    Just saw this ad and was wondering why it said it was quattro, I called him up and he claimed it was and that it had all the drivetrains etc. As far as I was aware there was no 1.6 quattro, had never seen or heard of one. So can any experts shed some light on this for me..?

    Probably some goon who thinks quattro is a cool buzz word to badge all over their car, unaware that it actually means AWD.

    it has the sport interior (seats, dials, steering wheel etc), which they never fitted to the 1.6 afaik

    and also the exhaust has the standard 1.8T/v6 twin outlets not the single 1.6/1.8 outlet...

    It also appears to be on a "99" plate yet doesnt have facelift headlights or interior, although maybe its a very early 99 car...

    Its probably worth a look, however at 6 grand it seems very expensive and i suspect that something dodgy is going on with the car, very close scruitineering of the paperwork not to mention actually looking under the car for the rear diff would be an idea...

    an ID check shows this:

    Registration No : 99LK1178 Fueltype : PETROL Model Description : AUDI A4 1.6E Colour : SILVER Bodytype : SALOON
    Perhaps its a ringer or something.

    1.8T quattro fitted with number plates from a wrecked 1.6 or something similar?

    They did 1.8T quattros in RoI before they released them over here, as ive seen a 1997 model previously, which would explain the non-facelift-ness of the car

    A4 quattro was available as a 1,8 non-turbo too.

    No 1,6 option, though pre-facelift 1,6 was available with manual aircon, of which I've seen quite a few.

    They're quite a rare car in general, they do come up though, ive seen quite a few bargains on there too, saw a B6 1.8TQS sell for ~2.5k with a knackered oil pump. Even if it needed another engine thats still a cheap B6!

    My old 1.6 A4 used to have to be thrashed sensless to get it to go anywhere can imagine the 4x4 running gear would make it even worse

    Unfortunately not, would have no use for the avant. If I need one I'll take my dads 03 A6 1.8TQ :)

    Anyone gotta any other websites they could recommend please?
