      I thought the shifter was too low at first too. I've gotten used to it and actually enjoy the height now but I'm also only 5'9 :laugh: VW/Audi cars always have the shifter up higher which was my...

      FWD? Maintenance records or offer $2000. If the control arms, water pump, clutch, timing belt components haven't been done? Walk. Seriously, these cars will dig you into a hellstorm of debt and...

      I breached 17k the past week and it still drives an frantic and crisp as day 1! Little squeak from the brake pedal at times but other than that its been a fantastic car.

      I think this is every how every B5 A4 story goes! Purchase it as a heap, replace everything, sell because you are sick of working on it :laugh:

      I've considered it. However for it to be a great swap you would need to swap in an 01E 6 speed box which adds a whole new bunch of cost into the mix. The right move is to sell the A4! :laugh:

      Currently an owner of a 1.8t, it indeed sucks compared to modern turbo cars. Doesn't sound good, spool up generally sucks (on the stock turbo anyway) and the motor leaks like an old man. You want to...

      You have to be a troll. What is there to train? You yield to whom ever is in the roundabout. That is pretty much it.

      I will say that I like the FiST clutch and shifter way more than any VAG product I've owned. Except maybe my mkIII Jetta which the clutch was cable driven and not hydraulic.

      I came from a mkV Rabbit/b5 a4 and certainly noticed the dip in interior quality. The dash looks like egg crate at times but does have a nice soft feel to it. After 1 year of ownership, I can say I...

      I would be using mine as a weekend driver as well since my daily commute is 50 miles round trip and the Fiesta is perfect for that. But the beetles are such a blast to drive! And way more interesting...

      The more I see/read about classic bugs, the more I want to sell off the B5 A4 and pick one up! Ideally, I'd like a 66 with a DP1600 and a 12v conversion. I really like the idea of the SB's having...

      If you are serious, stick to the 2008+ models. However even now a days most of those cars are seeing higher mileage and the timing chains aren't an easily serviceable item. Which is a shame, the 2.5...

      Sorry, deleted my original post before you posted this. At 143KM(89k miles) I don't think the problem will be a stretched chain or guide problem. However, if it matched the youtube vid noise then you...

      65-66 has better accent bits: side air ducts, the rear C pillar louvers, the arguably better front grill. That cross hair they went to in 67 with the bigger grill is a step back imo.
