          What does r3v think of the B5 A4 Quattro 1.8T(AEB/AJL) with a real 5 speed manual?

            My mom has one, it's a big piece of shit. Granted, it's not the best cared for example, but it's still a big piece of shit. I keep hoping it'll catch fire so she can get something that goes more than a week without a CEL.

              Can you elaborate? What makes it a massive pile of shit?

              Specs on paper sound like a recipe for fun.

                My dad does all the maint on it, so I can't help too much with specifics, but for example, earlier this week I drove it. I made it to the first traffic light (1/4 mile), stopped, and noticed that it seemed to be running on 3cyl. I turned around, it sputtered/popped a bit, but seemed to have smoothed out after a block or so, so I tried again. Went through the light, went another 1/4 mile at most, before it started sputtering and popping again, turned around, AGAIN, and went home, with it running like shit the whole time. I thought it was gonna stall on me.

                I let my mom know what was up, but she apparently hasn't had any issues with it. In other words, it'll let you down at random. And I'm really not joking about the CEL coming on every other week. Seems like it's on for some reason every time I'm in it. I think my dad just gave up on it, honestly.

                From what he tells me, it's also a BITCH to work on. Not at all easy like an E30.

                But, like I said, not the best cared for example. A well maintained B5 A4 might be just fine. But I'll never get one, and I'd never recommend one.

                  Sounds like ignition control module, or a coil pack. Coils are like $30.

                    If you know how to put the car into service position, it is very easy to work on.

                    The entire front (bumper, support, radiatot) comes off within 20 minutes, exposing the engine almost completely.

                    If you find one in good condition, go for it. I built up one for a friend with a 2871 eliminator setup and rs4 clutch. That car was fun as hell. Put him into mid 13's IIRC and his was a Avant wagon 5 speed quattro.

                      Ahhhhhh i fucking love avants and especially the allroad. Pain in the ass to find stick though.....


                      Depending on the year you have all the same crap to worry about that VWs had which is usually just neglected tune ups/ service intervals and general maintenance. Its scary how few people realize what actually needs to be serviced on their cars and when then flip a shit that they need $700 worth of suspension parts after owning the car for 10 years.

                        My friend's B5 A4 actually did catch fire lol. But, it still drives and he bought a B5 S4 after that incident too.

                          Yea Audi/vw is notorious for coil packs igniting more than spark plugs. When I worked at VW we had a brand new Phaeton catch fire only a few weeks after it was sold. That guy was not happy.

                          I still love VAG though. Pun intended.

                            10 Cars that Refuse to Die -

                            BMW 3-Series


                            1982-1990

                            To the insiders, these are the E30 models. To a lot of people, they are the protypical yuppie-mobile. And while their original upwardly mobile professionals have moved on newer and larger BMWs (or, more likely, Lexuses), these models are still riding on, thanks mostly to their reasonable simplicity and a wide range of available parts -- though having the dealership keep it in as-it-came-from-the-factory condition is said by owners with experience to be an expensive fool's game.

                            There's even a racing series that features only this model car.
