Used Car Reviews #8211; Audi 80 2.0E

Audi 80, Again a black car – is it with them?

I#8217;ve fond of the smallest of the #8217;80s-#8217;90s While there#8217;s something porcine about the round bodyshape, the build quality and to rust make it a well-surviving

Of course, it does count one you pick and how you keep it; one 80 I checked out time ago with a friend had a leaky camcover gasket we had to abort the testdrive after minutes and turn back; underhood smoke is not a good point. Another didn#8217;t try to set on fire but had peeling paint, and (a brown one, no less) was with the 1.6-litre diesel that just wouldn#8217;t go.

So, could today#8217;s car redeem the earlier ones had screwed up?

out local ads, I noted 1991 example for sale at a car dealer, along the strip most of the dealers are around The ad made note of its cleanliness, and it lie; with zero very few paint chips and a but mostly unworn interior it was a car had kept its cool. I#8217;ve no how hot it could be in the summer, though, no A/C or sunroof and in midnight black.

The car come without some of the 252 000 km odo reading; the driver#8217;s door let the door drop a little opened and needed to be adjusted, and was the smallest patch of wear on the seat#8217;s left seatback But the recently-waxed metallic paint good and clean under lighting, and the panels appeared and true.

How do you like those fuel From top: E85 ethanol, ethanol/fuel blend, 98E5 and at the bottom is diesel, with a raise at new year#8217;s.

The Audi#8217;s owners were said to be an couple, and the Audi#8217;s image certainly suit the story. The 80 doesn#8217;t really lend to visual improvements, with the jawless front and slab combined with coin-sized there#8217;s little one can do to freshen up while maintaining the classic minimalist style. A set of Ronal wheels could be sourced enough, I think.

The latter, B4 80 is still the same car but looks like it#8217;s an attitude #8211; and the Competition special edition looks excellent.

Even the clock was on But, there was something to about #8211; see the one section on the rev that#8217;s had a light go out? a minus in my book.

The sound was a fairly fiddly Sony This car needs a period-correct

Behind the wheel and out on the road, the battled snowy crosswinds The two-litre four has the guts to the smallish car fairly well, a satisfying thrum audible. sure that were the car a the weight of the system would bog it #8211; but the four-wheel-drive 80s did come a 16-valve version of the engine, of the eight-valve here.

While I liked the snick-snack that felt pretty the same as it does on newer cars, the clutch on this car feel as confidence-inspiring. Blame the owners, I thought. The steering was tilted slightly to the right driving straight ahead, so an would need to be done quickly glancing the car#8217;s I noticed some front end had been replaced and that screwed the alignment.

Still, was a whine to be heard from right, in highway speed.

And we#8217;re talking maintenance, who the timing belt three in 100,000 km/60k miles?

Timing belt: 148k 214k #8217;06, 240k Unless there was something needed to be replaced with the taken out, like a seal, this is a bit hasty.

under hood things so clean you could#8217;ve eaten off the If the dealership had steam-cleaned it, I#8217;m all for it; if the owner had kept it well even better. It#8217;s the 20-year-old Audi engine seen.

A good sign.

So, that faint front-end is something dear, this euro car seemed a decent despite inspection due date in March. It would need a hundred#8217;s worth of fixing getting the alignment done for the steering and driver#8217;s door, but about it. The winter tires the car were fairly inoffensive Noranzas, but the summer set could do fresher rubber #8211; were the summer steelies with a set of period alloy that wouldn#8217;t be an issue.

To end with, 252k on the clock is a bit on the side for me to be absolutely infatuated the Audi, but it seems to have its km:s well. The odo could 70k less and I wouldn#8217;t suspect a

Does the shininess of this win you over, or does its dullness you give it a pass?
