    Looks like a bargain price too, the clutch is hydraulic therefore no adjustment possible. Probably a G/B oil change would improve it no end

    yeah its a fair price can get it for £7.600 which aint bad for the performance, very clean example as well. just been getting insurence quotes come out at £1.800 zurich gunno try others. im 23 with 1 year no claims any other companys i should try? love the bimma m5 2 fast for me must be thirsty with that 4.0 lump.

    I'm biassed, but an S4 in Nogaro Blue is quite a car

    I appreciate that saloons sell for a little less than Avants, but that does seem very very cheap What's the mileage etc? Cambelted?

    i have a feeling its one of 2 things.
    Did the gear stick feel central in 3rd and 4th, if not, it could just need adjusting.

    Or it could be the 1st and 2nd synchro mesh in the gearbox, which is not good
