Greg's 2000 S4 - For Sale!!
This little rocket replaced the 1991 200q
(which I still miss...)
This is one FINE little car. It's a lot smaller than the 200
(the back seat is not really usable for two adults for very long) but it SCOOTS.
TONS of torque and a 6-speed transmission which it doesn't really need. I smile
whenever I drive this car. It's pretty much a stock 2000 S4 except for some
items listed below. And you now what? This car doesn't need to be modified. It's
Right" from the factory. Sure a lot of guys want more (can you ever
have "enough" horsepower?) but I like it the way it is. Highly recommended, two thumbs up.
I am the original owner having obtained
it on lease in May of 2000, then I purchased it off-lease in the summer of 2003.

- Adult non-smoker, owned and driven.
- No damage history at all.
- Exterior is super. Minor road chips on leading edge of hood. Paint is
waxed but could use some compounding.
- Interior is also great shape. No damage and in very good shape.
Repairs/Maintenance to date (as of 08/2011, ~141K miles):
Meticulous maintenance. Oil and filter changes, etc,
usually at half the standard rate (Mobil 1 synthetic every 3-4k miles)

- Paint needs compounding. There's some light water spots that need to be
- Time for front suspension links again; I think there's a worn out link
on the left front corner. It just started happening a couple weeks ago, I've
not yet put it on the lift to check it out. Symptoms are a slight rattle
from the front end and I'm getting a slight toe-out/camber change
going over bumps. I've got a box of good used links from when I replaced
them all before, one might fix it. If not,
Tuning offers a complete kit of links for $400.
- T-belt is due, and I'd suggest doing the water pump and thermostat while
you're in there. Hell,
I'd buy the whole kit and kaboodle and do it all. It's not a tough job,
I did it myself at 75k; if you're in the area I'd even be glad to help you
do it at my house.
Right rear Bose speaker needs replacing.
I decided to lease a new VW GTI. The S4 is running great and is not giving
any indication of trouble, and I'd not hesitate to take it across the country if
needed; I just had the "I wannas" for a new car.
KBB show this car in excellent condition with a
retail value of about $6,800. There are some immediate "opportunities"
listed above that will add to initial costs (and I'm willing to help out with
the installation if you buy the parts). On the other hand, the car comes with a
complete set of BBS wheels with summer tires and the original Avus wheels with
winter tires, and don't forget that
boxes APR exhaust.
Given all this, the asking price for the car is $7500, or $8500 if you feel
the need to negotiate. If someone wants to buy the exhaust separately, I'll
lower the price of the car appropriately.
I'd Like To See It!
Car is located in Middletown CT and can be made available for review and test
drives most weekends. Contact Greg Amy (grega03*at*pobox.com) to arrange it.
