Hello,

I am looking at a Wagon, 5speed today over lunch that is a '99 1.8 Turbo. I am mechanically inclined when it comes to working on old german cars (I own a bmw 2002, had old beetles) and motorcycles ( i rebuilt some old BMW motorcycles too)... but what should i look for in these used cars? electrical issues? how can i tell if the clutch is strong?

The Wikki link was very helpful as far as listening to the turbo hiss and the TBB failure. The pdf on this thread is super old... and is a basic used car guide vs specific Audi issues.

i can't trust anybody's word in LA so it is really going to be up to my instinct and whatever advice i can get.

Thanks in advance!

I'm currently looking a 2000 audi S4 biturbo tons of extras with 140,736 miles for $8,999.
I've never had an Audi before and wanted to know if the high amount of mileage will result in rebuilding the engine?

As with all B5 models be aware of control arms, tie rods, ball joints needing service as they are notorious for failing along with wheel bearings.

Timing belt and water pump are another big job that should be replaced if its a higher mileage car. The previous owner may have had it changed once but due to the old age and possible higher mileage it might be ready for its second timing belt job.

Other then what the other members have mentioned that's really it. Might have to deal with a few odds and ends needing replaced here and there but that's typical when owning an Audi!
