Chocolate? It's doo-doo, baby!
I've owned this car for nearly 10 years, in which time I’ve spared no expense in maintaining and improving it to run approximately 400 BHP. It had done 97k mostly motorway miles when I bought it, so I’ve done less than 5k miles per year since then. It’s been looked after by a local independent specialist and serviced every year using Fuchs Pro S 5w-40 oil.
The timing service (including uprated RS4 guides) was done at 135k miles along with a new clutch and flywheel. If you look at a car without the timing service having been done, add at least £4000 to the cost of the purchase as it is mandatory for every B6/B7 S4 at around 100k miles.
There's curbing on most of the wheels, a couple of small scratches and some stone chips in the usual places. I have just had one of the rear doors and quarter panels sprayed to sort out a couple of larger scratches.
