Wagon Week: 2002 Audi S6 Avant

Before its notable run in the B6 and B7 S4s, Audi’s 4.2l 340hp V8 did a lot of its business in the S6. Until the arrival of the mental V10, I always found the S6 to be a bit underplayed compared with its S4 cousins. This does make it even more of a Q-ship though, equally at home steathily slicing up freeway lines as pounding up snowy mountains. Today’s S6 comes with a reasonable 83k miles and a litany of options including heated seats front and rear to keep the family warm at the ski resort or just to make you feel a little more comfy in traffic. Silver mirrors and some of my favorite wheels of all time suggest the power to those who know, but mostly this is a great way to have some hidden fun in an eminently useful wagon.

Wagon Week: 2001 Audi S4 Avant

The B5 Audi S4 was one of my first cases of wagon-lust. Great looks with just the right amount of aggression, Quattro and a 2.7l twin-turbo V6 all warped my mind as I dreamed of snow-spraying AWD drifts. Today’s car comes in the standard silver and rides on some good-looking late-model RS4 wheels, although there was nothing wrong with the original and classic Avus 6-spokes either. It’s an automatic, unfortunately, but 6-speed S4 Avants are like finding the unicorn that lays golden eggs. 140k miles will keep the price down and your future costs up, but the seller’s lack of engine modification means it hasn’t endured more stress than normal and means that when the engine does eventually need work, it’s probably time for an RS4 conversion!

It’s too bad he chose to shoot with a foggy Kyocera phone at sunset; I bet this thing looks great in person.

This is my well loved and well cared for 2001 Audi S4 Avant. I bought it 6 years ago and it has been my faithful and dependable daily driver ever since. If you are looking at this ad, you probably know about these very desirable performance cars already. Audi LOADED these B5 / S4’s with power everything, including a BOSE premium sound system. The 2.7 BITURBO motor is smooth and powerful, and the QUATTRO full time all wheel drive system delivers control that is unmatched. This is a great driving machine that is amazingly tight and solid, and drives like new – the same as the day I bought it.

This car is very sound. These cars are often modified, but I intentionally kept mine stock for long life and reliability. It was “smogged” in January and passed the stringent California emissions test with flying colors. I am a car enthusiast and have always taken very good care of it, including: ahead of schedule oil changes, regular interior and exterior detailing, garage kept, and I am a non-smoker. My S4 still “shows” very well, and I routinely get questions about it as it’s a great looking cars, and the S4 Avant is very rare in the USA.

The leather interior, carpets, headliner, etc, are all VERY good condition. The AC blows ice cold, and all the power equipment works. Overall this is a very straight car, great to drive as-is, or for an enthusiast to renovate to the next level. The exterior does have a few dings and scratches from city life – but nothing that is too obvious – or that couldn’t be fixed fairly easily if that’s what you chose to do. There are also additional custom rubber floor mats.

Honestly, I would love to keep this car, but I am attending Medical School for the next 3 years, so it’s time to find her a new home. I’m located in San Diego (Mission Bay area) and my preference would be for the buyer to come here to personally look over the car, and take delivery.

I know it may be a cheap sell tactic, but it’s nice to think the owner doesn’t actually WANT to sell the car. Again, the mileage is going to become an issue and makes me wonder where the reserve is. Below $9k this is a good deal on one of my favorite wagons.

2013 Audi allroad

As an Audi enthusaist and a wagon lover, it’s no surprise that I was excited when Audi of America announced the return of the allroad. Like many others I was hesitant to see that it was being released on the A4 platform rather than the larger A6 platform of the previous generation, but once I saw it, all reservations went out the window. Seeing the allroad was love at first sight. The stance, the flares, the grille, and the lines make this one of the most beautiful estate cars on the market.

Audi did it right this time. Anyone familiar with the original allroad knows that they were riddled with problems between the 2.7T and the air suspension. The new allroads save all of the fancy technology for where it counts….the cockpit. The allroad uses the same 2.0l turbo four as the rest of the A4 family coupled to the silky smooth 8-speed tiptronic gearbox, and of course Quattro AWD.

Where the allroad differs from your standard A4 Avant is in the styling with stainless steel front and rear skid plates and offroad inspired fender flares. To complete the offroad capable look, the allroad has a full 7 inches of ground clearance. This car can certainly walk the walk if the owner was so inclined.

This beautiful Phantom Black over black leather allroad for sale in Atlanta is a smoking deal on a lightly used SUV alternative.

