Hi Steve

Having owned my present one for over 13 years, I've learnt a fair bit about them I suppose.

Of course I will say do it do it do it!

I could babble on, but recommend you visit quattroownersclub website to get an overview of the 3 'models' know by their engine codes.  

WR's are the earliest ones and go through to 1987 with 10 valve 5cyl turbo. These went through the most changes in terms of spec and 1 facelift to the front.  
MB's are from 1988 to 1989 (although E through to late reg G plates) and although still a 10v 5cyl Turbo and almost identical power outputs, these have quite a lot of differences to the earlier WR

2226cc instead of 2144 of WR, Torsen centre diff on 4wd instead of fixed split front/rear, different ECU, head, water cooled smaller turbo for less lag, first to have orange digi dash as per later 20v car and sunroof fitted as standard. Twin piston front brakes also. These are the main things, there are others, but in the detail.
RR's are the last version with the 20v twin cam 5cyl turbo. These engines are still very tuneable today. Engine apart, these are pretty much the same as the MB with some minor interior differences.

Which is best is down to personal opinion.  All have there own appeal, all are great. I suppose it is generally accepted the 20v is the best, having the most modern engine that's really reliable and more user friendly. 10v's are regarded as sou ding better, which I agree, especially with a miltek. They have that deeper 5cyl note. 20v's need the miltek too make them more like that just because the standard 20v is so quite and refined by comparison.

Buying one of these is a minefield if your not familiar with these.

In essence, I would say go for the best car available at the time of buying regardless of model or be prepared to wait for the right car in the model you want.

£13k is an excellent budget for a very good to excellent 10v, but mid range for a 20v. 20v's command the most money due to them being the last of their type and probably the best engine.

If you have that kind of money for one, avoid looking at anything sub £9k as it likely to need money spent, and that's where these cars can mug your bank balance.

I'll not put you off, because you have a great budget, but you will still have to be patient. All the really good ones are generally held on to, with the basket cases being passed around a lot more.

Mark's car on here is a rare example of what can be had, a MB that's had a professional 20v install done on a good base car to start with, so don't exclude a modded example if its been done right and still looks standard.
There's a couple of standard looking 20v's out there with over 400+ bhp and they only weigh 1300kg or so, they are nuts fast.

If your still interested , you can pm me your details and I can give you mor info if you want.
