That is a nice car. Will it pass CA smog? Any idea on 1/4 mile time?

Also, why get rid of it now that it's sorted? What about the V8 makes you want to switch to it?

It passed smog when I got it last March and passed in May. Then the Cat fell apart so I had the guys at Claudius punch it out until the next time I have to smog. Then I would have a high flow cat installed. Of course now I have to get one installed sooner in order to sell it.

Sorry don't know what the 1/4 mile time is as I am not interested in that sort of thing. I don't think I have the balls to launch it. ;)

S4 For Sale

Interested in knowing more about the S4 you have for sale. Can you tell me a little more about the car's history and what needed sorting out? Also, could you send a few more pictures of the car and do you have the original seats? I assume when you say you want to keep the lights and panel for your new car, the stock lights would be re-installed, yes? You can email me back at [email protected]. Looks like you are located in California?

What needed sorting out already has been completed as listed above. Car is set and ready to go with the exception of smog which I can either put in a cat or you can find someone that can "smog" it. Car runs amazingly strong with out a cat though. Yes stock lights with zero cracks will be installed in its place.

As for history, I am the 4th owner. First owner was some hockey player who bought it for his wife. Second owner is the hockey player's brother, third owner was my seller and finally me. :D 90% of the mileage was put on by the first owner. I have all paperwork dating back to when the car was new.

I will send higher res photos to your email.

Thanks!

OK, enough of that.. considering the work youve done on the one your selling, the V8 must be stellar.. Start another thread if need be with info on it and pics or the penalty is you must ship to me the round taillight panel with lights..

P.S. if the V8 sells before I sell mine then I will keep this car and will be off the market.

Thanks!
