Yin and Yang Double Take: 1995 Audi S6

After looking at a very shiny, and very expensive, S6 last month, two more very nice examples have popped up for sale with a few less questions – and a lot less in terms of asking price. What attracted them both to me, besides the more approachable asks, was that they represent opposites in many ways. We have a Pearlescent White Metallic with Black leather 95.5 equipped with Speedline Avus wheels, and a Black over Ecru 95 wearing Fuchs. It’s interesting to see them both appear at the same time – so which represents the better deal? Let’s start with the 95.5 first:

Check it out! A window sticker! And how about that Audi Personal Navigator? I’ve never seen one of those! Condition appears to be very good overall, but the photos aren’t great and we don’t see much of the up-close detail to make a real assessment. I also find it extraordinarily hard to believe that only 36 were sold in Pearl/Black. No way. I’m not sure where those numbers came from, but that really just doesn’t seem possible. Despite that, this is a really lovely example overall and frankly the $11,000 asking price doesn’t seem all that scary even without a lot of detail. Being a dealer, I think cash would talk and you could probably knock that price down a bit and walk away a happy person. Of course, what if you’ve got a darker side…

Year: 1995
Model: S6
VIN: WAUKA84A3SN033911
Engine: 2.2 liter turbocharged inline-5
Transmission: 5-speed manual
Mileage: 183,500 mi
Location: Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida
Price: No Reserve Auction

1995 Audi S6. 1 of 933 imported. Owned last 16 years. Purchased with 29,990 miles. Best car ever. Runs excellent. 183,500 miles and increasing as it is a daily driver. Issues: throw out bearing wining however clutch still strong; possible rear seal leak; due for timing belt service; other persnickety items. Always garaged and professionally serviced. No accidents. Repainted 6 years ago. Looks great inside and out. Kept original except stage 3+ 2 Bennett ECU ($2,000), stainless steel stabro exhaust and k&n filter. Comes with second set of wheels, stage 1 ECU and other extras. If you know what this car is you will recognize this deal.

So this car also appears to be enthusiast owned, and well cared for. What’s to like? Well, there’s no EDL for one, and it’s got Fuchs. Hands down, for me that’s a better look than the Avus wheels although both are iconic. It has a lot more miles, but it also seems to have a better documented history. And, it’s no reserve and with a few days to go it’s less than half the asking price of the Pearl White car. I’d expect it’ll end much higher, but still – it looks like if you’re in the market it’s worth throwing in on this one to see what the end number is. You might just get a stellar deal, but boy do those headrest covers have to go!

  1. Audi Personal Navigator…never heard of that either. Looks like it was a short lived company: https://forums.quattroworld.com/s4s6/msgs/234952.phtml

  2. I’m with you on the improbably low stated number of Pearl examples. I’d probably also call BS on an estate car having to be sold as TMU. I also inherited an Audi Navigator from an Audi purchased years ago and never knew the back story until now.
