Few pics of the car from BEFORE I lowered it. Trying to find time to snap some more recent ones. Also lots of detailed pics of the second engine pull and all the work and maintenance I performed.


Unfortunately, the time has come to sell my 2001.5 Audi S4. This car has been my pride and joy and believe me if I didn't have to sell it, I would never get rid of it. Unfortunately, because of my new job, I just don't have the time to enjoy it anymore. I refused to put the 82 mile round trip to work per day on this car, so I bought an 06 honda civic to get me to work and has basically become my daily driver. On the weekends, I mainly ride my 06 Yamaha R6, which means the audi lives its life in a heated carpeted garage and rarely sees the light of day. In the last 5 months, it has seen about 130 miles of use. I just can't justify to myself to keep it, no matter how much I love the car.

Here are the stats on the car. Currently has 91,000 miles. Car was a lease return out of South Carolina for the first part of its life. The Audi dealer in Mendham, NJ selected this car to go to their lot for sale, because of its excellent condition. This is where I purchased it, in January of 2005 with 44,000 miles. Every stage of its life has been documented from then on, and I can tell you every single thing you'd ever want to know about this car. I took it from stock to a full Stage 3 where it sits today. All work performed by Mike Moore, Uli, or me and all parts purchased by me. Car has been essentially trouble free for a majority of its life. Most of the work done was due to upgrades and maintenance, not failures. Never tracked, never beat on, only daily driven.

Known problems that will be taken car of before sale:
Stock wheels need some refinishing. Will sand out imperfections and repaint\clear them.
Rear brakes need to be done. Already have the pads, just need to switch them out.
Plugs need to be changed, already have them and can do them asap.
Auto dim in the rear view has gone bad, I am shipping this out and having it replaced very shortly.

known problems:
Due to the greentop injectors, sometimes the idle is a little shaky and due to their spray pattern (this is widely known) they can throw occasional misfire codes. I always just clear them, this has never caused any other issues. I've tried to track down another source of the misfire but everything else is perfect. It really is just the injectors spray pattern.
center display, most pixels are shot as with most S4's.
Brakes have some deposits on the rotors from sitting in the garage so often. Pads need to be re-bedded to take car of some vibration when stopping. I will let the new owner handle that.

Only major issue: About two years ago the car was keyed on the drivers side. It was taken to a detailer to be buffed out. 80% of this scratch was able to be closed up, the rest was touched up and buffed, with some light wet sanding. I've just lived with it for the last two years. To be properly fixed, it would probably need some paint and blending.

**Asking $18,500 as is, negotiable.**

**Asking 16,000 negotiable as bare Stage 3 (Stage 3 minus, ask for parts list)**
