Home / Audi News / Officially For Sale: My B7 Audi S4

 

img_1667

It’s been almost five years of enjoyment with my 2006 Audi S4, but I’m officially listing it for sale. It’s been an amazing car, and I think the B7 S4 could be perhaps the best automotive “bang for your buck” that you can buy for $20k or less. You can find a full mod list here that links out to a review of each part in meticulous detail, but the basics are below along with some recent pictures. If I don’t receive interest in buying the car as-is by the end of the year, I will part out the modifications and return to stock for an easier sale. Email me at cars@nickroshon.com if interested, if I don’t receive quick interest in the car as-is, I will begin parting out.

Modifications:

A full mod list can be found at http://nickscarblog.com/my-b7-s4, but highlights are listed below. I have spared no expense in buying the best parts for this car, and each part has been thoroughly reviewed on this site so you can get an idea of its benefits. My goal was to make this car the ultimate “do anything” car, from looking good in a parking lot car show to performing at the track, all while maintaining a great daily driver experience.

  • Detailed at least once per year with full clay & two stage orbital polish
  • California & Arizona car, no rust and barely ever seen snow/salt/etc.
  • Never smoked, adult driven

Issues:

  • Front driver’s seat has wear in bolster from normal use (pictured below)
  • Chip in side skirt below rear passenger door (visible in first picture in post, below the rear door blade)
  • A few paint chips on front bumper & hood from normal use (can text or email pics of all chips, but they’re minor)
  • Front lip is pretty much destroyed (see second picture, big chunk missing under driver’s side fog grill)
  • Ohlins last rebuilt about 2 years ago, could use a refresh eventually but fine for a little while given low mileage

Ultimately I’d love to see this go to an enthusiast who will appreciate the car as-is. I’ve spent a ton of blood, sweat and tears to make this car the best possible version of the S4 I could imagine, and to recreate this yourself you’d spend a lot more money then buying this car as-is and making whatever subtle tweaks you want. I still have a stock hood, most of the stock bulbs, and a stock steering wheel which can be included in sale or I can return those parts back to stock and knock a little off the asking price. More pictures can be found below in my Flickr gallery which shows the progression of the car over the last 5 years:

  1. Nick,
    I just signed up for your blog yesterday and this is the first email I get? Sad day… My 2005 B7 S4 will miss your S4. What vehicle is on deck?

  2. Not 100% sure yet, but my top contenders are either a new S3 or a used Porsche 997. Thoughts on both here: http://nickscarblog.com/cars/used-997-carrera-review and here: http://nickscarblog.com/cars/2017-audi-s3-review. Something tells me I’ll still be involved in the B7 community though, wish I could just keep this car and get something else but I don’t have the room or money to justify that…mostly just looking for a new project, after 5 years with the B7 I’d love something new to tinker with and learn about.

  3. Hey Nick.

    Sad to see you’re moving on. Being a SD guy too I became an avid follower of your blog and it has allowed me to attempt numerous DIYs on my B7. GL with whichever car you decide on and hopefully you keep this blog up, would love to read on even if it isn’t Audi related.

  4. Jeff – thanks for the kind words. I’m not going anywhere, just going to start a new project. Let me know if you ever need a hand with a DIY, and hope to meet you at a local car show sometime. Will definitely keep the blog up, TBH part of the motivation for a new car is to get to blog my experience with driving and modifying something new – after 5 years with the S4 I’ve ran out of things to mod and said pretty much everything I can about the platform, lol.
