Find of the Day: 2005 Nogaro Blue Audi S4 Avant

words: Bill, photos: Bring A Trailer

This Audi is a triple play: Nogaro Blue, Avant, 6speed manual. That’s all that really needs to be said. I might as well just put photos here because that’s all I’m going to be paying attention to from now on. But here’s the ad anyway:

This 2005 Audi S4 Avant was first registered in Southern California and was acquired by the seller in 2018. The car is said to be one of six manual transmission-equipped examples produced in Nogaro Blue over a black and blue interior for the US in 2005. Power is by a replacement 4.2-liter V8 paired with a six-speed manual transmission and Quattro all-wheel drive. Equipment includes xenon headlamps, cruise control, Recaro seating, heated front seats, and dual-zone climate control. This B6 S4 Avant shows 159k miles and is now offered with service records, a Carfax report, and a clean Washington title.

The car is finished in Nogaro Blue and is equipped with a power-operated sunroof and tinted windows. The Carfax report indicates damage in April 2014 to the front, rear, roof, and passenger side of the car. The seller notes rock chips and dings are present on the hood, front bumper and doors, and scratches are shown on the rear bumper. The driver-side tail light is said to retain moisture.

The factory 18″ wheels wear 235/40 Continental ExtremeContact Sport tires. Curb rash is present on the wheels as shown in the gallery.

The Recaro seats feature black leather bolsters and blue Alcantara inserts. Equipment includes brushed aluminum trim, cruise control, power-adjustable heated front seats with memory, and dual-zone automatic climate control.

Instrumentation includes a 170-mph speedometer, an 8k-rpm tachometer, and a digital information screen. The digital odometer indicates 159k miles, approximately 12k of which were added by the seller.

The 4.2-liter DOHC V8 was replaced by Beverly Hills Audi in 2009 at 41,500 miles. An engine-out service was performed in 2015 and included replacing the left cam adjuster, and a crank position sensor was replaced in 2017.

Power is delivered to all four wheels through a six-speed manual transmission and a Quattro all-wheel-drive system.

The April 2020 Carfax report shows the aforementioned damage in April 2014, and displays registration history in California and Washington through its most recent entry in November 2019.

As you can see, pretty clean yet there is a damage claim on the CarFax back in April 2014 that shows damage to the front, rear, right side, and roof (?). The engine was replaced at 41,900 back in 2009. The seller also sent in 2 videos of the Avant (below). Right now, the bid sits at $5,750 and ends in 3 days. Is this worth it to you? If so, you can find this B6 Nogaro Blue S4 Avant HERE.
