Audi Club Auction Watch: 07.27.2023

Words: Steve Johnson

Guten Tag Audi enthusiasts!  Searching through the internet’s multiple car auction sites for a specific model, while fun, can take up your valuable time.  So let us do some of the daily grind for you.  Auction Watch monitors auction sites for Audi models worthy of your bids.  Here in weekly Auction Watch, we post a short report with key data, a few pictures, and a link to the listing.  Our goal is to help you find the Audi you’re looking for in time to bid on it.

This week’s auction listings start with a darker shade of green than last week, called Highland Green, and it’s on another long roof.  It is the only short-fused auction, ending late this afternoon (27th).  The rest of this week’s listings have either two or four doors, which reminds me of a joke.  Why do chicken coupes only have two doors?  Because if they had four doors they’d be called a chicken sedan.  OK, no more Dad jokes.  Please browse through this week’s listings below.  As always, thanks for reading!

No Reserve.  A popular Audi color combo in this time frame, Light Silver metallic over an Onyx interior, and this one has Silk Nappa leather seats, Bose sound and a Jensen head unit with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability.  Its 2.7L turbocharged V6 runs a GIAC Stage 1 ECU tune and sends that enhanced power to a 6-speed manual.  The chassis rides on recently installed Bilstein B12 suspension kit.  The Carfax report is clean but the car is showing its age and the 2016 tires are due for replacement.

2022 Audi RS 3 (7,000 Miles)

Bring a Trailer – 08.02.2023 5:28 PM EDT

Essentially a new car here.  Per the window sticker the only items over base are the Mythos Black metallic paint, side assist, and all-weather floor mats.  But you still get the glorious 2.5L I5 (401HP/369 lb-ft) mated to a 7-speed S tronic and the trick new RS torque splitter diff.  The interior is black with Nappa leather seats.  The Carfax report is clean.
