1991 Audi 200 quattro
Sold October 2010 @ 129k
Bamboo in color. Not so high visibility. Rather stealthy, in fact.
Came to me in October 1997 with 78,783 miles already on it. As far as I can tell, all original engine and transmission (except
of course normal maintenance items like belts and plugs). Previous owners
were a United pilot in Jackson, the service manager at the Audi dealer
(yes!), and a Jackson realtor.
A few little dings on the door "character lines", a crease on the rear
passenger door, but the original wheels are there, and the engine...
Out of the box, the car has a turbocharged/intercooled dual overhead
cam 2.2 liter inline 5-cylinder engine (code 3B) rated at 217hp @5700RPM, 228lb/ft
@1950RPM (at sea level). Bosch Motronic electronic fuel injection with
electronic feedback control, oxygen sensor, selective knock-sensing electronic
ignition. 5-speed manual transmission, Quattro all-wheel-drive with Torsen
torque-sensing center differential. Ok, it still has the original engine
(I've only chipped it) but I feel the need to play
with some accessories:
Next-on-the-list in the future:
For winter fun: Audi OEM 15x7 steel wheels (from Tire Rack) with studded 195/65-15 Nokian Hakkapellita-1s, the best snow tires in
the world (just ask me).
Euro-spec aero headlights to replace the poor US-spec aero units.
Seeing at night is great! I like.
New stereo! Replacing the difficult-to-replace Bose factory unit because
it had no CD. I got a Kenwood head unit and 10-cd changer, 4x80w amp, and
Polk speakers. Really in depth report. Added a little later: 8" Bazooka tube and 1x120w amp
Bilstein Sport struts/shocks with stock springs from RSI. No more bouncio. p/n P36-0370 front, B46-2065 rear
Driver's-door-hinge-area wires replaced with non-cracked new ones, watch for picture of yucky old wires sometime. Not sure that's an accessory, but might as well throw in the new windshield I got instead of a tint job. Maybe next summer...nope, did passenger door wires instead (think it was the window switch in driver's door though). And then trunk wires!
"chip" modification - whee! Thanks Chris Miller for arranging the group purchase of Hoppen chips through Anderson Motorsport
Coming up in the more remote future:
On the summer wheels (BBS RG), I got 215/60r15 Eagle Aquatreads. Hope these
wear out soon so I can try some sticky rubber.

Scorpion or Stebro stainless cat-back exhaust - one original muffler has
a couple pinholes in the outer can, hopefully won't fall off or anything
before I get around to this replacement.
RS2 (a Porsche-tuned Audi quattro) turbo (maybe) and exhaust
manifold - even more whee!
There is a 200q20v registry
at s-cars - hmm, seems to be starting over with "registered" members.
There is also a 200q20v mailing list. [moved to audifans server]
News sites: audiworld (has a registry as well) and VWvortex
And the Audi newsgroup of course.
