Then the s4 diff has a diff lock which can be locked manually and the s6 diff has no lock.

Does anyone know how many r/h/d s4 and s6's were imported into the UK and what colours. I'm only talking about the 2.2 turbo's model.

.... as it happens, there's a red 1 on eBay at the moment
Item number 231093676894

(I have no contact not have anything to do with the seller)
It's been on Classic Audi forum for a while, looks save able at least

Many of these get broken up for the engines to use as donors for other Audis

Great cars to drive but horrendous mpg. As long as it's not a daily driver unless you live beside your work a great car. Solid and reliable. Go for 1000 for parts so that would be a base figure.   Brian
