1995 Audi A6 2.8 quattro Avant – REVISIT

509

Last fall we featured a 1995 Audi A6 that was in great shape for a low price. Life changed a bit for the seller and after a few weeks on the market he pulled the advertisement and drove the car for the past year. The seller is once again ready to part ways; there are a few additional miles that were accrued but the seller has adjusted the price accordingly and also performed a complete timing belt service. If you’d like a lot of style, class and a smooth performer in any condition capable of carrying a massive load, this A6 looks the part and is ready for the next owner. It’s hard to get a much nicer, more capable car for less money.

It’s easy to get caught up in the hype of the top-of-the-range cars from manufacturers; BMW’s M division, Mercedes-Benz’s bonkers AMG specialists, and the folks of the S division at Audi. They build super versions of the regular production cars that grab all the attention, and sometimes the truly good automobiles those screamers are based on reside in the shadows of the headlines. Such is the case with the Audi C4 100/A6 2.8 quattro. Available in either sedan or avant wagon, the A6 picked up the reigns from the W124 Mercedes-Benz wagon; offering a slick package, more than enough luxury and refinement without anything you didn’t need, and had that 3rd row seat option that was not offered in the Audi Type 44 “fastback” wagons. This made the A6 a great option for larger families looking for dependable all-weather transportation. Consequently, as the family truckster of choice for a generation not many remain in good shape, but today’s period correct Emerald Green on Ecru Avant for sale from our reader Tom sure stands out from most:

Original description:
Beautiful Audi A6 Avant in Emerald Green with Ecru leather interior. I recently purchased the car from the original family. I have all maintenance records since new. Car has always been garaged kept and it shows. Passenger seats have never even been sat in. Brand new Michelin tires. Car drives beautifully and smooth! Ice cold A/C. No rust!

Excellent opportunity to own a beautiful old school Audi! There are a couple scratches here and there as to be expected for a car of this year, but overall the car is in excellent condition. Paint shines and interior is gorgeous with little to no wear. Leather is soft and supple. The car has obviously been very well cared for and the stack of receipts indicate that it always received the attention it deserved.

Couple of things I’ve noticed during my ownership: radio does not work (will not power up), rattle in rear hatch, sometimes turn signal does not cancel when turning left, the rear differential is wet and I assume it will need a seal.

Legendary Quattro All Wheel Drive (these cars are phenomenal in the snow)
All weather package: Heated front seats, windshield washer nozzles, door locks
2.8 liter V6 Engine with 172hp

Power Glass Sliding Sunroof
Headlight Washers
Power windows and locks
Speed sensitive power steering
Power adjustable front seats with driver side memory

I could not find a receipt for timing belt/water pump replacement, so the new owner should plan to have this done. If car is purchased with the Buy It Now option, I will replace the timing belt/water pump at no charge prior to delivery.

I reserve the right to end the auction as the car is being listed for sale locally.

Original owners manual and 2 keys. Binder full of maintenance history and receipts.

German luxury at its best! Car is an excellent highway cruiser and a pleasure to drive!

I’m happy to answer any questions! Happy bidding!

With 172 horsepower on tap, the A6 and 100 Quattros – even with automatics – were respectfully quick but wouldn’t light your hair on fire, in the true older Benz manner. Like the older Benzs, it’s specifically because they’re not turned way up that they can be run for many miles without issue. They’re comfortable cruisers with tons of space, are quiet and refined, and can be run easily on a budget – the C4 was heftily overbuilt much like the W124. Also like the W124 they don’t really stand out from the crowd but always look handsome and proper when kept in good shape such as today’s example. The seller is upfront about a few needs, but it’s difficult to replicate the overall condition of this car and would likely give the next owner a long period as a solid workhorse with a touch of class and luxury.

  1. 10 seconds 0-60. Let’s not kid ourselves, this car was slow. I had this same engine in my pre-facelift B5 A4 and it was a honey with a manual and 400 lbs less weight. That said if I saw one of these around (say, a silver example for sale every day as I drive to work) the only thing holding me back would be the transmission.

  2. Yeah, too bad these weren’t available with the 5 spd. that some of the sedans had: http://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/ctd/4634748355.html

  3. That A6Q sedan is a time capsule! It might well outlast all the pre-facelift B5 A4s too, or at least maybe require less maintenance to keep running…
