    Hi, I am still looking for a Nogaro Blue Audi S4..

    Preferebly standard but maybe with the Remap..
    If anyone knows of one being sold, I have seen some on eBay and Pistonheads, but i hated the wheels, lol!

    So please PM me with details of where else to look, or get in touch! Money Waiting!

    Thanks
    Ben

    Your most probably looking in the best places....You could try the Trader, or better still buy one of the ones you've seen and change the wheels ;)

    Ahh, thanks for that link. I've seen it on pistonheads, but them wheels! not to my taste.. plus i know the Blue interior is prefered n rare, but i hate the blue door cards..

    I could change the wheels, but i'd need the car straight away and i havent got alot of spare cash to start going on wheels.. I'll see if he'll accept a little less lol

    Thanks!

    There's a silver B5 S4 knocking around Grimsby/Cleethorpes. I've been tempted to stop and ask him if he wants to part with it... it's an older gentleman driving it...

    New wheels on the A4 tonight. Just off to Bush Tyres to pick them up!

    come on just get the nogaro one swap wheels only , maybe even a straight swap. and door cards theres a few knocking around wont cost much and easy to swap .
    If you see a good straight car dont be bothered by little cosmetic details .

    And he has not replied to my email...

    Anyone ever seen it before?

    Are we on about the red one with the dark RS6's on it...? Or the cheaper one with higher mileage and the standard rims on?

    Well!

    Didn't end up seeing that red one.. but i went on to see a v.nice nogaro avant, with tv's in the back, dark rs6 wheels.. super drool worthy, even had a drive, every option too!

    Sold it this morning, just as i'd got the money together, and i left him a deposit! quite miffed to be honest..

    So i'm still on the lookout, but this time i have cash waiting, woop!

    He sold it even though you gave him a deposit...? That's bang out of order. I assume you got it all back...?

    i saw the one with tvs on autotrader, i think it claimed 350bhp "rs4 performance etc" which seemed a bit optimistic

    i was up in northwich with mine over the weekend... just looked on google maps and thats still blooming miles away

    Nogaro avant, remap, miltek, black leather interior, dark rs4 alloys optional lol, about £6k?

    Seen some saloons with sameish spec go for about £5k / £5.5k so is £6k ok?
    That one in Ramsbottom was very nice, full audi history just had its cambelt done less than 3000 miles ago and done 120k total, and went for £6.5k

    typical remapped s4 plots are like remapped 20vt plots. gay to the core.

    they spike to 380lbft and then tail off immediately like a diesel. it would feel like big 20vt, disappointing from my experience.

    have you seen a standard s4 plot? 290lbft, lazer etched flat torque "curve" to 5000rpm and then drops

    with mine, it goes to 350lbft and then holds it to just past 5200rpm, so like the standard car but bigger (60lbft everywhere bigger) and then tails off because ko3s are tiny.

    Found one.. But its a saloon.. Totally standard apart from a remap and diverter valves.
    Couple of things wrong, CD changer wont eject but i'm sure i can do that and it needs new front discs, which i have..

    Just done 100400miles, new turbos by audi at 100k! (With reciepts) FASH. £5k

    Collect in a couple of weeks. Will post pics as soon as!
    Actually cant wait to spend some money on it haha.
    Collecting with my friend who drives a Fiat 20v Turbo Coupe, who says he'll leave me for dead.. we'll see.

    Geez Geeman, your on the ball!

    http://pistonheads.com/sales/1503416.htm

    Nogaro Blue, Black Leather Interior, Like i said totally standard apart from Remap/Diveverter valves..
    Just on the lookout for a Centre Armrest and possibly the PhatBox system.. it does work in these doesn't it?
    Then its B7 RS4 wheels, miltek, remap, turbos, fmic, shortshift, thicker rollbars, coilovers, some sticky tread and off to the ring in August! (I'm not sure how much of this i am going to be able to complete before the Ring!)

    Looks really tidy! A good price for a facelift S4. Most of the ones around that price are all pre-facelift models!

    And it looks like it was originally from Hull too (AG plate)

    You'll have to come and take me out for a spin in it when you get it...!
