I see these threads are pretty in active but I hate just joining tons of forums and then not even ending up using them.
So I am moving out west in a week for a job promotion, I am leaving my faithful 292k mk4 jetta TDI behind in NY. I have a work vehicle so it was not imperative that I brought it with me. I have been driving the TDI for about 5 years now. I am looking to get into something bit more sporty. So I have been trying to gather up a list of my potential cars to purchase as my weekend/random week night whip. Has to be manual, prefer AWD, under 10g, and be cool(to me atleast).
Well I thought maybe something subaru but I kinda get sick of seeing WRXs everywhere, if they only sold 5 spd SVXs!!! Then I thought maybe an audi, a kid I knew had a b5 S4 and said it was nothing but headaches, so did a friend with a 1.8t B5. Then I thought maybe B6 but I think they are a bit too new for me and too much like my Jetta in looks. so I recently saw a few URS4s for sale and starting really thinking about it.
The past few days I have been doing a lot of research on the cars. The majority of the URs I see are very high mileage which is very encouraging! Most of the info I have read says they are pretty bullet proof, a bit on the heavy side, but great runners. Like I said I wont be daily driving it, mainly for weekend trips and maybe the occasional date during the week haha. So I have my eye on a low mileage(140k haha), in black, for around 4k. That is low mileage for what I have seen, I love black cars, and the price seems fair for the rarity of the car. They are pretty classy sleepers!! So do you guys have any extra info for me? Any insight? Pic for clicks!
