Pros

20v 5 Cylinder engine, quattro four-wheel drive, Audi build quality. Plain-looking rocket.

Cons

Some parts and repairs expensive (it's an Audi!), quite rare.

Audi 5 Cylinder At It's Best — To hear the words "2.3 litre 5 cylinder engine" doesn't exactly stir people into fits of anxiety. Most will ask you how a 5 cylinder can possibly work... Audi has proven it can, and extremely well. For over 10 years, the 5 cylinder engine was a staple of the Audi family line-up. Most cars could be optioned with it and even the first of the top-performance 'S' series of Audi used the magnificent 5 cylinder (oh, they also had a bit of a reputation in rallying. A bit...). When Audi made a double over-head cam, 4 valve per cylinder version they unleashed a totally new beast. This was a well-proven, durable and reliable engine that now had enough power to seriously excite. And that was before they bolted on a turbo. The car I've driven (quite often) is a naturally aspirated 20v quattro. The engine sings for it's supper, and the torque-sensing (TORSEN) quattro system makes this a seriously potent little machine. The only limit to how fast you want to corner is how big your bal.. er, bravados, are. First gear is a bit short, and low down the rev range isn't where the excitement is. It's only once the tacho needle is screaming it's way around to the 7000 RPM redline that things start to get interesting. So unless you bag it up and drop the clutch off the line, it tends to bog down on take-off. It makes up for it when it's moving though, and in-gear acceleration is impressive. Get the right gear and the right revs and the punch from that engine is staggering. Parts prices can make you cry, and being well over 15 years of age now, they're all going to require some work. I couldn't drive it every day though. I'd lose my license! Imagine what a turbo version is like?!

Pros

Bought cheap, It's an Audi

Cons

very heavy

Love The Appearance, Not Much Fun Of The Performance — Shift heavier. Gas mileage was not great but has all the luxury settings an old car can have, heated seat and automatic seat adjustment. Some of the newer cars do not even have all these. Style is OK consider it is an 1991 car

I Can't Get Rid Of It — I like all of the interior features but the outside of the car could use some work. I think it's because of the old paint job and the dull look it gives. It just doesn't shine like some of my other cars.

Audi 91 Best Car Ever — best car we have got needs sum work now like new shockes and tires. bloody quick good handling and if u tune them u can get over 1000 bhp out of them. they are quite rare now so it will be a challenge to get hold of a good one. its fun to drive. u will be able to get 25mpg on a good run. appearance of the car is a bit boxey but still looks sporty and suttle

'91 Audi 90 Quattro 20v — Great fun in the snow. Kissin cousin to the original Audi Quattro Coupe with the 20V minus the turbo. Bought this a a winter beater, but it turned into a bit of a project. Love the sound of the 5 cylinder. Harder and harder to dig up some parts though.

The Audi 90 Quatrro — I bought this car in 2006. These Audi 90's Quattros are rare. Superb 5 cylinder engine kicking out around 175bhp. Superb Handling with the 4X4. Body work is good as they were rust proofed. Interia is what let these down very basic.
