During May 2015 I got a mail with the question: "Do you want to buy our 5000 S?" - "Well, of course a sedan, right?" - "Nope. Station wagon."
The daydream started and I answered "YES...I wanna have it!"
From my current point of view...I own nowadays two of four known 5000 S Avant in Germany. :)

Does anybody get the meaning of its licens plate? Z-SE8(astian) ;-)

1985 Audi 5000 S Avant (86 model - built in November 1985)

- 2.2l 85kW Automatic Transmission
- Grey leather interior - mint condition
- Cruise control
- A/C
- small rear Spoiler

Defects
- european taillights - solved - Exchanged with us-spec taillights
- function of turning signals/sidemarkers - solved
- automatic transmission - solved - brand new 0mls OEM Exchange gearbox
- A/C warm/cold - fixed - cooling will be fixed in 2016
- Roof Panel - TBD

Modifications
- Suspension Setup - TBD ;-) - currently first step of STW-customized suspension (midth of wheel to Fender - front 320mm/rear 270mm) - The Yacht is 3cm lower...
- Wheels - TBD ;-) currently OZ Crono Evolution 7x18 Offset42 215/35R18
- Exhaust System - Ray Simons 2.5" catback System - will be modified to OEM tailpipe
- US-spec lights/stuff - remains stock. 86 Model has exactly this setup.

Best regards from Germany!
Sebastian

Thank you!
I wanted to swap the 1.9TDI-engine of the yacht either into a 2.5TDI or 2.3l gasoline engine for having back pure 5cylinder sound. Then the second 5k showed up and the Money for the yacht´s engine swap was used for buying the second 5k and the brand new gearbox. Its worth and I still have the curious 1.9TDI in the yacht and enjoy the sizzling of the K24 through the very large K&N air filter! :)

There are some news regarding Earl Grey.
I re-arranged the tailpipe of the Ray Simons 2.5" exhaust system to original version because I didn´t like the chromed one and I prepared a small 100mm diameter 100 cspi catalyst for it. It has been cheap...so...cheap "extra power" ;-)

thanks. ;)
because its an original 5000 and therefore it needs its US-spec taillights.
suspension is a very strong modified and custom built one. took some hours of work :)
