    Suzuka Gray RS4...thoughts?

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    So I've been shopping for an Ibis RS4 after selling off the Misano one last month but then I saw a Suzuka Gray one for sale.

    There aren't a lot of pics out there of this color since apparently there are only 5 of them around.

    Just curious what everyone thinks of the color...I haven't seen it in person so let me know what you think about it.

    Suzuka Grey is a great color. Strong Audi in Salt Lake City delivered a couple in that color and one of the local owners had an RS4, R8, and Q7 all in Suzuka Grey.

    Assuming you mean this one looks like a decent deal, 24K mi, for 46.5, looks nice and I think it does almost look white, would love to see it in person.

    Thanks for the input guys...yes - it's the one in Utah that was on ebay and I just made a deal to pick her up (pending inspection etc). Having an RS4 back in the garage sure will be nice!

    Of course a lot of pics will follow once she's home.

    Cool, when you picking her up? If you need anything while you're in town let me know.

    I figure I'll first have a PPI done and then if it passes that I'll have the local dealer look it over (since they'll put it on a lift and can check DRC's, etc.). If it passes those tests I'll get a round trip ticket and fly up there. If it passes my inspection I'll tape up the front end and drive her home. If not I can hop back on a plane and fly home the next day.

    RS4 in UT - thanks for the offer. If you're close to the guy and are willing to drop by and give the car a looksy let me know. Getting a discerning eye on it before I pay for an inspection couldn't hurt.

    Trying not to get too excited about it until it's inspected but I can already see my own version of the Ti package happening right away...and a cat-back...and...

    hahah I would be excited too, but it doesn't have special interior or CF, you are paying for the special paint I guess.

    That is my ABSOLUTE favorite Audi color. It is one of my favorite overall exterior car colors along with Lexus Glacier Frost Mica.

    Yeah - the coolest thing about my last car was the interior so I will miss that with this one...the aluminum color trim will be replaced with carbon right away.

    Actually it was a ridiculously cool car but was on the verge of being out of warranty. I thought I can sell it and then shop for something new (another RS4, M3, C63, 911...) or buy an extended warranty. In hind sight I should have bought the warranty.

    Brian, I know you are set on the Ibis or Suzuka but have you looked at this '08 Mugello Blue Pearl with the interior you like? I looked at it earlier this week...really nice and it's warranty isn't up until 08/18/12.

    Yeah, I'm pretty much set on either the Ibis or the Suzuka at this point and the Suzuka is certainly more unique and now my preference.

    Kookie - So you've seen the exact Suzuka one we're talking about? And when you say "he bought one" are you talking about the guy who is selling it to me? Sorry...probably one too many Vodka and 7's with dinner tonight for me. :)

    I'll PM you tomorrow to see if you really have time to check it out for me.

    I've seen this exact RS4.. assuming there isn't more than one.. going up parley's canyon here. Yes, I definitely will check it out for you, just shoot me a PM with the specifics.

    I mean you bought one. (after the inspection obviously.)

    I love my Phantom Black RS4, but the Suzuka Grey and the Mugello Blue exteriors are awesome. I'd jump on either one if my wife would let me!

    Awesome! The owner is out of town right now and back on Tuesday I think. Once I connect with him I'll PM you.

    This is one reason I love this forum...a friendly and helpful group of guys with a collective love for these cars.

    Thanks again Kookie.

    is it suzaka? did they make the S4 in suzaka?

    edit: hmm my monitor settings were a little off i think because now it kinda just looks like standard light silver metallic, still nice though.

    I am not sure if its just me, but the alignment of the hood on the passenger side looks a little off. Make sure they check that for a front end accident when you get that car inspected. Again, I may just be seeing things but just wanted to give you a heads up.

    Since the Suzuka's are so rare make sure the one you're looking at in SLC isn't the one discussed in this thread...it is/was in SLC as well.

    Not sure why it is not on the carfax but the front was definitely crunched and repaired."

    Will do. Things might have just changed, hopefully the seller told him about the accident, IF it is in fact the same car. I've seen one Suzuka Gray RS 4 here and it was clean as a whistle..

    If it wasn't claimed, it usually won't show up on carfax... strange though.
