Re: What are people doing for a living???

I'm an in the opposite end of the scale working on much smaller products, namely Hearing Aids (ReSound as). My main focus is on the acoustical (sound) properties of the algorithms used in the signal processing. So nothing directly related to cars... Only stuff like when users of the products say tha...

Re: Danish 164 Q4 1995 + 1994.

Looks familiar :wink: but in a worse state than when I last saw it! The engine was running well at that point and there was nothing wrong to see in the engine bay. So what happened to the air filter box is a good question. However, I don't really think it has been driven without it. You say that the...

Yes, i replaced the lines. the thick one with a hydrolic tube and the small one with a brake line. Was easy for me as we have all the tools at work. I did not use the tester to get the air out.

viscomatic is working again central locking with remotes is working again. Its a total different feeling to drive the Q4. You notice the weight difference in acceleration. But the gears ratio is better then the 24V. the suspension allways feels a little harder then the 24V. But very nice to drive :...

Thank you for a very joyful meeting, René. Always a pleasure to meet fellow minded petrol heads :D It was also a good experience to finally drive another Q4 for comparison.

Buying a Q4 is like buying a box of chocolats; you never know what you're going to get.I had the same experience.After a while, little by little, things got better and luckily with me the only expensive part on mine was the labour and since I do all the work myselve, those hours were free.

Re: 2 x Q4 for sale in DK

Is that tax refund true even in the case of a sale by a private person? Or only if it is sold by a company with a VAT tax number? As I think obenhaus has stated, this refund is available for anyone selling a car in DK, be it private or company. If the total value of the car (with tax) is below 2.00...

Re: 2 x Q4 for sale in DK

so you have to pay taxes to get them out of denmark ? No! When you import a car to DK, you have to pay import tax (as tax on new cars are roughly 180% here) based on a value estimation made by the tax 'company'. When you export a car from DK you can get tax refunded (-15%) based on a value estimati...

There is a total price of 30.000DKK (~4.000euro), however if exporting them there is a twist with taxes, that I will try to explain. Single price for the red one is 1.000euro and no tax on it, so it can be exported, thoug...

Re: White Q4 for sale

From what I read the rear springs have been replaced with ones from a FWD. That was done on mine as well (by mistake from the garage) and after 3-4 months it was very low at the rear... They put in rubber inserts in the spring (don't know the correct term for those) and that helped until they manage...
