2003 Audi S6 Avant 6-speed

In general, the C5 Audi S6 gets overlooked by enthusiasts who dismiss it as a soft, automatic-only fragile replacement for the legendary C4 S6. That’s a shame, because the C5 is a solid car and performer and one that the owners who have experienced them seem to love. What those who aren’t in the know seem to want is a 6-speed manual variant of the S6, though few have undertaken the swap. We have seen a few though, most recently a 6-speed converted S6 that was questionably modified but sported the all-important manual. No one jumped on that car despite the seemingly reversible modifications, so perhaps today’s more original example will make some converts?

Afternoon Accessories: Audi A4/A6 polished aluminum 15×6 wheels

For some reason, every once in a while I see a wheel that I just really love. It doesn’t need to be the biggest, widest wheel available, and I’m not always sure why aesthetically some appeal to me and others don’t. Take, for example, today’s A4/A6 polished aluminum wheels – on the surface, a very similar design to the 15×7 wheels that came standard on the A4 1.8T – but those I hate, and these I love. They’re understated and hint at Euro-goodness, and are quite rare to see on these shores. Here’s a set for someone on a budget:

2001 Audi A6 2.7T S-Line 6-speed

In the realm of overlooked Audis, the 2.7T A6 has to rank fairly high. It falls squarely off the radar of most enthusiasts, who focus on models like the S4, RS6 and S8 variants, or the V8 A6 and Allroad A6 variants. But ranking fairly high on the list of best sports sedans of the early 2000s list should be the 2.7T 6-speed – a S4 in a business suit. A few months bank I wrote up a A6 2.7T 6-Speed that reminded me of how great these cars are, yet how unappreciated they are by the general public. With a drivetrain capable of 300,000 miles plus, great tunability and a slick 6-speed gearbox, these are some of the last manual large sedans that Audi imported to these shores. Take a look at this lower mile Silver-blue example from the same seller as the earlier car:

Double Take: Two Turbo or not to Turbo 2: 2003 Audi A6 2.7T v. 2002 Audi A6 4.2

Taking some of the elements of my previous Allroad Showdown and S4 versus A4 3.2 Avant Showdown, this morning I’ve got another turbo versus displacement showdown, this time amongst A6 sedans. For effectively the same package, these two sedans perform their task in very different ways. It was evident from the Allroad showdown that the manual trumped almost everything else, so as with the S4 versus A4 test both cars today are tiptronic. While that may be disappointing to some, these are both competent luxury sport sedans at a budget price. Let’s start with the 2.7T:

You are looking at a fully loaded luxury car that has been exceptionally well kept; it’s an all around great looking vehicle. This gorgeous A6 has been highway driven. This is a great car which combines superior luxury and comfort and sport sedan performance. This is a-never-smoked-in beauty that looks and smells new. The car was garage kept. Great looking bright red exterior and tan leather interior makes this car look great!

THE CAR HAS BEEN SERVICED BY THE DEALER ITS WHOLE LIFE!

The engines is one of the finest German engines ever created – a 2.7L TURBO Engine that runs and feels smooth and provides abundant power. The transmission shifts like on a new car, no skips or slips on shifts.

The interior is spotless while the leather shows almost no wear. The interior also has REAL WOOD trim! The front seats lean all the way back to the rear, so you can actually sleep rather comfortably in the car! The seats are extra comfortable with 16-way driver and passenger seat adjustments including Power driver + passenger 4-way lumbar adjustment provides variable lower back support.

The engine compartment clean, and void of any leaks. All the electrical options appear to be in working order. Audi A6 rates very high in safety, it’s not a light car, and has a lot of specially engineered alloys along its frame to dampen any possible impact. The SIDEGUARD Curtain and Rear Side Airbags provide the safety you and your family require.

A very good climate control system is present in this car, with not only front seats control, but you also have ice cold A/C blowing directly at the back seats, while the passengers are able to adjust how much airflow they want! The trunk is very clean and roomy as you can see from the pictures.

This is a unique hard to find automobile that has every option. It’s been garage kept, and is in good otherwise condition.

Talk about impressive condition; this A6 sure looks the part. I really like the departure from the typical drab silver or black often found on A6s – this splash of color makes all the difference for me. I love the super-light BBS RC wheels, the interior looks fantastic, and the lower miles are sure appealing. However, the price point is the highest I’ve seen for a non-S6 for a while – does that price this car out of the market? It just might; for $12,000 you can have your pick of pretty much any C5 A6 or S6. Still, the condition and color are what make the car appealing. Rather have two less turbos and two more cylinders?

