How clean and shiny is this S tronic!!!

Advert has minimal text, but its clear from the pics it has Sat Nav, front parkling sensors, Audi Drive Select - hence a good chance it had the sport diff too.  As per previous posts, if the car has it, it comes on MMI under the ADS individual settings. Pics taken a while ago possibly judging from the direct overhead sunshine. Only 21000 miles, price maybe a little high for a price sale of a 2009

Thats very expensive. i just got a 60 plate from a main dealer for less than that,full years warranty and mot.6k more mileage,but same colour with roughly the same spec! (Minus the diff,but we ain't sure if this one has it yet!)
Got a years tax, full tank of fuel and a load liner too!

Way way too expensive. Some in options on the car, but that's the basic DVD navigation and no advanced key.

They've priced it too optimistically due to the tiny mileage I guess?

Be interesting to see the full spec.  Well spotted on the Nav Graham - the screen is very slightly smaller isn't it

Car is in Richmond area by the looks of it

Giveaway is the joystick in the centre of the MMI dial for HDD nav. If it has MMI 3G it will have multimedia bay in the dash rather than a 6CD changer.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh I said when I sat in your car the other day Graham I could have sworn the changer was in the dash!  Makes sense now

October 2009 '59' S4 Avant S tronic, 34000 miles, Sprint blue, HDD Nav, 6CD, 19s, ADS with sport diff

No pics and no mention of super sport seats but lots with the seats get listed without them declared in the text

Looks like a nice example.

Surprisingly (or maybe not) Audi descriptions of their own cars are not always reliable, so may well have the super sports seats.

I'm becoming more certain these cars are unicorns!

I've been looking since the end of last summer really and in manual cars I've seen two , both 70k+ miles, which is double what I am after, and also a 40k Avant.

Starting to lose faith a bit! All the reviews say sports diff is a must have, but they just aren't for sale! And to be honest, if I was to drop my sports diff requirement, even then there has only been one car thats met my requirements (saloon, manual, nav, supersport seats, b&o) in all that time too!

So many no-option examples out there!

It's more miles than you wanted, but looks a well specced car owned by an enthusiast:

That's why we lucked into the S5 - had everything we wanted bar the body style, but basically wasn't bothered about having a hatch over an Avant or saloon

Just checking - you have test driven one with sports diff above that price range so that you can judge its value for yourself?

I have driven cars with and without sports diff, which is why I ticked that box on my new S5 order. However it is plain to me that many people don't drive their cars in a manner in which sports diff would be any significant advantage. As you have found out, making sports diff a requirement has cut your used car options down to less than 10% of the market, so you'll want to be sure that you really need it.

Does the B7 S4 have any sort of limited slip diff?
