    FEELER: SLU_S5s Competition Plus Face-lifted 6MT V8 2010 S5 Prestige

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    TLDR: this is a feeler intended to stop folks from messaging me to say hey, your car is cool, how much do you want for it. I suppose everyone has a price - mine is stated below.


    2010 Audi S5 Prestige (6MT)
    VIN: (Upon Request)
    88,9xx Miles
    Used to be a daily driver until last year. Now I only drive it ~100mi/week, and I store it for the winter about 80% of mileage is highway
    Location: Rochester, NY




    Quick Summary:
    No accidents/Non-smoker
    Brilliant Black exterior
    Black Napa leather interior
    Six-Speed Manual Transmission
    B8.5 Facelift with Competition Plus Bumper

    An excellent, well maintained daily driver with thousands spent on tasteful upgrades- I'd boldly estimate that it performs better than 95% of all other NA V8 S5s out there.
    Quattro AWD System that is INCREDIBLE in the winter.

    Options:
    Every Available option except adaptive cruise
    Prestige Package (Heated seats, voice activated nav, keyless start, blind spot warning, etc.)
    Bang & Olufsen Sound
    Sports Differential
    Audi Drive Select





    History:
    To my knowledge, the car was leased and then purchased by a dentist through Schmitts Audi in Buffalo NY. He then traded it in for a new 911 at Northtown Porsche during the summer of 2014. The car had a CPO warranty until the previous owner traded it in, and Audi Care service was transferred to me ended in November 2014.

    Ive owned the car since October 2014. Purchased from Northtown with 29,xxx miles and very meticulously maintained since my first day of ownership. I have spared no expense with maintenance and upgrades with long-term longevity as my primary concern. Anyone who sees and/or drives the car would agree that Ive accomplished the goal of retaining an OEM+ type of look and feel through tasteful modification. Only the best available parts used, and maintenance was done regularly, often ahead of schedule as a preventative measure.

    The maintenance and upgrades on this car have been my obsessive hobby for the past 4+ years. So obsessive in fact, that I have risked my own health and many friendships while working on this car and researching how to best keep it maintained. Really- I'm not kidding. My objective is/was to keep this car at like-new mechanical condition before working on any of the additional upgrades (below) to enhance its drivability & appearance.

    Overall, its an extremely clean, well maintained and unique S5. Aesthetically speaking, every single part that I have changed is still OEM (except for the custom spoiler). It is very often mistaken for a RS5 because it does share a few RS5 components, and the Competition Plus Bumper looks very similar to the RS5. My vision of modding this car to be a cross between a S5 and RS5 was fully achieved. It performs and looks like Audi created something in between the two models.

    I'd estimate that I put close to $24,000 into this S5 during my period of ownership Over $28,000 if were including labor costs. Take a look at the list. I'm not making this up.

    I have treated this car like it was a six-figure exotic since day one. Always parked in the back of parking lots. Washed inside and out at least monthly- usually every other week (weather permitting).

    Full disclosure: It has taken a total of 15 paced (65-70mph) laps around Watkins Glen International during the past two opening day weekends yes, thats the day where they let minivans drive on the track. I wouldnt qualify that as actual track-time, but technically, it has been on the track. It has also been to the local mile track where I did a total of three passes. Never launched outside the three time trials at the mile track, and never launched after the new clutch was installed.





    In the 4 years I have owned it, the following maintenance work has been done: I have a huge paper file with every receipt Ive ever received. Some maintenance items I have done myself (oil,filters & brakes for example)

    Oil changed with Audi-specific Mobil One full synthetic every 3,000-5,000 miles. Fueled regularly with 93 octane gasoline (usually from Mobil). Checked by Audi specialists at CDI in Victor, NY any time I had any concern.

    Some highlights - I will gladly provide fully detailed maintenance info to any serious prospective buyer:

    Regular 4 wheel alignment with any suspension work
    ~60k- RS5 Front Brake package installed (Rotors, Pads, Lines, Fluid)
    ~65k- Clutch, flywheel, throw-out bearing, clutch line, clutch fork, fluid, & associated hardware replaced.
    right rear wheel bearing replaced (same as clutch)
    ~74k Rear brake pads and rotors replaced
    ~75k Carbon Clean, injector rebuild, coolant flush, adjustable control arms installed, & Engine Mount replacement
    ~ 80k HVAC blower motor replaced
    ~85k Audi Recall on Catalytic converters - replaced with brand new cats

    Other:
    Owners manuals and two keys included
    Most service records since I have owned it, and many records from previous ownership (I keep a big folder of the parts, services, etc.

