Selling my Mom’s baby – 1997 Audi A4 Cabriolet Convertible Sport PREMIUM PACKAGE – PRICED TO SELL QUICKLY

Fully loaded PREMIUM PACKAGE with the optional sport seats and sport steering wheel,
optional rear seat windscreen, 6 disc CD changer cassette
2.8L V6 Automatic – WHITE
Black leather interior, no rips or tears
74k original miles
Runs great and ready for the summer
Body is straight and never been into any accidents. Please see pictures for the condition of the car.
All maintenance are up to date
new battery, new starter motor, new front CV joint, new steering column
Car is in NEAR PRISTINE CONDITION except for a couple minor things below.
CLEAN TITLE ON HAND

The BAD:
-Car still has original shocks, mechanic said it might need to be replaced soon
-Stereo has anti-theft mode and is on SAFE mode right now. We’re trying to find the unlock code for it at the moment.

My Mom is the 2nd owner – non smoker and always kept in the garage.
Styling is very classy and a real head-turner, perfect for the summer.

Only selling because my Mom is 75 years old and she never uses the car as intended. She doesn’t like driving with the top down either and we recently bought a new 2014 Subaru Impreza and no longer have room for another car so the Audi needs a new home right now.

Book Value of the car as it sits is $6,500. Priced to sell at $5,000.
You won’t find a better looking 1997 Audi Cabriolet around guaranteed

Take the lid off of this car. With its top down, the 1997 Audi Cabriolet attracts a lot of envious attention, as it exudes subtle style and sophistication.

The Audi Cabriolet comes with a hefty pricetag, 1997 Cabriolet, choosing instead to offer the power top and leather trim in a Premium Package that adds in sport-style seating. The rear seat windscreen, that reduces wind interference, is also still optional.

Not that you’ll be driving this in the winter. This convertible is designed for fun and a high-class driving experience. A 2.8-liter, 172-hp engine and 4-speed automatic transmission cause slow initial acceleration in this heavy car, but once you get up to highway speeds, the Cabriolet is a pleasant cruiser, hitting speeds plenty powerful to de-curl your new perm.

The 1997 Cabriolet is smooth and quiet, with very little wind noise when the top is up. Seats are comfortable, complementing the soft suspension and balanced handling. Despite being a convertible, the heavy weight of the car gives it a sturdy, safe feel. The one-touch power top is a must, and the overall style turns heads, according to most drivers.

The B4 Audi Cabriolet isn’t really what most enthusiasts think of when dreaming of a German convertible, but it’s a pleasing car to look at with a great shape. Yes, they’re heavy. Yes, they only came in automatic, and yes, only with the fairly gutless 2.8 V6. But put the top down and the car is plenty powerful enough to blow your hair around and offers lots of style on a tight budget. I particularly love the late B4 6-spoke sport wheels that this car has, but the seats seem to be from something else and aren’t the seats I normally associate with the B4. Rather have something a bit more sporty?

Obviously, for a car like a TT you’re going to pay a bit more, but in return you get some great styling and a body design that I think has aged much better than the Z3 or SLK. The underpinnings may be mostly Volkswagen derived but that’s not a bad thing – the 225 horsepower rated inline-4 provides plenty of zip and the Haldex all-wheel drive is enough to get by with in most conditions. The color combination is great, and while I’d really like to see some records there’s no denying that these first generation TTs offer a lot of package for not much money. Rather have something even more sporty?

Talking about a lot of car for the money, these quattro GmbH assembled 2-door S4 convertibles are a market that is largely ignored but offers tremendous performance at a budget price. Honestly, even without the manual transmission and knowing there’s a fair chance that V8 will need to be pulled out for service, it’s hard to argue that the earlier Audis are a better deal. 18″ Avus wheels, black over black and that great soundtrack mean this is a serious performance car but with a softer side. Still, legends of Audis past are enough to turn most away from the brand so my guess is that these B6 S4s will remain low for a while.

