Find of the Day: 2004 Nogaro Blue S4 Avant 6sp

words: Bill, photos: dog2bert

There are a few things about Audi that I really love: the Avant and Nogaro Blue are just a couple. Combine them in one vehicle, add a manual transmission and the 4.2 V8 and voila…Heaven. That is what you see here: a 2004 Nogaro Blue S4 Avant with a 6 speed manual transmission. Here’s the ad:


THIS… is a 2004 Audi S4 Avant, finished in Nogaro Blue with a black and blue leather and Alcantara interior with Recaro seats.

  • This “B6” S4 Avant touts a 6-speed manual transmission.
  • This S4 Avant also includes a clean, accident-free AutoCheck vehicle history report.
  • This example includes a center console and a navigation system swapped from a later “B7” Audi S4.
  • The seller purchased this S4 four years ago, and has replaced a light module, the front window regulators, and the rear hatch actuator.
  • This S4 has been modified with a JHM Tune Fast Intentions cat-less exhaust and downpipes, along with an ECM tune.

Included in the ad are three videos. It only has 58,516 miles and photos included in the original ad shows the flaws. It’s on a site called cars&bids which is a new one for me so I’ll have to keep an eye on it if Heaven shows up on a regular basis. The bid is up to $15,000 and there are 4 days left as of this posting. Like I said earlier, this Audi hits all the sweet spots. I hope it goes to a great home.
