Well as some of you may know, I recently totaled my Santorin stage 3 and while still dealing with insurance, this thing popped up on cl from a local az member. I jumped on it almost immediately and Jeff (happy2b5) was nice enough to give me the week to get some cash together and I picked it up last Friday. All I can say is Jeff takes great care of his cars. The interior is awesome and the Exterior has some normal blemishes from being a 16 year old car but nothing some minor detailing wouldn't take care of.
Has a few minor issues, it occasionally throws a few codes under hard acceleration. They seem related to the battery or alternator. I bought it knowing it had a charging issue, it was idling and running around 12v on the dash and the battery light was on. We replaced the alternator with the one from my blue car and it fixed most everything aside from those few codes.. I'm going to change the battery today and see if the codes come back. Updates on that later.
Anyways, on to the fun stuff. Came loaded with some tasteful mods:
2001.5 s4 Avant Sport package - TIP - 134k miles
EPL Stage 1
Neuspeed rear sway bar
Neuspeed 3" cat back
Ocarbon silver carbon fiber trim
And it recently got all new oem front control arms, all normal leaks and timing belt taken care of recently. It is a TIP, but I will be keeping my car and doing the manual swap soon after insurance is done looking at my blue car. Rough plan for now is to dial in the handling (front sway, bigger rear sway, 17/18z), then get a motor ready to swap over all the stage 3 stuff. Stay tuned!
