Hi guys,

A close friend of mine is contemplating on getting the A4 (B5) within
this month.

Would appreciate if you could point out few links that might help in
choosing and knowing more of this species. He has around RM20k for d/p
and would stretch for a bit more to buy it cash if it`s within 30k+.
Previously drove a Mazda Lantis 1.6.
His other top choices are the C200 (W202) & S40. I did suggested the A4
before but he brushed off the idea too soon until he saw a recently a
sold off bodykitted A4 (W** 188) at 36k poster tag in Cheras. Which means
it went way cheaper.

1. Price range for the 96-98 (35k-55k?)
2. Spare or Used Parts availability (brand new or halfcut) is it common?
3. Common problems
4. Recommended mechanics
5. Upgrade options

I couldn`t seem to help him since I have been involved in mostly Japanese
(and national) makes. Btw, is there a BIG difference between the turbo
and the non-turbo version in terms of specs and accessories? What`s the
hp/torque comparison like?

Thanks a million.

He ended up with a C220 (W202) instead.