    Needs/Full disclosure:

    Drivers side bolster is a little worn, but stitching is perfect. The leather is sound.
    Sunroof shade stopped working the retractable screen broke and I was going to replace it (for roughly $200), but never got around to it as it does not bother me.
    Keyless entry door handle sensors work intermittently - never got around to replacing many have had luck buying the ~$30 replacement sensors from eBay.
    The rear bumper has been professionally repainted by a high-end autobody shop I slowly backed into the license plate of another vehicle in my driveway. It scratched the bumper, and I had it repainted to new condition. The color match is 100% perfect, and the paint is guaranteed for life.
    Strangers will walk up to you at gas stations and will want to learn about you and your car. The majority will be males aged 20-55, and many mistake it for a RS5.

    The Good:
    Pulls strong, 354+ HP at the crank have not had it dynoed after clutch upgrade. Would estimate that it's near 300AWHP - roughly 380-400HP at the crank.
    Newer heavy duty Clutch & Flywheel
    Has just about every imaginable performance part on the market - ready for you to supercharge if so desired.
    Suspension good, very solid handling feel
    AWD system and sport differential work great- Incredible in any road condition, including snow
    Recently Carbon cleaned, all maintenance up to date.
    Great mechanical shape
    Body is very clean no highly noticeable dings or dents. Freshly corrected paint and ceramic coated.
    Interior is in great shape. Leather is soft and the seats are extremely comfortable
    No warning lights or codes on dash
    Constant compliments, thumbs up on the road (even from police), children hanging out of windows to take photos
    You may overhear someone call your car Iron Mans Car even though its clearly not a R8

    Im probably forgetting a bunch more.

    Why am I selling?
    Well Im not really trying to sell. Frankly, there are currently no other cars that Im interested in at this moment. Since the facelift especially, Ive received a number of PMs and DMs on Facebook and Instagram asking what my magic number is for selling my car. The purpose of this post is to let folks know how much my car is worth to me, and how much it would take for me to sign the title over to someone new. Youll see my price in the next paragraph. Clearly, I'm not in any rush, and it would take a very serious offer to get me interested.

    $25,000 for everything listed car & all stock parts mentioned above. Title in hand, owned free and clear, ready to go.

    I understand that some folks who failed to read this post in its entirety may have gripes with the asking price... Say what you want. I dont care. As mentioned above, I have well over the asking into the car as it sits now anyway. Worst case scenario is I get to enjoy my car for myself for years to come.


    Please feel free to contact me via PM with any questions/comments/concerns. Pictures, videos, & more info available upon request.

    More in my "build" thread here: http://www.audizine.com/forum/showth...o-Thread/page4

    Part-out requests will be ignored. This car will be left completely as-is unless a legitimate buyer wishes for parts to be removed.

    Thanks,
    Josh

    Thanks!!

    I figure who knows, maybe an enthusiast looking for a Facelifted 6MT V8 will pop up and take it off my hands. Im not counting on it though, so Im very happy to keep it and continue tinkering with things here and there for a long time to come.

    To me, there is nothing better than documentation on a vehicle like this. You have an amazing record that should make any buyer confident. GLWS, just bought a 10 S5 and that came with proper documentation and I'll continue as you have.

    Seeing that 88k mile ones are going for $17k here in socal,
    $25k is really good considering all the mods and maintenance done...especially big ticket items such as the clutch and carbon cleaning.

    Thanks all for the positive comments. I really appreciate it!

    If properly maintained, I dont see why any modern car couldnt go beyond 300k Kilometers (~186k miles). I have no doubt that Ill eventually reach that mileage - assuming I keep my car and continue with maintaining it to the utmost degree.

    An idea for a new car was planted in my head that Im on the fence about... that said, Im still in no rush at this point, but certainly open to legitimate offers.

    I would totally take all the B8.5 stuff. Looking for an excuse to facelift.

    OP, great-looking car that's well cared for with a very fair asking price given condition, mods, and documentation, IMO.
