I didn't think I would ever create a build thread in this forum, but recent events have culminated in my opportunity to purchase an 01.5 S4. I did just that, and for a steal at $2200. Pictures are a must here, so lets not waste more time.

This is where the money is on the car. Absolutely mint interior. I will not be keeping that shift knob.

It needs a cam adjuster seal, valve cover gaskets, alternator and an o2 sensor. A complete respray is in order after this coming winter. Rust is present on both front fenders, rear trunk (swapping out with my 96 euro trunk), bottoms of the doors under the lower door trim, and one patch on the driver door, if I remember correctly.
I may have a line on a Revo Stage 2 tune with downpipes and JHM short shifter to add into the car. I was not expecting such a long throw from the 01E.
Super excited to own an S
