Re: (a4forme)

fred, from personal experience, they are expensive whores...fun cars but every electrical part is specific to those cars, you can't just go to a junkyard for parts, you have to deal with people here on the vortex or ebay..and if i remember correctly, glen's car is a bit of a serious project. which you don't have the garage space for. I still say a mk2 or mk3 but what do I know. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Oh boy I am all over that. Just throwing one out there........I might need a L/F aluminum knuckle for a 2000 S4. Can you find out if they have one in stock. I won't know if I need it or not until I do my lower control arm. Last time when I did my wheel bearing on that side the sleeve that the ball joint goes into came out still on the control arm, and I can't remember which control arm it was.

Re: (CorradoG602)

do it fred- just stay away from the 1.8T swap , haha

my new rally car is a corrado- someone said to me- "but you know how reliable they are right???"
my response.. "not to worry, its getting all mk3 parts, the only thing "corrado" about it is the shell"

you guys are babies. rados are fine, just maintain them like you should any car. dont neglect them and expect them to drive like a mk3 2 liter...forever with no oil for example

i am looking like 3 times a day, and cant find any that are worth the asking price. i even look at ones that are a bit more with low miles, and still find bodywork and rust on them. i cant win.

yeah, yours never had any reliability issues for the 3 years it sat next to your house

fred, how much have you driven a TDI? they're great on mileage but I think you'd get bored...they're slow, despite all the torque. I was driving an 05 mk5 Jetta TDI a few weeks ago, took it from RI to Portland ME and got 40.3mpg going 90mph. Nice car, but slooooow to accelerate on the highway.
