aite.. i'd go for the 99.5 for sure. You'll save $1000.. if you put that back into the car, you can easily get +20hp. Plus, you have an accident free car with less miles.

If I were you, I would go for the 1999 one. The other one doesn't sound like a good choice although it's cheap. Or maybe shop around again, there are lots of used audi available in town.
Are you buying from audi dealer? or somewhere else ?

I would go with the 99 because the guy took care of it. I bought a '00.5 a year ago and love the bigger style. My girl and best friend have a '98 and '99 and the '00.5 drives better. Don't ever go by rims. Make sure the guy take cares of it. Little things to check. Check his Service Manual. Check if he uses Audi's oil filters. I'm a detailer so I check for scratches and paint. Just to see if he waxed it or even washed it. Audis are really expensive to fix.
I hope I helped. Check on Ebay Motors. They have pretty good deals.

go with the 1999.5. No doubt about it.

Lets be reasonable here.. you don't need a car with THREE accidents on the board when you can have one with NONE for $1000 less. Not to mention 14k less miles on the clock.

the horsepower issue.. is simply... not an issue. You're saving $1000 buying the 99.5. Put that $1000 into the engine (chip and intake).. and you'll easily have more than 20 extra hp.
