Tuner Tuesday Double Take – Boosted Gems: 1995.5 Audi S6 Avants

Though they may not generate the gasps and pleasure groans of the RS models Craig and Andrew wrote up last week among enthusiasts outside of the brand, classic Audi fans in the U.S. still regard the original S4 and S6 one of the best models produced by the company. Indeed the S6 Avant has gained notoriety as a “Holy Grail” for fans of the marque here, as it offered the ultimate development of the C4 chassis and inline-5 coupled to analogue all-wheel drive offered in this market. Only a few hundred of these wagons made it here, increasing the mystique and desirability of the package. Both of today’s examples are presented in the defacto signature color of the C4, Emerald Green Mica (Smaragdgruen Pearl) with Ecru leather and both have been turned up a notch from stock. The first example has all the wizz-bang completed, while the second has been maintained and is ready for further upgrades. Which is the one you’d like?

FS: Exceptional1995.5 URS6 Avant with everything a performance oriented enthusiast needs

After 10 years of URquattro ownership I am selling my avant.

I am looking to get 12,000.00 for the car. This car has been my daily driver since I purchased it in June 2012.

History:
Car has been in OH and QC. Owned by enthusiast and currently in Montreal Qc. I will be happy to bring the car in the US for shipping as I am only 1 hr from Champlain NY. Built as a euro clone with 330 WHP & 320 WTQ power level UrS6 combined with the reliability of a daily driver, the car spools at @3000rpms and pulls hard to 7200rpm redline. No expense has been spared regarding maintenance and upgrades.
Current car is garaged as it has been replaced by current daily driver. All exterior surfaces present very well, with proper care over my years of ownership. The car is emerald green on ecru, paint is a1 with bright clear coat absolutely no rust spots. AC and heat both work as they should. Euro Headlights are clear and bright. Wheels genuine BBS RK2 with S6 17’s for winter. All rubber, plastic, and glass are in good condition. No cracks in dash. Sunroof doesn’t leak. The interior is clean. Seats replaced in 2013 with S4 seats. Dash lights are all bright. Head unit Becker Cascade BE 7944 has all modern conveniences. Integrity is still very high, no rattles. Alarm works, key fob works. There are no fluid leaks, and doesn’t use oil.

Maintenance : Everything was done well rightaway.Car has only known mobil syntec 5-40. Service records from purchase available.

Plus+++

Our readers Jason and John both spotted this well presented and heavily modified Avant. The 034 mods coupled with the European S6 bits make this look and perform more like the S6 Plus we never got. Generally I’m a huge BBS fan but the graphite RKIIs look a bit cheap though they’re light and expensive; I’d opt to run the C5 wheels, personally. $12,000 is higher in the marketplace but not unheard of for such an Avant, though it’ll take just the right buyer to plunk down that amount for this one.

I am parting with a rare URS6 Wagon in the not so rare color combo of Emerald with Ecru interior. I am the second owner and purchased it September 2013 as a ski car. It is largely stock with reliability upgrades done (silicone boost hoses, A6 Brake Booster, Redline Power Steering Fluid, V8 Coil Conversion). This is the 1995.5 model that includes the 3rd row seating, solid headrests and non-lockable rear diff. Overall the exterior is an 8/10 with minor blemishes from gravel used in the Colorado winters, little rust and is a joy to work on. The interior is an 9/10 with the redyed ecru leather and very minimal wear. Mechanically it is 10/10, All issues addressed.

Need
— Windshield, took a rock during the winter but cracks are out of view

Highlights of Work Performed
— Interior Refresh (Leather Redyed with Leatherique custom mix, Walnut Satin cleared, Door Fabric)
— Driveshaft replaced
— V8 Coil Conversion with fabricated harness
— Bumper Front Fiberglass Cap added to lower bumper to fix damage and reinforce for winter
— Front control arms and wheel bearings replaced
— Brakes serviced with New Front rotors and Front and Rear Mintex Brake Pads
— Brake Booster converted to Vacuum from A6, All new parts (bomb removed)
— Brakes lines replaced with stainless braided from ECS
— Rear Diff Fluid Replaced with Royal Purple
— Rear Suspension inspected and worn bushings replaced
— Power steering Fluid replaced with Redline fluid, X-plug replaced
— Engine PCV system inspected and valves replaced
— Engine Intake inspected and Silicone hoses installed
— Engine Cam Position Sensor Replaced
— Engine Timing belt service performed at 125k
— Headlights disassembled, cleaned and High Output Halogens installed
I have a list of all the work done during my ownership. This is the perfect platform to start moding. It is strong and reliable.

I don’t know Kelly, but I like Kelly. Kelly has presented this car extremely well and priced it right. Maintenance is right on and outlined well, the pictures are descriptive and unapologetic, and the car is not heavily modified but has been upgraded in the right spots. Miles are higher than the more heavily modified first example, but with a lower price and in more original form, it would be the one I’d prefer of the two. Which would you take?

Thanks to our readers John and Jason for sending the top listing in!

  1. This one is very easy for me. I would take the second, mostly stock, S6 Avant. I fact I might even pay a premium for a more stock example. The only negative is that its in CO, which means that it has most likely been sand blasted on i70. That said, it does look great. I would love another one, but emerald over ecru would be way down on my list. That said,t its not about colors anymore with these fantastic cars, its more like get one when you can.

  2. I like the door fabric! BTW new A4s come in this color again.

  3. I’ve seen the second and would take the first. The second has been solidly maintained but is coming up on a timing belt service (due in 5k miles or so), is still on the original clutch (due to go out in the next 10-15k miles unless my “feel” is off) and hasn’t yet had the heater core replaced (common failure at/around the mileage on the vehicle). It presents very nicely though – at least aside from the new custom door cards installed by the seller (a bit of an acquired taste in style, I’d say).

  4. I have a 95.5 Europa Blue/Ecro since new and would love to get a complete parts car. Still there?
