Since the wife and I both lost our cars in the last 2 months, I went car shopping.
I bought a 2001 Audi A4 1.8T quattro
It is in mint condition, and when I say mint, I mean it doesn't look like anyone has ever sat in the leather seats.
I found the window sticker in the manual and the list price was $30,015 with every option imaginable...
I got it for $4500 including tax, tags and title transfer. Paid cash so no monthly payments for me
The funny thing is, I went to go see it and it was at a friends garage. He is the one that has been doing the maintenance on it since new. Synthetic oil every 5,000 miles religiously. And he just replaced the timing belt, water pump and all the seals over the holiday. It has brand new tires and brakes and a 4 wheel alignment was recently done.
It was a nice find and I was the second person to see it, but the first with cash in hand
