      It's a good 50 ft. car. I make no excuses for the condition, as the pictures speak for themselves. It could use a good detail.

      227,XXX miles





      Details:

      Racing Green Pearl Effect Exterior
      Tan Leather interior with Recaro Sport seats
      Premium Comfort Package (Expandable ski sack; Power rear sunshade with manual rear side sunshades)
      The rest are standard items (solar sunroof, etc.)



      Maintenance & Modifications performed at ~207,000 (~early 2015)

      new fuel pump
      timing belt, water pump service
      valve cover gaskets
      trans fluid flush
      power steering flush
      refreshed all 4 brake calipers
      3-D printed brake block
      New oil check valves in the block and valley pan gasket


      Other items replaced within the last 18 months or so:

      replaced fan blower
      replaced pass side catalytic converter (magnaflow)
      replaced all front control arms
      new pcv valve
      new pass side aftermarket (mid-range mfg) cam tensioner assembly
      Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric M+S tires (245/45/18)

      Items replaced within the last 2 weeks:

      Brake pads and rotors on all 4 corners
      all 8 coil packs replaced with B6 S4 ones


      I have a non-plate filler for the front but it's not the right color

      It still has the belly pan, too.



      Issues:

      Trans starts in limp mode when it's cold out. After a few minutes simply restart and it's fine.
      Valve cover gaskets leak (still).
      Still some clickety-clack from the cam adjusters on cold startup
      Misc dents, scratches, clear coat peeling, etc. (see pictures)

      $3,800

      I'm located in the Pittsburgh, PA area and will consider free delivery to some NE or midwest locations.

      Nice. You've had a lot of the PITA/expensive things taken care of. Good luck with the sale. They're fantastic cars when they're in good order, and not so much when they aren't.
