Silver over platinum Recaros (no rips or tears in the interior, some wear on driver bolster)
Clean Oregon title in hand and carfax
1995.5 (this was literally audi pushing the time limit to have OBD2 in the car, technically it is a 96 model, but since it was still built in 95 they could sell it as a 95 and not have to switch to an obd2 system like the US law required, some of the special changes for this .5 year model are closed headrests, wide stereo, no diff button, wide first gear in the transmission(very desirable), and other small things)
timing belt was changed beginning of last year by a shop by the previous owner (saw the receipt but she kept it to claim on taxes, she was supposed to make me copies but never got them)\
on the subject of previous owners, it was owned by an older gentleman (dentist), he gave it to the second owner who was his daughter in law or something (didnt fully understand the relationship because she was single), I'm technically the third owner. she had stacks of receipts, the first half was all from the dealer, the second half was from alpine auto which is a known and trusted audi shop (i have several audi friends who take their cars there).
Bad news, i picked it up in half broken half disassembled condition, the previous owner hit a rock that was in the road, it took out the bumper, radiator, and condenser. SHe took it to a body shop for repair/estimates, they stripped it down and "sort of" put it back together when she told them she wouldnt be doing the repairs and sold it to me. Some of the parts were in the trunk (head lights, and the under light trims) however none of the cross member screws or screws for the headlights or the headlight washer covers and a plethora of other random parts were not there, basically they took it all apart and lost most of the bits and pieces to put it all back together. I hate body shops, i dont know what this one was doing and based off what i experienced with them they seemed very shady and i'm glad they didn't do the work.
Good News, I had an oem s6 radiator and condenser from an s6 i recently parted so i threw that on right away to test it out and see if it was worth keeping, i did so and i was very impressed. I have owned 4 c4 s-cars, i have driven 15+ c4 s-cars and this was by far the most dialed in one i had been in, no clunks, no creeks, it did have a small cut out at higher load pulls (turned out to be an airfilter). SO i decided to keep it and put it back together. I found a local silver a6 and robbed it of its front bumper, hood (the stock one had bad rock chips that were getting rusty), and all the oem silver painted hardware i needed.
as far as what i have done:
front end stuff i mentioned above (bumpers front and rear could use paint)
a/c evac and refill (nice and cold!)
Fuel Sender (it was broken when i got it, had a spare )
spark plugs (OEM bosch)
spark plug boots
valve cover gasket (it was leaky and old)
open carbon canister fixed
a bunch of new bulbs in the cluster, needs 1 more (i will probably finish the job before selling)
new brake pads front and rear
new audi oem grey leather armrest without phone, (i have the beat up original one as well)
(lol the small light switch buttons on the drivers and passenger sides, they werent there...)
I also know that the ps pump was replaced with a new one at a cost of over 400 bucks, and also the expensive "J" hose was also replaced with oem at over 300 bucks!
Things I have noticed, this is the "all in the name of full disclosure" stuff:
Small 6" crack in the front windshield, very low on the drivers side, basically right above the wiper.
Trunk struts need to be replaced (the struts are 15 bucks new through autohausaz.com)
I have never tested the tape player or the cd changer, i have just used my ipod radio transmitter with the radio
the key slot for the trunk doesnt work (ie the key wont go into the lock), however the lock is set to lock when you lock the car and works.
I dont have remotes for the keyless entry, but i do have 2 OEM "sidewinder" keys
the front bumper that is on it (a6) obviously doesn't flare how it should and is isn't beautiful (has bad rash, and could use paint)
It has some door dings, there is a cluster or like 3 small ones on the drivers door and there is a somewhat big ding on the rear drivers quarter, it was hard to get pictures of the door dings, but the rear quarter one was obvious, it has light scratches on the body i tried to get a picture of the worst of it on the trunk, im not a body guy but i know most of that stuff will "buff out" it would look much better with a polish.
the passenger side front window has been replaced with an aftermarket piece of glass, it works fine just something i noticed, i also noticed a few pieces of glass when cleaning from what was probably the original one under seats.
gas pedal is missing part of it, super common, doesn't effect drivablity
the lower trim on the front two doors have minor issues
that is everything i can think of for the moment, i actually have been taking notes in my phone and that is pretty much everything i can think of. It runs strong, temps where they should be. I actually feel like this car was never revved past 4k rpm all of its life (up until i owned it!). Overall very solid car, the list of bad stuff is a short one and considering you have owned a few s-cars nothing will be a surprise. The car is ready to be driven anywhere, I wouldn't hesitate to drive it cross country, i would change the oil and go!
Car also passed Utah emissions in September with SUPER low numbers, have that as well to show as well. I'll be posting it on ksl probably later this week, thought i would give the forum first stab. not really looking for trades but you can always ask.
