Default Sim got an Audi

I caved, got an import. I've always been a fan of Audi's styling so I figured this would be cool.

It's a 1988 90. Has a 2.3L 5 cylinder, and it's a 5 speed. Not quattro so its FWD

Doesn't stay running on it's own. Needs a fuel pump or something, it keeps cutting out and runs rough.

Gotta gut the interior and give everything a power wash. It smells awful. It sat for a while so rats got in it :/

I'll get pics once the weather clears up

nice I actually was just looking at a Audi A4 Quatro S-line for the wife earlier this week. Love Audi's great quality unlike Volvo.

Yeah I've heard great things about them, so I have pretty high hopes for it after I get it running.

The windshield leaks :/ There's a nice puddle on the floor passenger side. Still didn't get it running. Had to cut a gas line to get the filter off, the nuts were seized up pretty bad. Ordering my fuel pump today

You seem to have issues buying and owning cars and getting/keeping them in running shape.

Don't feel too bad, I had a 29K mile 05' Chevy Colorado with more problems than your Audi. Leaky windshield too.

I bought it like this Anyone who knows me knows I can't pass a project up! But yeah, the leaky windshield is kind of a buzzkill. Probably going to just part it out on ebay if I can't get it running when my FP gets in.
