Transmission oil & filter - 145K miles
Spark plugs, coolant tank, air filter, vacuum lines - 140K
ABS control unit replaced - 145K miles
Front CV joints replaced within last 10K miles
New front calipers, pads & rotors, brake fluid this year
Just changed engine oil & filter (Mobil1 full synthetic 5/10/14)
Always changed oil every 6 months with only full synthetic oil
New OEM xenon HID bulbs installed 3 months ago
New battery in January

BUMP my situation has changed a bit and need to sell by the end of the month (registration expires, bought replacement vehicle).
Car just passed IL emissions, certificate is in the Flickr album. Selling for $4500 which I think is more than fair. Firm price.

Let us know what you do.

I've got it up on eBay, already didn't sell once with a reserve of $4,500. Only got up to $3,400.

Here's the relisted link in case any one is interested. Thanks Sloop!

its got the more interesting interior color, yellow/cream and smurf blue, which turn some people off. I think its kind of a cool color scheme. Good luck on the sale add some more pictures.

I have the same flickr link in the auction, do you think people really aren't clicking and only seeing the 4 pictures uploaded? I will edit it to add more I guess

I really meant a professional local action. eBay not so much.

I hardly ever see them in DC area for sale with low mileage...this ones is 14 years old, stuff happens and is expensive to fix unless you can do it yourself. So so gas mileage too. Hope it sells... I wish they ahd kept the 4.2 in the A6.

Are you in DC or VA? If so, I'm about an hour and a half south of you. When I was looking for an A6 I looked high and low for one with a manual transmission and found one in Northern VA but it turned out to be a total dump. Finally found one not 10 miles from my house that was much nicer but has still needed some work.

I really hope I can sell it this week. I'm getting offers for $3K it's making me sick thinking about selling it for $3K. I'm a realist and I'm the first one to say that a car is only worth what someone is willing to pay but an A4's of the same mileage/year are pulling in over $3K.

Yep…by the time someone sells them they ALL need work. Otherwise, why sell one in 'perfect, needs nothing' condition. Unless you get one from the proverbial old lady that only drove to church on sunday and parked in a garage at Leisure World and her estate is selling it…..
