2008 S4 Avant 6MT (with jhm headers and more) (http://www.panjo.com/buy/2008-s4-avant-6mt-with-jhm-headers-and-more-217790)

JHM intermediate timing chain kit installed by goodspeed in AZ in mid 2013 @ roughly 82k miles, at which time various other normally hard to get to maintenance items were preemptively addressed (starter, coolant sensor, crank sensor, some hoses, valve cover gaskets, intake manifold gaskets, and more).

How rare is this particular avant? According to Audi of America, in 2008:

141 S4 4.2 AVANT 4-DR 6-SPD QUATTRO were sold in the US
23 S4 4.2 AVANT 4-DR 6-SPD QUATTRO with PHANTOM BLACK PEARL EFFECT exteriors were sold in the US
21 S4 4.2 AVANT 4-DR 6-SPD QUATTRO with PHANTOM BLACK PEARL EFFECT exteriors and BLACK interiors were sold in the US

Sound:
Not much sounds better than this V8 with JHM long tube header, stasis cat back and the lightened flywheel, it just sounds right. In my opinion, it's an incredible balance of refined and primal.

History:
I purchased the car in CA at 81k miles. Carfax says that it was originally purchased in Rhode Island on 9/29/2007, but was then registered in CA less than a year later. It says that I'm the 3rd owner and that it has a clean history. Since purchasing, I have pampered her. Never used for short trips, very rarely has she seen trips shorter than 20 minutes each way. The vast majority of the miles that I've put on have been in the form of very pleasant cross country road trips. I always avoid high engine load until 5-10 minutes after the coolant gauge stabilizes. Always garaged and well maintained. As far as I can tell, it's never seen winter or salt.

Like most if not all of her V8 S4 sisters, she burns some oil. I've found that it burns much less oil when it has a new PCV, but that seems to only help for a couple thousand miles, I've only recently added the catch can (because the PCV system seems flawed and easily soiled) 1 tank of gas ago. In that tank there was no noticeable oil missing. In the time that I've had her, I've changed the oil every 4-5k miles and after reading how all of these seem to prefer different oils, I have tried several oils (Lubro-Moly, Motul X-cess, Motul specific). This little princes appears to strongly prefer Motul 300V

Motivation:
We moved back to Chicago and 4 cars is officially an annoying number of cars to have in the city. I still owe money on this one and with the way that I pamper this car it just doesn't make sense to keep here as I'll have to pay to have it in climate controlled storage every winter and I rarely drive it here through the war zone looking Chicago streets. I however really enjoy being in this car, it's an incredibly nice place to be, and my better half is very emotionally attached to this car as well. I know that I've got way more invested in this car than I can never dream of getting back (in the 50K neighborhood) and I am very aware that I'm asking above kbb value but I think this is a very fair price, to the right buyer considering the rarity, tasteful mods and the fact that it has already had the timing chain serviced.

Shipping:
Ignore the flat rate, I'll gladly coordinate shipping (to a salt free climate) at the buyers expense.

I have never gotten good at taking interior pics with a phone and could have used a touchup on the detailing, but I've added a few that show the main wear areas, might put better ones up some other day.

A potentially odd thought, but I have another car that I could use these wheels on, if someone were bringing their own wheels / tires to the deal, I'd happily drop a couple grand off the price.

How much off the price are you thinking if I were to bring my own wheels and tires?

Salt is not far away now here in Chicago, it's time to either sell her or bundle her up for the winter. Any serious offers out there?

I didn't even notice this was a header car.. Somebody buy this car, preferably near the east coast.. And bring it to Avantoberfest next year. [emoji3]

This is a steal!!

Change of plans, I just can't get myself to sell for this low so finding a way to make the payments work instead. She's safely tucked away in a heated garage for the winter.
