    Default Black 2000 A4 B5 1.8TQ Owner

    Hello all,
    I've had my b5 1.8tq for a few months now, sadly it was involved in accident caused by someone not giving way to be as i exited a roundabout and it was declared a total loss.
    Was and still is a beautiful car though, left me gutted and still am. Previous owner claimed it was stock but upon further inspection it has a 2.5" catback (Scorpion exhaust, quiet but decent tone from outside) and it drives like it has had a tune due to very aggressive boost compared to other cars I've driven. I'm leaning towards fixing it as I genuinely do love the car and it drove better and has an interior in better condition than every other b5 I've personally seen and even drove better than a couple 8l S3's I considered. It is also free from any VIV's due to being older than 15 years old.
    Pics are how it was before the crash.

    Same as mine, bought it new and still have it with 130K on the clock. Great car and I can understand that you would want to keep it but according to the market, worth nothing. Repairing could be very expensive unless you can pick up the parts from a wrecker or a cheap complete doner car. If you are flush enough to write off the cost of repair then by all means, otherwise you might want to look at other options.

    I have found a donor car but I've been quoted ~3-3.5k to fix the damage. Sorta sucks.

    Depends on what you can do yourself. Otherwise, wages are wages etc. Nothing comes cheap in the Audi world.

    Update: Decided to buy the donor car and have fully disassembled my front end. Changed my snub mount to an 034Motorsports one while I'm there, along with all of my belts just as preventative maintenance. I also had to replace my intercooler, radiator support, washer fluid tank, and a few other little bits and pieces however, those all were taken from the donor car. The rail where the fender sits is 100% straight however my lower chassis rails are both moved by roughly 2cm down and left so i'm unable to bolt my radiator support back on. I'll be sending off my car to a shop to finish off the rest which would essentially be just straightening out the the lower rails and bolting my complete new radiator support (with all the necessary parts already bolted onto the support, only need to connect them to the car) and my front bar. My car should be back on the road soon.

    And she's done. This is a delayed update as she was finished roughly 2 weeks ago but the TQ is back on the road, running better than ever and the panel gaps better or the same as they were before the crash.

    On a side note, I have my spare parts up for sale, all unused from the donor car. Everything you see is up for sale with a bunch more mechanical pieces placed inside the car including a radiator and the car has the stock exhaust setup still available. The car was a facelift 1.8tq. PM or reply for more info. PS the cupholder seems to be jammed sadly but the surrounding trim for the radio (not shown) is available.

    Good Job. Another B5 saved. Hope the whole job came in at a reasonable price.
