Winter Weekend Edition – 1995 Audi A4


Next to the 405, I photographed this 1995 Audi A4. It’s probably a project/parts car too, and it seems to have had a rough life so far. I don’t think the snowplow has treated it too kindly, either.

Audis like this are still in decent demand, so it’s likely it’s a high-mileage car that’s suffered a failure of some sort. Like the Peugeot, it’s left to lie on the snowy parking lot of the vocational school without a clear idea where it’s supposed to go next.


The Audi is an early car, and you can see the old-style Audi logo on the front wing. I also noted the (rare in Finland) sunroof is slightly open, which doesn’t bode well for the headlining’s condition.


The engine here is the base 1.8 20V 125-hp four, also found on the Volkswagen Passat.



The rear corner’s suffered a couple of hits, and the left taillight is completely busted. I’m also intrigued how the rear plate can be this bent. As a final insult, the car has dollar-store wheeltrims in place of anything original. Yeah, my standards are high.


Rust on a mid-1990s Audi? Inconceivable! This is a probable telltale of the possible high mileage, as these do not give in too easily. I’m also detecting signs of a crumpled driver-side front corner, covered by snow.


Like the 405, the A4 is probably a goner unless someone takes it on as a cheap project. Cheap as in purchase price, of course.

    Rust means it's not an original fender?
    This car was the same body used for the 1996 US spec A4. Same signal/football fenders and wide plate trunklid.
    The unpainted door handles and mirrors never made here.

      Yeah, I think there's a colour mismatch on the fender anyway as it's slightly darker. That would easily mean a shoddy repair job.
