    Audi S4 Avant – 2001 Metallic Ebony Black – 115,000 Miles

    I regrettably have for sale my B5 S4 Avant, due to a change in circumstances meaning i cannot afford the fuel costs for commuting in it going forward.

    The car is in excellent condition, and has been well maintained under my ownership, I purchased the car in 2011 from Will1981 who was breaking it after his engine let go. I purchased the complete shell, minus the running gear and front bumper(already sold before I got there).
    At the time I had a 1997 Imola S4 Saloon, and myself and Aragorn (brother) proceeded to rebuild the Avant with the running gear and suspension from my saloon. The following parts were brought over from the saloon: Engine, Gearbox, Exhaust, Suspension, Brakes, Front arms(10k miles old), Front bumper.
    During the re-shell, we completely re-bushed the rear end, including diff bushing and solid subframe mounts. In addition 034 Street density Engine mounts and stiffened gearbox/ front diff mounts were fitted. Along with a new OEM RS4 clutch and full cambelt, waterpump, thermostat and tensioner kit.
    As a result, when back on the road, the car has had every single bush on it replaced, the Meyle HD Arm kit from the saloon had only seen 10k miles use.

    Since building the car, it had been running around with the Imola Yellow front bumper, much to Scottish members amusement when I turned up at an Ayrshire meet, and the Creiff Audi show 2012.

    October last year, I had the bumper modified to open up the lower grills, and fitted RS4 style mesh (the proper 10mm plastic stuff from Germany) at the same time, I arranged for the front end to be re-sprayed which included the front bumper, bonnet and wings, this was to colour code the bumper, but also to remove stone chips from the bonnet and wings.
    Once painted, the bodyshop gave the car a machine polish to rejuvenate the rest of the paint. With this done, the paint is in excellent condition, although there are one or two scratches on the doors, but nothing you wouldn’t expect to see on a 12 year old car.

    Price - £4250

    Bad points:
    During the rebuild, the Aircon was disconnected, its not been reconnected, and this would require a new dryer + Aircon specialist to fit/re-gas the system.

    The alternator requires a helping hand to get going, when started, the rev's need to be blipped up to around 2k to energise("kick start") the alternator, once done, it functions normally, this would never be an issue unless you started the car and left it idling.
