General History

This car was originally purchased by my grandfather in Spring 1991. I "inherited" it in November 1998 when he purchased his 1999 A8. This was my second car.

It has not been in any accidents, although it apparently was damaged in transit prior to being delivered, and it looks like the passenger side front door was repainted and the window may have been replaced. It's a good match, however, because nobody noticed it for more than a decade. Also, the underside of the right edge of the front bumper was repainted by my grandfather after it was scratched. It looks fine from a distance, but up close (if you get on your hands and knees) it looks pretty bad.

I added the European headlights in April 2002, the Chinese-market (Audi 100 Sport style) front clear corner lights in March 2003, and the Custom Auto Craft V8 (Luxembourg-style) tail lights in April 2003.

Mechanically and physically, the car is in great shape. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the car, other than minor chips (and minor dings) in the body, to be expected on a car of its age.