Year: 2013

Engine: 2.0 liter inline four

2013 Audi Allroad Premium Plus 2.0T Quattro Tiptronic – AUDI CERTIFIED! Phantom Black Pearl with black leather interior, automatic transmission (8 Speed Tiptronic), only 6K miles, Premium Plus model, MMI Navigation Plus Package, Audi Parking System Plus with rearview camera, Audi Advanced Key, power heated front seats with driver memory, Audi Music Interface (iPod), Bluetooth – Phone/Streaming Audio, Homelink, power tailgate, 3-Zone Climate Control, Audi Connect, CD/DVD Player, Audi Xenon Plus lighting with LED daytime running lights, Panorama sunroof with power sunshade, Sirius Satellite Radio. Absolutely loaded with equipment! One owner vehicle, clean CARFAX. Audi Certified – 6 Year/100K mile warranty from the original in-service date!

For the buyer in the market for an allroad specifically, or just a luxury SUV alternative this is a great deal.  Loaded with options, the original MSRP on an allroad like this is in the neighborhood of $48,000.  This car is Audi certified, and with only 6,443 miles, you get another 93K miles of coverage, or 6 years from in service date, which is less than 6 months ago offering a better warranty than the original factory warranty.  It’s said that new cars depreciate 10% just by driving it off the lot, in most cases that’s bad news, but with a CPO car like this, depreciation is your friend.  With a bit more negotiation, you could likely pick this beauty up for $37K which is a smoking deal.

Ultra Low-Mileage 2001 Audi TT

The 1998 release of the original Audi TT marks the second game-changing shift in the modern history of Audi. The first was obviously the advent of Quattro, and while four-wheel drive on normal cars changed the way every major automaker looked at traction, most Audis continued to be unassuming boxes that most of the world ignored. When the TT came out, it was unlike anything on the road. It referenced the Auto Union racers while taking sports coupe styling straight into the 21st century. With this progressive toy in their pocket, Audi was able to leap into the 2000s perceived as a cooler and classier car company than ever before.

Sure, cynics may choose to focus on similarities with the VW New Beetle (it rode on the same platform, after all), but while the Beetle will be smirked at forever, the TT will stand as remarkable design. Perhaps more notable than the styling is the fact that despite being 12 years old, this TT has covered fewer than 10k miles. Less than 800 miles per year! Combined with great choices like the 225hp turbo with quattro, blocky 5-spokes, and so-dull-it’s-awesome Aviator Gray. You’d be hard pressed to find another TT with fewer miles than its price.

1994 Audi S4

In the early 1990’s, Audi was shaking up their line up and introduced the S4 in 1991 as the performance version of the 100 sedan. Despite sharing its basic structure with the 100, the S4 was intended to take the place of the the discontinued 200 Turbo-Quattro sedan. It wasn’t until the next model year (as always) that the US saw the UrS4. The S4 featured a turbocharged 2.2 L, 20-valve inline 5-cylinder engine that made 227 hp and 258 ft/lb of torque. Standard equipment included Quattro all-wheel-drive and a manual transmission.

After Audi dropped the 100 nameplate and re-badged the car as A6 in 1994, the S4 became the S6, although the only changes to the model were minor cosmetic. It wasn’t until 2001 that the S4 came back as its own model based on the relatively new A4 platform.

1994 Audi S4 on eBay

driversside

1994 Audi S4, very rare blue color, only 500 or so of these made for that year and in blue color I don’t even know how many were made. Clean title, clean Carfax, no accidents! This car is in excellent condition for a 1994. The body is free from any major dents or dings just a couple minor door dings. The interior is clean, the leather does not have any rips in it and has held up well over the years. The dash does not have any cracking or fading and all the wood trim is intact also without any issues. Everything in this car works from the headlights to the taillights. All windows function properly and everything locks properly as well including the keyless entry. Everything on this car is all original no modifications whatsoever and no pieces missing except for the magazine for the CD changer. The car runs great the turbo spools nicely without any hesitation and it feels very strong along with the clutch which also grabs strong and has no grinds or popouts. Brakes still have about 70% life remaining along with the tires which are also about 70% remaining. If you would like some more pictures please send me your email and i will get them to you thank you.

Normal flaws for this car include:

Splintering in paint on the hood only (hard to show in pictures)
Wear on driver seat bolster nothing serious just regular wear and tear over the years.
Low windshield washer fluid warning light is always on unless completely filled to top

Timing belt was done at around 110k but unfortunately, I do not have receipts for this car. It was my stepfathers and it was meticulously maintained anything that was ever wrong with it was taken care of right away that is why it is in such good condition the way it sits today.

