I’m wondering if I’d rather have a higher mile B5 in my favorite color, or a lower mile B6 as prices continue to sag slightly on the later V8 cars. Despite the slight drop off in these cars’ prices, the Nogaro Blue B6s still seem to carry a premium as do Avant versions – put them together, and you have the pricest of the B6 chassis cars on the market. Today’s example is no exception, with a strong $16,000 asking price on a claimed 1 of 1 2004 Nogaro/Nogaro S4 Avant:

2004 AUDI S4 S-4 SPORT AVANT WAGON B6 NOGARO BLUE QUATTRO ULTRA RARE 1 OF 1! WOW

In the questions of the car, the seller is asked about the 1 of 1 claim, which they insist is verified by Audi of America. I’m assuming the 1 of 1 means it’s the only Nogaro Blue with Nogaro Blue interior tiptronic equipped avant sold in the U.S. in 2004. Does that make it worth a premium? Well, last week’s S4 faceoff seemed to indicate that most of you don’t want the automatic. As I stated in the write up though, these tiptronic cars aren’t a bad drive at all and retain most of the fun of the S4 while making a stop and go commute a little easier on the leg muscles.

For relatively top dollar, I’d really want to see a rich service history – were this a $10,000 example, I’d be willing to overlook some flaws but not at top dollar. The exhaust and “K&N” sticker on the intake lead me to believe it was probably owned by an enthusiast, though that isn’t necessarily an indication that it was properly maintained or treated well. I think the asking price is a little high; provided the correct documentation, with 110k I’d like to see this car in the $12,000 to $14,000 range. Despite this, it’s a lot of car for Kia Soul money (even if the Kia does come with a warranty) and if it were actually true that it was 1 of 1, it might just be your only option if you like the combination.

    Holy crap, this is my old car… I was the owner who actually put on the K&N sticker and did the exhaust (Magnaflow). The car was great for me for the 2 years I owned it, but traded it in for an Expedition when baby #3 came along. I can assure you it was well maintained in the 2 years I owned it, with only a temp sensor needing to be replaced. Since I got rid of it in 2010 though, can’t comment on maintenance since then. I traded it in with ~83k miles, so it hasn’t traveled a ton in 3 years. I can tell you I also traded it in for a few thousand less than the asking price.

    Kinda curious how it ended up in Florida.

    Hey Matt, thanks for the input – very interesting! Must be kind of neat to see your old car a few years later….2nd chance?

    I would love to still own the car, I do regret selling it, especially after I traded it in for the Expedition and my wife ended up taking that and trading me her car!
