The progression of vehicles in my garage may have been solidly German, but I’ve never been beholden to one marque. I went through my BMW phase, Volkswagen phase, Mercedes-Benz phase and now back to a BMW of sorts, with the MINI Cooper S. But other than the elusive Porsche, the one brand that has escaped me has been Audi. However, this could change sooner than later. The styling of both BMW and Mercedes-Benz doesn’t really appeal to me as of late, but for the last decade, Audis have steadily grabbed my attention each time a new model appears. In the future, I hope the company decides to bring back a standard Avant to these shores, sans Allroad trim, such as this 1999 A4 Avant 1.8T Quattro. The B5 A4 Avant styling for me was an exercise in tasteful restraint. Equipped with the 5-speed manual gearbox and Quattro, it would be fairly easy to forget you are driving a family oriented vehicle.

With exception of some S4s, it’s not common to come across an A4 Avant of this vintage. The manual gearbox is just an added bonus for an enthusiast like myself. An Audi Avant like this makes me wonder why folks prefer the small SUV to an all-wheel drive estate like this. With a lower center of gravity and manual gearbox, this combines “sport” and “utility” much better. The price for this A4 Avant is probably a little bit optimistic considering this is not an S model. Somewhere around the $7,000 to $8,000 range would be more realistic
