I'll start this ad by stating that this 4.2 isn't your average. If you are looking for a "fixer upper" or budget a6 4.2 you can click the back button right now. I bought this car from a close friend who meticulously maintained it. In the 10,000 miles he owned it he spent thousands of dollars bringing the car up to par. In this process he replaced the following:

- Complete timing belt service with water pump and thermostat
- Serpentine belt and tensioner
- Fan clutch and blade
- All cooling hoses including the small flange hoses on the back of the head
- Temperature sensor
- Air and Cabin filters
- Genuine ignition coils and plugs (yes all 8 coils)
- Genuine oil cooler and seals
- Genuine Engine mounts
- Front axles
- All eight front arms
- Front links
- Transmission service (original audi trans fluid, filter, and gasket)
- VDO Fuel pump, gasket, OE filter, and relay
- Regular Lubromoly synthetic oil changes
- Front and rear zimmerman rotors with Aekebono pads
- 15mm Front spacers and 20mm Rear spacers
- Infinity front door speakers
- 6k lows and fogs
- LED plate bulbs
- Driveside anti-dazzle mirror glass

I bought the car from him with the intention of giving it to my mom but she wants something smaller. I purchased it a few months ago and have since performed the following:
- Full respray in the original Amulet red color which included removal of all trim pieces, moldings, and lights.
- Complete transmission rebuild
- Valve cover gaskets
- New PCV valve
- New tie rods
- New headlight switch
- Two front oxygen sensors
- Brand new Continental DWS tires (road forced and laser aligned)

- Amulet red on black (have only been able to find one other 4.2 in this combo)
- Sport package
- Winter package
- Fold in mirrors
- Fold down rear seats
- Bose audio
- Cluster nav and onstar (cluster pixels do need repair)

Mileage: 152,xxx
Price: $9.995 (for a freshly painted 4.2, in a rare color, with virtually ALL of its gremlins professionally addressed)

The price reflects about half of the dollar amount of repairs this car has received in the last two years without even touching on the actual value of the car. If you are familiar with 4.2s you know the market but if you aren't the 2002 to 2004s vary in price starting as low as 6k and ending as high as $15k. I listed this car at $10 and expect to get close to that. I've got nothing to hide and can answer all questions about the car.