The 4.2 A6 received not only a larger motor, but a host of upgrades to the body; S6-esque door trim, flared fenders and aluminum pieces to lighten up the front end. The result – surprisingly – is that the A6 4.2 with the V8 was less nose-heavy than the 2.7T V6 model. That makes for a bit more sport, coupled with wider-stance tires to really channel some of the earlier C4 S4/S6 model. In addition to making the car a bit more sport-oriented, it completed the look much better, and the 4.2 was the defacto S6 sedan despite not having the full 340hp motor.

This particular example has more miles, is the not as appealing silver over black, and the condition doesn’t look as prime as the 2.7T. On the positive side, it looks more aggressive and comes with a set of snows on the OEM wheels, along with the sport wheels included. Additionally, it’s claimed to have a recent service though no mention of what was actually serviced is provided. Importantly, though, it’s priced $2,000 under the 2.7T, making it that much more appealing.

Were it me, I’d have a hard time choosing between these two – I really love the color combo and discrete package of the 2.7T, but were I in the market I’d probably hold out for 6 speed manual that really makes the package desirable. That leaves the V8; in my mind, the only problem is that these 4.2s are priced on the verge of S8 territory, and for me that’s a much more desirable package. But between these two specific cars, I think I’d choose the 4.2 – which would be the Q-ship for you?

Wagon Week 10K Friday: Which Road would you take?

509

The C5 Audi Allroad was one of the better wagons Audi has brought over to the United States in recent memory. The car was available with initially only the 2.7 twin-turbo V6 out of the S4 and A6 2.7T, but later was also available with a 4.2 V8 making for a smooth operator. What differentiated the Allroad from the S6 was a neat package; out of the box, these cars came with height adjustable air suspension that made for both impressive ground clearance and sporty handling in the twisties. Today I’ve cooked up an interesting comparison between the two more desirable versions of the car; the 2.7T mated to the 6 speed manual and the V8 4.2 model. Let’s start with the manual:

Year: 2004

CLICK FOR DETAILS: 2004 Audi Allroad 2.7T 6-speed on eBay

Hello! Up for sale is a 2004 Audi Allroad Quattro. This car is in a great exterior and interior condition. The color is very nice gray metallic and it’s the original paint. It has 6-cylinder 2.7T engine with all-wheel drive 6-speed manual transmission. Plenty of power combined with famous Quattro all-wheel drive system makes this vehicle the best for all kinds of weather conditions, especially for winters. This vehicle has currently a little over 127,000 miles. This car looks and drives like new and it’s very clean inside and out. Please, look at the pictures, they say it all.

This vehicle is fully loaded. It has black/grey leather interior, powered heated seats and rearview mirrors, 8 airbags, sunroof, power windows, premium Bose stereo system with 6 CD-player and satellite radio, dual climate control, cruise control, ABS, traction control, parking sensors, central locking, alarm, factory xenon headlights, fog lights, 17’ alloy wheels, roof racks and much more. It has all matching almost brand new Michelin tires.

The vehicle equipped with famous Allroad air ride suspension, which is a great feature. This system has no issues with lifting up and holding air for weeks. The engine and transmission work great. Timing belt, water pump and all possible seals and gaskets were replaced last week. Only original or high quality german made parts were used, no cheap junk. Check engine light never comes on, neither any other warning lights. No fluids are leaking, no smell of any kind, there are all new brake pads.

Since the vehicle is used, it does have its small blemishes, such as slightly worn headlight switch, dent on rear bumper, burn mark on driver’s seat and couple of almost invisible dings on the left fender, nothing major at all. Please, see the pictures. Radio and climate control buttons are in great shape. BTW, Audi has a recall for burned marks on the seats caused by heating element, so it can be replaced for free. This vehicle just passed NYS inspection and it comes with clean NYS title. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to ask.

Winning bidder to pay $300 deposit via Paypal within 2 days after the auction is ended. Bidders with the 5 feedback or less, please, contact me prior to bidding.

