RE: $4 for sale
The reality of the S4/6 here in the Minneapolis/St Paul area is none of the
cars that have come to market within the last 7 months has been a quick
sale. Carousel Auto had 2 S6s, one black/black w/8k miles and it sat on
their lot for over 6 weeks and also a cashmere/black with 17k miles that
sat on the lot for almost 3 months! The Emerald/Ecru at Sears Auto Darin
referred to in an earlier thread has been sold for 3 weeks, although Darin
was correct, it had been on the lot since last October.
The bottom line; the only people I have found that say S4/6s sell in one
day in the car salespeople at the dealerships. These cars, like ur-qs, as
much as I love them, are weird cars that few people have any idea what the
are. Also, as evidenced by market forces, most people that want a
performance sedan want automatics, not manuals. The S4/6, IMHO, is
destined to soon loose the higher resale value it has recently commanded.
This is not meant a flame mail to S4/6 owners as I have contemplated
purchasing one of these
for some months now. I ended up buying a 93 968 instead. I felt the
Porsche would provide more thrills for the buck.

Why is it that every other Audi has depreciated nicely for us used
car buyers, but the S4 remains high?
