    ...well to give you an idea. i bought mine a year ago non-ram air with 111k mi for 7 grand and i thought it was a steel.

    I would say as long as it not beat up to hell or owned by a 17yr old sounds good.

    A4 or M6?

    Did the current owner do regular maintenance? Is the body and interior in good shape? Did you find out if anything is wrong with it? Sounds like a good deal.......if everything checks out.

    Run a Carfax for sure. When I was first looking to buy mine, I ran across one that was a super good deal. Called the guy up and asked all the normal questions and also asked if the title was clean. Turns out it was salvaged. Now don't get me wrong, I worked at a shop for years and if the car is rebuilt correctly, there's nothing to worry about.................except resale. It's just too hard to sell them when they are stamped salvage.

    If everything seems ok with the car, sounds like a pretty good deal.

    I really wanted the regular Ram Air hood, but for the price in this area I couldn't beat it. A ws.6 a4 for like $90 every 2 weeks....I thought about it for a day then jumped on it cuz I didn't want it to be gone the next time I went past To think...I called just to get a price and I really didn't plan on buyin a car

    My a4 02 Grand Am GT was "safe power", but when I got this thing on the open highway I think I almost suffered whiplash . This car is one hell of a rush!!!!

    I love the Raptor hood. Its a nice change from all the WS6 hoods u see on TAs and Formulas that everyone gets. I dont hate the WS6 hood, it just know for a fact that its much more common than the Raptor

    Good Buy!
    But is it a Real WS6 ?
    Check the driver door for the RPO Sheet.
    And if it is a real WS6 Why does it have a Raptor Hood on it instead of the Factory Ram Air Hood ?

    Buy it! I've got 130,000 on mine and she purrs like a kitten and roars like a lion. This could be a great project car for you. If your planning to put some modes, it doesn't matter on the miles as long as you compliment your modifications with the essentials to run strong.

    Just Curious,
    What do I look for on the door RPO sheet? From what I was told...the car was a locally owned car and garaged a lot. The previous owner didn't expose it much to the elements but did make a few mods.