This car looks quite clean outside, and with some recent engine maintenance that’s a plus. The interior also looks quite clean and presents well. The Allroads are quite complicated beasties though, and though the seller claims the suspension works perfectly, you can bet either compressor or airbags are going to need to be replaced before long if they haven’t been already. It’s an expensive repair to undertake, though there are upgraded aftermarket parts now available. Alternatively, you can swap in steel springs from either a S6 or A6, though you loose the ride height adjust-ability obviously. Second downside? The two turbos; while they’re great for tuning, they’re more often than not a replacement item as the miles grow, necessitating removal of the motor. Those two things got you down? How about this unique V8:

509

Adding the 4.2 changed the character slightly from the “wooshy” 2.7T to a more refined, torquey driving style with the V8. Ultimately, this relaxed the car and though on the books it looks very similar to the S6, it’s a very different car. This particular model is even more different than most, with it’s custom interior and monochrome paint scheme:

I have a 2005 Audi Allroad 4.2 V8 for sale.

It is a special order and comes with the matching fender flares and body molding to the Titanium Grey exterior. It has custom Black, Grey & Red leather seating and both front and back seats are heated with heated steering wheel. It has Sirius/XM integrated, Homelink, walnut trim in front and back. It also has the automatic and manual variable height suspension. It is automatic with Triptronic shifting. Bi-Xenon auto adjusting & leveling headlamps as well as front & rear fog lights. It has had all of the services done in the past 2000 miles and in the last 500 miles had the air suspension and struts replaced. It has new Michelin tires in the last 5,000 miles. It also has legal front and rear window tinting.

It has 116,000 miles on it which is good average mileage and has been mostly highway. I am asking $10,500 or reasonable offers. Email and calls are welcome. This is for local private sale for cash or bank check only. This will not be shipped, etc. Contact 5085057737 with questions. These ARE actual pictures of the car. More can be texted upon request. I am looking to sell by the weekend.

Scared of the turbos and the airbags? Check those two off – the suspension and service has just been done to this particular car. The interior is a bit over the top, but not garish and thankfully not too overdone; I think it’s probably liveable, though I don’t think it really suits the car particularly well. This example does have the rivited two piece wheels I like more in terms of looks, and the Titanium looks better than the Alpaca Beige.

Despite likely less issues with the suspension, I’d guess that most people would choose to grab the 6 speed. It’s a versatile, sporty wagon that maintains driving enjoyment. My parents had one for a while and I always liked driving it, though I dreaded the repair bills it generated. Still, I’d rather drive one of these and fix it often than end up in a Q5. They can even tow a reasonable amount of weight if you’re looking for a track hauler – just make sure both the car and trailer are light.

The question is, which Road would you take?

Tale of two Audis: 2000 A4 1.8T Quattro Avant and and 2000 A6 2.7T 6 Speed

509

We feature a fair amount of “S” versions of Audis, but there are some great options if you’re not looking for the flash or repair bills of the bigger brother models. In some cases, I really think these models will be collectable or at very least sought after in the future. They’re also a stark reminder of what we’ve lost in the past decade, because in their own way each of these cars has been discontinued in the United States by Audi. Today we’ll look at the last of the manual A6s, a C5 2.7T A6 Quattro 6 speed and a reminder to when Audi imported small wagons with a B5 1.8T Quattro Avant 5 speed. They’re also stellar deals below $6,000. Let’s start with the 6 speed sedan:

2000 AUDI A6 QUATTRO! 2.7T, AWD, 6 SPEED, MANUAL, SPORT, MUST SEE!

This car strikes me as a great deal and fairly undervalued. At $5,000, this is a lot of car, effectively a S4 in a more dignified suit. The 6 speed manual A6s are a joy to drive and really the last of the breed, as the manual option was completely discontinued in the U.S. after this model. With nearly 130,000 miles I’d expect some repairs in the future, but even given a healthy repair budget this car still is a lot of value for the money. $5,000 would get you into an S4, but that car would likely have close to 200,000 or more miles and throws a very different vibe than the A6. As I said in previous posts, this car is really the spiritual successor to the much-loved C4 S4/S6 and deserves more respect than the market gives it. Looking for something a little smaller and more versatile? How about a B5 A4 wagon?

