    Hey folks, trying to find a relatively low mileage allroad with the 2.7 and manual near(ish) to Reno NV or able to be shipped. Thereís several automatic ones lately but the only manual ones I have seen are being driven by Audi techs. Appreciate the help in advance!

Comparably speaking, 079 chain-driven V8's demand less than a comparable USP/Sline Avant of the same year and miles and will be a better purchase in the long run; everything you just mentioned would be easier (and cheaper) to install into an A4 than rebuilding an S4's engine.

    Some people also just prefer turbo surge to wailing out a V8. Just sort of depends on what you're looking for in a car. I love the V8, I had a B7 S4 Avant, but after driving it and the turbo B6/B7, I just preferred them. I only really love the V8 in the RS4 now, or the old belt driven V8's from the C5 S6, the S8, etc. The 1.8T and 2.0T's are phenominal if you build them up properly and can be comparably fast to an S4, just with a different feel.

    Maybe I'm not being clear about this... A USP is mechanically identical to a sport package A4. The appearance is different, but the performance is the same as a plain Jane A4 with sport package. I get the reason why people would possibly prefer a 1.8t over a V8, but I'm questioning why people think an Ultrasport or S-Line is worth a premium. They aren't collector's cars and probably never will be, and there is no performance bonus over an A4 equipped with sport package. People just call them rare and oooohhhh and ahhhhh over them and then owners try to sell them for crazy prices.

    Also, nobody was arguing about the cost of rebuilding a V8, because doing a proper rebuild of any engine is expesive. But if you're referring to the cost to do a timing chain service on your own, yes, that can be done cheaper than someone buying and swapping a V8, trans, suspension, brakes, and interior from an S4 into an A4. The S4 Recaro seats alone are usually at least $1k.

    Because a well cared for USP is still one of the gems audi created in that era. And they are rare. There doesn't have to be a lot of collectors to drive the market price. Just enough that supply doesn't meet demand.

    I get your point. I'll also mention that in 2007, I opted out of a black on black 2005 S4 6MT Avant with a rebuilt motor for a low mile 2004 USP 6MT Avant, mainly because, besides the uninspiring V8, there was nothing about the S4 that excited me any more than the USP, particularly in the HP category. And I knew the HP ceiling of the V8 was low compared to the 1.8T dollar for dollar.

    Believe it or not many people do actually care about the way their car looks, in addition to performance. "Mechanically identical" is irrelevant. That's like saying that some people shouldn't prefer red cars over black cars because mechanically they are the same.

    Agreed. My 2007 A4 Avant Ti quattro with 6-speed manual trans is relatively rare (1 of 7 according to AoA, not including the Ti package factor) and unless I'm at an Audi event, I'll not see another one just like it on the road. You know when you buy a car, and then you see a ton of that model out there on the road? That hasn't happened with the Yeti. B7 A4 Avants are not that common, and just about everyone I meet comments on how much they like it. I'm realistic, it's not a 1933 Duesenberg, but it suits my life, is functional, and I enjoy knowing that it's an uncommon combination of features. To me, that was worth a premium, and also to others as well. Sellors almost always ask for top dollar.... you'd be stupid not to do it... unless you like losing more money than you must. If that's you, reach out to any casino, they'll be happy to send you a free airplane ticket.

    Wagons with manual transmission are getting more and more rare to find in decent condition due to the age and mileage of the cars who had manual transmission. I personally don't mind the B6 Sport which is technically exactly the same like the USP without the bumpers and door blades. I also find for older car is more practical to have unpainted lower bumper and door parts that are easier to maintain over the years in the NE winters.

    No mater how rare the option combination is in any of the Audi models we discuss here - these are all mass production models and anything over 100K miles falls in the winter beater category.

    Can you clarify.. you are saying all cars discussed here are mass production cars and of over 100k miles are winter beaters? Is that supposed to be ironic.. am I missing that part?

    Not a ton of options in the V8 manual wagon world.. supply has to factor in at some point.