While not the most pristine UrS4 I’ve seen, this could be a great project for someone looking to put a little elbow grease in to it. The blue over ecru leater is a great combination and a nice departure from the green cars that seem to have flooded the S4 market. The maintenance history is one of the only things that would concern me about this car. Without documentation, it’s is tough to discern that the T-belt was done 50K miles ago, as well as other issues. That aside, this car would be a good solid buy at $5,000 to $6,000.

1985 Audi 4000S Quattro – REVISIT

The Audi 4000S Quattro we featured last November is back up for sale with a lowered Buy it Now price of $11,300 from the original asking price of $13,000. Will a bit of a discount be enough to move this four-door, all-wheel drive modern classic?

1985 Audi 4000S Quattro on eBay – REVISIT

The below post originally appeared on our site November 23, 2012:

With Ur Quattro prices on the rise, where’s an Audi enthusiast to turn for affordable, all-wheel drive fun. The 4000S Quattro is a good place to start. The compact sedan of Audi’s range, the 4000S Quattro appeared in 1984 with a 2.2 liter five cylinder engine and the all important all-wheel drive system. I’ve seen few of these for sale in good condition, but this car for sale in Chicago has under 50,000 miles on the clock and looks rather tidy.

1985 Audi 4000S Quattro on eBay

1985 Audi 4000S Quattro, 46.247 Original miles. Black with Brown interior. I am the second owner of the vehicle since August 2011, the car was parked in a garage since 1996 to the summer of 2011 when I got it. Original paint in very good condition whit some dings here and there,expected for a car with this age and 98% body rust free just on the suspension side there is rust as shown in some pictures. Original Brown interior in perfect condition. Flawless crack free dash, Clarion head unit with bluetooth, USB and jack connection. Polk speakers in the back. Perfect headliner. All electronic systems in proper working condition. Windows, Cruise control, A/C and heater, sunroof, wipers, etc. All glass and trim in very good undamaged condition and tinted windows on the back.

All service and maintenance are current. Belts, hoses,brakes, bushings, fuel systems, H&R springs, KYB shocks, etc. Brand new exhaust and muffler. Newer summer tires and rims on 16 inch with around 2000 miles, plus brand new winter tires on the original wheels. Car drives and runs perfectly. A/C blows cold. I do have the factory cassette stereo in proper working condition.The only problem that I don’t like is that one fuel line got broken and instead of having a solid metal fuel line there is a rubber hose line.

1. Car located in Chicago Illinois

2. Clear title in hand

3. Payment dun in 3 days or less via PayPal

4. Buyer is responsible with the pick up or shipping of the vehicle

The tinted windows, dark gray paintwork and aftermarket wheels give this car a nice fresh look but are not overly modern for its decidedly 1980s looks. While it has low mileage, $13,000 is way out of line with current 4000S Quattro values. At the very high end, you might get $6,000 or so for a clean, low mileage car like this. Most 4000S Quattros in decent condition that I’ve seen for sale in the last year have ranged from $3,500 to $5,500. Barring the high price, it’s nice to see there are still some of these versatile sedans left roaming the earth.

2007 Audi RS4

With an original MSRP just a tick under $70K, the RS4 is something that an ordinary Joe like myself could only fantasize about owning. The naturally aspirated, 420 bhp V-8 that revs to 8250 rpm with an exhaust note that rivals that of any super-car is an absolute enthusiasts dream. With the six-speed manual as the only available gearbox, highly tuned suspension and a lap time around the Nurburgring just over the eight minute mark, what is not to love about this masterpiece…oh yeah…the price.

Luckily 5 years later these cars are attainable in the used market with prices coming down to reality.  This stunning Sprint Blue over Black leather RS4 for sale in Tempe, AZ is a clean example of an affordable super-sedan.