The B5 saw the introduction to U.S. shores of the small Audi wagon; a decade on, Audi has decided that all roads lead to Allroads and has removed this option from our pallet. That’s a shame, because for a while the A4 really cornered the small sporty wagon category. Equipped with the V6 these were sedate and luxury-oriented tourers, but with the 1.8T and manual, the A4 felt small and drove more like a GTi. If anything, the weight of the Avant over the rear wheels really helps out balancing some of the understeer inherently dialed into the Audi platform:

Internet Special
2000 AUDI A4 1.8T AVANT TURBO WAGON QUATTRO B5 5SPEED NAVIGATION KW COILOVER APR

With some modifications to this already-Sport package equipped wagon, this is a desirable package. The APR goodies will up the power and make this car more fun, the KW coilovers are great in the twisties, and while black isn’t the option that I’d choose this car certainly looks great. I love the Speedline-option wheels for the sport package; as one of our readers noted they suit the design very well and look great while not standing out too much. Unfortunately this dealer hasn’t provided many photos of this car, but it’s priced below most of the market for similar mile A4 Avants, and like the A6 even factoring in some maintenance this appears to be a solid package for a daily driver with some spirit.

Honestly, I’d have a hard time choosing between these two; I love the A6’s combination of speed and style but the C5 chassis is not my favorite looker. On the other hand, I think the B5 A4 was better looking than the B6 that replaced it, but I’d really like to see more photos of this Avant before putting a bid on it. At these prices, though, either one seems like a good package and lots of fun. Which would you choose?

2002 Audi S6 Avant 6-speed

509

The other day I wrote up a questionably modified 2JZ-GTE swapped M5 that, while it wasn’t to everyone’s taste, had clearly undergone some pricey modifications. Well, today we have another rare ride that has gone under the knife for a pricey swap few engage in. While C5 S6 and RS6s came to the U.S. in automatic-only format, the seller of this 2002 S6 Avant has ripped out the ZF unit and swapped in a O1E 6 speed. The addition of the 6 speed to either an S6 or S8 on these shores sure makes the choice of which fast executive car to buy more complicated! While some of the other mods may not be to your liking, let’s see if we can redeem it a bit:

First things first – while I’m not a fan of the matte white paint, I could probably live with it, if it wasn’t for the wheels. I’ve made it no secret that I’m not really a fan of black wheels, and these horrible units look like something that should be adorning a Chrysler 300 or Dodge Magnum wagon. I can’t stand them. Swap on something from the factory, though – such as these S6 wheels linked below, and the story might change quickly as to how you feel about the rest of the car:

Further, replace the poorly painted grill with an RS6 grill on Ebay and those smoked taillights with some OEM taillights and I think the rest of the car is pretty liveable. Sure, it has a salvage title, so you probably want to delve into why that’s the case and if the repairs – most likely to the front – were carried out correctly, but this isn’t an aluminum A8/S8 so I’d be a little less concerned about that.

The S6 isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, and usually that comes down to the transmission. Alleviate that problem and you’ve got a fast large wagon that can be had on a budget. Considering the quotes I’ve seen on manual swaps for the C5 and D2 range from $6,000 to $9,000 having this swap completed not only changes the character of the car but saves the future owner a lot of potential transmission headaches. If you’re feeling brave and can sport for some extra dough to “fix” the modifications, this car could be a stellar deal.

V8 Week: 2003 Audi RS6

In the rarefied world of German super-sedans, the launch of the Audi C5 RS6 took the category to a new level. With 450 turbocharged horsepower on tap, this was a super car in disguise capable of destroying the competition in stoplight drag races and high-speed Autobahn blasts while offering comfort for 4 people and being useable year-round in any weather event. Try that with your Lamborghini, Ferrari, or even pre-Panamera Porsche. Like most super-sedans, once the warranty was up the residual value fell quicker than the massive brakes could haul it down from speed, and now these beasts can be had in prime condition for not much money. Today’s 2003 example looks particularly stealthy in popular Ebony Black:

My 2003 Audi RS6 MTM is for sale. I am the third owner and have owned the RS6 for about 3 years. This car was a present from me to me and was appreciated more as a piece of art than a form of transportation. That would explain the low miles I’ve put on it during our time together (about 4,000 miles). All previous owners are from around Tampa Bay area.

When it comes to maintaining my baby, expenses are never spared, as I like to keep all of my vehicles in immaculate condition. My Ebony Black RS6 is fully loaded with every possible option including:

· Ebony Black interior with

· Alcantara® and

· Carbon Fiber

· Navigation

· Satellite Radio

· Sport Exhaust with Black Tips

· Cold Weather package with

· Solar Sunroof

Additionally, my precious RS6 had some work done by the MTM go-to-guys, Hoppen Motorsport in Sarasota, FL. There, it received the MTM upgrades done. These upgrades increased the numbers to over 500HP and a top speed of over 185MPH. I have never had the desire to find out what 185 MPH feels like as I am plenty scared of the RS6 at regular speeds.

