2000 Audi A4 2.8 quattro Avant

If yesterday’s mellow yellow 323Ci wasn’t the sunshine you’d like to see, how about something a bit more brilliant in design and presentation? I have to say the fascination with BMW wagons and their ensuing high prices sometimes perplexes me, as Audi offered a sporty, manual, all-wheel drive Avant that is great looking, reliable and long-lived and will make you feel pretty special. That’s especially so when it’s optioned in one of the more rare shades available on the B5; in this case, LY1B Brilliant Yellow. I’m sure there will be claims that, like Pelican Blue and Tropical Green, these Easter colors make the jelly bean shaped A4 a bit too festive, but personally I love the look of this Avant:

This is an extremely rare car ( Brilliant Yellow A4 2.8) that has been garage kept in immaculate condition from day one with EVERY service record from year 2000 to its most recent oil change. Once sitting in the driver seat it looks, smells, and drives like a brand new car. Money was never a question when it came to servicing this wagon and the drive will surly confirm that statement. I will just highlight some of the key points of service in this ad but shall you have any in depth questions please feel free to ask.

Check engine/ air bag light goes on and off from time to time, one of the LCD screens is starting to faint in display, and the rear right passenger window motor needs replacing. These issues may be corrected if it does not sell before the next service date.

As these A4s go, this one is certainly above average and is exceedingly rare in this configuration. Despite that, A4s typically don’t seem to draw the same enthusiast attention that the E46 325ix does, for example. That’s a shame, because while this isn’t really a “sporty” car, it’s a very nice all-arounder that is increasingly infrequent to see. Bidding currently is only at around $1,100 on the no reserve auction, a massive value in the used all weather wagon market. The B5 has some known faults but just like the BMWs has an active community that support them and there are plenty around to grab parts off of. For something a little different than the typical grocery getter, the A4 is still a solid choice.

  1. 2.8 Turbo motor?
    Luxury windshield wipers front and rear?
    Winter tires are currently installed (in.. according to eBay, Daytona Beach?)

  2. the car looks to be from Colorado 2015 so snow tires seem logical but the no expense spared with check engine air bag warning light ? surly no

  3. 2.8 Turbo motor eh? That’s a new one…

  4. Dammit Carter, I was hoping this car wouldn’t show up on GCFSB. I’ve been emailing with the seller since it originally posted, thinking this would make a great spare car (other than my S5, S2000 and Benz 420SEL). Hopefully you guys won’t run up the price for me. It’s located only 1.5 hours from me.

  5. NO ONE ELSE BID!

    🙂 good luck Christian, looks like a pretty solid one.

  6. Anyone else notice the B5 S4 seats?

  7. Funny you should mention the seats. I noticed how much I like the interior, but never thought that they might not have been original. Funny, because I had an S4…doh.

  8. I did not notice the hills and mountains of Daytona Beach on my last visit.

  9. Sport seats were an option on these B5s. Funny this car doesn’t seem to be a sport package car though as it would be lower and have the “Swing” 7 spoke wheels. The Sport steering wheel was also a separate line item, the 1BE suspension and wheels weren’t.

  10. Book value on this car is about $2K max according to the valuation sites. And with check engine light, aribag light, rear window motor, and fading center display, you are looking at another $1500 minimum to get the car right. CEL and airbag light are potentially big big ticket items to fix. I’m going to keep watching it and see what happens, may still throw in another bid.

  11. Sold at $3450. I talked to the owner today, turns out the car wasn’t in Florida until 1 hour before the auction ended, making it impossible to do a pre-purchase inspection. Which I would require for a car that lived its entire life in the rust/snow belt.
