    It's really hard to find GTI's lately so I'd appreciate any input, this is the cheapest one I've found in a while.

    Not a dub expert here, but I got my 2001 A4 Avant for $18k with 50k miles, seems a little weird that it is only $5k more... If you like the car, go for it. I would go for a 2001, since I think that's when the 1.8t received a 30hp booster shot in the ass...

    I can find audi's super cheap here, just depending on the type. It's impossible to find any 1.8t quattro 5speeds here though though. I'd prefer the fwd version anyways, I need the extra gas milege.

    personally, 13.9 sounds a tad high with 53k, but with the warrenty that is a good price

    just make sure you drive the car and take it to a mechanic who is qualified to look over a turbo engine

    window regualators, as everyone knows, are bad from 98-02, so make sure those have been replaced with the newer metal pieces

    good luck


    if you havn't already checked it out, http://www.vwvortex.com is a great site

    yeah im hopeing to get the price lower, the miles don't scare me but i think the price is too high for that many miles. gti's seem to be pretty hard to find used right now and i need a car kinda quick.

    window regulators don't scare me. my last car went through two engines, and two transmissions the first six month of owning it. and i bought it new.