Additional Items:

During my ownership, the following items were repaired or replaced:

Dunlop Sport 245 / 45ZR18 96Y XL High Performance RunFlat Tires
The alternator was replaced
Both Intercoolers were refurbished
Both MAF sensors were replaced
Vacuum lines were replaced
Recall about the fuel tank was also performed at Crown Audi of Clearwater
New Battery was installed by Crown Audi of Clearwater
Oil changed with about 9000 miles before next service

The winning bidder will have ten ( 10 ) business days to finalize the deal, that is two ( 2 ) weeks. Deposit is non-refundable and is to be sent via PayPal. The rest of the funds are to be exchanged at the time of pickup in the form of a Cashier’s Check (certified from US bank) or CASH in person.

Please ask any questions you might have.

This particular example has been modified by the Hoppen gang with MTM software, giving this car a bit more scoot (as if it needed that). Long term there are plenty of items to be concerned about, but the amount of performance you get for low 20s is pretty incredible. At least on the highway and back roads, this is a car that can keep up with a similarly priced M5, surprise it from most stoplights, and be useable when the sun isn’t shining. Sure, you lose the manual that the M5 has, but you gain the best part of 100 horsepower. For some folks, that’s what matters more – being able to toast that 911 turbo out of the tollbooth. Having driven a few of these on the track (along with E39 M5s), they’re also quite capable of holding their own against an M5 if properly driven, though they tend to run out of brake and overwhelm their tires earlier than the boys from Munich.

We would be remiss in not featuring an RS6 in V8 week, since it’s one of the more spectacular versions of a V8 platform that’s been available to US buyers in recent history. Ownership won’t be cheap or trouble-free, but honestly once the horsepower numbers crest 300, the bills will start adding up on any 10 year old car regardless of the badge that’s on the back. If you’d like to take the road slightly less traveled than the E39 Highway, this may just be the car for you!

2001 Audi A6 2.7T quattro

We don’t often speak about future collectables at GCFSB, as it’s usually hard to tell what will end up there. This car, however, is one that I think will probably end up being more of a cult-classic than it is currently – the short lived A6 2.7 Twin Turbo 6 speed. Like it’s little-brother-with-a-bigger-attitude S4, the silky smooth yet potent V6 mated to a manual made for an entertaining sports sedan and the spiritual successor to the C4 S4/S6. In the U.S., the C5 S6 was V8 and automatic only; the RS6 was V8 and automatic only, and while you could get the V6 TT 6 speed in the Allroad, not everyone wants to float on air (*or not) in a wagon. Flying lower on the radar, like most Audis from this generation depreciation took its toll quickly and many of these were snapped up second hand and not maintained. Thus, it has become rare to see one of the 6 speed A6s come up to market in good condition, but today’s example looks great in the classic Ming Blue:

To me, this car makes an excellent alternative to the S cars. While they exhibited less exterior attitude than the M cars and AMG models, the S cars are none-the-less well known by enthusiasts and non-enthusiasts alike now. If you truly want a Q-ship and to fly low on the radar, this car does it – it’s effectively an S4 underneath but appears to be just a normal A6 on the surface. Some of these cars came with the pretty and ridiculously light BBS RC 17″ wheels, and unfortunately this isn’t one of them, though they could be sourced easily enough if you were interested. Still, with those non-sport alloys on there, it’s even more of a sleeper.

I’m a big fan of clean cars, and this car appears to be very clean. The headlights seem to have suffered none of the typical A6 solar degradation, the paint shines new and looks free of damage, and the interior looks just about unused. As the owner of a B5.5 Passat, that’s a tough thing to manage, as the soft touch plastics used in these generations by VAG are easy to damage and show wear quickly. The seller mentions the car was dealer serviced and garaged, both pluses. The ad does mention red exterior which means it was probably a cut and paste, but as I’ve made similar mistakes I can’t really fault them all that much for that one. I think in the future these will be harder cars to come by and if kept in good condition, I doubt this particular example will depreciate much more, if not even slightly appreciate. It represents a blank slate that you can either keep in stock, pristine form or go crazy with mods and blow the doors off just about anything in just about any weather.

