theres no surprises with an audi , you either treat it with respect or it out performs you. id be proud of owning mine , especially if i can fix it , but for now ive got electrical blues. history of the cars good , im owner nine. last driver unknown , the car has been scaffolded probably , barrel out etc and left illegally parked. i say that because it was not 100% roadworthy before the thieves target left them roadside , about 400yds , down. , 100% roadworthy because the battery was flat , and it had had a nasty scrape from a bus company. this car has just changed hands and obviously it is immobilised , not dainty. i have the key , its coded , but as the miniscule pieces i stare at crumble in my palm i wonder what is the smartest fix for the car , to hear the engine to enjoy the road. steering lock off (not sure) , first barrel out , teeth missing , springs sprung , code reader dangling , shelf out , white box exposed , ign wires twisted. i wanna hear the engine , drive the road. any clever answer will do. 1995 coupe V6. ps ... im just a lad down the road and the scrapes nowt.
