2010 6spd Sprint S4 for under $40000. Seems like a hell of a deal, maybe it's time for me to move up in the Audi ranks.[;)]

Seems way too good to be true. At least 10k too cheap.

Maybe they don't trust the Nigerian Prince that is trying to sell it..

Pure speculation here, but if it's a legit price, it's very likely to have been in an accident. Looking at the pic of the open-hood engine, something's not right. There's a gap between the backside of the chrome grill surround and the plastic weather-shield above it, indicative of a crash. Hard to tell, but the seam between the hood and the front left quarter-panel seems to taper slightly, narrowing as you get closer to the windshield, while the gap on the other side seems wider...

You'd have to inspect it in person and run the VIN, but I'd approach this with caution if I were thinking of picking it up.

Also an American car. F degrees on the dash, can't tell if it's in mph or not.

I don't think it's a scam, I've watched it move down from $45900 to the price it's at now over about the course of a month. Rebuilt or US Car or both may be a better answer.

I don't think I'm financially ready yet to make the jump to the B8 S4, maybe in 6 months to a year. I was just thinking this car may be worth a look for some of my fellow west coast AZ'ers.

For a U.S. car, it's about the right range... probably not clean though.. You can get a similarly equipped 2010 S4 for low $40k's in the states. Plus it doesn't have sport diff or ADS.

That car has been on the market for at least over half a year lol. Been seeing it posted for long time. Must be a reason nobody is buying. [drool]

+1. There has to be some sort of issue at play here.

It is a rebuilt ex-US car. hence why it's so cheap.

You do realize that having Fahrenheit as your unit of measurement for temperature doesn't mean that it's an American car, right? B6, B6 and B8 Audi's can be manually changed to F units by a push of two buttons.

I have my car in F and I'm in Vancouver, Canada...I prefer using it, personal preference.

I actually did contact them about that car when I was looking for mine. It is a U.S. car and even at that it just didn't "feel" right...can't really put my finger on it but I just didn't get a good feeling talking to the dude about it. Based on my experience, I'm not surprised it's been on the market awhile!

Cheers,
Mike

Brand new 2012s start at $54K (minus whatever discount you manage to negotiate). I don't think that a $14,000 depreciation over two years is too high. That's only 25%.
