Selling an Audi A4 in excellent mechanical condition, and very good cosmetic condition. The A4 has 123,701 miles and, since it's an Audi, has many more miles to give. The engine runs great and the 5 speed transmission shifts smoothly. This is a fast little car, great on gas, but quick if you want it to be. The ECU has been reprogrammed/tuned by ECS Tuning. There have been no accidents at all in its history prior to a November deer hit, but since then the hood, radiator and support, headlights and condensor were all replaced. The car is very reliable, and can be driven with confidence wherever you need to go.

The Quattro all-wheel drive makes it great in the snow, and it comes with TWELVE (12) tires and wheels - 4 snow tires on the car now, on stock A4 rims; 4 practically new Goodyear all-season tires on sport custom rims (one tire cut/wheel possibly slightly bent by pothole in Oct); and one set of 4 tires with less tread on stock rims. The custom rims were professionally reconditioned, painted and straightened 2 years ago. (PS - You don't have to take all twelve rims and tires if you don't want them all, or take them and sell what you don't want to keep.) The Sport cloth Interior is very clean, no rips or tears, and the car was never smoked in. Split rear seats give access to trunk from inside car, and more room for carrying larger items.

Features:
1.8 liter 4-cylinder engine is great on gas (~25mpg easy) and turbo gives great acceleration - ECS Tuning upgraded ECU (HP / torque is more than stock).
Short shifter makes shifting gears effortless, and transmission is very smooth. Clutch, pressure plate, flywheel and throw-out bearing replaced 3 years ago (21k miles ago).
Audi Concert sound system sounds great, have code and full owner's manual.
Sun/Moon roof opens fully or as vent window.
Trunk lip spoiler.

Here are things recently maintained / upgraded:
New MAF to correct misfire (>$400). New coil packs also bought, but were not the problem, so 4 additional coil packs come with car.
New battery last winter plus new positive battery line to starter.
New front CV boots (new rears were bought at same time, but not needed - will come with car).
New sway bar end links.
New brake rotors, pads and fluid in spring.
New door speakers last year.
New boost gauge two years ago.
New timing belt three years ago (21k miles ago, replaced preventatively)
HID 6000k headlights - even though tabs are broken, the HIDs and ballasts can be reused in the new headlight housing on the car (which are crystal clear).
PA Inspected through 10/12.

Cosmetically, the driver's side fender has small dent from deer hoof, but no paint damage and can be fixed by paintless dent repair. There is a very small rust spot over rear passenger side wheel well, and a couple small nicks in the front fender. All body panels but hood are original, and paint is in good condition.

I would like to get $4600 for the car. It's been well maintained throughout it's life (we are second owners). Clean title and no liens, ready to go.

Thanks for looking.
Please PM with any questions - also, I can send more pics.
