    2000 AUDI A4 1.8 T Quattro Sport

    I e-mailed these people about this car and they said it was the six speed version, but it doesn't look like it to me from the pictures! Who on here would know from the look of this thing whether it really is a "sport" and whether it's got a six speed box?

    Would it also have DIS?- I think it looks like it does...

    Thanks

    No B5 1.8T had a 6 speed from the factory, so unless it was retrofitted (which is somewhat unlikely) it'll be a 5 speed.

    It will have a DIS for sure.

    No, its a 5spd box (looks at the top of the gear stick, has 6 positions)
    Yes it looks like a TQS (same as mine)
    Though looks like it has aftermarket headlamps with the led DRLs (watch out for mot issues).

    Has BOSE audio :music: and yes Definately DIS

    Looks a clean car though...

    is it just me or does the car look a bit high at the back?? The bap between rear arch and tyre..... just a bit odd?!?? They normally look lower at the back than the front.

    I think non sport springs/dampers fitted. Mine had broken rear springs when i got my tqs, and i believe its a common problem? Could an inexperienced garage unknowingly fit standard shock setup instead of sport stuff????!

    thought BOSE equipped cars had BOSE on the front door tweeters?

    Good excuse to knock seller down on price and then fix it with some nice lowering goodies!

    Yeh it'll have been fitted with springs from a motorfactors or similar for a "1.8T Quattro", unfortunately these places never sell replacement springs for sport models, hence the silly ride height. A member on here had the same thing happen, and the garage insisted they'd settle, when infact they were just wrong.

    jcb: craigs S4 has bose and it only has badges on the lower door speakers
