      Sweet! Where did you get that rear spoiler? Is it an original Audi V8 DTM edition spoiler?

      good for you!

      everyone has there own style, and i find it funny that all of you audi elitist pricks dog on anyone that dose something different or out of the norm.

      These cars are so rare, and respond so well to a conservative wheel/tire and suspension treatment, that I don't like to see one dropped and rolling on flashy wheels. Most of the enthusiast community built around old Audis focuses on maintenance, power upgrades, and track-worthy suspension and brake work- so don't be surprised if they look askance at your car.

      That said, you'll find motorgeek and audiworld to be great resources if you ever need mechanical help; something along the lines that I previously mentioned. Maybe there will even be somebody open to the idea of helping you fix your car and its broken springs.

      im on motorgeek and they have all already told me how effed my k rates are and all that dumb junk.

      my car works great, and nothing as far as suspension for these cars go low enough for me, other than air of course, but i dont have the moneys for that.

      sorry its different from the norm guys, but i dont see these cars as performance vehicles at all, they are boats, and it needed to be dropped on its nutz, and guess what ... it isnt changing, other than getting lower, thats the only work the suspension is going to get.

      hate hate hate hate hate

      i like what i have.

      Here's mine. 1981 5000 Turbo. FWD. Auto 3spd. Doesn't get driven much. Just "saving" it.




      I also have an '87 Audi 5000 Turbo Quattro CD Avant 5spd that isn't so pretty

      My whole point is you can get the car low the rite way! Cutting springs are a bad idea. Since you cut the springs I would imagine your still running the OE shocks? I would expect you to totaly wear the shocks out in a NY minute. Allong with other suspension components.
      Your going to destroy that car. But if thats your intensions..........

      As to low..well here's a pic of my V8 before I adjusted it. The car could have went @ least another 3/4 or 1' more. But it's done the rite way.

      if you ever sell that... PM me.

      Honestly I seen your car when the new owner had it.. I had to replace the right rear window lifter.. and wow yeah its a 5000 but was no really impressed.. don't take it personally. But when I seen the pics with the great rims and all.. I was expecting better.. and when I seen it. I was like meh.

      But yeah you should get another 5000's but this time look for something a bit better...

      My 5000 needs work as well.. I just don't have the time. I got soo many things running at once in my life that I don't know when I will even have time for it but I will soon I hope

      I told my self many times. I need to put a bit of work in it.. or move on but I just can't seem to move on.. but don't find time to put work into it


    23. 03-24-2009 03:46 PM #58
      Honestly.. for the amount of Km's it had.. it was nice. But i mean .. 5000's are an aquired taste as far as looks go. I dig em. But the ride quality and overall comfort of the cars are whats it's all about.
      I was big on the Speed that it had. Running away from S4's, Caymens, Mustangs and Corvettes was always a laugh. And as a whole combo.. one of my favorite cars.

      yeah I heard urs was really fast from the new owner. Also I love my 5000 as well But how much K's did urs have?


    25. 03-24-2009 04:00 PM #60
      330k+ Km's
      Yeah i had a 2.0bar Chip, 2.2bar Wastegate spring and a Stg 2 Kevlar Clutch in it. THAT is what made the car... not the rims or anything else... those were just for looks

      this is my 1987 Audi 5000 S quattro. i have a 91 v8 parts car that is being raped of any and all useful parts. Its sweet.

      when i bought it.


      now, the work in progress.


    30. 04-18-2009 11:51 PM #65
      Just joined the forum this evening. My 89 200TQA has been dormant for 5 years due to leaky PS, etc. Fogot to do non-Op with DMV so by the time I ressurected her, nearly $800 in fees plus new hoses everywhere and rebuilt rack. It's like I bought her all over again. Nevertheless, her she is ready to party.

      wow man thats all what I can say. That car is wow. Looking good man. I almost bought one 2 years ago with something like 78K on it. But the deal slipped through cuz I could not get my hands on a trailer to bring it home.

      You know with my old audi (87 audi 5000s Q) some days I am like Fudge I will sell it cuz I don't drive it any more and don't have time to fix the few things it needs. Other days I am like I am NEVER selling it. I saved up sooo much sick parts for it. Rims, s4 steering wheel, deck, etc etc etc. And it was my first car I got years ago. And it was really hard for me to find. Cuz I wanted an "S quattro" not "CS or CD quattro". And I know for the next few months I will not be able to touch it cuz I am starting to work 7 days a week :S Maybe late nights? Maybe.
