The time has come to sell my pride and joy...

One of a kind Audi S4 Avant in stunning Sprint Blue pearl effect, this is a truly great example of a B8 S4. In the two and a half years I have owned this car I have spent a little under £10k on upgrades in an effort to make this car the best it can be. The car benefits from full Audi service history prior to my ownership, since which, it has been maintained to a standard far exceeding that of a main dealer garage. This car is ready to go and wants for nothing. Being a slightly higher mileage example all of the common faults have already been fixed that tend to appear around the 70-90k mark.

Mileage currently 106,800.

This car comes with a great spec from factory totalling just over £6k in extras:

· B&O sound system.

· S4 embossed Super Sports seats, Silk Nappa leather (panda).

· Tech Pack high – HD Sat Nav, 3G MMI, adaptive cruise control, Audi music interface.

· Comfort pack – Full electric memory seats, Auto dim/folding/heated/memory mirrors (great feature, mirror and seat positions are stored – two tailored set-ups per key).

· Heated front seats.

· Drive select enabled for steering and engine characteristics.

· Maybe more but these are the main extra features…

Modifications since my ownership (all in the last 18 months):

· MRC Stage 2 remap including hardware and TCU remap
Game changer on this engine, cars running 475+ bhp. Performance is blistering and the S Tronic gearbox is a pleasure. Car will sprint to 60mph in under 4s but I still average 25mpg on most journeys (up to 30mpg on a long run).

· Audi RS5 front calipers (8 pot brembo) with brand new OEM discs and pads
Braided stainless HEL lines and full fluid change when fitted, covered a little over 2k miles since fitting. These brakes match the car perfectly.

· Great condition OEM S5 alloys fitted with brand new Michelin PS4s tyres all around
Fitted just after the brakes so still look new.

· RS4 style front grill.

· Full front-end including sills + rear bump & diffuser re-spray (work carried out by very reputable company)
These cars are prone to stone chips on the lower arches which causes a rust patch to start developing, this alongside stone chips on the bonnet and bumpers swayed me to bite the bullet. This work was carried out last August (cars covered less than 700 miles since).

All important maintenance (car has covered 10k miles in my ownership):

· Gearbox repair/new mechatronic unit fitted @ 97k miles in 2017.

· Huge gearbox service carried out last year (way beyond the S Tronic service Audi offer)
S Tronic fluid change, internal and external filter change, sump cleaned (new gasket and bolts), manual gearbox oil change (centre box) and rear diff oil change. Work carried out by specialist using OEM parts only.

· New rear discs and pads fitted at the same time as front brake upgrade.

· New OEM coil packs and spark plugs fitted before remap.

· Oil and filter changed every 6 months during my ownership regardless of use.

· Recent service carried out just before lockdown (start of March) – Oil and filter service plus new spark plugs

This car has been pampered in my ownership and unfortunately gets very little use these days. Its garage stored and only gets used for proper journeys, I avoid using it for short trips (<30 miles). Bodywork is in great condition as shown in the pictures. There are a few stone chips as shown but it’s generally mint and gets detailed regularly. A few of the alloys have minor chips/ages related marks but there is no unsightly kerbing at all. Huge stack of paperwork and receipts, both keys and original service book etc present. MOT till mid-December.

Car runs and drives superb. For the money there is little out there that does so much, so well and looks this good. If you’re serious about owning a B8 do not overlook this example, so much has been put into this car.

I have probably missed some stuff, any questions welcome. Open to serious offers.