2007 Audi RS4 on eBay

To the ordinary consumer, the 2007 Audi RS4 represents a bit of a mystery. Why would someone pay $66,000 for the RS4 when the basic A4 goes for only $28,240? The A4’s 2.0L 200-horsepower engine is a fine one, and who needs more?Well some folks just like to go a bit faster than their fellow drivers. For them, Audi makes the 340-horsepower S4 V8. For $47,500 you get a four-door sedan that will surprise drivers of many midlevel sports cars at impromptu traffic light derbies.But if you want to go hunting bigger game, Audi offers the $66,000 RS4. Audi has taken a lot of their Le Mans-winning racing technology and funneled it into this limited-production special. The 4.2L V8 will rev to a lofty 420 horsepower, and make fully 90% of its 317 lb-ft of torque at just a bit over 2,000 rpms.But the RS4 is not just a one-trick pony. A fully hydraulic dynamic ride control not only limits body lean to enhance the RS4’s cornering capabilities, but also delivers a surprisingly good ride.Audi has tuned the RS4’s quattro AWD system for maximum performance and it allows a bit more wheel spin for improved acceleration. The electronic stability control is also programmed to allow a smidge more tail-hanging-out fun, than in the A4. This 8.0 version of Audi’s ESP even incorporates a brake rotor drying function in the latest potion of electronic wizardry.There aren’t a lot of overt touches to the outside of the RS4 to give away the performance potential. Larger tires, unique wheels and some potent exhaust pipes are the main clues to the curious onlookers. Inside you’ll find a few more signs of just how unique the RS4 is. Genuine carbon fiber is used in tasteful doses as accents. The sport seats are built by the world famous Recaro brand. They provide opulent comfort and also hold you tightly when you take your RS4 through your favorite twisties. The pedals are covered with alloy bright work with rubber inserts for better traction.There is even a “Sport” button that changes the throttle mapping for even faster response; and it opens the V8’s exhaust system some for an even more ominous rumble.The RS4 has the usual standard luxury touches one expects from Audi: sunroof, xenon self-leveling lights, power all around, climate control, rear park assist, and a six-disc CD changer. A Premium Package adds navigation, auto-dimming mirrors, a memory feature for seats and mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, Bluetooth, power rear sunshades, Sirius satellite radio, and a Bose sound system. Rear side air bags are also optional.The Audi RS4 is not for everyone. But, for those lucky few who want AWD supercar performance, without the discomfort of a low-slung two-seater, the RS4 may be the peak of desire.

Now I know what you’re thinking $34K for a car with 72K miles, ridiculous….and in many cases you’d be correct. Not in this case. We’re talking RS4 here, the 4 door version of the R8. Well, almost. The RS4 is certainly a stunning performer and in Sprint blue, it’s a looker too. This car is priced a tick high for the mileage as I’ve seen cars in the 60K mile range for about the same price. No matter what the price, these cars will definitely have longevity in the Audi circles, and I suspect the depreciation will be very slow.

1992 Audi UrS4

The UrS4 is where it all started for Audi’s S program in the US. With turbo 5 cylinder power and Quattro AWD this was the beginning of an era for Audi; an era that is still going strong. These days it’s becoming incresingly rare to see one of these cars as clean as this black on black S4 for sale in WA state.

1992 Audi UrS4 on audifans.com

Selling a very clean, well maintained, rare UrS4. Possibly the first one that came into the U.S. due to the VIN. Car is black on black, which is one of 50 in this color combo for the year. 148k original. For 20 years old, thats quite low. Only owned, and driven by pure enthusiasts. Bible of maintenance history. Car has never been in an accident, original paint and clearcoat in exceptional condition. Body is laser straight, not one scratch or door ding ever. Always garaged.

Upgrades include RS2 turbo, RS2 exhaust manifold, RS2 green top injectors, software, fuel regulator. Samco black silicone hoses. Custom front mount intercooler, comparable to the Apikol one, yet was made to fit correctly under the front bumper, while retaining the factory bumper grills. Porsche Big Black 4 piston calipers which are needed on a 170mph car. Bilstein struts with lifetime warranty. Powder coated black valve cover. Last timing belt jobe less then 30k ago. Wheels professionaly refinished with warranty. Properly relayed and wired headlights with HID balasts, foglights can run with highs/lows, rockguard on lenses. Dual rear fogs for brake checking, at the touch of a button. All integrated of course. S2 3 spoke steering wheel (original included as well). Not a beverage ever spilt on the interior. Ghost fuel pressure and boost pressure gauges mounted in glovebox. Bose stereo completely overhauled, with OE specs, sounds great. 10 disc in trunk. Everything works flawlessly on the car, inluding heat, A/C, sunroof, cruise, all heated seats, every single light and gauge.

Intentionally professionally built as a daily driver, yet capable on the autobahn. You wouldnt know its pumping 350hp unless you hit the throttle, and hold the hell on. Drives straight, smooth. Runs perfect, looks perfect. No disapointments. This is the ultimate sleeper. 509-869-1669

Pricing on this car isn’t as simple as KBB.com, because if it were, we’d be looking at a $5,000 car. These cars have a huge following with Audi and German car enthusiasts the like and with cars like this becoming increasingly rare, a premium is being paid. Having traveled only ~7,500 miles per year its whole life this gently worn S4 offers all of the right options and upgrades to command a top dollar in the UrS4 market. While not as desirable as the pearl white, a black on black S4 is a close second in desirability. Couple that with the RS2 upgrades and immaculate condition, and this car is with the $11K price all day long.

