    Thread: FS: 2003 Audi Avant 1.8TQ 74k miles, Columbus, OH 43211

    1. 08-24-2011 01:23 AM #1
      SOLD !!!
      I am offering from a private seller, with clean and clear title in hand (with my name on it), a:
      2003 Audi Avant 1.8T Quattro AT5

      it is still under Audi 12 year warranty against corrosion perforation (not that it has so much as single speck of rust on it)

      it came new with following options at the cost of $34,985.00 :
      - light silver metallic
      - ebony interior (no wood trim!!!)
      - automatic 5-speed transmission with Tiptronic
      - Premium Package (Glass Sunroof, Homelink Garage Door Opener, Leather Seating Surfaces, 12-way power driver seat)
      - 17" cast alloy wheels (just completely redone!!!)
      - Bose Premium Sound
      - Cold Weather Package (Heated Front Seats, Ski Sack)
      - Xenon Headlights
      - Rear Side Airbags (rare!!!)

      this vehicle is 100% stock with the exception of a custom Y-pipe that was put in to eliminate the stock center section due to a small leak. The custom mandrel bent and welded Y-pipe cost $200 installed at the local speed shop - the VAG part alone costs $380. The rear mufflers still look like brand new and it was not justifiable to go full turboback aftermarket and also not justifiable to spend $380 on a stock center section when a full aftermarket system costs $1000. This has worked out well for me as the new center section (stock diameter) produces a nice low rumble at the sweet spot.

      The car has only minor cosmetic blemishes and is mechanically at 100%.
      There is a small crack in the driver side seat and some rock chips and minor dents.
      Since the wheels have been refinished one wheel has suffered some slight curbage and another a few minor rockchips - it is all pictured (link to pics below).

      Here is an updated summary of the maintenance and repairs performed in the last months:

      - 7-30-2012, 95881 miles, wheels and tires rotated and balanced free of charge at discount tire

      the vehicle was serviced and maintained at Byers Imports while under warranty, then, as always, off to MOTORKARS.
      I have every document from the window sticker, service records, repair records and every receipt for everything I ever bought for it.

      For over 100 pictures please click: here.

      i have a clean carfax in hand that I can email any interested parties.
      This is the perfect vehicle for a young professional family.
      We just took it from Columbus to Lake Ontario all the way through New England to Bar Harbor Maine (Acadia National Park) and back
      and would not hesitate to do it again tomorrow.

      i only accept cash at any local huntington. nothing else. I will save you money on taxes.
      asking SOLD obo.

      kind regards

      I really wish you were closer to MA. This is the exact car I am looking for.

    5. 10-22-2011 02:18 PM #5
      i was just in Boston, MA with the car and travel to your neck of the woods quite frequently.
      That means i have no problem with delivering the car after up front payment,
      and would give you the money back if i wrecked the car on the way or anything crazy like that.

      on the other hand getting in a plane is a small price to pay for the exact thing you are looking for.

      Hmm. That is quite tempting. Could you provide me with with VIN number?

      I actually flew to PA and drove 5 hours back to buy my last GTI. It's not really an option for me right now as I jut started a new job last week and have been quite busy with that.

    7. 10-23-2011 01:23 PM #7
      please PM me your email address and I will send you VIN and carfax,
      furthermore there are over 100 pics here :

      you can also see the VIN on the windowsticker....

      i know how a new job goes, but fly in saturday morning and be home for dinner .....

      Turned down job. 20k cash bonus too. Salary sucked.
      Was so close to calling you.

      Will probably be gone by the time I figure things out. Le bummed.

    19. 12-02-2011 05:25 PM #19
      well you never know. i just discovered that the clear coat in one of the wheels is cracked.
      i will have wheelmedic redo that asap. i am confident it will not be a problem, not worried about it.

      This is a sweet ride.
      Worth it.
      Instead of buying gifts for my kids, I shoulda bought this for myself.

    23. 12-30-2011 01:00 PM #23

      as soon as i found a downpipe this thing will be back to 100%.

      I love the car and I'm an Avant aficionado, but I don't have the cash you want for the car unfortunately. I have an '03 20th GTI, but that's about it :[

    31. 02-15-2012 01:36 PM #31
      seems like no one has any cash these days, so i would not feel bad about it.
      replaced the flex pipe this morning and the car is back to 100% !!!
