This car runs really strong. Black with beige leather interior. It's amazing in the snow, one of the best vehicles I've ever driven in the snow. It's got about 190k miles on it. It's been well taken care of, I have receipts going all the way back to the original owner. I am pretty sure I am the 3rd owner, I think I have a carfax here for it somewhere. I am selling because I need to buy a truck or suv that can tow a trailer.

The good:

The following parts were recently replaced by 2Bennett whithin the past 4 months:
- heater core
- adjust shifter linkage
- replace a bunch of little interior bulbs
- sunroof panel
- sunroof switch
- thermostat
- replace instrument cluster
- timing belt
- water pump
- crankshaft seal
- camshaft sal
- replace all belts
- suspension was upgraded by previous owner with Koni adjustables and H&R sport springs
- aftermarket exhaust but I can't remember which brand, stebro maybe. it's not that loud but has a really nice deep tone to it, no droning at all
- the power steering pump recently failed but my mechanic should have the replacement pump by wednesday of this week and it will be fixed soon after that
- thule roof rack comes with it, but my attachments probably won't unless you wanted to negotiate those into the price
- Alpine cd player
- really nice leather interior with heated & power seats with 4 way memory setting

The bad:
- It's burning a little bit of oil. I'm running 10w-30 synthetic in it now and I am having to add around a 1/2 quart ever 1,000 - 1,500 miles. My mechanic suggested that if I switched to 20w-50 that the oil consumption would go way down.
- All 4 ball joints should be replaced. These parts are not very expensive and it's a DIY job for most people. It's just a couple of bolts that hold them in place and then you should get the car aligned once they have been replaced
- The catalitic converter has been hollowed out. I don't have a smog check where I live so this isn't an issue but it may be for other people. I was told that before the car passed CA smog check fine but that was before the cat was hollowed out
- fog lights have been removed but wiring is still in place for them
- a few of the interior light switches don't light up, like the ones for the rear window defrost and seat heaters
- passenger side seat heater doesn't work, but drivers side works great
- a squirrel chewed through part of the drivers side left seat bolster. previous owner left beef jerkey in the car with the sunroof open
- rear speakers and nakamichi amp aren't hooked up

- It's missing the front bumper cover.  As you can see in the pictures this was already cracked on one side of the car.  I recently had a small run in with a snowbank and it caused the other side to crack as well. filed a claim through my insurance company and they are going to be cutting me a check. I'd like to just sell the car as is, without having to deal with repalcing the bumper cover. It's a $630 part from audi. I was able to find a used one in good condition from Force 5 Auto for $275 and they were going to charge another $100 to ship it to me.
