    We already have a big diesel estate auto in the family, so thinking manual

    Manual to give me a bit more involvement and fun, but I guess at this point may need to budge for clutch change?

    Auto would give a relaxed and quick a to b
    No worries on clutch

    Any thoughts welcomed

    Always makes me wonder whether the seller actually let the car go when bids hit that price. Know this is not want to hear and I'm not being helpful by any means to your situation but in terms of purchase price the run up to summer and during is when they'll be going for crazy money pricing them way out of proportion (although this is of course for obvious reasons and your probably looking for some summer fun yourself which the car would undoubtedly bring).

    Tiny bit over your budget but this seems a nice example and you could always knock a couple quid off the price, going below five thousand for a decent example could be tricky.

    Thanks
    That blue one is the same as eBay link

    I called him, got the details and ready to make a viewing, but he decided to go with his part ex offer with a BMW
    Having spoken to him he didn't own for long, but needed something more economical
    Shame as like that colour and looked in good condition and would have been near budget

    Search continues although with my average rate of finding a car is about 5 months which brings it up to summer time and the above comment on inflating prices, I'm not sure I'll end up with one this year

    Still have auto vs manual debate in my head, but if the price was right, spec I could be tempted with auto

    I had email conversation with a private seller who sold his 2004 Tip to trade for apparently £6k, just noticed its being sold for £8995!

    I'm never going to find a manual decent one in budge at this rate

    Another month goes by and search still continues

    Decided not to go manual
    Prefer colour combo, grey with red leather, tip, heated seats, bose, nav like this
    S4 Cabriolet 4.2 V8 Auto - 2 Owners Cost £47500 New! Sat Nav, Xenons etc. | eBay

    Otherwise a sprint blue

    Saw this grey and silver no nav, also IMO had wonky aftermarket rear parking sensors
    Audi S4 converible 2004 Tiptronic | eBay
    I offered c.£6k but the owner wanted close to £6.5k
    If it was in my preferred spec then maybe, but holding out

    Opinions on this
    Audi S4 converible 2004 Tiptronic | eBay

    My main negatives
    - rear aftermarket parking sensors not straight/ aligned
    - rear exhaust tail pipes don't look shiney (any tell tell signs if its not just dirty)
    - no nav
    - would prefer red leather over silver
    - maybe would prefer oem avus III alloys but these are apparently genuine with a same spare in boot

    Plus
    - good condition (from pics)
    - decent mileage
    - both keys
    - full service history

    Main negative for me would be that it's already sold.
