Found one nearby for $500. Ran when parked about 2 months ago, seller went to start it and put it inside the garage, no crank and a small puff of smoke. Assumed it was the starter and gave up on it. Tiptronic replaced 100k ago, chassis and engine have 200k on them. Everything supposedly works including the air suspension.
I love these things and it seems like a heck of a price. However I know they are nightmares of maintenance. Thoughts?
