    Welcome!
    With regret the time has come to put this beautiful car up for sale which I've owned for 5 months with the sole intention to take it around Europe on an extended trip. From cold starts in the 5c UK morning to high speed cruising through France in the 38c summer heat, it never let us down even once. An absolute testament to Audi, the previous owners and the professionals who have worked on this car through the years. Absolutely no expense spared, all modifications professionally done with receipts totalling near £20,000! This is for me the ultimate touring car, with room to spare holding 4 x 32kg suitcases and performance to make you feel like you're in a leather clad rocket that can still manage 32mpg!!

    Car was serviced before purchase and twice over my ownership (Millers CFS 5w40 NT+) with plenty of brakes and tyre tread remaining. During my 10,000 miles I have done little but clean, service and fuel the car. One water-to-air intercooler was replaced to fix a slow leak which has not returned since. I went above and beyond in my servicing by also changing the supercharger oil per general consensus of modified performance enthusiasts along with the charger belt and a magnetic oil sump plug. Car recently treated to full wax, machine polish & paint protection at considerable cost, so completely free of swirl marks! Comes with 3 keys & leather Audi keyring. Owned by 5 previous car enthusiasts, car has a full history (vast majority Audi), original service manuals with the Audi folder, including the factory vehicle inspection form, tonnes more paperwork, this is a later 2010 model and has had all common issues (water pump, gearbox) already remedied by Audi obviously with receipts to prove.

    Visually:
    The deep sea blue pearlescent paint is simply magnificent, sparkles and changes colour depending on viewing angle and lighting.
    The car has subtle visual modifications setting it above and beyond all other Audis new and old, aiming for a stealthy low key yet aggressive look. Surrounding the bottom of the car are custom silver painted sideskirts, splitter and diffuser complete with a custom black & red Audi Sport colour theme, with the front and rear RS bumpers and black Milltek exhaust tips bringing together an excellent RS style package that turns heads everywhere. All badges except the Audi emblem have been removed, window trim chrome has been blacked-out and rear windows tinted. To finish off, the car has been lowered slightly, sitting on 20" genuine Audi RS6 "peeler" alloy wheels showcasing drilled & grooved 2-piece performance brake discs. All of this, I can attest, is to zero compromise on practicality, this beauty truly flaunts the timeless saloon car figure and propels styling, performance, handling and safety to the next level, whilst maintaining Audi comfort and luxury.

    Interior & Specifications:
    Top spec dual-clutch 4-wheel drive QUATTRO model with tonnes of features all of which are working. Lots of modern features included; ABS, dual climate control, sat nav, auto xenon headlights & auto rain wipers with adjustable sensitivity. Add to that traction & stability control, combined with the excellent semi-automatic 7 speed S-Tronic DSG gearbox that allows manual override via both flappy paddles and gear-stick, you also have Audi drive (mode) select, the coveted Audi rear sports differential, adaptive suspension dampening and adjustable dynamic steering feedback. Inside is in PRISTINE condition; 2-tone black and beige leather sport seats - heated, carbon atlas interior, B&O audio system with 11 speakers including sub-woofer, metal foot pedals, lighting pack (foot well, doors & glove box), cruise control, Sat Nav, DAB radio, Bluetooth & AUX adapters for MMI with DVD player plus in-built + SD card storage. Aircon and dual climate control with rear passenger control, HID bi-xenon auto-on and auto-levelling headlights, electric seat adjustment for both seats, leather multi-function steering wheel, premium protective floor mats in all foot wells, electric adjusted & heated wing mirrors, auto dimming rear-view mirror, front & rear parking sensors with centre console distance display, heat insulating glass, spare tyre & toolkit in the rear.

    Modifications list:
    • Stage 2 Custom dyno tune by renowned MRC Tuning in Banbury, various dynos over the years showing 471-491BHP & 580-588Nm Torque
    • DSG (gearbox) remap providing higher torque & rev limit, with launch control (only used half a dozen times)
    • Enlarged supercharger crank pulley & high-grip belt to increase boost
    • Full custom 2.75" resonated exhaust system by Milltek costing around £3.5k (no drone!)
    • Intake kit with larger intake hose, K&N filter, and modified airbox for extra cold air flow
    • ECS Tuning wheel spacers & 2-piece slotted & drilled brake rotors with EBC Redstuff pads

    Negatives:
    This is a daily driven car and certainly no garage queen which makes it's condition even more impressive. To note; few minor stone marks on front, also marks on rear bumper, small 1p crack in windshield out of driver's main view (MOT pass), shallow scuffing on edge of alloys, 1 of 2 front 12v sockets is not working.

    Car had some invisible coolant loss, turns out an issue with PCV oil seperator which is pretty common. Replaced PCV along with various hoses + seals, as supercharger and manifold was off also had a new water pump fitted + thermostat plus a new temperature sensor as preventative maintenance. Including another oil change (and coolant)! :blackrs4:

    Treat my car better than myself, sometimes! lol!
