You may be surprised at the inside, the interior looks in impressive condition for its age. No words about renovation, everything remains in its original trim with normal signs of wear, no cracks or scratches except for open seams on the front seat leather, the rest was great. The good news is that all gauges, panels, and instruments are still in good working condition.

As shown here is an Audi five-pot engine mated to a manual transmission. The 2.2-liter inline five-cylinder engine sits neatly in its bay with no issues mentioned, and it looks pretty promising from here.
