    .... a 1.8t Avant Quattro Sport 180 and the normal Avant 1.8t.

    Obviously i know the non-sport is 150 and not 180, but what else was different?
    Are there quattro non-sports?
    Reason for asking as im in the market for a 1.8t Avant. Would love a quattro sport 180 but the one i want looks like itll be sold before i can get there, so as theyre a rare breed shall i just get a normal 1.8t and remap it?

    Can someone elaborate on differences if any?

    Cheers guys...

    the only quattro 1.8T in the uk market was the 180HP Quattro Sport model

    The other models are all FWD and are 150hp.

    I would try and get a quattro.

    If you do get a FWD, then go for a sport model, they come with a quicker steering rack, better seats, lowered suspension and better shocks, alloy wheels, bigger antiroll bars etc.

    ^^^^ what he said
    nice to you back again, I would hold out on a Quattro 4WD i believe the sport has white dials, 1/2 leather, sport shocks, different alloys 17" and a bigger turbo.

    Yeah I would hold out for a quattro. Others will come up I would not rush into the first one you see. They are not that rare and another will pop up.

    Good luck finding one you like.

    Not hugely keen on the green, but its not bad. If i can get one cheap enough it can be resprayed. Still tempted by a local S4 but that would mean a loan and im not keen on that really
