Bought Q4 donor car

Post by Alfan » Sun Jan 10, 2016 9:21 am

Picked up a Q4 spare parts car in Germany this weekend. It has no engine, transmission or interior. It has most likely done less than 80.000km and the body looks to be in great condition. Apparently the engine failed, then failed again after repair some 10 years ago, so it has become a donor car. Still has the 4WD parts, apart from the viscomatic ECU.

Great find; will probably be a good match for your needs (having driven so much with yours)?

Well done, there should be some useful spares there.

Is that the car that was advertised on the German eBay classifieds? I seem to remember seeing a black engine-less Q4 on there a few weeks ago. There's always some interesting Alfa spares for sale on that site.

I see a Zender spoiler too (unless I'm mistaken) - a rather rare item!

Yes, it was on that site about 4 weeks ago. It actually has a lot of useful parts.

It might be a Zender spoiler, I am not sure. I don't need that, so if no one else in the garage is interested in it, I will put it on this site.

Well it can never hurt to have a spare parts car, particularly as these cars get older.

As for the spoiler, it certainly looks the same shape as the Zender ones which curve downwards at each side. If it is a Zender item it should have the word 'Zender' imprinted on the top of the spoiler (facing toward the sky) on the right hand side (I think). With it being black, it might take a keen eye to spot it. If you can't find a home for it, I may be willing to take it off your hands... :)

If only space would allow me... That's a great idea, all in all much cheaper than buying all the parts individually. Good find.

Would you have an ABS pump + module for me? I had no luck finding one for the last 6 months... :roll:

As you may recall, I have also been searching for the pump and this one has it - so no extra :( I just hope this one still works, the car has been at a stand still for about 10 years.

I found out that it is a Zender spoiler, it is marked on the right side of it. I cannot recall if it had an extra brake light as standard, like this one has.

Forgive my ignorance - are Q4 ABS pumps different to other 164 pumps?

As for the spoiler, I think Zender produced two versions; one with the brake light and one without. As I said a while back, if you have no use for it I may be willing to take it off your hands. My Q4 has a weird spoiler that is narrower than the bootlid (it looks rather odd) and I think it's from a BMW...we can't allow that now can we :lol:

Yes, there is one or more threads on this around here, probably the technical forum. The ABS and 4WD interacts.

You are on the possible receiver list if no one in the garage is interested :)

That makes sense. Yet another part unique to the Q4 then.

Thanks :wink:
