Umm, yeah...about that steering wheel...
forgot to mention - both bags are blown and the wheel is bent. The
passenger bag obviously wrecks the dash and the windshield.
Thanks for the plug on the motor price, Chris. I hope it is slightly on the
cheaper side of fair. The missing ecu is a negative; pulling it yourself
can be a plus or a minus - it's work, but you can label and take what you

Tom: great price on the motor. I see no problem with listing classifieds
here, as long as they are specific to conversions etc.
If you're willing to part it, there are other parts people doing conversions
might like (3-spoke steering wheel, front hubs, etc.).

After some soul searching, I have decided to hold off on my es2 project for
a while. I just bought an A6 wagon that is going to require an infusion of
cash and time to sort out, and I have an S6 on its way out from California
that will require tons of time (fortunately I already have parts for most of
the planned mods). And the Coupe still needs to have its nose straightened.
This, I find, is more than enough for one man.
I have already invested in a crashed S6 with 89k on it for a donor. I will
list in the classifieds soon, and I know it is generally a " no - no" to
post classifeds here, but I wanted to give you guys first shot at it. I
will sell whole or parts. The ECU is missing, first gear makes noise, and
the Avus wheels have been removed, but there is plenty left. I'd like to
move this fairly quickly and I am thinking that $3000 would take the car, or
$2500 would the engine and wiring. The car was hit hard on the frame rail,
and the intercooler is toast, but the timing belt is unscathed. The car is
in CT and I have a decent shop if you want to remove the engine here (lift,
engine hoist, air, refridgerator). I would like to keep the Bilstein front
strut inserts for my S, if possible.
I am still hoping to do this swap at some point, but the cards seem to be
stacked against it right now. Sorry for the WOB.
