Car has been sold.
184K( roughly). 21K since 1.8T and 6sp swap. Blue Anthracite Pearl with cloth heated seats. Not sure if driver’s side heat is working. Full OEM dash and engine wiring. Multi-function steering wheel, no cover (I prefer it this way, it’s just smooth rubber). Most records since 2005 (72K). A8 front brakes, stainless front brake lines, D2S HID projectors with LaminX, B5.5 center console.

Swap thread: 6sp Manual Trans and 1.8T Engine Swap

The bad: Sagging cloth and needs headliner. Fading clear on hood and passenger side door. Slight vibration from center driveshaft or rear diff at 45-78mph, may need balance, rear mounts or alignment. Lower door plastic covers cracked. Spacer on rear O2 sensor due to code. Several minor dings/dents. Dash rattles, 1 small crack, left mount points cracked. Cruise works, but drops speed in small increments (.25 Mph) over time.

1.8T block has 83K, K03s has same, head has 22K. Trans has 141K and is a little notchy when cold. Stock AUG engine, not chipped and includes a spare ECU. OEM clutch is good, probably 83K. All new clutch hydraulics with swap, 034 Trans mounts.

Less than 1K on rebuilt driveshaft. 21K on Timing belt, oil pump/pickup, heater core, oil pan. Less than 21K on R8 coils, spark plugs, CCT, coil connectors, metal coolant flange, coolant, polished billet aluminum dipstick, ESS, CTS, coolant tank, Intake spacer, injector seals, MAF, PCV, oil cooler seal, LCD display, headlights and S4 front axles. New alternator, wiper blades, Oil change/filter/techron and air filter. No leaks, runs great. a/c works great.

Suspension: 5K or less on lower Meyle HD control arms, brand new uppers. Koni yellows with coil-over sleeves (set any height you want). H+R Race springs from an A6Q. 1BE rear sway bar. 16” Mille Miglia wheels (oem A6, hubcentric), 5K on Bridgestone RE980 205/55/16 tires. Fantastic handling with a good ride.

I am sure there is much more that I have forgotten. Car will come with Bentley manual, spare cluster (cracked cover), fuel filter. Haynes also available. I will get new pics this weekend. I am sure this car is worth much more in parts, but I can not part it out.

The buyer will have 1st choice to purchase all performance parts I have in the garage for my cost. This includes a forged crank built 2.0 short block , a GTX2863 turbo kit, an 034 HFC, large FMIC, Full TT 2.5” stainless downpipe and dual exhaust, 240mm RA4 Stage 2 clutch, 6 point front upper strut bar, 034 solid linkage, crossover link and short shifter, Thor skidplate, MK6 R32 3 spoke steering wheel, rear bumper cover, Hotchkis RS6 24mm rear and 35mm S4 front sway bars, front leveling motors and switches. I also have a full donor car (for the next 30 days) if any body parts are needed. I expect much more that I have forgotten about.
