      1999 1.8t Quattro from purchase up to this point of being fully functional has been.. wait for it... $1,800
      Ya... talk about pulling off a low budget build. Why buy a new turbo when u can just weld the pieces of the old broken one back together!
      Car was $1,500.
      Gutted the cat for free
      Oil cooler, sensors, lines, and some odds and ends ran about $300 new.
