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.

    LTE technology puts Audi in the driver's seat

    Thu, 02 Jan 2014 02:58:00 EST

    The recently-launched Audi A3 Sportback was first-to-market with Long Term Evolution (LTE), or 4G, and LTE integration for connectivity on the move is an idea swirling all through the automotive world. Automakers see the faster speeds and faster responses of LTE compared to 3G as making it possible to one day have streaming video, cloud gaming, more intensive apps and even a virtual office with videoconferencing in your car. It will also enable more progress in machine-to-machine (M2M) adoption, giving cars a real-time ability to speak to one another and to infrastructure.
    A video by Audi Deutschland looks at what might be possible not only for the average driver in an LTE-equipped car, but how a professional chauffeur might make the most of a car that can help him get his VIP passengers from carport to red carpet safely and on time. You can watch it below.

    2014 Audi A6, A7 and Q5 TDI diesel models get pricing and fuel economy figures [w/videos]

    Tue, 11 Jun 2013 13:59:00 EST

    Last year, Audi announced that it was expanding its lineup of TDI models for 2014 with the Q5, A6 and A7 joining the diesel-burning Q7 and A8 L models already in existence. The Q7 TDI has been out for a few years now and we recently drove the A8 L TDI, but now Audi has released the pricing, performance and fuel economy details for the 2014 Q5 TDI, A6 TDI and the ever-stylish A7 TDI. Down the road, Audi has also promised a TDI version of the next-generation A3 that will debut for 2014.
    Until the new A3 TDI shows up, the Q5 will be the most affordable diesel model in Audi's lineup, with a starting price of $46,500 to go with fuel economy estimates of 24 mpg city and 31 mpg highway. The closely related A6 and A7 will get identical fuel economy numbers of 24 city and 38 highway in diesel form, with the A6 TDI starting at $57,500 and the A7 TDI starting at $66,900. In the three new TDI applications, Audi's 3.0-liter V6 produces 240 horsepower and 428 pound-feet of torque, and all models are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Scroll down for videos (stock running footage) and more information on the Q5 TDI, A6 TDI and A7 TDI, all of which go on sale in late summer.

    Audi A3 E-Tron is a look at battery-operated things to come

    Tue, 05 Mar 2013 16:22:00 EST

    Audi officially unveiled the A3 Sportback E-Tron at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. While not a production model, the plug-in hybrid gives us a good glimpse at what the German automaker has in store for future products. The five-door gets around thanks to parallel hybrid drivetrain comprised of a turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine and a small electric motor integrated into the vehicle's six-speed dual-clutch transmission. While the four-cylinder churns up 150 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, the motor contributes 100 horsepower and 242 lb-ft of twist. All told, the design allows the E-Tron to serve up its full power from just 1,750 rpm.
    An 8.8-kWh lithium-ion battery sits under the floor beneath the rear seat, complete with a liquid cooling system designed to keep the pack in its optimum temperature range. The A3 Sportback E-Tron can be charged in as little as 2.5 hours with a 3.6-kW charger, yielding an EV range of up to 31 miles. The machine can also travel using the electric motor, ICE or a combination of the two for a total range of 584 miles. Check out the full press release below.
