      Looking to get into an Avant fairly quickly so its time to part with this car.

      2001.5 1.8 5-speed with 127xxx miles-Not my dd and only put on 9k miles since Jan 2011. I have honestly babied this car and that can be seen from pictures and in person. One of the cleanest B5's I have personally seen.

      The Good:

      Exterior
      -black roof and mirrors
      -shaved front bumper and rear valence
      -96 euro trunk lid
      -s4 skirts and door mouldings
      -amber corners lights
      -oem racks
      -oem bike attachments

      Interior
      -rarest peanut butter seats, armrest, and door cards
      -s4 cluster
      -s4 woodgrain trim
      -s4 black pillars up int.
      -center vent gauge pod
      -monster mats
      -greddy turbo timer

      Wheels/suspension
      -35th ann. vette wheels
      -less than 500mi Nankang 205/45
      -slotted and dimpled rotor/hawk pads
      -ST coilovers
      -s4 front sway
      -hotchkis rear sway
      -steering rack replaced less than 100miles ago
      -B7 sport wheels with Pirelli tires

      Engine
      -Freshly rebuilt head less than 100miles on it
      -apr, tb hose, and tip
      -intake mani spacer
      -borla exhaust
      -rai test pipe(still have cat if need be)
      -vacuum line sai delete
      -034 coil cover
      -42dd catch can

      def missing stuff

      The bad:
      -Usual B5 LCD screen fade
      -Wavy front drivers fender from rubbing (will try and replace before sale)
      -Common ST coil clunk in rear (1st gen coils known to clunk..not blown)

      Price:
      -$8,000 with everything
      -take off $800 without vette wheels (would be on B7 sport winter wheels)
      -take off $350 no racks/bike attachments
      -take off $400 no coilovers

      Feel free to make offers and if you have an avant maybe we can work out a trade situation.

      I can also vouch for this person. He is known for keeping his car in pristine shape. Wash and wax on a regular basis. Maintenance is always taken care of.
      From a buyer:

      I'm interested, just have to sell my GLI first.

      Questions: how's the turbo? how much oil does it consume? also how's the clutch/gearbox?

      turbo was rebuilt less than 10k ago
      clutch hasnt been replaced to my knowledge but is pretty mint. doesnt make any noise or slip at all.
