    2001 Audi S4 Avant, 6 speed manual, EPL Stage 3

    210,xxx on chassis, 90,xxx on engine
    Most major components/major maintenance items have 20k miles or less

    Clean title. Located in Amherst, NY

    See pictures and dyno sheet below. $9,500 OBO

    Instagram glamour shot.



    Up for sale is my Brilliant Black 2001 Audi S4 Avant with the 6 speed manual transmission. I originally purchased this car 6 years ago from an older gentleman in Kentucky, where the car had accumulated 160,000 or so of its chassis miles. I believe he was the original owner. The car now resides outside of Buffalo, NY and is driven daily.

    In short, nearly every part of this car has been modified with the best possible parts and with the objective of being a reliable and fun daily driver. For accomplishing the goal of respectable daily power without compromising mechanical reliability, all parts where chosen carefully and installed professionally. I have the receipts for nearly every dollar spent on this car under my ownership and every part purchased. The Stage 3 build and dyno tune were completed by the highly regarded European Performance Labs (EPL) in Connecticut. On the dyno, the car made 383awhp and 419awtq on pump gas, which makes for a very fun daily that can embarrass many other cars that you’d encounter on a daily basis. To speak to the car’s reliability, I recently commuted 180 miles every day for two weeks and my S4 never missed a beat. This is a car that can continue to be used as a reliable daily driver or kept as a performance minded car in its current state or built even further.
    The car’s modifications are as follows:

    Exterior:

    • OEM RS4 bumper w/ OEM RS4 grille and fogs
    • Resprayed in October 2011, Brilliant Black (the original factory color)
    • Rotiform NUE wheels 18x8.5 (cast), gunmetal
    • Aero front wiper arms/blades
    • OEM Audi Sport Aluminum mirrors

    Interior:

    • New OEM radio as of 2012 (still have original radio, some pixels were missing so I replaced it)
    • Tape deck aux cord
    • Audi Sport rubber floor mats
    • AWE vent-mount boost gauge

    Engine/Drivetrain:

    • BorgWarner K04 Turbos
    • OEM RS4 inlets
    • AWE Side-mount intercoolers
    • VF engineering diverter valves
    • 034 TB boot
    • SSAC 2.5” downpipes (catless)
    • AWE Twin 2 Exhaust
    • 034 2.0T coilplug conversion
    • 044 Bosch Fuel Pump
    • 034 street density engine/transmission mounts
    • ECS snub mount
    • JHM Stage 1 Clutch / B7 RS4 Pressure Plate
    • JHM lightweight flywheel
    • Cylinder heads completely rebuilt by EPL during Stage 3 build (20,000 miles ago)
    • 034 billet differential brace with density mounts

    Suspension:

    • ST coilovers
    • 034 lower control arms
    • OEM upper front control arms (October 2016)

    Maintenance:

    • Only Mobil 1 0w-40 in cold months
    • OEM equivalent full synthetic 5w-30 for warmer months
    • Oil changed religiously every 3500-5000 miles
    • Only pumped 93 octane gasoline
    • AC system freshly charged with new compressor by Audi dealer in 2013
    • All major maintenance items (timing belt, water pump, etc) done during Stage 3 build 20k miles ago

    Extras:
    • OEM wheels with 1 season used winter tires
    • Extra OEM radio

    As stated before, I have receipts to back up nearly everything on this car. This is an extremely well maintained vehicle for which I received many compliments. If you have any questions about the car or the function of the parts on it, please do not hesitate to ask. Here’s what the car has as outstanding issues:

    Paint:
    • The car had a fresh respray in October 2011, as mentioned before. Being slightly lowered and with the paint job being a bit thinner on the front bumper, it shows many rock chip spots. If I continued to own this car, I would have the front bumper resprayed along with the lower portion of hood surrounding the grille. The portion of the hood directly below the grill shows VERY minor surface rust. The hood simply needs to be sanded and sprayed. Also, a not-so-mechanically-minded AAA rep pulled off one of the washer caps as he thought it was a tow hook. I have the missing cap and when the next owner gets the car resprayed, it will be an easy fix. The rest of the paint looks good for a car of this vintage.

    ABS module:
    • This is the only item from the original owner that I never addressed. In my full use, 6 years of owning this car with quattro, this car doesn’t need the stability control/ABS to be a reliable and safe driver. I have never locked the brakes in this car and have had panic stops before. This has never been an issue for the 6 years of ownership through snow/rain/sun. However, as the module is shot, the light displays on the cluster. I never minded it, but the new owner could get a new module if desired.

