FS: Audi S4

2000 Audi S4 Bi-Turbo - Quattro - 6 Speed Manual

Premium package: BOSE 8 speaker Symphony II, HomeLink System, Integrated phone system, Sunroof(like an Audi would come without one, right?), Dual 8-way adjustable seats w/ electronic lumbar, Auto tinting LCD Rear and side-view mirrors, HID Projector Headlights w/Adaptive Headlight System(headlights self-adjust as you drive)

Cold Weather Package: Heated seats, Heated door locks, Heated windshield washer units, Heated mirrors. Ski sack

Front, Side Front, and Rear Airbag Option

ALL major and minor maintenance has been done to the car. Timing belt, thermostat, water pump, accessory belt...etc etc... the works. Done by Audi techs at Wausau Imports.

I replaced ALL 8 aluminum control arms on the front of the car, ended up only being one that had a bad bushing, but I'm anal like that. Ball joints replaced, tie-rod ends replaced.

There was a design flaw with the oil line to the passenger side turbo charger from the factory. Audi had since fixed the issue. I brought the car to Audi to replace the line and they said they thought they heard a slightly abnormal noise coming from the pass. turbo so they replaced BOTH turbo's under warranty at 73,xxx miles. So, newer turbos.

New Clutch. Literally. About 250 miles on clutch.

I bought the car about 4 years ago with 4x,xxx miles on it. Now has 107,xxx miles on it.

I have taken great care with the car. I have fun with it but ever abuse it. I always let the car idle before turning it off even though Audi built in a system that keeps the oil and coolant flowing after the car's engine is shut off. Oil changed every 4500 miles with Mobile 1 SuperSyn 0W-40 and Bosch oil filter.

BONUS: I have (2) sets of tires AND wheels that come with the car. One set has Eagle F1 summer only tires mount, the other has Bridgestone Blizzak winter tires mounted. Blizzak's + Quattro = Tank.

There are a LOT more features to this car that I haven't mentioned but I assure you, it's loaded.

$14,500









I've had the car for about 4 years now and it's just time for a change. I'm sad to even post it for sale but it's time to look to the future of smaller, more Britishy 2-door sports cars with Toyota engines in the back.

I should add... I don't even know why I bother posting these sort of things on here. Let the good times roll and move this to the derailed section already.

Reminds me of my poor man's S4, the WRX. I just sold mine with 106,000 on it. I loved that car, what a beast in any condition, except below 3000 RPMs!

Good luck with the sale, that seems like a good deal since I sold my Suby with 106K on it for almost $10K.

Nice thing about this set up is that the turbos spool up to full boost at 1850 RPM's so you have peak torque at that 1850 RPM. (Pretty much full power as soon as the clutch is released.) Even without given her nuts, it makes me smile every time I take off.

Yeah. It has mini rock chips here and there like a used car would. Nothing excessive, though.

I know how to use lighting and angles to hide any of those little guys. I took those pictures for fun of photography. I send anyone a picture of anything at any angle they want. Just PM or e-mail me.

Damn, that thing's a beaut. Wish I could do it Rags...caught me about 1 year too early. I'll be pimpin' in my 91' Ford Exploder for another year, if she holds together.

It'll make a great winter car for someone with the AWD and Blizzaks, I figured it'd be a good selling point. Next year the car is just another year older. May as well get a little more money for it now and let someone else have a blast in the snow.

ONE thing I forgot to mention!

There are a total of 8 brake pads in the front of the car(huge brakes) and 2 of them have wires going to them to monitor the brake pad life. Well, the passenger side wire broke when the stupid owner was changing the wheels last fall. So the car has a notification on the dash LCD screen saying that the brake pads are low. They are near new still.

I was going to contact the brake pad manufacturer for a new pad but never got around to it. I intend on resolving this soon.

I just wanted to throw this out there incase someone wants to buy it quick.

Here's a picture of the front of the car so that you can see any little marks.

Warning, the picture is huge:

Just take the two wires going to the brake pad and either twist them together or seperate them, I can't remeber which. This is if you have the two wire sensor, if its just one wire then prevent it from touching ground(unplug it). It will make the light go out and unless your having problems with a sticking caliper the other pad wear indicator on the other side of the car will still let you know when the pads need to be changed.
