- 01.5 A4 TQM with a few goodies
Oh man i dont think his car is that bad.. it only has close to 60k now..Also, his WS6 came *with* the handling package. For something with a live rear axle, it handled competently when new - better than the SN95 Mustang GT that was its contemporary and just short of the C5 Corvette (which was the source of much consternation in GM). That said, it certainly needs a complete suspension overhaul, because just like the Brits, GM used really rubbish rubber in the suspension, plus the shocks are probably shot after this many years. Replacing the shocks and installing a set of poly everything from Energy Suspension or Prothane should return the car to better than stock levels, for less than $600. The brake hoses are probably all bulged out by now - $100 for Goodrich braided stainless will solve that problem. The problem here isn't the car's design, it's the fact that it's gotten old and needs repair.
