We bought the cheapest Audi in the UK! Was this a good choice?
Is this a reverse flex?
I was due to change my car... in 2020, ehhh. Anyway, I was hunting for a good deal on an Alfa Giulietta or maybe a Mini Cooper S, I was due to graduate in June and wanted to use my last long summer holiday to search for a car, we all know how that went this year.
A few months later my friend Bob called and opened with the following line
'Hello mate, guess what, I just bought an Audi for a £100 quid, we need to figure out a video idea for it'.
'You, bought what and for how much?'
'Audi, 100 quid'
'Does it run? '
'Yeah.. kind of'.
I was hooked, but I didn't even think of buying it at the time. I came up with a bunch of video ideas such as 'can it drive to x, without breaking down' or 'how hard is it to kill a 1.9 TDI?!'.
However, after taking a closer look it became clear that the Audi merely had an unfortunate meeting with a 'mechanic' who shouldn't be allowed near a bicycle, let alone a car. More bolts were lose/'hand-tight' than properly fixed in, and oil was pouring out of every possible place, and a T-Shirt was found in a place, where no T-Shirt went before.
Either way, Bob decided that despite the terrible first impression, the cars condition wasn't terminal, it shall be saved. So what now?
Well I was looking for a car wasn't I? Granted I was looking for something about half the size and weight, but in times of crisis who can be picky? Also, Audi's got comfy seats, real comfy seats...
After a short drive with Bob my made was made, I was going to buy the Audi. Bob sorted out a couple of issues which mainly consisted of taking apart the engine and giving it a through clean and subsequently fixed any other bodgeries left by the 'mechanic' who touched it before.
