    Thread: My new to me A8 D2 3.7 Quattro Sport

    1. 01-17-2012 06:55 AM #1
      Its been a long time since I posted here,

      A couple of weeks ago I picked up a 2001 facelift D2 with 173,000 miles on the clock. I got the car cheap as it was due a cambelt change and needed a service and the front suspension sorting.

      Car is going into a local specialist on Thursday to have all the above fixed then she should drive smoothly with no sound from the front suspension.

      Only worry for me now is the 5 speed auto box, I can find no record of the box having been replaced or even an oil change, and its in failure terrirtory.

      I'll post a few pictures shortly.

      Very nice looking, thanks for sharing! We only had the 3.7L models here in the North American market for 1997-98 and those were all front wheel drive without tiptronic.

      I'm curious, you say that you got the car 'cheap'. Can you put a figure to that?

      A timing belt & control arms are going to be pretty pricey. Last time I checked if you were to have that done at a shop you could expect to spend $1500 for the belt job, and probably another $1000 for the front control arms (all 8 parts) to be replaced.
