The Avant is big news again in the Audi world as the RS 6 Avants have finally hit our shores and the A6 allroad is back. Interest from Audi enthusiasts hasn’t changed though as they seek out desirable Avants of yore and I think this specimen will grab someone’s attention. Obviously the color, Imola Yellow, is hard to miss but there are a couple of other points: it’s a beloved B5, it’s a 6sp manual, and it’s a slicktop…no sunroof. Here’s the ad:
We have specializing in the b5 generation S4 since year 2000. This rare Imola yellow avant presents itself in excellent condition, both mechanically and cosmetically. It is 1 of 80 Imola Avants brought in to the USA from Germany. It is 1 of 3 actual sunroof delete versions brought to the USA. All the services are up date and everything works perfectly to factory standards. The timing belt and water pump has less than 14k miles of use. In addition, Lots of valuable service work has just been completed: new battery, fresh spark plugs, fresh valve cover gaskets, tensioner seals and cam caps, fresh oil and filter, new air filter, new cabin air filter, fresh LCD information display center on cluster, one front and one rear wheel bearing and more!
The S4 is our speciality, we go through them top to bottom and spend countless hours to ensure quality. The transmission is super smooth, shifts perfectly and syncros are perfect as well. Turbo chargers are healthy and have also been inspected for shaft play, turbos do not smoke, no oil in intercooler system etc. Tires and brakes are in excellent working order as well. Exceptional condition, all seats and interior components are in great condition and do not show wear. Headliner is perfect and the vehicle is also non smoker. The primary vehicle highlight is the service history. Carfax displays consistent and correct maintenance performed on this S4 since it was new. When it comes to the Audi S4, consistent maintenance history means everything. Rising in Value, You Are Guaranteed to Win! We accept trades and ship nationwide.
Another point is the panda interior as you can see from the picture above. With 107,002 miles, it’s relatively low mileage but it has had 5 owners. Maybe you’ll be the 6th. At $19,975 though…I think the ‘manual transmission’ tax has kicked in. You can find this B5 Imola Yellow slicktop S4 Avant HERE.