Here’s a great opportunity for a beautiful, reliable, well-loved classic…
This car is so beautiful it was selected to be the cover model on the CABRIOLETS calendar! (see photo)

The car is in excellent condition and has many extras that you won’t find on other cabbys:
Keyless entry – just push a button to lock or unlock the doors – not even available when the car was new
Rare special-order VW Deluxe radio installed new from the box three years ago – this radio has an aux-in so you can listen to any audio device like an iPhone while keeping the factory look!
10-Disk mp3 CD player installed in the trunk for hours of music
Satellite radio installed – just activate and listen
New white top – professionally installed with a new VW-brand window with defroster – doesn’t leak – even when washing the car
Original white “boot” – covers the top when its down
Rebuilt automatic transmission – shifts smoothly and perfectly like new (this was a high-cost repair)
Custom CABRIOLET floormats – black with white piping
All of the original books and maintenance records
Both original keys with keyless entry remotes (two)
Replaced factory emblems so they shine nice and silver
Factory front license plate bracket in pearl green to match the car (hard-to-find)
Factory “teardrop” alloy rims
California Car Cover included – all-weather protection when out of the garage
Replaced high-beam center lights – no foggy ones here
New muffler
New brakes
New tires (99% treadlife)
New motor mounts – no vibrations – nice and smooth idle
Recently passed emissions testing – no problem there
No dings. No dents. Original paint. Water beads up and rolls right off.
The car has always been maintained and just passed a checkup at the VW dealership.

The car is great at highways speeds or around town – even on hills. Really ready to go for years of driving fun.

Car is also listed locally. I reserve the right to end the auction early, should it sell before auction end.

While the design may have been the best part of 20 years old by the end of its run, it’s hard to argue with the charm of the Volkswagen Cabriolet. Dismissed by many as a “chick” car for some time, the charisma of the Rabbit-based convertible was, along with the GTi, enough of a draw to keep Volkswagen alive in some pretty hard times of the late 1980s. So while it may not be the best driving or even functioning car, we owe the Cabriolet some thanks for helping to keep VW in the U.S.. This particular model looks great in emerald green with teardrop alloys, a nice but period departure from the triple white models we’re used to seeing. Truth is, if this one isn’t your cup of tea you can buy just about any of these first generation or even the second generation Cabrios for well under $10,000 any day of the week.

If the VW Cabrio lost some of the charm of the original, it wasn’t much – but it also didn’t seem to have the market cornered like the Cabriolet did. However, that charm and cornered-market desirability came right back with the launch of the new Beetle Convertible. There were throwback styling touches, such as the bunched top when folded down, to remind buyers of the original. The new Beetle Convertible was light years better as an all-around car than the original, though, and arguably better than the previous two convertibles for Volkswagen had been, too. Good looking in its own way with lots of nice touches, it also offered reasonable performance with the Turbo model such as this. Like the TT, it offers a lot of style for your top down motoring.

Here is a beautiful 2007 Volkswagen Eos for sale. It’s a Florida car which means NO RUST and has a CLEAN Carfax reports that shows it has been serviced at the local VW Dealer since NEW!

This 2.0L turbocharged engine attached to a 6 speed DSG transmission provides excellent performance and great fuel economy. This hardtop convertible is loaded with options including leatherette seats, heated front seats, satellite radio, panoramic roof, dual climate control, 17″ alloy wheels, and much more.

The body is in excellent condition and the paint is nice and shiny. It has been extremely well maintained and runs and drives GREAT!

We are open to reasonable offers and interesting trades.
Low cost shipping and extended warranty available.

Here’s a little-known fact; the Volkswagen Eos is assembled in Portugal. Who knew? Our editor Paul, that’s who! If the Beetle represented the softer side of Volkswagen, the Eos really is the harder edged cousin. Based on the newer Golf platform, it also inherited the 2.0 turbo motor or in rare cases the 3.2 V6; this car carries the former. Mated to the ultra-crisp DSG transmission, it’s certainly the sportiest Volkswagen convertible ever. It also offers great style and refinement, punching above its weight class in many ways. I really love the look of them, and the folding hard top coupled with 4 seats means it’s a practical year-rounder too. Prices are still sliding down but figure with some looking you can get a decent car in the $10,000-$11,000 range today.