Wagon Week: 2004 Audi RS6 MTM Avant

I’m just going to get this out of the way now: this is my favorite wagon. Ever. This is the cream of the Euro-only crop that I have lusted after for years. Even the RS6 sedan gets my heart racing when I see the big lower intakes and wide fenders rolling down the road, very similar to an A6 3.0 but just beefy enough to hint at the craziness going on under the hood. And as if the not-for-US-consumption RS6 Avant weren’t badass enough, this one has been tuned by Motoren Technik Mayer, one of the premier German tuning firms. These loonies made a double-engined TT Bimoto that went 232 mph. Yeah, um, resume accepted.

This grey beauty looks fantastic on stock Euro RS6 19″ wheels and has a “mild” tune of 500hp, while in Clubsport form MTM can make an earth-displacing 580hp and 598 lb-ft. A 200mph wagon? That’s what Wagon Week is all about. It’s for sale in Germany, but with €17,750 exchanging for roughly $23k, this is the steal heard ’round the world. See you guys later, I’m moving to Europe.

Year: 2004
Model: RS6 MTM
Engine: Biturbo 4.2l V8
Transmission: 6-speed automatic
Mileage: 139,000 km (~ 86,000 miles)
Price: €17,750 (~ $23,000 USD)

2004 Audi RS6 MTM Avant for sale on eBay Germany

Hello eBayers, I’m selling my super Audi RS6 Avant MTM. It has a power boost to 500 hp, but since that is not registered it can not be assigned, so I open it with the original 450 HP and top speed. The top speed is certainly there, as I have been briefly to 300 km/h. The Turbos run smoothly and the transmission shifts smoothly and cleanly. Thus it has more torque, but one should not make light kick downs. I always drive it when it’s warm and sunny out.

After each ride, I will always run after the turbos, so nothing happens! I know how expensive things can be in the RS6, if something breaks, and that’s why I’m very good with my stuff. It is accident free, but a new rear bumper is seen in the Audi history. There was no collision damage. The previous owner had taken time PDC despite a low pillar.

The timing belt is stamped in the service book and the material certificates, etc. I have it all. It was not done by Audi. Things that necessarily don’t take away from the RS premium. When I did the oil change recently, I was shocked at what the stupid oil filter costs. It has the same as the normal V8 but only has a different part number. An RS6 it costs 25.00 euros and 10.00 euros in normal V8. What nonsense. I can understand if you don’t do everything at the authorized workshop! Front discs and pads are new 15,000 miles ago, as are the rear brake pads. The tires are Bridgestone Potenza Extra Load and have around 50% profile.

The DRC suspension has no problems. I had the car on the lift recently and looked at the tie rods and axles, so everything is OK. It was only noted that the back connecting rod (rubber mount) are no longer the best and that I can replace them. My buddy has a garage and can make one for me. Only had to pay material and a six pack of beer :o))

Otherwise, there is nothing wrong with the paint. Here and there a little track use, but no deep scratches, dents, etc. It really is in great condition. Get in and drive off without hesitation. There is a lot of other information than what I’ve offered here, but the fun factor is indescribable. Downshifted at 180, hit the gas pedal, or by F1 paddle (makes it more fun and direct with the paddle) and you’re still pressed into the seat at 250 km/h without flinching. From then on, you must have both hands on the wheel, before that everything is easy :o)

New vehicle owners were Audi, then a doctor, and before me was a self-employed roofer, a car salesman and then me. I count myself as the third owner. I also have a garage where it is kept warm and dry :o))

Here are the amenities: deluxe automatic air conditioning, leather interior with Recaro sport seats, front and rear heated seats front and rear seats, front electric. Adjustable Bi-Xenon Plus headlamps with headlight cleaning system, electric glass sunroof, Bose sound system, tire pressure monitoring system, front and rear parking sensor, ten airbags, exterior and interior mirrors automatic. dimming, folding electric mirrors, alarm system with interior monitoring, ski bag, adaptive damper system, sports suspension with variable damping, board computer, Alcantara roof liner in black, multifunction leather steering wheel with shift paddles, lumbar support Electr., light package, radio-CD with CD changer, cruise control, electric immobilizer, 19″ alloy wheels, ESP, four-wheel drive, 3rd owner (1st owner was for two months), full service history, following repairs were made:

Gear oil change at 125,000 km
New Alternator
New front left boot
Changed rear stabilizers
Front wishbones, both sides
Castrol oil change at 121,000 km
Air service this year
Private sale without warranty or return

Truly the only thing that could make this more my dream is a manual transmission. Style, speed, mods, everything – I love it. I really can’t believe the price, and if it were in the US I would be seriously considering selling my truck and M5 for this RS6. Why have two cars when one can do it all better and faster?
