    hi all. so im looking for a used audi A4 and i found one in my local paper. The car is a loaded 99 quattro 1.8t with 87k miles the guy said it has always been dealer maintained he wants $10400 for it but i was gonna offer a low ball of like 8000 due to the high miles. This would be my first german car though so im not really sure what to be looking for...any specific engine problems i should ask about? does this sound like a good deal? any help would be awesome thanks guys!

    Both of those will help you out lots. Ask around, get to know the people, read horror stories. The 1.8t is a good motor, as long as its beeb taken care of. Make sure the timing belt has been done, 87k is wayyy past the timeframe.

    Indeed. Did the 1.8T coilpack recall apply to 99 1.8Ts? If so, ensure the car's had them replaced. They replaced an entire range of engines for free, whether or not they had the problem (mine didn't, but were replaced anyway, free of charge).

    No, the 99's were safe.