    Typical B5 S4 stuff:
    • The pixels are missing on the driver’s display. It was a very low priority for me versus building the car and making it fun to drive, so it was always at the bottom of the list for things to do and simply never was addressed. If you know the B5 S4 market, you know that this issue affects virtually all cars. No effect on drivability and operation of the car whatsoever.
    • Three-inch rip on driver’s side bolster. The Driver’s seat is the only seat in the interior that truly shows its age. The rest of the interior looks very clean for a 16-year-old car.

    This car has treated me very well and never left me stranded because of a mechanical or electrical issue. Without a doubt, this is a very well-sorted B5 S4. The majority of the outstanding issues are cosmetic, and it looks and feels like a much newer car. The car pulls strongly and the boost is very steady. In my opinion, the exhaust provides the perfect amount of bark without being overwhelming from inside the cabin. My wife and I can easily carry on a conversation at highway cruising speeds as if we were in her B8 A4. EPL did an excellent job tuning this car. The power is as linear as a B5 S4 could be, and the around-town torque is phenomenal.

    I am asking $10,500 for this car OBO. I will entertain various offers, but as a general rule, I am not looking for a trade. I think this is a fair price for a well-sorted B5 S4 Avant with the majority of the major mechanical parts having only 20,000 miles of use. I will respond to all serious inquiries with 24 hours.

    Thanks,
    Peer


    See pictures below:

    Car in its winter setup. These wheels with snow tires are included as extras.


    A not-so-great night photo of the car; you can see the rock chips on the bumper a bit as well as the washer cap that is off the bumper currently. Again, I have the washer cap with no damage, it just needs to be mounted on when the bumper is resprayed. This car has a lot of tire on it right now (which perform incredibly well with no rub), please note below.






    This picture is a look at the surface rust. If you are standing more than 5 feet away from the car, it is difficult to see. Nevertheless, something to note.


    Rock chips on the thin paint. IMO front bumper would be great with a respray. No bumps, nicks, or any material lost - just paint.


    Less than 3 inch long tear on the driver's seat




    Some of the lighting is odd in these pics because of the parking garage. Seats are in mint shape.





    Stacks of receipts from the entirety of the Stage 3 build and my ownership in general


    Other washer cap to be put on when bumper is resprayed by new owner


    Summer rubber and wheels

    In for pictures of bad area's. Pretty clean car and nice mods but if you fix those problem area's you will get your asking price faster.

    Thanks for your interest.

    I am willing to be flexible on price to compensate for the less-than perfect aspects of the car. I am at a very busy point in my career/personal life and looking to pivot to a new truck (sadly!). I will try and get some pictures up before Saturday, but I don't get back home until it is dark. I'll see what I can do to expedite the process!

    All PMs have been replied. VIN available upon request.

    Pictures coming on Saturday - if there's anything in particular that needs to be seen earlier, I will do my best to take it in the morning before work.

    Thanks, all!

    Comprehensive pics added. Due to my work schedule I had to take these photos at night in the brightest place I could think of (the mall parking ramp). Pics are an accurate representation of the car. If anyone would like other areas photographed or has any questions, please feel free to ask! I can take daylight pictures this weekend! See first post for pics.

    I believe we met once in front of my old house on hartford/millersport hwy once! So sad to see you selling it, I've seen you in Amherst so many times going the other way. I have a local friend looking to get into B5's and preferably an avant. Don't know if he is ready right now but send me a text 716-640-7702 and maybe we can come look at this weekend? Thanks

    Yes, that's right! It is tough to say goodbye to this thing, certainly the end of an era for me. If I was in a different stage in my life where I could keep it as a 2nd car I absolutely would.

    I'll text you - car can be viewed any time this weekend!

    Much appreciated! It will most definitely provide years of great use for the next owner.

    ____________

    To the other interested parties, I've had some inquiries as to my willingness to leave out the summer wheels/tires or winter wheels/tires. If you just want one set, that's fine, and I will reduce the price accordingly to your request. I'll always take a good look at a serious offer.

    Thank you. Still trying to get it sold, I am willing to move on price a little bit.

    Excellent daily driver and should be sold to an enthusiast.

    Coolant leak was a loose clamp. Fixed!

    I removed it from the original post as it is no longer an issue. Will update on pending sale tonight.

    Thanks all.
