Hello from a quattro brainwashed nut...

OK, ntrly. but I guess mostly true. I've been working on and driving VAG cars since the mid 80's. Currently own. 3 B5 Chassis A4's (2 30V V6's and one a project, former 1.8T, waiting for a VR6 with BAT swap), 1 C4 Chassi A6 and a little white Ford/Mazda Currier Pickup.

Anyway I've been working on a 2003 B6 Chassis A4 Tip, Quattro, Sport. Finally got the car 100% for the owner and now he wants me to start in on a plan to get his 1999MY C230K up to par like I did with the Audi. Starting out with meeting the car later today and taking it for *my* 1st ride. So far he says there is sluggish shifting and that is about it. Looking very forward to knowing and mastering the W202. I know it will take time and I look forward to presenting my take with fresh eyes and hopefully your support. I do write ups and document very well. If you ever want to see my style I can show you lots of links from past posts, quattroworld's WiKi, etc.

Best Regards,

Brad (In Montana)

It all went smooth. In fact I love the W202 chassis. A joy to work on coming from B4-B7 Audi/VW builds. Only issue was the stuck drain plug in that *shushbox*. Really wish I could have experienced that with a 5MT but the Auto wasn't bad after I got it filled with fresh MB fluid and revere-engineered the dipstick they don't give you. At least they build a tube up for you, during that era the Audis don't even do that but it does make it easier to verify the correct fluid as you have direct access to the side of the trans. Anyway don't want to confuse things with VAG/MB speak in the same post.

And after I gave it back (was running not so well when I got it) the owner said "my new favorite car again (with a big smile)" of his 1999MY C230 K Sport. That means his '03MY B6 Audi Avant, also running very well, has been displaced by the Benz for now anyway. hehe.

Anyway, those are the words you want to hear after giving a car back to the owner
