Type B4 (Series 4) Audi 80 technical Data (1991- 1994

This information is correct as far as we know, but you use this information AT YOUR OWN RISK!

More information is to follow in the (hopefully) near future. This information is supplied to help owners that cannot obtain the information elsewhere- Haynes have stated that they will NOT do a workshop manual for this model, they think there will be a lack of sales (!) (They do not cover quattro models anyway!). As for Robert Bentley, it is unknown as to whether they will also do a manual, as they only do workshop manuals for the USA market.

All information is supplied as is, and is probably for the UK specific models. All information is Copyright © 2000 Audi Owners Club.

More information on specific questions is available in the audi enthusiast’s list e-mail archive, or on a couple of sites within our linkssection.
