New daily driver. Nogaro blue S4 avant!

Postby maverick » Sat Jun 03, 2017 4:01 pm

I wasn't looking for another car, but I happened to stumble across this b5 S4 for sale in my city for 2 grand, and I couldn't pass it up. It's far from perfect, but it's going to make a great daily driver/tow rig. It's already got a stage 1 tune from somebody, but otherwise it's stock.

I think it was owned by a responsible owner up to about 3 years ago. There were dealership service receipts for preventative mainenance pretty consistently until 2014. Then it was owned by an awful woman who treated it like garbage. There was dog food/hair/slobber on EVERY surface of the interior. Took forever to clean it out.

Spent my first day with the car like this. Leaking heater core. :bangshead:

After the heater core, I had to replace an EGT sensor and an O2. After that it passed smog and I got it registered. :drive:

The only other thing I did was take about 30 minutes to touch up some paint damage from the previous owner. I found a can of touch up paint in the trunk, and decided to just touch up the missing paint with a paint brush. Just to make it a little less obvious. Turned out better than I expected.

I'm pretty pumped about it! I may do a manual swap at some point, but other than that I don't plan on much modification. Like I said, it's a little rough, but it makes for a great daily!

Nice score! I also just picked up a B5 S4 6spd Avant, although mine is a little (lot) rougher than yours, but it was only $800 so I literally couldn't not buy it. Mine's black on black, needs front control arms, valve covers gaskets & cam seals, and a few other little things (aka it's a B5).

I was just telling my girlfriend the only way mine could have been a better score is if it was Nogaro... so I'm jealous. :rofl:
