    Hi I've seen 99 1.8 Quattro advertised but it doesn't appear to be a turbo, until now I had believed the 1.8 Quattro only came in turbo form.

    Can someone fill me in please?

    Thanks

    Hi
    i think they only did a V6 2.8 and the 1.8 T in that year but i could be wrong too
    have you a link for the advert ?

    The advert just says 1.8, no mention of a turbo.

    I've done a reg check on it and it just comes back as a 1781cc A4 Quattro. I checked a known turbo car and it rightly came back as 1.8t Quattro.

    Obviously there is no turbo badge on the engine cover but that's as much as I can see from the picture with my very limited knowledge lol.

    I'll check with seller also but just wanted a little background info before I called.

    The Greek and Polish market did have the ADR-engined A4 in quattro form, and perhaps some other countries.

    There's a Lithuanian guy that comes to my shop, that runs one.

    Odd as it may seem, B5 A4 quattro was available as a 1,8 20V non-turbo.

    Haven't seen the V5, since it was confirmed non-turbo I didn't bother calling about it.

    Just keep looking........... :)

    Australia also got the None turbo 1.8 Quattro but it is a very rare car to come across.

    Well i have to say everything looks cosha on that Quatty NA. Its an SE spec looking at the barge seats and steering wheel. The badges back it up by the looks add to that the split folding seats ( another possible sign of quatty)
    Odd one.

    I prefer the green one though YUMMY
