Finally back in an Audi after a few years in VW's. I've always had a thing for the B5 shape, my first VAG was a silver A4 1.8 non turbo and while the B5 S4's are coming down in price so quickly, i'm just too scared to own one due to the potential servicing costs. Being a daily driver and having no garage space, it will live outside for much of my time owning it so the next best thing was this.

One of the MTM chipped 1.8T A4's, this one is the 210hp units. Stage 2 MTM chip and MTM catback. Has had only 1 owner since new, FSH and it runs like a dream.



Next step is to tidy it up a bit, refurb the OZ wheels and a slight drop in ride height.

Very nice - I had my eye on that one too. Does it go/handle well? Should have a good bit of poke with MTM stage II.

Thanks i'm really stoked with it, when I spoke to the previous owner the day before the auction ended he said he had 100+ 'watchers' but not one person came and looked at it. I didn't have a TM account and I was out of town so had to sweat it out until the auction ended and surprisingly it didn't sell so I drove to his house the following day and made a cash offer that was accepted.

It goes really well, i've only got two points of comparison which was my mk4 GTI (150hp AGU) and mk6 GTI (208ish hp) and while the A4 is quite sluggish taking off, it does pull very nicely from 3rd and it is so smooth in doing so, good power delivery. I think it needs a bit more low as it does still wallow a bit. I've not owned a quattro before so i'm taking it a bit easy until i'm quite familiar with the car's driveability.

I haven't looked into too carefully, but in ours (stage 1 AJL - 187hp) it's pretty dead below about 1500rpm, pulls well from 2500 up to around 4500 then tapers off up to the red line. Yours should have a bit more pull up top than our stage 1 car but is probably similar down low.

Well I couldn't resist when Tom's (djrisk) car came up for sale - after a week of laying low I decided to go and have a look yesterday. And what a great little car it turned out to be. An absolute credit to Tom and the resources he put into maintaining it for the 9 years he owned it. All the mods work perfectly, and it drives superbly. Cosmetically the exterior is showing its age, but the interior is in good nick and that's more important for me. The exhaust is very subtle but sounds great, the suspension is surprisingly compliant and well planted and I love those BBS wheels! No plans at this stage other than to drive and maintain it.

At home in the rain:

Thanks guys. Yes Nik, 4 Audi's now - plenty of off street parking at my place! Now thinking about carport options again as only 3 cars under cover at the moment.
