    Hi.... Bought this last week ready for the summer (if we get one).
    I was all set to buy a silver 2.4 V6 but then my brother (an Audi service manager)informed me that the 2.4 is from the old model, and that the 3.0 (he knew i wouldn't be interested in a 4-cylinder)was the way to go - As it gives better performance, more power, more torque but is lighter and more fuel efficient than the the 2.4....
    So, after some searching i found this car. It had a full Audi and specialist service history and the Multitronic gearbox is in fine fettle. It has some nice options, with the only thing that i wish it was fitted with being Cruise control.
    The colour is Aquamarine, which seems to have a faint pearl gold hue to the blue in bright light. In the pictures it looks like some of the panels have bad colour match, but in the metal it all looks fine).....
    It's going to my local Audi dealer for a full once over and for their smart repairer to refurb the wheels and touch up a couple of little marks. And i am going to have all the badges removed (apart from the front and rear 'rings'
    If a set of 18" (B6) S4 Avus wheels present themselves for sale, i'll probably buy them and fit them to the car.

    Thanks Gen.Heinz - I might very well look into retro fitting the cruise.
