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.


Damn, you've got me looking at them again now..!

The thing about ur's at the moment, is that they seem to have dried up in terms of availability.  There hasn't really been that much out there for about a year now.

'Good' 10 valve cars have gone up by about 50% in the last 18 months. Where you could get a very good restored MB 2 years ago for £10k, you're now looking at £15+ for the same car.  

Good 20 valve cars are now in the low to mid £20+k bracket.  I know of a Tornado Red one in Aberdeen at the moment with about 70k miles on it, totally orginal mint condition, and the owner want's £26k or he's not selling!

The trouble is, all the best ones are in current ownership and not for sale.  Prices are now encouraging some folk to tart up the lesser ones (like the Pearl one here) with a potential multitude of sins under the freshly painted body, and asking top money.  Hence, you have to tread very carefully indeed as you know.  Parts cars are even £5k these days!!  

Still though, there doesn't seem to be all that many of any condition to choose from right now, and prices will continue to creep up for the best ones.

Unfortunately nothing very comprehensive or live out there.  A few have tried in the past but pretty much failed.

If you have any details (model - WR or MB) colour and reg number, I could post on the qoc forum to see if anyone on there has it.

For refererence, of the approx 2,500 RHD quattro's imported into the UK, rough estimates are that less than 1,000 still exist, of which many are not on the road and some will be beyond economical repair.

Regarding the car that the OP has asked about, some things don't seem correct to me .. The headlight washers look odd for that year of car, as does the boot lid - of the '86/87 year cars I had experience with, the washers were more of a small 'over-rider' design and the boot had 2x black badges, not a sticker.
It could well be the pictures and how they are being seen on my PC, but the car looks more alpine white than pearl

You are of course totally correct on both counts, well spotted indeed. Washers should be as the pictures of the other cars on this thread.  That quattro badge on the back is from pre-85 facelift models.

That car should have 2  plastic badges (with a black or silver face) at the back (Audi on the left, quattro on the right), with no Audi rings in the centre.

MB's have 3 Chrome badges which includes the 4 rings in the centre and 20v RR's only have the 4 rings in the centre of the boot with no other badges.

Post 85, it's actually the only way to know which model it is for cross over registrations, i.e.   a D plate can be a WR or MB (also a few Eplate WR's out there) and a G plate can be a MB or a RR.  Badges on the boot will be the only give away externally.

Sad news is it's not currently showing as taxed on that reg number, DVLA website doesn't recognise the number.  It could be out there on a private plate though.

Thats a shame. I think the private plate theory is likely however .. the then new owner seemed to be really taking care of it, although it was many years ago now.
Thank you for looking anyway.

Actually, i think you're correct, I was thinking more about E plate WR's.

No mate, Gail's is zermatt silver on a C plate (WR).  This is John Johnson from Sheffield that bought and sold to Stuart's mate's the  Avus RS.

It's a peach ur for sure!
