Hello everyone. Could use your help on what I should ask for my car. So I have had my Audi 5000CS Quattro for about 7 or 8 years now. Body is in really good condition. Interior is pretty good too. Really enjoyed this car. ( I think it's around 160k miles ) It also has the forged Fuchs wheels.
This last winter the clutch felt like it got air in it. I was able to bleed it and it was fine for about 3 months. Then suddenly the clutch wouldn't hold pressure anymore. I can bleed it , but with in about 10 pedal pumps or so it loses pressure. I purchased a master and slave cylinder for the clutch , but after looking at where it is I am concerned I will end up causing more problems and not be able to fix it. I also have a couple injuries I am trying not to aggravate ( rotator cuff and hip injury)
So there are a couple euro car specialists not too far away I was going to trailer it down to and they are so backed up and also I think a little scared of the car as they are not familiar with them and have declined to work on it. So it has just been sitting for the last 3 months or so. I do start it up and I can drive it around the block ( after bleeding it) just so it isn't sitting.
I really don't want to get rid of the car but lately I've been thinking maybe I should get rid of it before it sits any longer.
I will try to get some more pics soon, but wanted to get a feeler of what I should as for.

There are a few other issues. There is a slow coolant leak I believe at the waterpump. It will leave a few drips on the ground after driving it.
The part ignition failed a couple years ago and has a push button start. You still use the key and turn the ignition on, but instead of turning it further to the right there is a push button start. The heated seats no longer work. They used to work fine and after my wife used the passenger side one day they both quit. ( possibly an easy fix) one of the rear windows don't respond from the driver side controls.
Overall its a good car besides these issues and I drove it probably 20k miles over the last few years.

Car looks pretty clean from the pics you posted. Unfortunately, the lack of driveability REALLY hurts the value. With not being able to get in a drive away, a lot of perspective buyers will shy away.

If this was an avant, I would be very interested. As it sits though, your probably only looking around possibly $2500. That just my opinion, but I tend to be on the lower end most of the time.
