AZ Euros Talks About Paul Walker’s B5 S4

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="40410"] words: Bill, photos: Barrett-Jackson, The Smoking Tire Way back in October, we featured Paul Walker's B5 S4 as a Find of the (Future) Day. In fact, we wrote three blog posts about his car as Paul was an icon in the automotive world (Find of the Future Day is Here: Paul Walker’s 2000 Audi S4 and AZ Euros Buys Paul Walker’s B5 S4). And this one makes number 4...almost as many as there are Fast & Furious movies. We rarely, if ev...

Find of the Day: 2001 Audi RS 4 Avant

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="43568"] words: Bill, photos: Josh Decker Find of the Day? Maybe Find of the Year as in you will have to wait until 2026 to import one from Europe (if you live in the States; Canadians have been able to import these since 2016). There are a few B5 RS 4 Avants in the States but none are for sale now and arguably, none in this condition. Also, I happen to know the owner and you may too. Josh Decker founded  QuattroWorld, Achtuning, and is now the...

AZ Euros Buys Paul Walker’s B5 S4

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="41960"] words: Bill, photos: AZ Euros, Barrett-Jackson When we found out that Paul Walker's 2000 Audi B5 S4 was going to auction, we figured it would disappear into someone's private collection and we would never know who bought it or if we'd ever see it again. Well, we know who bought it thanks to Facebook: AZ Euros. They proudly posted that they won the auction and at a good price considering ($27,000). Congratulations to them and here's hoping...

Find of the Day: New German Performance 2001 Audi B5 S4 Racecar

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="41730"] words: Bill, photos: New German Performance If you've ever been at a track day with the Audi Club Potomac-Chesapeake or Waterfest or H2Oi or etc etc, you've probably seen the big trailer of New German Performance (NGP)...it's kind of hard to miss. And with that trailer providing track-side support for the participants, you've probably seen a silver B5 S4 with blue/grey/black vertical strips snarling its way around the track and wished it ...

Find of the Future Day is Here: Paul Walker’s 2000 Audi S4

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="40410"] words: Bill, photos: Barrett-Jackson, The Smoking Tire YouTube Channel A couple of months ago, we featured Paul Walker's 2000 Audi S4 as a Find of the Future Day. It was a FOTFD because we knew it was going up for auction but just didn't know when. Now we do. There is a collection of Paul's cars at the Barrett-Jackson's Scottsdale auction that runs from January 11-19, 2020. Here's the list of the collection: 1963 Chevrolet Nova Wagon 196...

Find of the Day: 2001 724HP Audi S4

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="39189"] words: Bill, photos: New German Performance and Classic Auto Mall Audi B5 S4, whether sedan or Avant, have acquired almost legendary status amongst Audi fans and this one is no exception. Finding a well sorted out example that is not ragged or rusty is getting harder these days so when we saw our friends over at New German Performance (NGP) post this one, we took a closer look. It also didn't hurt that the caption for their picture was th...

Find of the Day: 2001 Audi A4…TDI

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="36443"] words: Bill, photos: eBay.com Yes we are featuring the second B5 in a row on our Find of the Day but the first was Paul Walker's S4 and this...this is another special one. While it may look like another B5 A4 quattro from the outside, it's got a TDI heart. The States didn't get a B5 TDI unless you're talking about the Volkswagen B5 (and B5.5) Passat and even then we didn't get an all-wheel drive version. [gallery link="none" co...

Star of The Fast and The Furious franchise, it's appropriate that he was a major gearhead. Sadly passing in 2013, he left behind a legacy that still rings loudly today. And now you can own a piece of his legacy. [gallery columns="1" size="full" ids="36160"] Pictured above is his 2000 Audi S4. It is part of a 21-vehicle coll...

words: Bill, photos: Bring A Trailer The latest issue of quattro Magazine (Q2_2019) is on its way to Audi Club members. In it, they'll find an article about a B5 RS 4 Avant entitled Rennsport + Avant = Perfection. I proofread quattro which means reading every issue cover to cover...several several times. So imagine my surprise when this Avant showed up on Bring A Trailer. I recognized it even before I knew what I was looking at. I won't spoil the article before you have a chance ...

Video: B9 RS 4 Meets Its Grandaddy…the B5 RS 4

words: Bill Cho, video and photos: Auditography Them lucky sons o' guns. Auditography scores again with this very unique pairing. He took a new RS 4 Avant and had a photoshoot with his very own B5 RS 4. Since he was only borrowing the new RS 4, he was told to be gentle with it so no RS 4 vs RS 4 races. Auditography more than made up for it with his always beautiful photography of the meeting of the giants. Watch the video below and don't forget to visit his Facebook page fo...

Find of the Day: 2001 B5 S4/RS 4 Widebody Sedan

words: Bill Cho, photos: Craigslist and Andrew Armistead (owner extraordinaire) Ok before y'all grab the torches and pitchforks, I know there wasn't a B5 RS 4 sedan but hold on until you've read the details on this car. I ran across this Craigslist ad and it intrigued me not only because it was an RS 4 clone but it had to have been the most detailed ad I've ever read. The list of what was done goes on and on...and on. I sent an email to a friend who sent an email to a friend and befor...
