    Thinking of selling up, should I or shouldn't I?

    For the last couple of weeks I've been thinking of selling the A4 and getting more of a fun time car as I'm in a position to not really need a diesel anymore or have to have so much of a 'sensible' car.

    But my trouble is, the A4 is such a good car that I'm not sure I'll find something that in as good condition as my car is, or find a car that's literally going to need no work doing to it what so ever. I love how my car looks and the mrs loves the car too, but I have raw power and petrol running through my veins and I'm a massive petrol head that loves a car that I can get by the scruff of the neck and throw it about that also has bags of power. Dont get me wrong, the audi handles brilliantly as I've had KW V1 coilovers fitted, and it's also got an rs4 antiroll bar fitted, coupled with the quattro system it does the job very well, I just need more power! Even though my car has a 210 bhp remap.

    So, I've been looking at possibly getting an evo 6 or 7, or an e46 m3. Both evo's are in my terrotry but an e46 m3 I'd be looking at a cat d registered, which I don't mind as long as it's straight and has a certificate to warrant the work being done to a high standard and by a recognised repairer.

    Now I met up with a guy last night who has an evo 7 and was interested in doing a straight swap with my car, his car is currently advertised at Ł7750, the car was described as being in excellent condition etc when clearly when I viewed it, it wasn't. It had a scrape on the front splitter which resulted in hair line cracks in the paint, it had scrapes going up the drivers side bumper edge and onto the front wing, surface rust along the inside lip of the drivers rear arch, a small knock on the rear bumper, saggy and collapsed bolsters on the drivers seat recaro, and both rear tyres were near on bald! It amazes me how some people describe their cars as excellent or mint when they clearly aren't like that! On the other hand my car is exactly that. It is near on immaculate and I really mean that. I'm extremely fussy when it comes to my cars and my car is literally faultless in every way.

    And this is were my predicament lies. I want to advertise my car at Ł7450 which I think is more than a fair price considering it's condition, spec, history, and maintainence etc. But I know a lot of people may see that as over priced, but the price really reflects all of the above and I really think that anyone looking for a b6 a4 of this type will be very hard pushed to find a better one. It really is a one off, it's a 2.5 TDi quattro sport so your getting the economy of a diesel, yet it's a full S4 replica using all genuine Audi S4 parts including the solid alloy wing mirrors! It's a rare 6 speed manual too. Brand new 19x9.5" bbs LM replicas and brand new falken tyres cost me Ł1000 2 weeks ago! Cambelt and water pump changed, injector changed, clutch, discs, pads, all genuine parts all done at vag specialists, see it's had thousands spent on it!! Yet for some reason people don't seem to appreciate that, you get what you pay for in my eyes.

    What do you guys think?

    Here are a few pics I took at the weekend to show you what I mean -

























    Cheers,

    I've had an Evo 7 and can honestly say probably the best car i've owned (had a fair few over the years!). It was tuned and was insanely fast, and only sold it purely because I was offered strong money for it, plus I was worried I was going to lose my licence!! They are relatively cheap to run, i've had an M3 before (in fact 2 of them) and found them boring. Evo 6's are a little dated now.

    Sell me your wheels as well if you are selling up!!!

    I did think that when I was just replying to your pm Chris! That could be a plan, if anyone wants my car but with genuine s4 avus 18's on it to make it a complete s4 replica then we could do some sort of deal.

    Here is how my car looked when it had the s4 avus wheels on it if anyone is curious -



    Thanks for the advice on the cars I'm looking at, I have owned several performance cars myself in the past such as scooby sti type r, 2 e36 m3 evo's, pulsar gtir, supra, etc, but never owned an evo. I must admit, my old m3 evo's weren't very exciting to drive either. The scooby was tho!

    When I drove the evo last night it was very fast (had a few performance mods and was running 330 bhp) I did like the way it drove, and for what I want it for (track days etc) it would be immense! The steering was unbelievably quick and direct, the slightest move of the steering wheel and it was changing direction!

    I can understand what your saying, but if your like myself, I now can't be bothered with the hassle of modding a car, buying parts left right and centre, saving for the mods, waiting for them to be delivered, having hassle along the way etc, I just want to find a car that's had all the hard work done for me and to a high standard like my car is. I'd pay a good price for a car if it had all the right mods and was mint and very well maintained like mine.

    I haven't got the money for a bigger turbo (not that it's as simple as bolting a bigger turbo on anyway) or for an actual s4.

    I probably will regret it you know, it wouldn't be the first time I regret selling a car though! I know what you mean about something that Audi's have, I always sem to come back to them, this is my 4th Audi, I've owned a modded 1.8T sport 8L A3 which was running 254 bhp! and 2 8L S3's which were both mapped to 265 bhp, so no doubt I'll be back to another Audi one day!
