A mate has recently been to see that white Quattro,  said some panels were rippled,  with filler in places,  and not running right as it was totally gutless.  Didn't seem to want to budge on the price yet offered peanuts for the S4 that was being offered as part ex.

Cheers for the input Norrs, I absolutely love your car beautiful !! I am trying to build my dream garage collection consisting of my B5 RS4, a nice UR Quattro and an RS2 although I've never seem a white one before which doesn't matter as I favour the Ragusa Green. I'm moving house this year and have already designed the garage around these cars. Another good thing I noticed the garage is called Volkservice which would point to these chap mainly looking after VAG cars, the car is in Blackpool are any if you UR guys in that area? Again getting ahead of myself as I'm not home until the 11th of March by which time the car will no doubt be sold, if it's not I will buy it if it's as good as it looks.
P.S my Dad had a couple of these in the eights the first he bought brand new from Hawco up North, red with black leather I still remember the reg C100YST is there a register on here with existing UR's
Cheers lads

Cheers Lewis!

After seeing Mikey's post (well done for that), run a mile from this car.  Mechanicals can be relatively easy to fix, but a Pearl White car with 'ripples and filler' spells future disaster and big ££££ for proper repairs and paint. To do a proper Pearl job with the 'correct' base coat (it's a 3 stage - Base/Pearl/Clear)is about £1,200 in materials alone.  Shame, this car looked promising.  It's also not worth anything like that given what Mikey's mate saw.

On the RS2 subject, there is 1 only Pearl White UK car.  It was actually sold by Hawco in Inverness.  The car was also sold as a used car there back in 2002.  I was desperate for it but coudn't afford it at the time.  It's now in the south of England somewhere.

In respect of finding you a ur, I will keep a look out on the quattro owners club forum (members only access unfortunately) as good members cars with all the required history pop up from time to time and a much better bet than something from a car dealer.  A good quattro will give you mostly trouble free motoring, a bad one will mug your bank account.  If you were looking at this car at that value, that is an excellent budget to get a proper mint 10v WR/MB car with none of the issues of this one.

There's quite a few differences between the 10 valve WR and MB (MB is much less laggy), this thread will explain them:-

Will keep my eye open for you mate.

PS, is there a colour preference or any no no's?

I want one  

Get it, you'll love it.


That looks like a very nice Tornado Red there!!  Is it a 20v RR?

It's a 10v MB and now long out of my ownership. I still get goosebumps thinking about it.

Lewis

Don't know how you are about colours yet, but I just had a brain fart and remembered that a mate of mine in the qoc was going to sell his for about the same money as the Pearl one.  He's had it for years, it's had a proper bare shell repaint about 4 years ago and is still totally rust free which is testament that it was done properly. It's wanted for nothing and is sound mechanically too.  John the owner has total OCD and the car is totally mint.  Only non standard thing on it, is the Steering Wheel from a 20v (which is nice) and a SS Sport Exhaust. It's quite a rare colour - Lago Blue Met.  It's the rarest MB 10v Model.

Anyway, here's some recent pics and if you're interested (as it's not currently been advertised) I can give him a shout for you.  I know he still has it.

Yes and no. I really didn't have the space. Although it was garaged I was way too paranoid of driving it and panicked if anyone came near.

I remember shouting mentally at someone at work who placed his motorbike helmet on the bonnet while he got ready to mount!! I swore a lot!!
Then my Daughters friend opened up a can of Coke in the back and I overreacted slightly  

What I would say to anyone thinking of getting one is to research your prey. Not just the car but the current owner or company it's for sale with. Some background of their sales history or maybe what they do for a living.

Have they been able to afford the upkeep or pay for genuine parts when required? These aren't cars to run on a budget so I'd like to see that it has been kept in a style to which it should be accustomed to.

Check check and check again.

A proper quattro nut then!!

I can only imagine your reaction at the biker foolishly doing that.  

Yes, all very good advice there!  

The car I posted above fits all that criteria, it's a well know car in the quattro community and the owner has spared no expense maintaining it to the highest standard, so I can fully endorse this car based on my knowledge of it.
