Hi All,

Just picked up a 2000 reg (registered exactly 15 years ago this very day) 2.6 manual Final Edition Cabriolet in silver with black roof and Chili Red leather to keep me busy over the coming years. Drove her home through 106 miles of the most awful weather last night and I am so far mightily impressed; smooth, quiet, and completely rock solid. She has 98k on the clock and full Audi service history up to 92k so I am tempted to hang the expense and keep that going. Just making a list of some small things to start with; re-fit rubber door trims, coolant temperature sender intermittent, one bonnet catch a bit sticky, that sort of thing. Otherwise, it's all looking good for some sunshine.

Hoping to pick up lots of tips and assistance, and will post up some piccies once I can get some daylight time with a polishing cloth.

Cheers,

Roo.

Here you go chap, some interior shots as requested. It's pretty much immaculate internally with only wear on the driver's bolster which I will get tarted up in due course. Only had her a couple of weeks so just getting my head around the list of things that need mild tweaking. It's not as savagely red in the flesh as I'm sure you know, but these pictures make it look at bit Dexter for sure.
