HMC motors- Jag s type R


HMC

Recommended Posts

This streetwise has, for the token sensible/ modernish fleet presence that it is, not been exactly trouble free. The charging issues are now banished but the recent mot exhaust “advisory” has now developed into full on banger droning.

The back box and middle bit (technical term) were a bit rotten so I had them replaced today.

“Minor” exhaust trouble, with the streetwise (at rear)

I think Audi reached their styling high point in the late 90s. Stylish, tasteful, timeless and no dog-eating grill. This was the time when Audi marketed themselves as the Anti-BMW. How times have changed.

Looking good. Not really a fan of german cars but this looks understated and not shouty. What engine does this have? Good luck with it. Love the colour

It’s the 2.8 and fwd rather than 4wd. With 193bhp it’s nowhere near as rapid as the v8 Quattros but it’s not particularly slow.

Thats still enough, Nigh on 200bhp is still plenty in the real world. I can see the 2.8 badge now. Was on my phone so couldnt see. still looks a nice car though

Another D2 owner, excellent. Without wanting to ruin the party, make sure the gearbox has been serviced and google for "botangs hole" (can't promise all results are sfw). You will thank me later.

Yeah the previous owner was on that, thankfully.

Nice! My old man had a 4.2 Quattro for a little while. I remember it being very big and very fast. Is this just about the last Audi that’s big and fast that could still be owned by a gentleman?
