Currently have 5 Audis

90 quattro, C4 A6, B5 A4, TT quattro Sport and A5 Cab

Worked out the other day they have a combined age of 93 years and a combined mileage of only 92K miles! I feel another group shot coming along.
Another Mk1 TT Quattro Sport owner on the forum... I bought my car just a couple of months ago.

80 Sports are hard to find they seem to have become a hit with the modifiers so most have been destroyed.

C36 is a nice motor but I would prefer a C32 Estate like this C32 Estate, same mate who worked for Audi had one when he worked for Smart a real sleeper, now if only it had been a manual
Knew of the C43 but had no idea the C32's existed as well, looks very interesting indeed, this 80 sport has been knocking about for a fair while now with the dealer, looks nice and real low mileage but I just cant seem to bring myself to liking the bloomin colour and a tad pricey as well, think it was on ebay several months ago for 3/4k as a private sale and even then i still couldn't convince myself over the colour

That B3 80 sport is a colour you would either love or hate, I actually want an B2 80 Sport even finding photos has been hard

I love the Cerise colour personally. That 80 Sport has been advertised at several dealers now none of whom actually have the car at their premises.

Excellent, well done. The pinnacle of the TT, a special car, sort of the MC-Victory of the TT. What colour is yours? Here is mine.

2005 Avus Silver, one owner, 6K miles.....

Wow, 6k miles is low!
My car is Mauritius Blue. I have both Recaro Pole positions and the comfort seats. Bought as a regular driver.
No pics yet, I've barely seen it in daylight since I bought it!

Yes, there is a story to the mileage but as you can imagine it is like new in every respect.

I too have both the Recaro PPs (factory colour coded Avus Silver) and comfort seats for my car. As you probably know if it was specified with comforts from the factory, as mine was, you will have heated seats as well. Many owners who specified PPs from new swapped them for comforts as they did not get on with the PPs, they are tricky to get in and out of and not that comfortable for all. Genuine PPs now fetch £1500.

One of these would make a great daily driver. I am thinking to get a highish miler cheap quattro Sport with PPs for just that and replace the PPs with a pair of TT Baseball stitch seats I have in black (very rare).

Almost bagged this puppy at the auction and wish I had now, you'd be lucky to find one at below 450k now

Only ever saw one SWB on the road, it was a Kawasaki Green colour on the Fountains Roundabout in Chester. I thought it looked so much better than the standard!

they are beautiful machines, only 200 made for Group B rally homologation and all left hookers, funnily enough Bonhams had a really nice White one a couple of years later that fetched I think about 250k, I knew I shouldn't of have listened to the wife who was prodding me in the ribs to stop bidding :hammer:

Yes, my car was specified with heated comfort Recaro. Currently fitted and working.
My Pole positions are coded with Mauritius blue (the correct Audi seats).
I used to have Poles in my GT3 CS, I found them very comfortable. Looking forward to fitting them.
