2004 Audi S4 171k+ miles
Nogaro Blue exterior
Blue Alcantara/Black Leather interior
6-speed manual gearbox
4.2L V8 DOHC 340hp 305tq
Magnaflow 2.5" Stainless Catback w/integral x-pipe Retail $1050
Gutted main and pre-cats
JHM short shifter
Goodyear Eagle GT tires at 50%
Rotella T6 engine oil
Rubber and carpeted floormats
Bose sound system
Sunroof
Full superwhite LED interior conversion
Front heated seats
Cold a/c, hot heat
Drilled/slotted front and rear brake rotors
New battery last year

Cons:
Engine burns 2-3qts in between 3000mile oil change intervals
Some cosmetic rock chips (highway car)
CEL on due to gutted cats P0421 & P0321 catalytic warm-up efficiency (does not affect performance)

Absolutely the best car I've ever owned, smooth torquey engine, handles like a dream and especially very comfortable on long trips(North Carolina once, Ohio twice and a few trips up north). I cannot go anywhere without getting compliments on how clean it looks for 170k miles and the Nogaro Blue is an exclusive sought after color that pops. Reason for selling is I bought a house last November and need to free up some cash for a cheaper DD.

No trades, CASH only

Thank you!

Will sell for $7k to fellow MGer, need to sell by the end of the month to qualify for new Cruze Eco incentives!

This is typical b6 v8 behavior. I would suspect that is why the price is so reasonable. Id rock the crap out of this thing if i was in the market. A friend of mine has one with similar taste for oil, still runs strong.

Rebuilds can't fix cylinder walls, but you could ignore it and have fun anyways. BTDT!
im sure they could be replated ($$$), but i would just put some thicker oil in and give her the beats.

Eh, these are alusil blocks. Some people go on never-ending quests to find machine shops that properly bore/hone/etch and install oversized pistons to fix cylinder wear.

Sorry for the thread jack. Great car and great color combo. Always a pleasure to see another high-mile S4.

It does have the chain rattle at startup, I forgot to add that to the listing..oops! It has done it since I bought it 2.5 years ago and using the Rotella T6 oil made it quieter. It also has been using oil since I got it. I'm being completely honest with all this, it could use a little bit of love but I don't have the funds to keep it on the road: ie: i just bought a house a few months ago and now that is my baby.

My plans are to get the cruze and hopefully buy something later on involving a 20vt :)
