Fast Friday: Audi S4 6-speed manual duo

The meteorologists are predicting a harsh winter for us here on the east coast of the US. But just because the white stuff is coming doesn’t mean you have to give up driving fun for a few months out of the year. Audi is known for being masters at combining all-weather capability with performance with the aid of their quattro four-wheel drive system. For over two decades now, the “S” badge has represented an even higher degree of performance. One of the most popular models has been the S4, first starting out as a high performance version of the 100/A6 model and later transitioning over to the A4 model.

To close out your work week, we’ll take a look at two S4s sedans equipped with 6-speed manual gearboxes, starting with this 2001 S4 in stunning Nogaro Blue for sale in Massachusetts.

2006 Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG Estate

As car enthusiasts, many of us have found ourselves complaining that we can’t have exactly what we want. But sometimes, as the Rolling Stones would say, “you get what you need.” Such is the case with the AMG tuned E-class estates that Mercedes-Benz has offered for about the last decade or so. Your ordinary customer wasn’t going to waltz into the Mercedes showroom and purchase a 469 horsepower five-door monster, but for the family man having issues giving up his sports car, it was the perfect compromise. This 2006 E55 AMG Estate was brought to our attention by our reader Ry and is on offer in Texas at a rather attractive price.

1991 Volkswagen Corrado G60

$_57

Though it sits in a forgotten corner of the enthusiast realm for most of the time, the Corrado will always be a cool car. While the original Scirocco was a stunner, the second generation was a bit dumpy. The Corrado brought great looks and an allegedly transcendent driving experience with some very appealing engine choices, creating a sporty compact FWD hatchback that had many strengths. Price was a downfall, as it may be for today’s example. It looks very nice in a fresh coat of white paint and the matching wheels – sometimes a death knell – look appropriate. Apparently they were part of a $25k-round of investment though, which should be reserved for classic cars and startup companies.

2004 BMW M3 Dinan Supercharged – REVISIT

509

I posted a couple of Laguna Seca Blue E46 M3s yesterday that looked like they were owned and modded by a couple of similarly-minded fanboys. Today, we’ll shift gears and look at one of the most tastefully and maturely modified E46s out there (chrome exhaust surround notwithstanding). Carter featured this car for Tuner Tuesday earlier in the month and it’s received the full Dinan treatment, earning enough points via supercharger, exhaust, suspension, and more to get the official Dinan badge. The badges sit on a custom and beautiful red paint job, with CSL nods in the wheels and trunk spoiler. It has only covered 40k miles in its 10 years and was honored with the cover of BMWCCA’s “Roundel” magazine a couple years back. The seller says its “generally considered to be one of finest E46 M3 in the country,” and it’s hard to argue against that.

Last Call For Summer: Mercedes-Benz Convertibles

The convertible. An automotive guilty pleasure of sorts. Not the most practical of vehicles but with modern day folding hardtops, they have become much more mainstream and practical than they once were. Mercedes-Benz has been in the business of convertibles for years, carrying on even in the dark days of the late 1970s and early 1980s. Currently they offer a few different cabriolets and roadsters to appeal to a broad spectrum of buyers and budgets, from the four-cylinder SLK to the ferocious SLS AMG Roadster.

Today we’ll take a look at four convertibles from Mercedes-Benz’s past, ranging from the early 1970s into the new millennium. We’ll start with a very well cared for 1994 E320 Cabriolet for sale in Pennsylvania, arguably one of the most collectable W124s currently, notwithstanding the 500E/E500.
