Hi All,

I've been a little inactive on here - enjoying the car too much...! But it's sadly time to sell.

Here's the advert, just on here for the moment but will be up on Pistonheads at some point. The car is located in Cardiff, many thanks for looking,

Laurence

Audi RS4 (B5) 490BHP 500ft lbs (2001)
121,000 miles 15,750

Sadly, after nearly 6 years I have to put this great car up for sale. I have been the 5th owner. Its been faultless, and maintained by MRC without compromise. The spec is massive as listed below. Its currently producing 490BHP and 500ft lbs with a 0-60 time of 3.6seconds by the previous owner. Many of you may remember this as Rob Hunters car and can vouch for how well he looked after it.
Ive continued to maintain and enhance it irrespective of cost so it currently wants for nothing. Always run on Tesco Momentum or Shell V-power, with full warm up and warm down.
The double whammy of a wedding and new house purchase mean it has to go. Im hugely reluctant to sell it so will not part with it easily!
Its behaved immaculately throughout my ownership and been given the usual MRC treatment every year, so should serve whoever buys it well for years to come.
New MOT and complete service less than 4 weeks ago at MRC with no advisories and no additional work needed. Its also just had 4 brand new Conti Sport 6 tyres this month, and a paint repair to the front bumper as one of my neighbours kindly reversed into it 2 months ago Im still fuming So for all this, Ive spent over 1800 on the car in the last 4 weeks, just to get it ready for the lucky new buyer..!
Its covered 121k miles but is still being used regularly so expect this to rise.

This comes to in excess of 16k alone! The car has been meticulously maintained at a huge cost. I have all the receipts plus full documentation of the service history.

Most of the interior plastics have been replaced including the RS side strips (500). The old crackly Bose speakers have been changed for Infiniti 1s, the difference is remarkable. Even the interior carpet has been replaced because the old one had a wear hole in the drivers footwell, as many of these suffer from.

A vast majority of hoses have been replaced along with the fuel lines. The power amplifiers and coilpacks have also been replaced. The car has been frequently pressure tested by MRC and therefore performance is never compromised! Lambda and EGT sensors have been replaced.

The exterior and interior modifications have been carefully selected to improve the usability and drivability. Most of the parts have been added within the last few years so the car looks and drives like new with a sound that is amazing!

The car has never been raced around a track although it would make a great track car if thats what someone wanted.

The body work and interior is in beautiful order and looks as good as a 5 year old car, allowing for a few age-related marks.

The car had a new clutch fitted by MRC by the previous owner at a cost of 750 after the 0-60 attempt!

The cams, lifters and chains plus cambelt kit were fitted at 70k at a cost of 3.5k and a full cambelt service was re-done in 2016 so that's yet another expensive bill you wont have to pay! In the last 3 years it has also had, amongst other things, new rear discs and pads, new auxiliary coolant pump, new drop links, new inner track rods, new rear wish bones, new front pads and discs and a new oil cooler.

You'll certainly find cheaper RS4s for sale but many look tired and costs will soon spiral out of control when adding basics mods, and youll also find ridiculously overpriced ones.

There are of course a few minor bad points as with any >15 year old car. Although only 4 years old, a couple of the alloys have some minor curbing and there are a few of the usual age related body marks. The dash display has an intermittent fault with some of the pixels but this is really very minor. Having said all that, Im not convinced that photos do this car justice.

Please no canvassers or test pilots. I will need proof of insurance if you would like to test drive the car, plus, please don't come see the car if you don't have the funds available.

Thanks for all the comments.
I'm afraid the price is gonna have to change.
I'd be an an idiot to not take all this advice on board, I've had so many comments about this, and in no immediate rush to sell.
Sorry if this now puts a few off.
