We all love Audi's on here don't we?

 

Oh Yeah...……………..

 

Anyhow this looks alright. Quattro as well so big skids in the snow.

Can confirm. I used to have a 1.8T quattro sport saloon and it was hilarious fun in the snow.

 

It was also a complete and utter moneypit in every other way though. Not with somebody else's barge pole.

'Factory fitted Porsche engine' - er no, it says 'System Porsche' on the rocker cover because they were paid a consultancy fee during the design of the cylinder head.

 

'Limited Edition' - er no again, it's a normal top of the range GLX by the looks of things

 

Still nice but better if folks knew what they were selling.

Hell this looks cheap! Cambelt not quite due, MOT history reasonable...nice spec, probably something somewhere broken or waiting to break.

More to the point they've paid for that advert, who bothers paying for adverts for sub £500 cars on Auto Trader?!

More to the point get it bought! Xantias can wait!

 

Also, where the fuck do they live? Some kind of mock tudor beetlejuice town?

This is the best picture in the ad!  Remarkably, despite being photographed in something that looks very much like a barn, the magic words "barn find" don't appear in the description!

What's the red one?  At first I thought R-send of a Sud but having googled I don't think it is....

It is a future classic though! One for the things in adverts that piss you off thread.

I have owned an activa tct and currently own a bangeromics 1.9 td which is at the stage with 4 weeks MOT left and a list of jobs needing doing that will cost 3 times its value. A v6 auto in the condition is the only xantia I would consider. If I were to buy that one , lovely car as it it, I would hate it because it is only a 2.0sx not a 3.0 exclusive.

I rate the 2.0 litre XU10, my old 405 had it and the auto box, and they're effortless. The Xantia leathers are better too.

 

Also regarding Xantias...both my early ones have had issues, the first so bad I scrapped it. The only newer one I've had was fine. Broke on both it's next owners though.

My xantia has been retrofitted with leathers and its spheres only about 2 years old and it is the comfiest car I have ever owned. Biggest problem is it needs the 3 possible worst jobs for me not to do so I will need to pey for them, a fuel pump, probably leaking due to veg, a clutch, and heater matrix. Im gonna chuck it in for a test to see what happens. If it passes then the clutch and matrix may well last another year, but I suspect a fuel leak will fail.

If I wasn't so intent on only buying dailies from here from now on...I'd happily buy this. Yeah it looks crap but you could treat it like shit and not worry.

Also my other half HATES people carriers. She will think me buying it would be a hint for kids...
