for more than that and once you loose the boot spoiler it should be worth more.

    very nice... without the wing in the back. you can also try craigslist.com... you must list a price because its not for bidding.

    I agree, swap that rear spoiler for something low profile and I bet youll get more for it too

    Good luck with your sale :)

    Someone should buy this and take the spoiler off and you will have a nice looking car with great potential for engine mods.
