1998 98 1997 97 Audi A6 Quattro Wagon V6 2.8l Mechanics Special Ran Great on 2040-cars

Year:1998 Mileage:125000
Location:

Accord, New York, United States

Accord, New York, United States

(actual model year 1998 but the wagon version was carried over from 1997 with C4 platform) compatible with most parts from 1992-1997 A4 or A6. Audi A6 avant (wagon) quattro AWD (all-wheel drive) with 2.8L V6 AFC engine, single-overhead cam 12-valve has plenty of power and torque (when running), top of the line for it's day, white/tan leather interior, dark midnight blue exterior, power everything, sunroof works, heated seats, 3rd row seats in back fold down flat.
Treated body from factory is very resistant to rust and will stay solid for many years.

Was running great, has about 125,000 miles, clean inside and out. It was our daily driver until the engine blew a head gasket. 
It's a beautiful luxury car that only needs piston rings since I already had the heads done with new gaskets but now compression is still low in 3 cylinders which increases when cylinders are lubed which indicates rings. Rings are cheap and easy but means the engine must be pulled out. 
It still turns over and cranks but has not run due to poor compression. 

Feel free to contact with any questions. See photos below, or request more images if you need?
These are amazing cars that handle like a dream... so come get it before I change my mind and fix it!
Email is best (click link at the top) or text or message 646-484-8058.
Car is located near highway 209 between Kingston and Ellenville with easy access by tow truck or trailer. I might be able to use my roadside assist and transport it within 95 miles (maybe).
Please MAKE AN OFFER!  Cash in person preferred.
-> NOTE: this car is NOT RUNNING and is being SOLD AS-IS. must be TOWED by BUYER. <-

Recent work:
New battery,
New head gaskets, intake and valley pan gasket,
New timing belt and serpentine accessory belt service, including new idler & tensioner rollers, 
New water pump and thermostat, had all new G12 pink coolant (must be correct for these engines),
New temperature sensor, 
New oil change and filter with full synthetic Pentosin 5w-40,
New wiper blades, 
New exhaust flange bolts & proper springs joining catalytic pipe to rear,
New rear brakes both sides left and right, totally new calipers with hydraulic slave cylinders, brake pads still good, 
New parking brake cable,
New transmission filter kit (parts only) included.

Wheels shown are not included (winter tires) available separately, comes with stock 15" Audi wheels with decent tires.
Even as-is the car has value for all the good parts.
KBB blue book value for a good A6 is about $5,000 so with a few cheap parts and some labor, this could be worth fixing.
Thank you.

    Audi unveils its Doberhuahua Super Bowl commercial

    Mon, 27 Jan 2014 12:44:00 EST

    With Super Bowl Sunday less than a week away, this week is going to be dominated by anything and everything football related. That includes advertising and the auto industry, as some of the biggest players prepare to launch multi-million-dollar spots hawking their latest and greatest products.
    A veteran of Super Bowl ads, Audi's history has been rather checkered, ranging from controversial to funny to Jason Statham. We aren't entirely sure where to place this year's ad. The German brand has released a pair of teaser videos on the so-called Doberhuahua, a crossbreed of a Doberman Pinscher and a Chihuahua. Now, we have the full spot.
    We get the message Audi is going for - compromise is bad - but delivering it via a slobbery, mutant dog strikes us as trying a bit too hard to be funny. Take a look below and let us know what you think of the Audi's Doberhuahua spot. And of course, you'll be able to see the new ad come Sunday, when it airs during the Super Bowl.

    Audi scores 100th LMP win

    Tue, 24 Sep 2013 14:29:00 EST

    Loïc Duval, Tom Kristensen and Allan McNish took the No. 2 Audi R18 E-Tron Quattro to victory at this weekend's Six Hours of Austin at the Circuit of the Americas, marking the 12th victory for the R18 body and the 100th LMP overall victory for Audi since 2000. The milestone victory also saw a second R18, driven by Marcel Fässler, André Lotterer and Benoît Tréluyer, take third place.
    Audi's LMP boss, Chris Reinke pointed out the poignancy of snagging the brand's 100th victory in the US, saying, "For Audi, it's a very special result because it was the 100th victory in LMP racing. We celebrated the first victory int he USA as well, in 2000. What could be sweeter than achieving this milestone here?" It wasn't all easy going, though, as the team was racing at COTA for the first time, and the No. 1 car had more than a few difficulties.
    This victory marked the 12th for the R18 since it started racing in 2011. For comparison, the R15 TDI only managed three victories between 2009 and 2011, and the R10 TDI took 22 wins between 2006 and 2008. Those cars are overshadowed by the original Audi R8 racecar, which won 63 races between 2000 and 2006. Take a look below for the full press release from Audi, and additional quotes from team members.

    Audi Nanuk Quattro Concept is a wild surprise ahead of Frankfurt

    Mon, 09 Sep 2013 16:00:00 EST

    Volkswagen Group Night ahead of the Frankfurt Motor Show always has some surprises, the first of which this year is the Audi Nanuk Quattro Concept. The all-wheel-drive, turbo-diesel-powered supercar is similar to the Giugiaro Parcour Concept that was unveiled earlier this summer. In fact, the Parcour's creator, Italdesign Giugiaro, penned the Nanuk, and we suspect much of the former found its way into the latter - with some changes, of course.
    The diesel engine, a departure from the Parcour, is a twin-turbocharged 5.0-liter V10 TDI unit that develops 544 horsepower and a hole-digging 738 pound-feet of torque, which make the 4,189-pound all-road vehicle able to dispatch 0-62 miles per hour in 3.8 seconds and go on to a 190-mph top speed. Fuel consumption is a relatively low 30 miles per gallon for a car with this much performance.
    The Nanuk showcases Audi's Quattro, though it uses a specially designed version of the all-wheel-drive system to get the job done. Audi's next generation of adaptive air suspension is featured as well, which fits the crossover nature of the Nanuk. Drivers are given a range of 2.76 inches of height adjustment, though Audi doesn't mention the car's minimum or maximum ground clearance.