1994 Audi RS2

In my spare time, I collect 1:18 scale model cars. Living in an urban area with limited parking, it’s a way of enjoying some of my favorite vehicles on a smaller scale. One recent acquisition to my collection was an Audi RS2 made by a specialty manufacturer out of France. I’ve always admired this collaboration between Audi and Porsche, especially when they are painted in the iconic Nogaro blue. In another six years, these cars will begin to be legal for importation into the US. Unfortunately, by that time the prices on these cars will surely have skyrocketed. That’s not at all surprising, given a short two year production run with under 3,000 produced.

This RS2 for sale in Barcelona was treated to a recent restoration to the tune of over €20,000.

1994 Audi RS2 for sale on Mobile.de

Audi RS2 totally restored in December 2011. New engine with 9500 km (current 210,000). Newly painted. Aesthetically perfect. I have the invoices of repair for value (+20000 Euros). Brakes 8 calipers and rims 18″ Porsche 993 turbo with Bridgestone 235/35/18. Exhaust MTM. Metallic catalyst 200. Xenon kit. Bluetooth.

While it doesn’t wear its original Porsche Cup wheels, the 993 Turbo style wheels don’t look out of place on this fast estate. At over $30,000 USD equivalent, this car isn’t for everyone. For some, it is a drop in the bucket considering the combination of performance and practicality. Look up Q ship in the dictionary, and this five-door, 311 horsepower beast with Porsche DNA would fit the profile.

1987 Audi 4000CS Quattro

Audi sedans of the late-80s just don’t have the performance reputation of Mercedes and BMW, as the most notable reports of their acceleration were when it supposedly happened with no driver input. The good ones, however, started bringing Audi’s secret weapon, something BMW was just beginning to play with and Benz wasn’t into yet. The irreplaceable Quattro on a good-looking sedan set Audi apart, and today’s 4000CS is a great reminder of this. The seller is a bit of Audi fanatic and it shows.

1987 Audi 4000CS Quattro for sale on eBay


Selling a 1987 Audi 4000 cs Quattro. Car is white with gray interior. Great condition car. under 140k. Mint Interior. No rust on this car and its a California Car. New Fuel Pump and Cooling Fan switch. Car runs and drives very well. Takes a try or two on cold starts tho. 5 speed manual, rear diff lock. power windows, locks, sunroof. 138K. MINT interior. Like New, cloth is soft. Bolsters solid. Has been redone and is soft like brand new off the showroom floor. no sun damage or anything, its brand new material..Just installed a brand new driver side rear door handle. All Doors open.:) Brakes work perfect and well. Ebrake works as it should. All calipers have audi rings on them. Exhaust sounds good other than catalytic converter problem. Tires are 75% and matching. All Bushings feel good and Steering is tight. Stereo Works and sounds pretty good. Original Leather Wrap Steering Wheel, Horn Works.
Car does need a catalytic converter, the one thats on it rattles at times and needs replaced. cruise control doesnt work, have the unit to make it work, needs installed. Has H.I.D. Bright Headlights. one side needs bulb. power mirrors seem to work, but the mirror isnt moving barely at all. All Glass is good. Has A/C and it works, but isnt ice cold. Great winter car.
Car has been repainted at some point as it was originally black in color. Whoever did the paintwork did not do the best quality of paint and its not the best. Dont expect a perfect paintjob because it is not. Have lots of pics on photobucket. Go to photobucket or http://s120.photobucket.com/albums/o172/hoopster21/ or search for hoopster21 which is my profile there and go to albums and then its there in the 1987 audi 4000cs Quattro album. I have been selling off my audi’s and I need this one gone as I need the room for another project I have.

I love how this car looks. Even if the paint isn’t perfect, white with black accents and wheels looks perfect (though the emblems on the front quarter are a little too big). A new interior is a great addition, and 140k miles isn’t too bad other than needing a new catalytic converter. The 2.2l isn’t magic at 115hp (25 years ago, no less), but I’d say it’s begging for some VW/Audi plug-n-play. With a $2,700 Buy-It-Now, it’s a great start for what could be an amazing Audi. Even as is, it looks like a good buy to me.
