VEHICLE STORY

Bought this car (its a 53 plate first registered on 3rd January 2004!) for a reasonable price but on delivery it was damaged and after two weeks the lambda sensors died so 6 weeks back at the dealer under warranty and it comes back with vac lines cracked which caused minor rev hunting, voltage issues and blowing the fuse on the esp system. Back to an audi specialist and the vac lines are done and replaced so the car runs sweet but there is a short to ground somewhere. The investigation is underway and the outcome looks good. My ambition for this car is to restore it back to factory, hopefully with all of the possible factory upgrades from that time i.e the solar sunroof etc, of course get some enjoyment out of it but as to whether I'd ever sell it... Who knows. For now it needs to be loved and cared for. 11 owners have previously given up hope on it and it looks like we have just found out why.. Such a shame though. It's a very handsome car to this day and has aged very well. It has been cared for as far as financially, the owners have thrown thousands at this car hand over fist, but I think this car has been treated like a race car, not a luxury motorway cruiser that it truly is hence the high number of owners and the extensive full service history with most of the known DRC and gearbox replacement issues taking place no more than 20,000 miles ago, both done at exactly the same time at 62,000 miles - OUCH!!. But I did get into this knowing that these cars can be ludicrously expensive so the top priority was to get one that was right mechanically and this one was a barn find to be honest. I would challenge anyone to find one in better condition WITH the same level of financial care that this has had for cheaper than what I paid. I spent a good few months hunting and let downs were common but being semi - suspicious I found myself in a situation that everything pointed to this car so I took it and now I'm stuck with it..
