[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="59745"] words: Bill, photos: autotrader.ca Here's something I just learned today...apparently the B5 S4 Avant was not sold in Canada.

Apparently Japan. Here's the ad: Up for sale is this extremely tidy Audi S4 Avant Euro Spec unicorn - this car was imported fro...
