Trade me quattros
« on: July 20, 2020, 07:46:06 pm »
Some interesting cars appear on trademe recently.
Apart from the ur quattro in Nelson a coupe quattro turned up from Wellington today.
I am usually pretty good spotting these cars but I have never seen that coupe around the region.

Maybe of interest to someone and it would be nice to see more of them cruising around over summer.

looks pretty straight, low ish kms....weird that its running the single exhaust tip, it should be a twin. the front right headlight is toast and maybe wouldn't pass WOF.....looks worse than any of my spares.....paint looks pretty good. interior is ok, wonder whats under the seats. that shifter is weird....not being a dick, i am happy to see this in the wild....nz new too. really interested to see what this goes for. Deans left hook rally prepped Malcolm Stewart one went off to aussie a year or so back for 6 and change or maybe 7k? i can't quite remember exactly but i remember thinking it was a steal.....no rear badge on this green one either.....looks super straight and original for the most part though, sweet car..... hmmmm, no ABS either....that wasn't standard on the NZ new cars I have seen. I have never seen this one around. I know of mine, a mint showroom fresh red one that had 140,000km on it last time i saw it a few years back and a dark blue one that was a daily of someone in happy valley brooklyn welly that i have not seen for years....... will be watching this out of interest....I have no idea what they are worth these days....original or modified.....

That Audi 90 Quattro appears to be in tidy condition but the odo hasn’t worked for 2.5 years. Why on earth wouldn’t you sort that out when it happened?

The white b3 was mine for a 18 months, sold it a mate who is passionate about old Quattro when i found another b2 90q.
The ODO hasn't worked for 15 years. It was parked up for 12 years before the guy I got it off bought it.
Don't believe the cambelt has been changed in forever either, was on my to do list along with finding out the occasional no start and repairing the cross threaded spark plug thread on number 5 cylinder.

Probably cos most people would break the poor thing to pieces, than and odometergears.com charge moonbeams for two tiny pieces of plastic

For those of you who spotted the green Quattro Coupe for sale recently on Trade Me (with a spare GT donor car) ,and made various knowledgeable comments about it online; -  I bought it for $15 k ..who knows if that was about right or too much???  I've had the driver's seat bolster reupholstered, done heaps of smaller cosmetic things..rear parcel shelf, missing rearseat side panel trims, etc currently looking for a correct rear exhaust muffler and twin tail pipes. Any suggestions welcome!

Not sure about the comment on odometer...it and speedo work fine and always have according to the guy I bought it off.  Right headlight reflector is away getting resilvered. Got a new sunshine roof seal on the way from Highland, and will get the sunshine roof panel straightened up and repainted when the seal arrives.  Mechanically it seems very good...can't really fault it, although there is a bit of on and off throttle play in the driveline...possibly normal what with all the cv's and uj's -in the system?

The other difficult issue is the lack of rear Audi and Quattro insignia. Any suggestions also gratefully received.

Awesome, welcome! Why not start a thread for your car and upload some pics. I still have quite a few Coupe bits from my donor car, but none of the things you listed, sorry!

Cool! The comments about the odo were to do with a white Audi 90 Quattro that also came up for sale around the same time.
