This is an updated repost of the Audi S4 Avant manual shift car that I posted last week. Please read the entire description.

California car; this 2006 B7Audi S4 Avant was sold new from the Audi dealer in Concord, California and all three owners of this vehicle (including me) have lived in the San Francisco Bay Area.

This gutsy S4 Avant is finished in Dolphin Gray Metallic over Silver leather and equipped with a 4.2L 40-valve V8, 6-speed manual transmission, and Quattro all-wheel drive. It has nearly new Contiental rubber.

This accident-free S4 Avant has just 87,000 miles, an incredibly clean Carfax report and is offered with a folder full of service records.

This S4 Avant was purchased in February 2006 by the original owner, who added 4,500 miles over 6.5 years of ownership. The second owner purchased the car in July 2012 and kept it garaged in San Francisco for nearly 6 years. I purchased it from him and have used this S4 as my weekend car.

This exterior car is in excellent shape, but has a few minor dings including a small dent on the roofline from when the previous owner was attempting to put a bicycle on a roof rack and dropped a bicycle. I just had this S4 detailed and clay waxed. It looks sharp and drives great.

Now the bad news: Last Wednesday the check engine light came on and I noticed a drop in power over 4500RPM. I dropped the car off at my mechanic (Master’s European Automotive in Mill Valley.) The owner has owned a few S4 Avants and loves this car. They spent two days testing and testing the car to determine the issue including using a microscopic camera to go inside each cylinder. After the testing the only thing they found is that the #2 cylinder has some dampness in it. They believe there is an issue with the #2 cylinder that can only be determined by pulling the the cylinder head and timing chains off the motor. The estimate they gave me for the repair is in the $7500 range. The timing chain guides have not been serviced on this car and my thinking is that someone might want to do the entire repair at once.

I will happily connect a serious buyer with the mechanic who has worked on the car (and my other vehicles) since I’ve owned it.
