Hey all, I'm looking to buy an a4 and was wondering a couple things regarding the 1.8t models. What year is best for general modding? Also, I know the a4 got a facelifts and such in 98, and again in 99.5, but I was wondering if anything else changed, such as the engine. The reason I ask is that I'm currently looking at a '97 a4 1.8t that is actually a pretty good price with decent mileage. I was just wondering if I should just hold out and pay a few thousand more for a 98' up model. Basically, are the '97's that much different/worse than the '98 up models. Thanks, any help would be appreciated.