2000 Porsche Boxster – VIN WP0CA2980YU623993

For your consideration is my happy little unmolested 2000 Porsche Boxster – the car that brought Porsche motoring back to the masses. This car has not been restored in any way, shape, or form, but is an excellent low mileage driver and gets “thumbs-up” and positive comments everywhere we go.

I purchased this car from one of the local Porsche franchise dealers where it had been traded-in by the second owner on a new Porsche. I was surprised to find a 13 year-old car like this on a new car dealer’s lot, but once I looked it over I understood why -it’s truly a standout example, and one I thought I’d never find after looking at a lot of used and abused Boxsters – and it came with a clean CarFax to boot! This one had clearly been loved! Wearing just over 72,000 miles, I bought it as a fun weekend runabout. As a freelance automotive journalist, I’m now on to my next project. I am also thinning the herd. I have 2 factory keys and two file folders full of records along with the original manuals. It comes with 17″ Carrera alloy wheels, leather-wrapped steering whee and seats, power windows, locks and top, CD changer, and a Porsche OEM car cover.

In the last few thousand miles it has received: 1) new clutch; 2) oil and filter change; 3) main motor mount; 4) Continental performance all-season DWS tires; 5)Air/Oil Separator. The OEM convertible top is in very nice condition.

On the inside, this car is in excellent condition, not having suffered from the interior trim cracking and seat seam splits that plague so many Boxsters. There are no foul odors, and the carpets and new OEM floor mats are in good condition. The original radio/cassette, CD changer, heater, and air conditioning all work perfectly, and the car recently passed the stringent Virginia safety inspection (good through 10/15).

Outside, the car is remarkably straight save for a few very small parking lot dings. The speed yellow paint is in remarkable condition , and the doors shut perfectly. All of the lenses are in good, clear condition. The alloy wheels are in very nice condition, save for the right rear wheel which shows some kerbing on the lip, and the original spare tire and tool kit are in the front trunk.

The motor starts easily and settles to a very smooth idle. The power steering functions properly, and the 5-speed manual transmission (no Tiptronic here!) shifts as smoothly as any Porsche I’ve driven (including a new 911S Carrera 7-speed!). There are no odd noises or whines from the driveline. The new clutch takes-up properly and the car does not smoke irregularly. The brakes are in good condition and do not pull. The brake pedal is appropriately firm.

If it’s amazing that you can get into a first generation Boxster for $10,000, it’s even more astounding that with some careful looking and if you accept more miles, you can get into a Boxster S or 996 cabriolet. In terms of performance, those will outstrip the standard Boxster just about any day – but as a classic, low weight lower frills sports car the standard Boxster isn’t a bad ride. Unlike what we typically see with these cheap Boxsters, this one has some service history and is in the more rare to see Speed Yellow. Not everyone’s cup of tea, I’m sure, but I for one like the color combination and it helps the car to stand out a bit. These Boxsters still seem to be sliding down, but not much – so keep your eyes peeled for the one you’d really like. They’re one heck of a deal.

Speaking of one heck of a deal, how about the Z3-based M Roadster? Top down, a classic roadster with a legendary inline-6 up front driving the rear wheels through a manual gearbox – if the Boxster was the modern interpretation of the classic British roadster, the M Roadster was a throwback tribute. Nice examples still trade in the mid-to-high teens, but if you’re willing to take a less perfect example you can steal one around $10,000 these days – even cheaper than the M3s on which they’re based. Amazing. If you’re not as keen on the performance angle, you can get into a normal Z3 for even less in 1.9 or 2.8 form, though we really prefer the looks of the M.

