Heap of the Week: 1995 Audi S6 Avant

It’s been a mixed week at GCFSB for C4 Audis; yesterday I wrote up the best of the U.S. S4 which reminded us how incredible these cars can be; but more folks pine for a good example of the Avant. A few days earlier, I wrote up aslightly rough 1995.5 S6 Avant, which needed some trim work, a good cleaning and some center caps for the wheels but otherwise looked decent. In that post, I talked about how these Avants were used hard and most turn up in worn condition; today’s example is no exception. Looking a bit tired but – as they say with houses – with “good bones”, will this S6 Avant be a heap worth restoring?

1995 Volkswagen Golf with 11,000 miles

It’s not too often that you get excited about an entry-level, no frills car. Take, for example, today’s 4-door 1995 Golf. It’s not the first year of the A3, nor the last. It’s Colorado Red, probably not the color I’d have chosen. It’s got broad, flat and not particularly supportive tan cloth seats. The interior is a sea of plastic, and unlike recent Audi and Volkswagen products, it’s not the pretty and soft kind. It’s not got the fantastic VR6 motor, not even a manual transmission, and to top it off, yes, those are wheel covers. So why is it here, and why did I get excited when I saw it? Well, what makes every unmodified Golf special? In the case of this car, just the fact that it exists at all makes me excited; a low mileage survivor Mk.3 that is completely original? Yes, please!

1995 Porsche 911 Carrera

One of my favorite modifications is factory sport suspension. I can’t tell you why, other than I’m slightly obsessed with OEM+ configurations. In addition to the 993 being my preferred 911 generation, combining this platform with the factory M030 suspension seems like a win-win to me. Not to mention the fantastic color combination and sensible upgrades (though I will never understand why everyone is so eager to throw away the amber turn signals). Factor in the low-mileage and it’s hard to find something wrong with this pretty ’95.

Tres Quattros – A Brace of Silver Arrow C4s

Recently I’ve written up a few tasty European market S6 quattros, but what’s available on this side of the pond? Well, even though the used market is a little different here than it is in Europe, there are still several great options in you’re into the C4 chassis and its legendary 2.2 20V turbocharged motor. Today I’ve got three examples of one of the more rare colors to see on the C4 – silver, and two with grey leather. Which will be the one you’d like? Let’s start with the oldest:

1995 BMW 540i M-Sport

About a month ago, I wrote up a 540i M-Sport; black over black with the requisite 6-speed and popular M-Parallels, it was an instant hit for our fans. The price was even pretty reasonable; it was certainly in good shape, for sure. I had only two real issues with it; one is that I probably wouldn’t buy a black car again and that I honestly preferred the M-System “Throwing Stars” to the M-Parallels on this car. As if to answer my concerns – and replete with half the mileage of the last example – comes this stunning white 1995 example:
