Got any more pics? Interior, under the hood, hatch, etc.?

Anything "bad" that needs fixing? You've listed out all the good things.

Yes I have 1 post. Newbie to VW/Audi, but have 3k posts over at Bimmerforums. Live in Knoxville, TN, but if you're willing to ship I might be interested. Just need more pics. Looking to get into a wagon.

Very detailed pics in the link above. I searched for every possible ding or scratch.

The car is in great condition and there is not much wrong with it:
- Brakes - could use new brakes soon. I was searching for a set of used S4 brakes to upgrade the stopping power instead of replacing the stock brakes.
- Broken glove box hinge - Very common for this car. The best fix is to attach a metal bracket from home depot and paint it to match. Haven't hide time to do this.
- Broken emergency triangle cover latch - This latch hangs open when you open the rear hatch. Tried super gluing the little plastic latch, but it won't hold. Not a major issue, but slightly annoying.
- ESP switch is covered with a carbon fiber sticker - Don't know why the previous owner did this.
- Rear headliner above the cargo area is starting to sag.

It drives and handles smoothly. The upgrades give it more power while retaining (or improving) stock reliability. I take care of all of my cars and do all the recommended preventative maintenance to avoid major problems. I care for them with the intention of keeping them for life (although that doesn't really happen because I have an obsession with cars, but can't afford to own every car I want at the same time :banghead:
