    Firstly I am listing this vehicle on behalf of my friend. If you have any questions at all or you just want to find out more please do not hesitate to give Ken a call for a long chat and he can go into as much detail as you want. His mobile number is 07595 911921 (no calls after 9pm please).


    After deliberating for a short while, I have decided to put my C5 Audi RS6 Saloon up for sale as I currently have too many toys and I need to get a deposit together for my first house.


    Before I go into the details of my Audi RS6, I am one of the directors and part own a VAT registered garage in Taunton, Somerset, which the RS6 is registered to. Anyone can come down to my garage and inspect my Audi RS6. I am happy to put it on a ramp and show you round it to put your mind at rest – I doubt there are many other people selling vehicles who could give that option for peace of mind before buying a used vehicle.


    I have owned the vehicle since September, since then a lot of parts have been upgraded or replaced during my ownership, making this one of the most sorted C5 RS6’s available in the UK. This includes engine and gearbox removal (see photos) to rebuild and hybrid the turbos, rebuild the automatic gearbox and torque converter (within the last 1,000 miles), replace the rear crank seal, discs and pads, cambelt and water pump, cam chain tensioners, coils, front lambdas and dump valves to name a few major items.


    Please see the bottom of the advert for the extensive list of work completed on this vehicle, including addressing a lot of common issues. I have over £16,000 worth of receipts for parts and labour relating to this vehicle.


    In the sections below I have listed the key details, condition of the vehicle, upgrades and modifications, service history, MOT history and all the parts and labour receipts.


    Key Details

    Audi C5 RS6 Saloon in light metallic blue/silver

    *Registered: 30/01/2003

    *Mileage: 98,957 miles but will rise as I used the vehicle daily.

    *MOT: Till 13/08/2019

    *Number of former keepers: 11

    *Vehicle located: VAT registered garage in Taunton, Somerset, please contact me for the exact location.

    *Service history: Full Audi Main Dealer and Audi Specialist until 2014 but as I am a mechanic and own my own garage all the servicing in my ownership has been done regularly by myself but with no receipts.

    *HPI clear but will show up as a plate change as I previously had my private plate on the car (G2 KJP).


    Condition of the car

    *For its age and mileage the RS6 is in really good condition, there are a few stone chips on the bonnet and front bumper but this is to be expected with a car that is 16 years old. The wheels are in great condition and the interior does not look like it has done almost 100,000 miles. Please see photos for the condition of the vehicle. This vehicle really needs to be seen to be appreciated.


    Additional Upgrades (either standard or not fitting the categories below)

    *Front and rear parking sensors

    *Factory rear door window blinds

    *Factory electric rear screen blind

    *Blue carbon weave on dash, centre console and door cards

    *Heated front and rear seats

    *Cruise control

    *Full Bose sound system

    *Recaro alcantara and leather seats

    *Dual climate control

    *Full electric front seats

    *Xtrons android head unit with torque app and dongle


    Engine Upgrades

    This vehicle was dyno’d when MRC completed the stage 2 engine and gearbox map in 2012 and ran 526ps (519bhp) and 843NM (622lb ft). Since then the car has had Turbo Dynamics hybrid turbos, 3” downpipes including decats and engine and gearbox oil coolers so with a map tweak it should be able to run around 550bhp. Although the car runs perfectly as it is, to get the most out of the upgrades you would need a map tweak.


    *MRC stage 2 remap

    *3” downpipe and decats

    *Turbo Dynamics hybrid turbos

    *Wagner Intercoolers

    *Miltek non resonated cat back exhaust with black exhaust tips

    *Front mounted custom engine oil cooler

    *Remote oil filter housing (makes changing oil filter so much easier)


    Drivetrain Upgrades

    *MRC stage 2 gearbox remap

    *Front mounted custom gearbox oil cooler


    Suspension and Wheel Upgrades

    *Bilstein PSS Coilovers

    *Hotchkiss anti roll bars

    *Genuine R8 wheels, full ‘square setup’ 10.5J all round (4 x R8 rear wheels so had to buy 2 sets of wheels to get this setup)


    Styling Upgrades

    *Rear LED tail lights

    *RS6 plus style black front lower centre grill and rear grill

    *Fog lights deleted and grills replaced

    *Black bonnet grill and Audi badge

    *Tinted double glazed windows


    Parts fitted or replaced by myself

    *Cambelt and water pump

    *Both cam chain tensioners (in the head)

    *Front discs and pads and rear pads

    *F125 switch on the side of the gearbox

    *8 new ignition coils

    *New dump valves

    *New front lambda sensors

    *Oil pressure switch

    *Rebuilt hybrid turbos by Turbo Dynamics

    *Automatic Gearbox and Torque Converter rebuilt by Chester Automatic Transmission Centre. New owner will have the remaining time left on the 1 year warranty.

    *Regularly serviced by myself, as the engine and gearbox have been removed during my ownership all the filters, plugs and serviceable items have been changed, along with a lot of the sensors.


    Summary

    This is an extremely well sorted C5 Audi RS6, probably one of the best available for sale in the UK with the modifications and the work which has been completed. As you can see from the £16,000 worth of receipts and listing of work completed this RS6 has never wanted for anything from myself or the previous owners and has been extremely well looked after by a mature enthusiast and is in great condition for its age and mileage.


    This RS6 really stands out visually especially with the R8 wheels which really fill the arches, the black RS6 plus style black grills, rear LED tail lights and the fog light deletes with black grills.


    This RS6 has a lot of the common problems fixed including coilovers (replacing the DRC suspension), automatic gearbox and torque converter rebuild, rear crank seal, rebuilt and hybrid turbos. It also has been tuned by one of the leading Audi tuners in the UK – MRC and has the supporting upgrades to go with the engine and gearbox remap; hybrid turbos, intercoolers, downpipes with decats, oil coolers and miltek exhaust and with a map tweak should be around 550bhp. This RS6 really needs to be viewed to be appreciated.


    Service History

    I have the original leather RS6 handbook, which contains a duplicate Audi service book as the one of the previous owners lost the original service book. The service book shows this vehicle has a full service history of Audi main dealer and Audi specialist, up until 2014.


    I have regularly serviced the RS6 during my ownership but due to owning my own garage there will not be receipts or stamps in the service book for this. As the engine and gearbox have been removed during my ownership all the filters, plugs and serviceable items have been changed, along with a lot of the sensors. Some of the services are also accompanied by receipts detailed further down this advert.

    Probably worth cutting out the repetitive stuff of the advert - ie mentioning you’ve spent £16k on 3 times in the advert and owning your own garage several times too
