    sounds kinda fishy. Are you the 2nd,3rd,4th owner?? Seems liek the previous owner(s) beat the hell outta it. Why would u change an engine at just 87K?? Well as long as it runs good and ur happy, thats all that matters. $9200 sounds pretty decnet. What options does it have? does it have TC, 12 disc changer???? Black on Black, 6spd?? Tell us a little bit more, so next time u wanna know where to start modding, well tell u what to get if its an M6 or A4.

    "my dad works for the IRS so he did a complete background check to see if the guy did have a heart attack nd if the engine came new nd all that nd it came back lagit"

    The IRS, as in the Internal Revenue Service?

    I hate to call BS, but I used to work for the IRS and there is nothing there that he has access to that will tell him if this guy had a heart attack or if a car has a new engine. Furthermore, taxpayer data is taken very seriously by the IRS and if you dad was "browsing" anyone's information without that case being assigned to him loosing his job would be the least of his problems, I know I've seen it happen.
