Thanks! I can't wait to begin using it.Porto wrote:Hi Haydn,
A 3.0L is nice, a 3.5L is better!
That low milage it has and for that price you paid --> WINNER!
Get yourself a nice set of original Q4 rims and you'll have yourself a hell of a car!
And yes, it is possibly the best purchase I have made so far (touch wood!). It seems to be in a really nice condition, but is not without its faults.
As for the wheels, I'm torn between either a set of the original Speedlines like the ones in your picture (very nice) or perhaps some 17" Zender Milanos (very similar to the Speedlines but slightly larger diameter). Neither of these are very easy to find though. I'm a bit picky about wheels, but there's no rush so I'll consider my options. I do have a set of 15" 'salami-slicer' wheels as fitted to early QV's that I could put on it but I don't think it would look right. Plenty of time to decide anyway

I saw this one and was watching for parts as the description was unclear.
I have a standard 3.0 Q4 that I bought last year. Would be great to see your next write up in the AROC mag!
If you are interested to check the 4x4 system I have the correct tester and module to check and reset the viscomatic.
I've also had a number of issues which I have worked through, generally where the car was not used, although kept in a dry warm garage.
Give us a shout if you need some help
The description was certainly unclear! Though after unearthing the modifications to the car I figured I had nothing to lose so I swallowed a brave pill and went for it - it's looking good so far, though I've yet to have a poke around underneath so I'll keep my fingers crossed for now.
It's good to know there's at least a few Q4's still in use in the UK - aside from my own I don't think I've ever seen another in the flesh which is a shame. I know of 2 Proteo Rosso cars - including mine - and a black one (off the top of my head). Who knows, maybe I'll see yours at a show one day or vice versa
My next AROC article will undoubtedly focus on the Q4, so it's good to know at least one person will find it interesting
Thanks for the offer re: the tester - I'll keep you in mind for future reference, should I encounter any issues with the Viscomatic system. Hopefully I'll be able to tackle the rest of the car without too many issues!
