I have set a goal for myself this summer, I want an A4. IMO they are the best looking cars on the roads today. I am looking for a 98-00 A4 1.8T. I am wondering if anyone here has one or has had one. Wht type of problems will I run into and what should I look for when I do go to buy it? A friend of mine just got an S4 and she used to have an A4 1.8T but it was an auto, I would ask her but she has no clue about cars or anything close. When she got her S4 there was a notice in her glove box that said "the oil splurge problem has been fixed" I called the dealership and asked about it but no one could answer my question. I think it might be a joke but you never know. If anyone has had one and was happy with or un happy with it please post a reply. I've been doing research and I am prepared for the increase in fuel consumption and costly repairs. But anyother info would be great. Thanks.
