Yup, it is...I just noticed that today when I was doing a intial clean and closer inspection. It needs some love and attention but the miles are
low by My standards, the underbody is in really great shape plus I finally have another audi again that won't need a "Team Door Handle" bumper
sticker...should have a starter swapped in by the end of the week.

Holy Crap!! Threw a starter in from another MG'r, (Thanks Rob) connected wires....turned key and it just started right up as in it really just started up on the first try after
sitting for the better part of a year. Idle? Yup!! She settled right down and marked time like a friggin metronome. Everything works except the windows but that is a given
on a old Audi...shouldn't even have to mention that it's pretty much any Audi ya buy has a window isssue of one sort or another but then I digress...Anyway I'm Happy!!

I sold the stock 10vt wheels to a friend of mine for his B5 passat. He uses them as light weight wheels for his TDI. Hes trying to make the car super mpg efficient.

Those wheels look great on the passat though!

Thats a great find! wished i could find more around here...

Your talking about the basket weaves? IDK...never been a huge fan of 'em but I actually do like them in the pearl color with the pearl body. Then again I didn't like the fuchs that came
with My 5KTQ until I took them off for the first and realized how light they really are and now I'm a big fan of them.

Slapped some plates on the 90 200 today at My Buddies house and drove it home 10-15 miles to the condo. Ran very nice except I figured out the alternator was giving up the ghost. Boost was very good and clutch was solid but the seat of My pants tells Me the 5K yanks way harder and the clutch grabs way quicker (remeber that from the first time I drove it.)...pretty sure it isn't OEM. Whoever had the 5K before Me was rumored to have dropped a good bit of coin on the engine internals and clutch...needless to say I'm happy anyways.