We are very excited to offer a very fine automobile; a 2002 Mercedes-Benz CLK55 AMG Cabriolet. The styling of the CLK-Class group is strictly Mercedes-Benz but with more rounded lines than the C-Class sedan features. Oval headlights instead of rectangular units sit within a lower front end that flanks a tapered, classic-look grille. This convertible has an automatically activated roll bar and a power-operated top that includes a glass rear window with a defogger. Front and rear fog lights are mounted on this model. Riding a 105.9-inch wheelbase, the CLK-Class models are 180.2 inches long overall. This cabriolet stands 54.3 inches high. Seven-spoke alloy wheels hold 17-inchers. CLK-Class is built to provide ample interior space for four occupants on leather-upholstered seats. The front seats have a 10-way power adjustment with driver’s seat memory. A split, folding rear seat is installed in the back. Cargo volume is 9.4 cubic feet in this Cabriolet. Standard equipment includes automatic dual-zone air conditioning, a telescoping leather-wrapped steering wheel, cruise control, power windows and door locks, heated power mirrors with memory, a Bose cassette/weather-band stereo with CD changer, tachometer, digital clock, intermittent wipers, a universal garage-door opener and a theft-deterrent system. The 5.5-liter V-8 engine generates 342 hp and 376 pounds-feet of torque and teams five-speed-automatic transmission that makes use of Touch Shift for manually controlled gear changes by tipping the gearshift lever to the left or right. Side-impact airbags, traction control, antilock brakes and Mercedes’ Electronic Stability Program are standard. We have no owner manuals and one key for this car. It is very clean inside and out, Non-smoker. We aim to describe the cosmetic and mechanical condition of the vehicle as accurate as possible. All descriptions are strictly our professional opinion based on the year and mileage of the vehicle and in no way on a brand new vehicle. Please review all of the pictures for more details keeping in mind that visual inspection is more accurate than details perceived in a picture. Please call or visit our showroom for more details about this wonderful car 800-610-5562

As with the others, you can have a clean example of the non-performance variant of the C class cabriolet for less money – but why? You can jump into this CLK55 AMG by stretching your budget just a bit, and shouldn’t you? Don’t you deserve it? It’s pretty amazing that you can get into one of these cars for under $14,000 – miles and condition appear great, color combination is classic, and you get that motor. What’s not to like?

What’s your favorite?

  1. This is hard… If the M3 were a manual that would be my choice. The Audis are out for maintenance, weight, or gutlessness – or all three. Not a Z3 fan. The VWs are chick cars, not serious. I think it comes down to the Boxster, the S2, or the CLK. But I know S2s, and that one has some issues. Even wih the 2.7 the Boxster will be a bit slow, relatively. So…

    CLK55 AMG. Of course the most expensive choice. Of course.

  2. Kinda went a little overboard on the options, doncha think??

    Some general thoughts: when someone says “Florida car, no rust!” don’t believe them. I’ve bought several cars from coastal Florida towns and they all had an inordinate amount of corrosion under the skin as compared to the cars I see in Georgia.

    The rear window pulling away from the soft top on the Audi is not an easy (or cheap) fix. My wife’s Volvo C70 has the same problem and I’m pretty sure the only solution is going to be a new top.

    Boxster – great car to drive but really expensive to maintain.
    VW Cabriolet automatic – dog slow (I know this for a fact because we own one.)
    CLK – the soft top mechanism intrudes greatly on the trunk. Pack accordingly.
    SL – great cars but it generally takes 2 people to remove the hard top and then you have to store it.

    Which one would I choose? None of them. I personally drive coupes or sedans and leave the convertibles to my wife.

  3. The Audi B3 is simple, nowadays, and lovely. It’s a pity Audi did not stay with the very early 1990s type of wood and fenders. They “upgraded” the wood to a sort of burled walnut that actually looks worse than the prior. This V6 is blah. The 30v that came just after is better. Why Audi, did you not just stick with the 20v turbo? Why oh why?

    I like the Eos, but really like it in a beautiful shade of sky blue that VW has perfected. The Eos interior is lovely.

  4. I don’t know a lot about the EOS but I also think that interior (seats!) look awesome. Hey Brad, maybe this 6 speed for you? http://buffalo.craigslist.org/cto/4570956560.html
