My world of Automobiles

March 3, 2009 - Tuesday
New ride
I finally added another car to my collection today. This morning I ventured out and bought a 2001 black Audi Allroad with an amazing rare to North America, 6 Speed manual transmission. The Audi is super fast, has a 2,7 liter twin Turbo engine, excellent sleeper.I'm amazed at some of the extras that come with the Audi winter package. Front and back heated seats, heated steering wheel. Solar Sunroof (solar cells power the heater blower while the car is parked and turned off. This circulates heat as long as the engine is warm, or fresh air in the summer so you don't get toasted when the car sat in the sun for hours). This particular one was also chip tuned by the previous owner. The height level can be adjusted in 4 stages. Down like a regular wagon, all the way to high off the ground like a ford explorer. I will probably never need some of those functions, but they are all part of this model regardless. Further does the Audi have xenon headlights, 6 + 1 CD changer and many other goodies that are too much to list. I always wanted one of these Allroads, for one reason Audi is one of the top leading brands in reliability along with Volkswagen and Porsche. Now you know why I'm in business servicing and repair mainly Mercedes Benz. I'd go bankrupt specializing in Porsche, Audi and Volkswagen :-)The Passat wagon is now officially up for sale, it's a 2002 Passat wagon GLX 4Motion. (yes it's a four wheel drive) The car is fully loaded, leather, heated seats, moonroof and much more. The clock shows 108,000 miles. Doest leak a drop of oil and runs perfect. I put 30,000 miles on the Passat in 4 years and never had any problems with the car. I will post pictures of the Audi just as soon as the weather clears and I'll be able to clean her off.If you don't know what an Audi Allroad is, google "2001 Audi Allroad"-Martin
