    Someone needs to bring this car back to life. Please and thank you. No affiliation but it's a shame to see a 1 of 1 car in this condition.

    Haven't seen many timing failures on an rs4... If it ends up needing a replacement engine... I don't see the value. At 8k, the car is worth it tho

    The value is really if you can do the work yourself. I'd imagine something else is wrong unless it needs a replacement engine. Timing failures would lead to more than just misfires I'd think.

    Yeah, hard to say based on the info given. I'm guessing the owner took it to a shop and it had a multitude of codes indicating a timing issue.

    Could be something relatively minor and then the car is a steal. But if it needs chains done, it's not THAT great of a deal.

    Agreed

    Just based on those pictures: looks like new door blades ($1k+?), front respray fenders/bumper ($1k+), paint correction ($1k), steering wheel ($500+), engine work ($1k-$10k), new window ($500?), door cards look pretty rough too ($400?). $5k up to $14k in just known costs.

    Would think maybe the Audi shop would buy it.

If you want RS cards). $5k up to $14k in just known costs.

    Looking at $3500ish WITHOUT engine work. Could be a great deal...

    The timing chain guides are fine. Probably a camshaft adjuster that failed.

    That's what I figured. Not too expensive of a fix
