    Thinking of selling my Audi as it needs a few things doing to it. So might be looking at breaking the car. The car needs the following to make it right.

    Engine work - Timing belt and pulleys, oil pump, maybe lifters.

    Body work - Passenger side rear door has some surface rust but needs a good respray to make the car good again. The car when i bought was needing a freshen up and my mate said he would paint it as he had the paint. £200 all in. (Still able to do this.)

    Interior- Drivers seat has the usual wear but needs replaced as does the front passengers seat.

    The car has just got a fresh MOT but i am looking at Breaking the car now as i think the cost of putting it right will be too great.

    Whats your opinions on this?

    What is the car really worth?

    The car has Height adjustable suspension only covered 1500miles
    Angel eyes headlights
    Old style RS4 wheels 2 tyres need replacing.

    So i can sell that on to make some cash back and then anything else people want from it.

    Hard to give any sort of realistic valuation without viewing, either in the metal, or in pictures.

    When will pictures be available?

    The side repeaters arent genuine. But if you want them they are for sale.

    I am sure the discs are 288mm It is a 1995 B5 1.8T sport

    Busy today most of the car is broken. Just the suspension, brakes and doors to take off.

    Engine/gearbox is out. If enough interest willing to break engine.

    Is there an interior for sale here? I see you have the leather doorcards for £50 but no mention of any seats? I'm looking for a leather interior to fit my B5.
    Cheers mate.

    got the parts mate, thanks you have gone above and beyond !
    Car ticks over properly now thanks to the surge valve.

    could still do with 1 or 2 of the screws that hold the 2 parts of the steering cowling together and the bit from the back of the steering wheel which does the indicator knock off (Slip Ring?) if anyone has em laid about?

    also could do with an interior trim piece, the lower side trim from the passenger side, the black plastic bit that the seat belt comes through

    thanks
